Apple Granted Patent for VR Headset

Posted by Technology & Innovation on February 19, 2015 at 5:04am 0 Comments

Apple, seeking to compete against Google and Samsung in the virtual reality (VR) market, has been awarded a patent for an iPhone-compatible headset.

The new technology includes a “head-mounted display” with a slot for inserting an IPhone and viewing screen contents through the device.

Samsung introduced a similar product-the Gear VR- compatible with Galaxy smart phones, and Google released a comparative technology in Cardboard; Facebook acquired gaming headset-maker Oculus Rift last year for $2 billion.

Apple’s patent had been originally filed in September 2008, evolving overtime to include upgraded specifications. While an official release date has yet to be released, virtual reality remains a frontier of interest in addition to the development of driverless cars.

For a novel that's been adapted into ten different films, Brewster's Millions seems to still have some life in its pages.

And just when we'd thought we'd heard the last gasp for any sort of modern shot at a revival, a new Brewster's Millions remake has arrived and it brought a director along for the ride! Variety has reported that Robert Townsend, director of such classics ...

The Magnificent Seven Cast Is Starting To Look... Magnificent


The original John Sturges-directed The Magnificent Seven had an absolutely stacked cast. Playing the titular group, the western brought together the likes of Yul Brynner, Steve McQueen, Charles Bronson, Eli Wallach, Robert Vaughn, Brad Dexter, and James Coburn. That obviously gives the upcoming Antoine Fuqua-directed remake quite a standard to live up to, but the film is well on its way to making something... well, magnificent. News has come down from Variety that yet another big name has joined the Magnificent Seven cast – so we figured we'd shine a spotlight on this rapidly growing, awesome ensemble. The film still isn't ...

To think I almost gave up

Rewind back to 2010, I was alone. I had lost everything. I'm not going into major details, but lets just say that any divorce can be messy. I had no job, the bank was coming to repo my red Chevy Cobalt 2dr sport, I had lost my house, left a lot of things behind in another state, and was living back in my old bedroom at my parents house that seemed no bigger than a somewhat wealthy person's bathroom. It's small, trust me.
