two handed manipulationIt is finally happening. After not having a major update since August of 2016, HoloLens owners everywhere will soon get a number of new features added to their devices. At least if they are members of the Windows Insider program. Throughout 2017, the Mixed Reality Team at Microsoft seemed focused on the immersive headsets that were coming out in time for the holiday season. As Microsoft released the Windows 10 Creators update last April and the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update in October, HoloLens developers and owners everywhere watched and wondered why these amazing devices were not being updated in line with the rest of the Windows ecosystem. Thanks to information coming out of the HoloDevelopers Summit, an occasion that readers of our weekly newsletter may have noticed on our event calendar, we now know that not only did attendees of the Summit receive an early update but that a similar update will likely be reaching Windows Insiders by the end of the month. NR50 member Jesse McCulloch, the organizer of the HoloDevelopers Summit, not only confirmed rumors that were circulating but also listed a number of new features that came in the update.

Back in 2016 at WinHEC conference in China, Microsoft unveiled Windows 10 on ARM. This allowed the full desktop version of Windows 10 to run on Qualcomm ARM mobile processors. The “cellular PC” revolution had officially begun. Since then, both Microsoft and Qualcomm were silent about it for an entire year until December of 2017. On 5th of December 2017, Qualcomm held its second annual Snapdragon Tech Summit in Hawaii. Right after announcing the first two Windows 10 on ARM PCs – ASUS NovaGo and HP Envy x2 powered by Snapdragon 835, Qualcomm announced the next-generation Snapdragon 845.

foldable phone from microsoftWe’ve known for a while that Microsoft is working on a mythical Andromeda foldable mobile-form factor device, popularly referred to as Surface Phone. In the last few months, we have discovered several patents providing us with a closer look at how the foldability of the rumored device could work. Judging from all the rumors, Microsoft’s Andromeda (Surface Phone) will feature a hinge that would connect the two screens to produce one single image. Microsoft’s foldable Andromeda will support several form factors, as the foldable screens would be connected to each other by a hinge. We have also hoped for a while that such a device will increase the market share of Windows 10 operating system and attract the Windows Phone users once again as the device will be both a tablet and smartphone when the device is closed shut like a book. Microsoft needs to launch a foldable mobile device or else it will fall behind its competitors since Apple, Google, LG, and Samsung are also working on such a product. We explain why you will need a foldable phone from Microsoft on OUR FORUM.

Microsoft offers free update to Windows 10 Home form Windows 10 S PDF Print E-mail

free upgradeWindows 10 S was the version of Windows which was Streamlined for security and superior performance (as Microsoft said) but there is a huge catch. The users were allowed to use apps which are available only in the Microsoft Store. That wouldn’t have been a bad thing if the Microsoft Store had all the apps a user needed. But it doesn’t, last time I checked. This doesn’t necessarily mean that Windows 10 S is bad. In fact, it isn’t. Windows 10 S is the fastest and most secure version of Windows 10. It is just not aimed at the professional PC users. It is targeted at the Education sector which is more or less dominated by Chrome Books and Macbooks.

Google steps up its augmented reality game with ARCore 1.0 and Google Len PDF Print E-mail

google arcoreGoogle is bringing its latest augmented reality platform out of beta. First announced last year, ARCore is a set of tools software developers can use to create apps that superimpose virtual objects on real-world scenes using a smartphone’s camera and other sensors. It’s not as sophisticated as Google’s Project Tango, which also relied on specialized hardware for better precision. But that means ARCore can run on millions of devices that would never have supported Tango, which is probably why Google killed off Project Tango to focus on ARCore. Now the company says ARCore is out of beta and it’s compatible with 13 different smartphone models at launch (or 100 million phones in the wild, to put it another way). Google says its working with additional phone makers to launch new devices with ARCore support, and it’s likely we’ll see a few of them launched at Mobile World Congress next week. Now that ARCore 1.0 has been released, developers can publish apps that make use of the ARCore SDK to the Play Store. But Google says the updated SDK also adds new features including support for placing virtual items on textured surfaces rather than just flat surfaces. Follow this thread on OUR FORUM.
