Upon turning it on, it’s simple to choose between apps, downloads, external media and more using its intuitive touchscreen. Videos can even be downloaded directly from apps like Netflix and YouTube for offline viewing.

“After spending months working with some of the most talented audio-visual engineers on the planet, we’re really thrilled that the public is as excited about this project as we are” said a PIQO spokesperson. He continued: “As funding continues on Indiegogo, we’re putting our heads together again to bring further perks and features to our backers.”

Other groundbreaking aspects of the PIQO projector include:

• Fast battery charge: Just a 15-minute charge provides enough power for one hour of video playback.
• Keystone angle correction: Users on the go will love this feature that automatically adjusts the projection angle using advanced internal gravity sensors. This means PIQO can be placed on uneven surfaces without distorting the picture or affecting image quality.

iGlass provide total Privacy protection and zero pressure on nose, it allows daily prescription glasses underneath as well

iGlass, the $299 First Mobile AR Theater in the United States, and the First Mobile Phone Tethered AR Theater in the World, is now invented in Silicon Valley.

MILPITAS, CA, USA, January 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — “iGlass, the $299 First Mobile AR Theater in the United States, and the First Mobile Phone Tethered AR Theater in the World, your 30-foot Semi-Transparent 3D TV On-The-Go, with total privacy protection, is now invented and ready to be demonstrated in Silicon Valley,” says Sam Yuan, CEO of iGlass USA inc.

iGlass USA inc, an advanced technology company in Silicon Valley, is making $299 affordable, sociable, 130g feather-light, palm-sized small iGlass AR Theater, tethered to your Mobile phone by a single light weight USB-C cable, providing an 30-foot total-privacy theater size gigantic screen with ultra-sharp and vivid image, for Best Mobile Viewing of YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Sports Live Streaming, 3D Avatar, Victoria Secret Fashion Show, Twitch Gaming Streaming, etc., in College Dorm, on Airplane, Train, Bus, 2nd Row of Car or at Home.

“We clearly see the trend in the industry, iGlass USA inc is here to be the pioneer for the emerging 5G era. iGlass has unique novel technologies to deliver gigantic screen size with ultra high image quality, accurate color, full mobility and total privacy protection, yet the technology is very affordable. Comparing to other expensive AR headsets like the Microsoft HoloLens or Magic Leap One, with price stickers well over $2000, iGlass is priced at $299, a fraction of those AR headsets out there. At $299 consumer price point, I firmly believe all other AR players will have a hard time to compete with iGlass,” says Sam in a recent talk.

“Unlike streaming on your Phone, PAD or TV, where others can easily spot what you are watching, iGlass Mobile XR Glasses projects the content directly to your retina, so you are the only person who can see the 30-foot giant virtual screen floating in front of you. You could well be watching your favorite Victoria Secret Fashion Show without concerning your next seat neighbor on the airplane knows what you are enjoying. This type of experience is what we called Total Privacy Protection on iGlass,” says Sam.

“Unlike VR devices, iGlass does not create social isolation; you can eye contact with people around. Since you can directly see the darkened environmental background, wearing iGlass in public places is safe, without the type of risks like bumping into things or missing the train or plane during an immersive experience,” says Sam.

“For the immersive VR device, you lost the vital ability of environmental awareness thus you lost the key ability of being mobile. You are tied to a fixed space and no longer able to move around as you will bump into things around. This is the fundamental reason why VR has a very weak tie to 5G and mobility, because 5G is a Mobile infrastructure, not developed for non-moveable things fixed in space like PC, TV or VR,” says Sam.

“Also, all VR headsets suffer from the notorious VR motion sickness, which happens when your eyes tell your brain you’re moving around in a virtual environment, but your body feels like it’s standing still, such conflict caused dizziness is the Achilles heel of all VR headsets. On the other hand, since iGlass AR allows you directly seeing the darkened stable environmental background, it is motion-sickness-free, which is one of the major experience advantages of our iGlass. It dramatically improves user experience, especially for new users. The learning curve is simply lowered noticeably, which makes iGlass a leisurely entertainment gadget for novice users,” Sam adds.

“iGlass USA inc strongly believe the success of AR largely lays on the existing of a simple plug-and-play device that lets a novice user engage casually, similar to the approach that Nintendo wanted its Switch to create a device that could play "leisurely" video games along games that are aimed to be played "deeply". iGlass USA inc wanted its iGlass to provide a "leisurely, non-immersive" GIANT SCREEN entertainment experience, on-the-go or at home,” continues Sam.

“iGlass AR is amazingly comfortable to wear too, it is less than one third the weight of most AR VR headsets out there today (i.e., Microsoft HoloLens Measured at 550g, the Sony PlayStation VR measured at 683g, the latest Oculus Go VR headset measured at 487g). At 130 grams ultra-light-weight, iGlass Mobile AR Theater has reach the point for all day long wearing, even for a 5 years old kid,” says Sam.

The 130g weight is evenly distributed on your forehead, there is absolutely NO pressure on your nose or your face, and you can comfortably wear your daily prescription glasses underneath iGlass, very easy and convenient, no habit changing required”, Sam adds.

“Technology wise, iGlass AR is revolutionary in term of provided a brand-new, small-size, light-weight, affordable, gigantic-screen-size, ultra high image quality and high color accuracy AR display core tech to the emerging AR industry, enabling this sector to jump start to its next phase — massive consumer adoption,” Sam continues.

“To me, this small, lightweight, sociable, total-privacy 30-foot gigantic screen, motion-sick free gadget could have important business applications too. Imagine all Airlines start adding the 130-gram, palm-sized iGlass AR on each of theirs seats, replacing the heavy and small 10-inch screen LCD based entertainment systems current out there on the airplanes, the weight and space saving on the airplanes simply equals $$$ saving for the Airlines, for each trip. More importantly, iGlass' private 30-foot giant screen brings invaluable user experience on the road, making the trip a pleasant relaxation period for the passengers. I would guess all Airplanes have to adapt to iGlass Mobile AR Theater sooner or later, as going Giant-Screen experience is the trend and no business can against the trend,” says Sam.

“I feel something big could be coming, the 5G mobile entertainment landscape could well be changed.” Sam predicts.

"If you want to learn more about iGlass, in this 1.2 million people watched Video, Linus Tech Tips provided a detailed introduction on iGlass," continues Sam.

New Business Utilizing Customer Data –

MINATO-KU, TOKYO, JAPAN, January 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Uhuru Corporation (“Uhuru”) announced today an agreement with NEC Corporation (“NEC”) to enter into an alliance for business in the IoT realm.

The two companies will conduct joint development of an integrated service combining NEC’s IoT platform “NEC the WISE IoT Platform (*1)” and Uhuru’s IoT Orchestration Service “enebular®” to support companies in operating and managing IoT devices properly and in utilizing data obtained from the devices. Uhuru and NEC will also engage in sales promotion activities and provide support for clients in generating new business utilizing the service.

The new version of “enebular”, containing results from this collaborative effort, will be released in January 2019.

To streamline business operation, save energy consumption, reduce manpower and reduce costs by utilizing data obtained from devices that are being used, more companies are engaging in efforts to use their devices for IoT. While IoT allows data utilization through collection and visualization of data or advanced and diversified analysis by AI, risk of becoming the target of cyber-attacks arises. Features that protect IoT devices and data from such threats and enable secure operation and management are becoming increasingly essential.

Given the trend, Uhuru provides “enebular”, a development and operation service that supports creation of IoT products and services. “enebular” enables easy utilization of customer data through development of applications and solutions and seamless system integration.

NEC provides IoT security products, including IoT Device Security Manager (*3), Lightweight cipher software development kit (*4) and SecureWare/Credential Lifecycle Manager (*5), ensuring high-level security indispensable for IoT systems.

In addition, by utilizing “enebular” on “NEC the WISE IoT Platform”, which allows efficient data collection and use of cutting-edge AI technology, an operation environment that integrates the edge and the cloud will be provided, helping clients generate new value through management and utilization of data obtained from devices.

Based on this alliance, Uhuru and NEC aim to deliver new value to existing clients and to enforce cultivation of new clients. The targeted revenue in the two years from 2019 to 2020 is JPY 2 billion.

Joint development of “enebular” involves embedding NEC’s software delivery feature into enebular’s functionality to deliver software to and manage IoT devices equipped with Arm® Mbed™ OS (*6) (“Arm device(s)”) to achieve highly efficient software delivery. By utilizing “enebular” on “NEC the WISE IoT Platform”, the service can be used to operate Arm devices and by collecting and accumulating obtained sensor data on “NEC the WISE IoT Platform”, various kinds of analysis can be done in collaboration with “NEC the WISE (*7)”. For example, by analyzing various sensor data collected by Arm devices embedded in smart home appliances, signs of possible malfunction can be detected.

Services for utilizing IoT devices and data obtained from the clients’ IoT devices and for ensuring secure management from development to disposition of devices will also be provided by combining “enebular” with NEC’s IoT security technology.

The two companies will take advantage of their sales channels to support sales promotion of IoT solutions utilizing “enebular” and the clients’ efforts to generate new business. Uhuru and NEC will help clients, mainly private corporations in manufacturing and distribution, streamline product development and device operation management, as well as generate new business by utilizing data obtained from products and devices.

Dov Bechhofer Explains the Rise of AR/VR and the Potential These Technologies Have for Our Future

Dov Bechhofer

NEW YORK , NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dov Bechhofer is a computer engineer with an eye for trending tech topics and predictions on how technology can improve or impair our future. Here, he helps explain the rise in popularity of augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), and their place in society’s future.

Screens have revolutionized our lives. First, there were television and theater screens that entertained the masses. Next came computers, which revolutionized every aspect of human life, from work to play and everything in between. Desktops gave way to laptops and tablets all before the smartphone took over in the early 2000s. Dov Bechhofer acknowledges that the first successful AR/VR technology in widespread use came about only because of advancements in smartphone technology.

“Manufacturing AR and VR components that perform as consumers expect them to is way more expensive than people realize, which is why it took so long for these products to become available to consumers,” says Dov Bechhofer.

He mentions that VR devices really only became popular around the time phone carriers retailed headsets alongside their phones for basic VR experiences in the last few years. Similarly, AR gaming (such as the international craze Pokemon Go!) introduced the world to technology’s ability to reconstruct our reality. From projecting cartoon creatures into environments through cell phone screens, people today can use AR technology to interact with their surroundings in new ways and make important purchasing decisions. For example, Wayfair furniture retailer allows app users to project furniture in their rooms and test how products look at home before ever purchasing.

Gaming was also the driving factor behind consumer VR use, with devices like the PlayStation VR headset and the Oculus Rift leading sales around the world––ultimately helping improve all VR tech. When consumers invest in VR gaming technology, they inevitably pay for further research to make products more capable and state-of-the-art.

“Companies like Sony who manufacture VR products want to keep their customers coming back in the future to buy newer and better technology,” says Dov Bechhofer. “They accomplish this by investing their returns in improved gadgets and software, improving the capability for all future VR technology in the process.”

Already, organizations utilize VR technology to educate and train people on specialized topics that benefit from immersion and practice. In one program, engineering students can interact with optics and lasers by building three-dimensional systems that respond in real-time. In the case of chemistry, VRs remove the need to purchase equipment and chemicals (saving millions of dollars and reducing the risk of harm in the process). AR can similarly be used in the future to help cut costs on physical products for a range of studies and career paths.

“VR tackles a lot of the typical restrictions to learning. Educators only need a computer, a VR device, and a savvy program to teach complicated subjects with ease,” says Dov Bechhofer. “If for nothing else than entertainment and education, AR and VR technology will prove to be an invaluable asset moving forward.”

Global Battery Electric Truck Market to Grow 20% in 2019

More than 175,000 electric trucks will be sold globally in 2019, according to a new research report from Interact Analysis.

Just under 180,000 battery electric trucks will be sold in 2019 with most of the demand coming from China”

— Rueben Scriven

IRTHLINGBOROUGH, UNITED KINGDOM, January 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ —

• Sluggish Chinese market offset by explosive growth in other markets
• Light duty trucks to account for lion’s share of volumes
• Just over 4 million electric trucks sold in next 7 years

Despite the positive headlines, the global battery electric truck market contracted by 12% in 2018 owing to a decrease in demand from China. This was primarily due to a subsidy reduction of approximately $11,000, although the tit-for-tat trade war with the US and the looming threat of a Chinese economic slowdown may have also negatively influenced the market. Excluding China, however, the global battery electric truck market grew by a strong 63%.

Rueben Scriven, the report author, comments that “just under 180,000 battery electric trucks will be sold in 2019 with most of the demand coming from China. Outside of China, we forecast that just over 50,000 electric trucks will be sold; an 81% increase from 2018.” Scriven goes on to say, “because of the cost associated with large battery packs, the heavier segments will maintain a small share of the market while the light- and medium-duty segments will combine to make up 98% of the global battery electric truck market.”

Strong, sustained growth to 2025

Interact Analysis forecasts that just over 1.2 million electric trucks will be sold annually in 2025. The EU27 and APAC will make up the majority of the demand while the Middle East, Africa and South America will experience relatively sober growth. The US and Canada will experience moderate growth in absolute volumes but the number of electric trucks as a percentage of the total trucks sold in 2025 will only be 0.7% and 3.6% respectively.

Electric commercial vehicles typically have fewer moving parts than their combustion engine counterparts, meaning that revenue generated from maintenance and servicing will likely be reduced. Given that there will be over 4 million new electric trucks entering the global market in the next 7 years, the provision of new services such as grid management and on-site power generation will become important new revenue streams. New Flyer, Nikola, Chanje and Nissan have taken this approach and many more will follow suit.

Importantly, in markets that adopt electric trucks, the vehicle is becoming less central to the transportation solution, which invites other industries to enter the market. For example, utility companies are positioned well to join the eco-system whereby they supply the charging infrastructure, grid-management and on-site power generation with the potential to lease battery electric commercial vehicles as well.
