” For many, the metaverse is a place to escape the real world. But for Siemens and our customers, the industrial metaverse is where you create the real world! It’s where we study climate change, globalization, digitization. It’s where we go to transform the industries that form the backbone of our economies,” explains Cedrik Neike, Member of the Management Board of Siemens AG and CEO of Siemens Digital Industries. ” In association with Sony, we are presenting the latest brick in our industrial metaverse: immersive engineering. It provides an environment for experiencing the realities of physics, without the limitations of time. The industrial metaverse, enhanced by immersive engineering, brings real and digital worlds together as never before: it will affect the way our customers work, in depth and on a daily basis.”
” We designed our Snapdragon XR2 Gen 2 to handle 4K definition display, state-of-the-art graphics and unmatched performance to enable creators to build innovative spatialized content that will transform the industry for the better ,” says Said Bakadir, Senior Director of Product Management at Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “It’s exciting to see Sony enter the enterprise world with its XR hardware and use Snapdragon XR technologies to unleash more realistic, detailed and accurate virtual or mixed reality (MR/VR) experiences. This will help developers and creators showcase an even more immersive future. ”
High-quality XR experience for creative uses
The display headset features large (1.3″ type), high-definition 4K OLED microdisplays, with an extended gamut covering up to 96% of the DCI-P3 color space. Realistic, detailed rendering of the textures of 3D objects and the facial expressions of human characters means creators can follow the entire process, from modeling to final checks, without ever taking off the headset.
By supportingsplit rendering, which divides the workload between the computers and the headset, the system is able to deliver stable, high-definition rendering of large 3D models.
With this collaboration with Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. Sony is among the first users of their latest Snapdragon XR2 Gen 2 platform. The processor unleashes the power of 4K OLED microdisplays to deliver stunning image quality, while the AI built into the processor enhances user and volume tracking for smoother XR experiences: the physical and digital worlds merge seamlessly, making it easy and intuitive to navigate creative spaces in extended reality.
Controllers that deliver an intuitive experience of spatialized content creation
The system incorporates a ring controller, enabling users to intuitively manipulate objects in virtual space. It also features a pointing controller for stable, precise designation in virtual spaces, whose shape and button layout are optimized for efficient, precise use. By holding the pointing controller in the dominant hand and attaching the ring controller to the fingers of the secondary hand, designers can model 3D objects using both controllers and a keyboard, while wearing the display headset.
