The video game publisher that won a case against Facebook-owned Oculus has asked a judge to block the firm from using its code in virtual reality products.Earlier this month a US court ruled that Oculus had used ZeniMax's code without permission.If the ban is granted, it could limit the number of games available for sale with the Oculus Rift VR headset.A spokeswoman for Oculus said that the company was continuing with its appeal.Tera Randall told Reuters that the original verdict was "legally flawed and factually unwarranted".ZeniMax was awarded $500m (£398m) earlier in February when a jury found that Oculus, which Facebook bought in 2014, had violated a non-disclosure agreement.
(Reuters) – Facebook’s big ambitions in the nascent virtual reality industry could be threatened by a court order that would prevent it from using critical software code another company claims to own, according to legal and industry experts.Last Thursday, video game publisher ZeniMax Media asked a Dallas federal judge to issue an order barring Facebook unit Oculus from using or distributing the disputed code, part of the software development kit that Oculus provides to outside companies creating games for its Rift VR headset.A decision is likely a few months away, but intellectual property lawyers said ZeniMax has a decent chance of getting the order, which would mean Facebook faces a tough choice between paying a possibly hefty settlement or fighting on at risk of jeopardizing its position in the sector.For now, Facebook is fighting on.Oculus spokeswoman Tera Randall said last Thursday the company would challenge a $500 million jury verdict on Feb. 1 against Oculus and its co-founders Palmer Luckey and Brendan Iribe for infringing ZeniMax’s copyrighted code and violating a non-disclosure agreement.Randall said Oculus would possibly file an appeal that would “allow us to put this litigation behind us.”She did not respond to a request for comment for this article.An injunction would require Oculus, which Facebook acquired for $3 billion in 2014, to stop distributing the code to developers or selling those games that use it.Such a court order “would put a huge stumbling block in front” of Oculus, said Stephanie Llamas, an analyst with gaming market research firm SuperData.It would offer the company’s rivals in the new market, which include HTC, Sony Corp, Alphabet Inc and others an “important opportunity for them to become first movers.”Sales of the Rift itself would not be barred, but Llamas, said a lack of available titles could hinder Facebook’s offering relative to HTC’s Vive headset and Sony’s Playstation VR.That market is relatively small at the moment – sales of VR hardware and software totaled $2.7 billion in 2016 – and mainly limited to gaming.But Facebook chief executive Mark Zuckerberg has predicted the technology “will become a part of daily life for billions of people,” revolutionizing social media, entertainment and medicine.SuperData says the VR market will be worth $37 billion by 2020.Likewise, investment firm Cantor Fitzgerald last year issued a report predicting VR would account for 10 percent of Facebook revenue in four years’ time.ZeniMax’s lawsuit arose from 2012 correspondence between Luckey and famed video game developer John Carmack, creator of the Doom and Quake series and then a ZeniMax employee.Luckey signed a non-disclosure agreement with ZeniMax covering his communications with Carmack.Carmack joined Oculus in 2013 as chief technology officer.
CERN’s Large Hadron Collider beneath Geneva, Switzerland isn’t just one, but a handful of experiments sprinkled along the length of the 17-mile-round ring.One of the biggest, the Compact Muon Solenoid or CMS, is getting a major upgrade today, which CERN is comparing to an open-heart surgery.The upgrade will swap out CMS’ innermost of several different particle detectors.The new so-called pixel detector will help physicists gather important information on potentially novel particles, like those predicted by supersymmetry, from the hundreds of millions of particle collisions happening every second in the LHC.The LHC itself recently received a major upgrade, boosting its operating energy from 8 to 13 tera-electron volts, which will allow physicists to gather even more data.“You say bye to something you’ve had your hands on for a long period of time and keep your fingers crossed it will work in the operating conditions.”

Phone maker HTC has already revealed that they’re going to announce a new “U” branded device in just under a month, and we also know the company is terrible at keeping secrets.Combine these two facts and we have what appears to be an upcoming promotional video for the new smartphone turning up early online.Under the title of “HTC U11,” the clip goes to great lengths to highlight the feature that’s already revealed in HTC’s recent “Squeeze for the brilliant” teaser.That feature, of course, is the phone’s squeezable side edges.The video, posted to YouTube by user “Tech Tera,” shows a couple walking along, holding hands as they window shop.The man takes the phone out of his pocket and, while holding it with only one hand, gives the sides a squeeze to activate a vertical menu along the left side of the display.

Technical and creative workers often move to places such as New York, London, and Silicon Valley for jobs, often leading to significant competition for positions while another city may go begging in the exact same areas of expertise.And this is why one company, Jobbatical, is setting out to help redistribute talent surplus to areas where there is talent shortage.Founded out of Tallinn, Estonia, in 2014, Jobbatical is a recruitment platform that wants to help software engineers, creatives, and marketeers find jobs around the world.And in its mission to achieve this, it has just closed a $4 million series A round of funding led by Japan-based Mistletoe, with participation from Union Square Ventures (U.S.), AirTree Ventures (Australia), and Tera Ventures (Estonia).“There is a noticeable gap in the disbursement of talent, leading to talent surplus in these areas and talent shortage in many other cities around the world,” the company said in a statement issued to VentureBeat.“Jobbatical is helping cities like Lisbon, Tokyo, and Tallinn build their own innovation hubs by removing geographical bias from hiring decisions and giving talent access to positions in these areas.”
While you might hear plenty of ‘hear, hear’ responses agreeing with that sentiment from across the game development fraternity, it belies a formula on which En Masse Entertainment has built a powerful and effective string of technologies and strategies.After a founding in South Korea, and opening West in 2009, En Masse has introduced and expanded the online action-RPG Tera with impressive fortitude and longevity.Emerging at a time when games from South Korea and elsewhere were still trying to find a foothold in the western market, En Masse formed as the North American publishing wing for a global launch.Positioned as a premium AAA title alongside powerhouse franchises and recent releases like Diablo III and Star Wars: The Old Republic, the challenge was clear and present.But after the 2012 launch, a shift in 2013 to a free-to-play model helped propel Tera’s user-base, and as a result, lay the foundation for a game that continues to thrive in today’s testing marketplace.“User acquisition, retention, and even monetization—all those really big metrics—shot through the roof,” says Kim of the business adjustment to the free-to-play initiative.
Much has been said about the impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on the global workforce, with some arguing that we should all be far more concerned about “job displacement” than killer robots.Andrew Ng, Coursera cofounder and former chief scientist at Chinese technology juggernaut Baidu, told an audience at a Harvard Business Review event earlier this year:As an AI insider, having built and shipped a lot of AI products, I don’t see a clear path for AI to surpass human-level intelligence.I think that job displacement is a huge problem, and the one that I wish we could focus on, rather than be distracted by these science fiction-ish, dystopian elements.That’s not to say that the rise of AI will have a similar knock-on effect in the future, of course, but it is one hypothesis.“An equilibrium in supply and demand is rapidly becoming the exception, not the norm,” BCG has said.
Kakao Games, which publishes the massively multiplayer online role-playing game Black Desert Online in North America and Europe, announced today that it will bring Bluehole‘s new PC MMO, Ascent: Infinite Realm, to Western markets.Bluehole is the studio behind the Battle Royale hit PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, but the developer also created the MMO Tera, which has over 26 million registered players.So the company has experience creating multiplayer hits and online worlds.Ascent: Infinite Realm features a steampunk fantasy aesthetic.Ships and flying mounts are an important part of the MMO, and it will feature aerial combat.A beta for Ascent: Infinite Realm will start at some point during the first half of 2018.
Here’s something new (and very worrying) in the world of online gaming: Tera, an MMORPG (massively multiplayer online RPG) produced by the same developer responsible for PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, had its in-game chat shut down over the weekend following revelations that it could be used as a medium to spread all sorts of malicious nastiness including viruses.Developer Bluehole launched Tera back in 2011 in South Korea, and it followed to North America and Europe in 2012.It’s an online RPG with combat that plays out like an FPS, but panic struck over the weekend when the game servers were brought down for emergency maintenance to fix a gaping chat-related vulnerability.Players themselves actually highlighted the flaw in Tera’s chat system, which apparently utilizes HTML, and could reportedly be exploited to bombard other players with dodgy images or links, collect user IP addresses, or even remotely execute malware.As if MMORPG public chat channels weren’t toxic enough already.The game’s North American publisher, En Masse, noted at the time: “There are very serious claims floating around of what this vulnerability potentially allows malicious users to do.
