Is Virtual Reality Here To Stay?

Last week, Virtuix announced a $3 million round of seed funding to complete its flagship product, the Omni virtual reality treadmill. While a far cry from Facebook’s $2 billion acquisition of Oculus, the Virtuix investment is yet another indication that investors believe in the potential of virtual reality. Speaking with GamesIndustry International after the funding was announced, Virtuix CEO Jan Goetgeluk stopped short of crediting the Facebook deal with drumming up investor interest, but...

Does Apache Need To Be Patched?

Apache Software Foundation released an advisory warning that a patch issued in March for a zero-day vulnerability in Apache Struts did not fully patch the bug. Apparently, the patch for the patch is in development and will be released likely within the next 72 hours. Rene Gielen of the Apache Struts team said that once the release is available, all Struts 2 users are strongly recommended to update their installations. ASF provided a temporary mitigation that users are urged to apply. On March 2,...

Could Dark Matter Use Asteroids To Destroy Earth?

Could Dark Matter Use Asteroids To Destroy Earth?

Dark matter could sling lethal meteors at Earth, potentially causing mass extinctions like the cataclysm that ended the Age of Dinosaurs, Harvard scientists say. Physicists think the mysterious, invisible substance called dark matter makes up five-sixths of all matter in the universe. It was first detected by the strength of its gravitational pull, which apparently helps keep the Milky Way and other galaxies from spinning apart, given the speeds at which they whirl. Scientists have recently suggested...

3D Printer Capable Of Printing Game Controller, Thanks To Stanford U Students

Stanford University graduate students have created an 3D printer attachment that lays down functioning circuitry right alongside the thermoplastic extruder head of an existing machine, enabling it to make functioning electronic prototypes. “Our project enables 3D printers to deposit conductive material along with traditional plastic. The conductive material can be embedded within the 3D model and printed in the same 3D printing process,” said Alex Jais, one of three students that created...

Will A Raspberry-Pi Smartphone Come To Market?

A Linux engineer has built the first smartphone based on a Raspberry Pi computer, and has cleverly named it the Piphone. Liz Upton of the Raspberry Pi Foundation lauded the device in a blog post on Friday, largely due to the fact that it cost just $158 to build. What’s more, the Piphone is constructed entirely from off the shelf components, which means “there’s no soldering required, and no fiddly electronics work,” she said. The components consist of a 2.8in 320×420...

Can ExoMoons Harbor E.T.?

In the Star Wars universe, everyone’s favourite furry aliens, the Ewoks, famously lived on the “forest moon of Endor”. In scientific terms, the Ewok’s home world would be referred to as an exomoon, which is simply a moon that orbits an exoplanet – any planet that orbits a star other than our sun. Although more than 1,000 exoplanets have been discovered since the first one was found in 1995, only a handful of those are thought to be habitable, at least by life as we know it. New research...

Mobile Broadband Providers May Share U.S. Military Spectrum

The U.S. military may have to share its radar frequencies with mobile broadband providers under a plan the Federal Communications Commission is developing under the  name Citizens Broadband Radio Service. CBRS isn’t exactly a broadband version of Citizens Band radio — which still exists, at astonishingly low frequencies around 27MHz — but the FCC’s description of what it might be used for suggests a broad range of options. They include licensed carrier cells, fixed wireless...

ARM To Focus More On 64-bit SoC

ARM To Focus More On 64-bit SoC

ARM announced its first 64-bit cores a while ago and SoC makers have already rolled out several 64-bit designs. However, apart from Apple nobody has consumer oriented 64-bit ARM devices on the market just yet. They are slowly starting to show up and ARM says the transition to 64-bit parts is accelerating. However, the first wave of 64-bit ARM parts is not going after the high-end market. Is 64-bit support on entry-level SoCs just a gimmick? This trend raises a rather obvious question – are low...
