Published on 1 Months ago 245 views 0 Comments
Recently, the U.S. patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) recently announced an Apple authorized patent related to digital crown, or a future MR head display component for apple.
In fact, rumors about Apple's MR head display device have been circulating for a long time, and the predicted time of the device's launch has changed again and again.
Guo Mingxuan, a famous apple analyst, previously claimed that Apple's first head display device would not be on the market until 2022 at the earliest. Shortly after, Guo Mingxuan released his personal predicted timetable for Apple's MR head display on twitter, believing that Apple's MR head display might be on the market in the second quarter of 2023.
It is worth mentioning that AR / VR head display is considered as the key entrance to the metauniverse, but "metauniverse" seems to have become a forbidden word in apple. Cook said in an interview with Time magazine: "metauniverse and Ar are obviously two different words, and we will only call them ar."
Apple's Mr device combines the characteristics of VR and AR, which means that Mr technology can make the real world and the virtual world coexist and interact instantly.
Whether Mr head display can become the most important product in the metauniverse remains to be seen.
Judson Althoff, global executive vice president and chief business officer of Microsoft, posted an article on Microsoft's official website from resilience to digital constancy: all industries use digital technology to meet the changes of the times. He pointed out in the article that the industrial metauniverse has the potential to simultaneously improve supply chain flexibility, business efficiency and sustainability.
Earlier, Microsoft had announced that Kawasaki heavy industries had become a new customer of its "industrial metauniverse" business. It assisted production, maintenance and supply chain management by wearing head display devices. In addition to Microsoft, NVIDIA, a technology giant, will also realize industrial metauniverse through Omniverse platform, AI and computing technologies.
It can be seen that the industrial metauniverse has great economic value. Its application scenarios will cover the whole life cycle of products from R & D to after-sales service, and promote the efficient development of the physical industry. Compared with the consumption meta universe, the industrial meta universe can bring many substantive changes in technology production and other aspects.
The era of meta universe is coming, and we are full of expectation. The following is the detailed content of this issue of the weekly. We divided it into two parts: important news and news of this week. Please enjoy:

Like open source software, it creates potential for a rich and expanded ecosystem. According to the article, cc0 licensing makes it easier for creators to "grasp the cultural gene of production".

This is consistent with the concept of open sharing and community building in crypto culture.
