Nokia gaze tracking in schools

 

There’s no denying that, by 2017, HTC Vive and Oculus Rift have made a dent in the VR revolution, made better by the constant introduction of new controllers and games to make your purchasing decision even tougher. However, buying one or the other is still a fantasy for most people, so that goes without saying that buying both is but a pipe dream for most.

As such, the question remains: which one is better, HTC Vive or Oculus Rift? As it turns out, that’s a loaded question. While HTC may have the advantage of not being burdened by a massive lawsuit , the answer ultimately depends on a range of different factors – from the types of immersive experiences you’re looking for to the amount of cash you’re willing to disperse.

Though it started as an ordinary Kickstarter project, Oculus Rift now has some huge contenders backing it, such as legendary video game programmer (and co-creator of the original Doom games) John Carmack. What’s more, Oculus VR was purchased by Facebook in 2014, meaning there's a truly authoritative presence overseeing the platform, for better or for worse.

Traditionally, I’ve recommended that PC gamers avoid 17-inch gaming laptops unless absolutely necessary for two key reasons. First, because their ridiculous size means they’re normally laptops in name only. Second, because they’re super-expensive and run lower powered, mobile GPUs that can't be upgraded and don’t come close to matching desktop performance.

This year, my opinion could change. Thanks to great work by Nvidia and OEMs, we’re set to see a fresh wave of top-notch 17-inch gaming notebooks that run full-fat desktop GPUs in the very near future.

The Alienware 17 is one of the first set to hit the market and, thanks to the addition of nifty eye-tracking tech, it could be one of 2016’s most exciting gaming laptops.

They say you should put your money where your mouth is, and that’s exactly what I did when I saw the Dell XPS 13 at CES 2015. Squeezing a 13.3in screen into what is, for the rest of the industry, a 12in chassis remains a magical achievement. That its major sleight of hand is to reduce the bezels to almost zero, and in doing so create a luxurious edge-to-edge screen, only adds to its desirability.

That’s why I chose it as my work laptop over 18 months ago. Despite a bruising existence of being thrust in a rucksack each day, and the occasional trip to Las Vegas, it’s holding up exceptionally well. Still, I was curious whether Dell’s latest update to its iconic laptop would make me keen to upgrade.

First let’s tackle the number of major changes Dell has made to the design. Which is, a big fat zero. There is now a 2-in-1 model with a lid that rotates through 360 degrees , much like Lenovo’s Yoga laptops, but the basic XPS 13 design remains nigh-on identical.
