So, what’s the goal with Gear VR for Samsung? And what are its plans for the future? We asked Nick DiCarlo, VP/GM of immersive products and VR at Samsung, in an interview this morning. Head below for his answers, and for the full list of apps coming to Gear VR today.
Under the selective exposure hypothesis, the researchers proposed that owe prejudiced and high prejudiced would not watch All In The Family to the same extent. To test the hypothesis, they surveyed 237 high school students in a small town in the midwestern United State and a Canadian sample of 168 adults in London Ontario. The people surveyed were asked to respond to a questionnaire with 11 items designed to probe their reactions to the television program to measure their ethnocentrism or prejudice.
We might simply throw our hand: the flip side of the passionate defense of the term curation” by the likes of Sicha and Ahn would be to abandon curation altogether; to find the museum’s true mission in education or participation and turn our backs, temporarily at least, on the museum’s role as filter and organizer of culture. More bravely, we might admit that a museum now needs to know as much about algorithms as art history; that influence is earned not given; and that interpretation is of necessity a collective activity. From there, we can begin to join others in curating the digital world.
Eight of the nation’s nine largest banks now rely on foreign sources for over 40 percent of the their total deposits. Many of these holdings — often the larger portions — are in other industrial countries. But more and more investment is going into the Third World. Citibank, for instance, earns about 75 percent of its profits fro overseas operations, mostly in the Third World.
The creators of the system were excited to see room-scale VR systems like the HTC Vive go on sale, letting you walk around and interact with the virtual world. But when it came to mobile phone powered headsets like the Gear VR, you were always limited to a sitting or standing experience. This is when Interactive Lab decided they needed to try and mash together a motion capture system for tracking and the phone’s built-in sensors for rotation tracking, creating the Move In VR” system.
Like the Cherry Mobile Fuze I recently reviewed, the Excite 470q is also powered by a MediaTek MTK6582M which has four Cortex A7 cores running at 1.3 Ghz and dual core Mali-400MP graphics running at 416 Mhz. It’s also manufactured at 28 nm like all of MediaTek’s current offering. The natural comparison would be between the previous gen MediaTek quad core, the MTK6589. As addressed in the Fuze review, the MTK6582-line is noticeably faster than the MTK6589-line in both CPU and GPU performance.
