Apple is focusing its rumored interest in the augmented reality space on creating a new pair of AR glasses with Carl Zeiss, according to a new report. The tech titan is working with the German optics manufacturer on a pair of lightweight AR/mixed reality glasses, according to tech evangelist Robert Scoble. The project, which could be announced as early as this year, was confirmed by a Zeiss employee, Scoble wrote in a Facebook post Monday. Unlike virtual reality, which promises to immerse goggle-wearing users in new and exciting digital worlds, AR overlays images and data atop the real world. The best-known example of AR today is Pokemon Go, in which Pokemon characters appear on players’ phone screens amid the streets or parks they’re exploring. Apple’s hinted before it was more interested in augmented reality than virtual reality. In September, Apple CEO Tim Cook told ABC News that he saw bigger possibilities for AR than VR, since … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Apple said to be working on AR glasses with Carl Zeiss
PARK CITY, Ky. -- In the hills of western Kentucky, Eve Haney fires an AR-15. Haney is a 62-year-old grandmother from Tallahassee, Florida. She's competing in a shooting match organized by A Girl and a Gun, a national group of female gun enthusiasts. "I didn't realize how competitive I was. But I am," Haney told CBS News correspondent Mark Strassmann. "I like to see my scores, and I like to hear the 'ping ping ping' of the steel." Fifty-seven-year-old Dr. Laura Torres-Reyes, a retired Air Force colonel, and 42-year-old Robyn Sandoval, a mother of three from Austin, Texas, also compete. "Is it more fun than empowering or empowering than fun?" Strassman asked the women. "Empowering and fun," Torres-Reyes said. But all of them used to hate guns. "Were you scared of them?" Strassmann asked. "I was petrified of them," Torres-Reyes said. "I didn't want them in the house," Haney said. For Sandoval, the turning point was Hurricane Katrina. "First responders were unable to respond and … [Read more...] about Women sharpshooters explain their love for the AR-15 rifle

Here are the victims of the Florida school shooting "Let me give my condolences to all the victims and their families," said store owner Moti Adika. But Adika says the gun isn't the problem.

Let the people speak, Commish Brooklyn: In the past few weeks, two of Bill de Blasio’s commissioners have chastised taxpayers in Voice of the People. First, Transportation Commissioner Polly Trottenberg dismissed the valid concerns former Commissioner for the Aging Herb Stupp raised in a Daily News Op-Ed about the effect of street restructuring on city residents. Stupp’s points have been brought up repeatedly to Trottenberg, her predecessor Janette Sadik-Khan and their minions, only to be dismissed. The second diatribe was from Meenakshi Shrinivasan of the Landmarks Preservation Commission, responding to an Op-Ed by Eric Uhlfelder. To attend an LPC hearing is to witness a fawn-fest of architects slathering praise on each other and the new talent submitting plans. The commission dismisses the concerns of longtime residents and ignores the very real effects of new construction next to hundred-year-old buildings. The commission certifies designs for mini-mansions with no … [Read more...] about Readers sound off on city commissioners, MetroCard machines and AR-15s
