As part of its effort to expand further into wearable devices, Apple is working on a set of smart glasses, reports Bloomberg.

Citing sources familiar with Apple's plans, the site says the smart glasses would connect wirelessly to the iPhone, much like the Apple Watch, and would display "images and other information" to the wearer.


Google Glass has died, and they have decided to go full in with VR with their new DayDream, and same as Sony they go full in with VR with their new PlayStation VR headset, but other companies like Microsoft believe an mixture of 'real vision' and AR will be the future with their HoloLens, and Nintendo has proven that with Pokemon Go, people do infact enjoy playing AR based games on their mobile devices, and now we have rumors that Apple might be heading that way also with an dedicated AR headset for use on your iPhone.

Hollywood just got serious about virtual reality: 20th Century Fox’s Fox Innovation Lab released “The Martian VR Experience” from executive producer Ridley Scott and director Robert Stromberg for HTC Vive and PlayStation VR Monday.

It’s not just work, deadlines and meetings on American employees’ minds at their workplace. A new study reveals a large number of Americans play games at work.

According to the U.S. Digital Media Consumers study (PDF) by PayPal, U.S. employees play mobile games (30 percent), PC/laptop games (13 percent), and console games (10 percent) at work.


Recently, PayPal did a massive survey and study on what do video gamers play on and where, and the study finds that the new PlayStation 4 console has taken over the choice over gaming with males instead of PC's, but when it comes to gaming overall, smartphones are still the most used, and sadly its doing working hours, many employees when the boss is not watching is busy playing video games on their mobile devices it seems, instead of doing actual 'work' during their day.

With Games From Demi Lovato And DNCE

As musicians large and small look for new revenue streams to make up for lost sales these days, anything is in play, and the mobile gaming space has seen quite a few big names launch branded offerings that will hopefully entice their fan bases into spending their hard-earned cash on in-app purchases, where there is plenty of money to be made.


Pictures above from left to right is Kevin Jonas, CEO of Philymack, Phil McIntyre and Joe Jonas attend Fast Company Innovation Festival 2016 held recently at Skirball Center, NYU on November 2, 2016 in New York City, where they announced they are forming a new mobile gaming company to release a bunch of free-to-play games based on the name-brand of their signed artists, for fans to enjoy and of course to hopefully rake in tons of money from microtransactions buried thru-out the games that will be needed to...

No crazy promises attached to this pleasant walk-and-survive smartphone game.

Wednesday saw the release of a new video game from famed developer Peter Molyneux and his team at 22Cans. Yes, we were surprised by the news, as well.


Peter is back with a new game, and this is one developer that has gotten alot of 'bad press' over his hyping and promises and not coming thru with them, so instead of getting mixed up again with a bunch of drama like what occur with 'Godus' which was similar to all of Peter's previous games, it didn't live up to the hype, so he has decided to silently releasing his latest mobile game onto the mobile stores without any teasers, hype, or reviews, just let it coast on its on, without any 'hype' or 'press' to turn gamers away.

After establishing OWN as a cable behemoth, the media mogul wants to expand its digital presence and put the brand right in viewers' hands.

It turns out that it might be possible to "live your best life" and still be mildly addicted to a mobile game. That's if Oprah Winfrey has her way, at least.


Just when you thought the world of 'mobile gaming' have everything you could think of 'brand-wise' from RockStars, to Idols, to Actors, etc. we forgot the one important thing OPRAH was missing in the land of Casual Gaming, well no longer as her OWN network, figured out a very large percentage of their millions of TV viewers are infact sitting on their sofas playing games on their mobile devices even while watching a popuar Oprah TV show, so why not rope them in also, and OWN both their TV sets and MOBILE and MINDS! :)

Mobile is taking over the old-style of 'gaming', but the flood of millions of PlayStation 4 gamers is taking over the PC World!

About 78 percent of U.S. gamers play on their smartphones, according to a survey by PayPal and SuperData Research. And about 49 percent of U.S. males play on the PlayStation 4, compared to about 48 percent who play on PC.


Yet another study into the changing landscape of 'gaming', but this one is claiming that 'mobile gaming' is taking over older ways of playing on PC's and Consoles, but on the other hand it seems the surge of millions of gamers buying PS4's is knocking the PC world down in numbers, which is weird seeing how little the PS4 offers in in graphics compared to the PC, but maybe 4K PRO will help. :)

But their new Mobile Game will NOT be for FREE, there WILL be a FEE to unlock the GAME after a few levels!

In an interview with Bloomberg, Nintendo president Tatsumi Kimishima said the company hopes to achieve as much success with Super Mario Run as Niantic (and the Pokemon Company and Nintendo) have achieved with Pokemon Go.


Nintendo wants their next mobile adventure to be just as popular as their AR wonder 'Pokemon GO', but they are taking a different marketting approach for 'Super Mario GO', instead of being 'totally free', and then packing the game with 'micro-transactions', they are going to make it 'limited game', not as simple as DEMO, but good number of 'levels' to enjoy, but then afterwards there WILL be COST to UNLOCK the FULL game, a one-time FEE, so parents don't have to worry that their kids are raking up bills playing Mario.

The retro world was on fire earlier today when a picture appeared on the 'Net of ATGames playing the Arcade version of Millipede at their ARM TechCon, rumors were sparked of a new Atari Flashback console, but this one being 'Arcade' version, but sadly that is not the truth, infact they were demo'ing their new online streaming platform called 'Zuma' which runs on proprietary "PISMO" ARM Micro-Server.
