HoloLens 2 at MWC

At Mobile World Congress, Microsoft launched HoloLens 2, an update to its mixed reality headset. HoloLens 2 lets you interact with digital objects using natural hand gestures, openning new doors for developers working on AR-VR-driven training programs.

At the same event, IoT company PTC discussed how its customer Howden deploys digital twins using augmented reality (AR).

Microsoft has announced pricing options, both for the device itself and for a combo package that includes a communication app.

NVIDIA Gets Ready for GTC

Next week, the GPU Technology Conference (GTC) hosted by NVIDIA returns to San Jose. Though historically a graphics accelerator developer, NVIDIA has significantly expanded its domain. (See NVIDIA to Acquire Mellanox for $6.9 Billion). It has now dubbed GTC as “The Premiere AI Conference.”

Chaos Group will be among the exhibitors at GTC. The company is poised to participate in talks and showcase its latest plug-in—V-Ray Next for Rhino. There's good news for Rhino plug-in Grasshopper user as well.

The long-running Congress on the Future of Engineering Software (COFES) comes to the heart of the Silicon Valley this year. Now run by COFES Institute, a nonprofit, the show promises fresh content and a celebration of its legacy. The show has also announced keynote speakers and locked in big name sponsors.
