Remember Virtual Reality? The Buzz Is About Gone at CES 2019

NEW YORK (AP) --- Just a few years ago, virtual reality was poised to take over the world. After decades of near misses, the revolution finally seemed imminent, with slick consumer headsets about to hit the market and industries from gaming and entertainment to social media ready to hop on the bandwagon. But the buzz over VR has faded to a whisper. At the CES 2019 tech show in Las Vegas, Facebook's Oculus unit isn't holding any glitzy press events, just closed-door demos for its upcoming Oculus Quest, a $399 untethered headset due out in the spring. Other VR companies are similarly subdued. HTC announced two new headsets --- one with only sketchy details --- while Sony has some kiosks...Keep on reading: Remember Virtual Reality?

With blockbuster effects, Peter Jackson brings WWI to life

NEW YORK --- Peter Jackson has used digital wizardry to conjure J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth and King Kong's 1930s New York, but he has now --- in perhaps his most acclaimed film --- employed all his technical powers to bring to life the Western Front of the first World War. Jackson's "They Shall Not Grow Old" is the 57-year-old filmmaker's first documentary. Commissioned by Britain's Imperial War Museum to coincide with the centenary of the Armistice, Jackson assembled the film from more than 100 hours of footage from the front and 600 hours of audio interviews conducted in the 1960s with surviving British soldiers. In the course of the five-year project, Jackson restored the...Keep on reading: With blockbuster effects, Peter Jackson brings WWI to life.....»»

LONDON --- For kids growing up in today's cashless society, the piggy bank is going virtual. Father of two Roland Hall turned to a British startup's digital pocket money app because his kids were still too young to get bank cards from traditional banks. With prepaid debit cards linked to the app, Hall's kids, aged 8 and 10, can spend their allowance and chore money by shopping online or by tapping at contactless payment terminals in stores. Sound like a recipe for splurging? Not so, he said. "When kids have cash they want to spend it quickly. They want to go to the shops and spend it on rubbish," said Hall, an IT project manager.
