Other players in the space are developing elaborate, expensive contraptions to entice users into virtual reality, and the behemoth that is Google just wants people to cut out some corrugated paper and strap phones to their faces?</p> <p>But Android users loved the idea and admired the charming scrapiness; the idea caught on not only with fans, but also within Google. What started as a seeming gimmick has now become a serious point of focus for the company, which says it&rsquo;s hiring for VR-related projects.</p> <p>Maybe that&rsquo;s because some 500,000 Cardboard units have now been built in just a few short months. Whatever the case, Google is now working to make it a better experience for both developers and users alike. On the former point, the company just released an SDK (software development kit) for Android and Unity to get game and app makers into the VR world with minimal hassle.</p> <p>And for users, Google Play now has&nbsp;<a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/collection/promotion_3001011_cardboard_featured_apps">a collection page</a>&nbsp;for Cardboard-centric experiences, including the just-released&nbsp;<a href="https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.jauntvr.preview.jackwhite">3D concert footage of Jack White</a>&nbsp;- similar to the&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/fully-charged-paul-mccartney-live-concert-google-cardboard-truly-amazing-kinect-tech-demo-and-">Paul McCartney app</a>&nbsp;released not long ago.

No doubt, there&rsquo;s a lot of digital magic being poured into these frames (especially to set the tone), but it appears that many of the big, eye-catching moments are being executed in camera instead of fabricated after the fact.

The watches were given away free to anyone who purchased Macintosh System 7.5 during a certain span in 1995, although buyers also had a choice of Conflict Catcher 3 instead of the wearable.

The latest is Nimble VR, a firm that designed a camera/software pairing that allows gesture control by capturing the world around your headset.</p> <p>Nimble VR had been&nbsp;<a href="https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nimblevr/nimble-sense-bring-your-hands-into-virtual-reality">running a Kickstarter campaign</a>&nbsp;to fund the project, which had already beaten its goal and then some, but that was canceled once the acquisition was announced yesterday. With the Rift currently relying on a console game controller for interaction, this purchase hints at future possibilities for the consumer version of the headset.</p> <p>Oculus also just acquired 13th Lab, a company that recreates real-world architecture in 3D for VR exploration, and hired Hollywood motion capture guru Chris Bregler to head a vision research team. With so much varied talent under one roof these days, that has to be an incredibly fascinating place to work.

FIDO - Fast Identification Online - was part of that two-factor initiative, but it has released its first open standard for fully passwordless experiences via fingerprint scanning, and that&rsquo;ll allow manufacturers to tap into a system that works across all sorts of devices.</p> <p>Companies like Samsung, Google, Microsoft, and many more are behind the FIDO Alliance, whose president Michael Barrett tells The Verge, &ldquo;We now really are within range of seeing the world changing.&rdquo; For the future safety of our vital accounts and information, let&rsquo;s hope so.</p> <p>[Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.theverge.com/2014/12/9/7359535/google-backed-password-killer-crosses-major-milestone">The Verge</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/android/fully-charged-google-offers-usb-verification-xbox-one-digital-tuner-allows-mobile-device-tv-">Google adds USB verification support</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> HBO Go planning standalone launch in April </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>We heard&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/android/fully-charged-hbo-planning-standalone-streaming-see-android-lollipop-statue-unveiling-and-ne">back in October</a>&nbsp;that HBO was planning to finally offer a standalone version of its streaming service that doesn&rsquo;t require a cable or satellite service subscription, and now it sounds like that will happen in April. Fortune reports that HBO hopes to have the service ready to go for the season premiere of&nbsp;<em>Game of Thrones</em>.</p> <p>Getting there has apparently caused a bit of turmoil within the company, however. An internal team was building the tech needed to make the platform happen, but higher-ups decided instead to license streaming tech from Major League Baseball&rsquo;s MLB Advanced Media. As a result, HBO&rsquo;s chief technology officer has resigned.</p> <p>Anyway, long story short, standalone HBO Go&nbsp;<em>and</em>&nbsp;the new season of&nbsp;<em>Game of Thrones</em>&nbsp;are apparently only a few months away, so rejoice at our exciting future ahead of sitting around and watching things.</p> <p>[Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://fortune.com/2014/12/09/hbo-streaming/">Fortune</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/android/fully-charged-hbo-planning-standalone-streaming-see-android-lollipop-statue-unveiling-and-ne">HBO to launch streaming-only service in 2015</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="HBO Go" alt="HBO Go" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/hbo-go.jpg?1418260293" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Apple TV update overhauls YouTube </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>We just found out a little something about the potential&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/apple-prepping-motion-control-apple-tv/news">motion-controlled future of Apple TV</a>, but what about now?

It&rsquo;s also believed that tickets for Dolby Cinema films will retail at around 50 percent higher than standard cinema tickets.</p> <p>Films will need to be processed specifically for Dolby Cinema, so the movie studios need to get on board too.

And that&#39;s because Cory Barlog, creative director at Sony&rsquo;s Santa Monica Studio and director of&nbsp;<em>God of War II</em>, said that the studio is working on a new&nbsp;<em>God of War</em>&nbsp;game.</p> <p>According to IGN, Barlog said it&rsquo;s not a prequel and that more info will come within &ldquo;the next year or two,&rdquo; so it could be some time before first details come along. Last year&rsquo;s&nbsp;<em>God of War: Ascension</em>&nbsp;was a solid prequel, but less rapturously-received than the core trilogy. Hopefully a new proper sequel on PS4 can reignite enthusiasm in the franchise.</p> <p>[Source:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/12/06/next-god-of-war-officially-confirmed-to-be-in-development">IGN</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/playstation-3/god-war-ascension/review">God of War: Ascension review</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="750" title="God of War" alt="God of War" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/sony-god-of-war.jpg?1418081813" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-3"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Disney figured out CG eyes </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The next frontier in nailing the look of digital humans?

Just 12,300 units are being made, so it&rsquo;ll be super hard to come by. But no matter which kind of PS4 you have, you can at least give it a little throwback flair.</p> <p>That&rsquo;s thanks to the free new 20th anniversary theme on the PlayStation Store, which is available for PS4 as well as PlayStation 3 and Vita. It adds a grey colour scheme and new icons, along with floating 3D controller button logos, but the absolute best part is the addition of the PSone&rsquo;s startup music once you sign in.

But executives claim that it&rsquo;s simply an effort to make sure kids can get to what they really want more easily, while still allowing parents some level of supervision. In the USA Today piece, the example is used that a kid searching for trains probably doesn&rsquo;t want real-world schedules, but perhaps access to Thomas the Tank Engine.</p> <p>And search will probably be a big focus, along with Chrome and YouTube, which already attract child users but could certainly be better tailored for younger needs and minds. &ldquo;We want to be thoughtful about what we do&hellip; we want kids to be safe, but ultimately it&#39;s about helping them be more than just pure consumers of tech, but creators, too,&rdquo; says Google&rsquo;s Pavni Diwanji, vice president of engineering.</p> <p>[Source: <a href="http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2014/12/03/google-products-revamped-for-under-13-crowd/19803447/">USA Today</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/christmas-2013/christmas-gift-guide-12-gadget-gifts-tech-kids/feature">Christmas Gift Guide: 14 gadget gifts for tech kids</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="675" title="Google" alt="Google" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/google-logo-lots.jpg?1417745660" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-2"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Watch an hour of Halo 5 multiplayer </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Well, it&rsquo;s 59 minutes, but who&rsquo;s really counting?

Filming begins tomorrow with Daniel Craig reprising his role as 007, and alongside him will be returning cast members Ralph Fiennes, Naomie Harris, Ben Whishaw and Rory Kinnear.

Now, companies like it and others can simply put a small logo or bit of text into the image and expect that those with high-end sets will make out the advert.</p> <p>To pursue this unique endeavor, Sony has teamed up with Arsenal and France international player Olivier Giroud and adorned his boots with pint-sized references to its 4K televisions. Granted, if you have a 4K TV, you might not want another; and if you don&rsquo;t, it might just look blurry. But we&rsquo;re all for anything that makes ads a lot less obvious and obnoxious.</p> <p><strong>READ MORE: <a href="http://www.stuff.tv/kd-55x8505b/sony-kd-55x8505b-4k-tv/review">Sony KD-55X8508B 4K TV review</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Olivier Giroud for Sony" alt="Olivier Giroud for Sony" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/sony-olivier-giroud-4k.jpg?1417048529" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/my/apple/fully-charged-michael-fassbender-play-steve-jobs-full-jurassic-world-trailer-and-gta5-leads-uk#comments 4K Apple Console games Film and TV Gaming Grand Theft Auto 5 Sony Thu, 27 Nov 2014 00:30:00 +0000 Tein Hee Seow 1454033 at http://www.stuff.tv Fully Charged: First Jurassic World teaser, Evolve’s add-on maps will be free, and Google’s Internet balloons can last for months http://www.stuff.tv/my/evolve/fully-charged-first-jurassic-world-teaser-evolve-s-add-maps-are-free-and-google-s-internet-ba <div class="field field-type-text field-field-standfirst"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> All the news you missed, now in easily digestible chunks </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Jurassic World" alt="Jurassic World" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/jurassic-world-teaser.jpg?1416875162" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/my/users/andrew-hayward" title="View user profile.">Andrew Hayward</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Jurassic World teaser released </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The&nbsp;<em>Jurassic Park</em>&nbsp;franchise will return to cinemas after a 14-year breather - probably for the best following&nbsp;<em>Jurassic Park III</em>&nbsp;- next summer with&nbsp;<em>Jurassic World</em>, and over the weekend, Universal Pictures released the first teaser trailer for the film.</p> <p>It doesn&rsquo;t show a whole lot, but you&rsquo;ll catch a quick glimpse of the new park&rsquo;s updated tech, as well as Chris Pratt as the lead character, a staff member at Jurassic Park.

But these are no ordinary balloons, and Google has apparently made strides over the last year of active development.</p> <p>According to Google, the current balloons can last 10 times longer in the stratosphere than last year&rsquo;s model, with many floating 100 days or more - the longest so far has been 130 days. Google has also refined the manufacturing side of things, and each balloon can be automatically filled in about five minutes, with the company able to launch up to 20 balloons per day.</p> <p>Thus far, Project Loon balloons have traveled more than 3 million kilometers, although it&rsquo;s unclear just when the project will become widely available for areas without more traditional Internet access options.</p> <p>[Source:&nbsp;<a href="https://plus.google.com/+ProjectLoon/posts/dqHoYWHjHxy">Google</a>&nbsp;via&nbsp;<a href="http://www.engadget.com/2014/11/21/google-project-loon-improvements/">Engadget</a>]</p> <p><strong>READ MORE:&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/my/google/google-almost-built-jetpack/news">Google almost built a jetpack</a></strong></p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="1200" height="900" title="Project Loon" alt="Project Loon" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/google-project-loon.jpg?1416875162" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> http://www.stuff.tv/my/evolve/fully-charged-first-jurassic-world-teaser-evolve-s-add-maps-are-free-and-google-s-internet-ba#comments Evolve Film and TV Gaming Google Mon, 24 Nov 2014 07:30:00 +0000 Tein Hee Seow 1453868 at http://www.stuff.tv
