Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang compares the Omniverse and the metaverse

Nvidia announced yesterday it was launching an open beta for the Omniverse, a virtual environment the company describes as a “metaverse” for engineers.

CEO Jensen Huang showed a demo of the Omniverse, where engineers can work on designs in a virtual environment, as part of the keynote talk at Nvidia’s GPU Technology Conference, a virtual event being held online this week. More than 30,000 people from around the world have signed up to participate.

The Omniverse is a virtual tool that allows engineers to collaborate. It was inspired by the science fiction concept of the metaverse, the universe of virtual worlds that are all interconnected, like in novels such as Snow Crash and Ready Player One. I asked Huang whether Nvidia was interested in creating the consumer version of the metaverse, and what technology would be needed to create it.

Huang said Nvidia’s view of the metaverse is threefold.

Trump Compares COVID-19 to Flu in Tweet, Twitter Raises Red Flag | Technology News

(Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump played down the COVID-19 pandemic again, comparing it to the flu in a tweet on Tuesday, and Twitter Inc responded by putting a warning label on the tweet, saying the post included potentially misleading information.

“Flu season is coming up! Many people every year, sometimes over 100,000, and despite the Vaccine, die from the Flu. Are we going to close down our Country? No, we have learned to live with it, just like we are learning to live with Covid, in most populations far less lethal!!!” Trump had tweeted. (https://bit.ly/34yYBaS)

Earlier in the day, Facebook Inc removed a similar post by Trump, according to CNN.

The tweet comes hours after Trump was discharged from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland.

On Monday, Trump told Americans “to get out there” and not fear COVID-19 as he returned to the White House after

Video Compares the Size of Science Fiction Starships

Science-fiction is fun because physics and lack of technology aren’t constraints. You can create any building or vehicle you can imagine, no matter how big or fast. Just as important though is that you don’t have to worry about tedious things like budgets or having enough building materials. And when you’re free to make anything you want, no matter how ludicrous, you can get really, really outrageous. But as this new size comparison video shows, even when you think you’ve dreamed up something so enormous it defies belief, someone else has made something even more ridiculous.

And that something is Ringworld.

The fantastic YouTube channel MetaBallStudios from Álvaro Gracia Montoya is back with another size comparison video. Previously he’s shown us the difference in scope between fictional vehicles and aircraft. This latest one is an extra long, updated version of different fictional starships. It might also be his most

Samsung Galaxy Fold2 review: How smartphone, tablet compares

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Samsung’s Galaxy Fold2 will be available Sept. 18, but honestly, I’m not even sure what to actually call the device. And I’m not alone. Even Samsung punted on a label, knighting the Fold2 a “category-defining foldable device.” And Microsoft, which is sort of in the same boat with the new Surface Duo, dubbed its upcoming hardware “a dual-screen mobile device.”

Notice they didn’t call them smartphones. Or tablets. Or even foldable phones. Which is smart. Because the Fold2 – or the Surface Duo, for that matter – is a package of all of those things that, as a consequence, won’t compare well against any one of those things.

The Fold2’s 6.2-inch exterior screen, for example, is smaller than you’ll find on today’s premium smartphones. Likewise,
