Watch: Apple’s Vision Pro is going viral with the public on internet

Posted by in categories: computing, internet

Apple has always been known for its innovative products, but its latest creation might be its most ambitious. The Apple Vision Pro is a headset that promises to revolutionize how we interact with technology by seamlessly blending the digital and physical worlds.

The device, which costs a whopping $3,500, has already hit the stores and attracted much attention. Some people are eager to try out the new possibilities of spatial computing, while others are mocking the sight of people wearing the bulky and futuristic-looking gadget.

One of the first to test the Apple Vision Pro in the real world was Casey Neistat, a popular social media personality and filmmaker. In a video posted on Saturday, he showed how he used the device in its passthrough mode, allowing him to see his surroundings through cameras and screens while accessing various virtual features.

Hafnia Breakthrough Paves Way for Ultra-Fast, Efficient, Cheap Computer Memory

Posted by in categories: computing, materials

Scientists outline new processes for leveraging hafnia’s ferroelectric features with the aim of enhancing high-performance computing.

Scientists and engineers have been pushing for the past decade to leverage an elusive ferroelectric material called hafnium oxide, or hafnia, to usher in the next generation of computing memory. A team of researchers including the University of Rochester’s Sobhit Singh published a Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences study outlining progress toward making bulk ferroelectric and antiferroelectric hafnia available for use in a variety of applications.

In a specific crystal phase, hafnia exhibits ferroelectric properties—that is, electric polarization that can be changed in one direction or another by applying an external electric field. This feature can be harnessed in data storage technology. When used in computing, ferroelectric memory has the benefit of non-volatility, meaning it retains its values even when powered off, one of several advantages over most types of memory used today.

Google signs its largest offshore wind projects to power data centres

Posted by in category: computing

The mega tech company’s ambition is to operate on carbon-free energy by 2030.

In its most substantial offshore wind project deal to date, Google has signed power purchase agreements (PPAs) for over 700 megawatts of clean energy to power its European data centers.

The company’s announcement is in line with its ambitious goal to achieve net-zero emissions across all of its operations and value chain by 2030, as per Google’s Environmental Report published last year.

How Invisible Light Is Shaping the Future of High-Speed Computing

Posted by in categories: computing, materials

New ultrafast method for controlling magnetic materials might enable next-generation information processing technologies.

As demands for computing resources continue to increase rapidly, scientists and engineers are looking for ways to build faster systems for processing information. One possible solution is to use patterns of electron spins, called spin waves, to transfer and process information much more rapidly than in conventional computers. So far, a major challenge has been in manipulating these ultrafast spin waves to do useful work.

Breakthrough in Spin Wave Manipulation.
