Bringing WebVR to Microsoft Edge Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve begun development on experimental WebVR support in Microsoft Edge! WebVR is the next frontier in web graphics, enabling developers to create a wide range of truly immersive experiences for a variety of devices. Innovative and immersive WebVR content is already showing up on the web, and we expect to see even more coming as developers turn WebGL experiences into WebVR experiences. A stereoscopic screen capture from “Mars One” Mission, an example WebVR scene on SketchFab We’ve been working on advancing the W3C WebVR specification — along with Mozilla, Google, Oculus and others — to ensure that web developers have a faster, more powerful, and interoperable tool. We look forward to sharing more software and hardware details soon as our implementation progresses. As always, we welcome your feedback as [ more… ]

Device to Device Communication with Azure IoT Hub

2016-09-09 KENNETH 0

Device to Device Communication with Azure IoT Hub We’ve already seen how to get your devices to send data to the cloud. In most cases, the data is then processed by various Azure services. However, in some cases the cloud is nothing more than a means of communication between two devices. Imagine a Raspberry Pi connected to a garage door. Telling the Raspberry Pi to open or close the door from a phone should only require a minimal amount of cloud programming. There is no data processing; the cloud simply relays a message from the phone to the Pi. Or perhaps the Raspberry Pi is connected to a motion sensor and you’d like an alert on your phone when it detects movement. In this blog post, we will experiment with implementing device-to-device communication with as little cloud-side programming as possible. [ more… ]
