9 Neurotechnology Companies Merging Humans and Machines

The days of living inside a biological human shell are almost over. At least that’s what futurists are hoping for, as we roll out more advanced neurotechnology that allows humans to interface directly with machines. It’s possibly both the most exciting and most alarming thing happening in life sciences right now. We previously looked at […]

Vicarious Surgical Stock – Surgical Robots With VR

“Vicarious Surgical develops virtual reality (VR) software for minimally invasive surgery procedures.” That’s what Crunchbase says today, and that’s what we thought they were doing when we first wrote about the company back in 2017 in a piece titled 15 Virtual Reality Startups in Healthcare. At the time, we didn’t think VR surgeries made much […]

Is Unity Software Stock the Best Way to Invest in VR?

This whole “we’re living in a simulation” theory you hear Mr. Elon Musk talking about should be talked about a whole lot more. Atoms are 99.99% nothing, and everything is made of atoms. Ergo, everything around you is largely nothing. Cognitive psychologist Donald Hoffman believes that our reality today is actually a user interface that […]

Labster – Science Labs in Virtual Reality

If artificial reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) were two college students who just graduated, one would be much further along in their career than the other. Augmented reality has been making some solid strides into enterprise applications. At least two larger stocks we’ve covered – PTC Inc. and TeamViewer – are now offering enterprise […]

Telexistence – Where Virtual Reality Meets Robotics

Sometimes it takes a while before a technology goes mainstream. One prerequisite is a name that conveys what the technology does while sounding good on a boardroom whiteboard. For example, the word “telexistence” seems to describe being able to exist in a particular place remotely. It’s an idea we wrote about four years ago in […]

VR in Architecture, Engineering, and Construction

We recently discussed how both virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) have disappeared from Gartner’s Hype Cycle, yet wide-scale enterprise implementations seem to be lacking. Sure, we’re seeing some interesting use cases pop up like data visualization or drug discovery. But VR needs more than nifty use cases, it needs some real traction. There’s always […]

10 Virtual Reality Applications for Mental Health

In yesterday’s article, we talked about how virtual reality (VR) simulations can be effective in helping surgeons perform preoperative planning because they immerse the user in such a way that the brain makes new connections as it learns. Aside from the obvious gaming applications, VR may now be at a tipping point where it stands to transform many industries including […]

The Future of Medical Imaging Technology for Surgery

Every entrepreneur out there who has tried to get a business off the ground knows how important execution is. Someone else can take your exact same idea, execute on it better than you, and put you out of business. One way to keep other people from using your idea is to have some intellectual property (IP) that […]

The World Leader in Eye Tracking Technology

Elon Musk is not someone you would consider to be daft, yet he thinks there is a one-in-a-million chance that we’re not in a simulation right now. It’s an idea that’s not that far-fetched. Most of us already believe that there is an Almighty Creator who made everything around us what it is. “And on […]

How AI Can Make Smart Robots Smarter

There’s a term that’s been going around called “lights out factories” which refers to manufacturing facilities that are so automated that you don’t even need to leave the lights on because there are no humans around. A company called Rethink Robotics proposed that we turn the lights back on, and allow their robots to work alongside […]
