Nerd alert: Host PJ Jacobowitz gets the background on the tech and terms behind augmented reality, virtual reality, and extended reality from guests Hiren Bhinde and Thao Le, from the XR product management and marketing teams at Qualcomm Technologies. They cover 3DOF, 6DOF, sensors, gyroscopes, room scale, and computer vision — and PJ reveals an obsession with depth sensing.

This episode is also for you if:

  • You think XR is just for gaming.
  • You don’t know what a SLAM algorithm is, or what that has to do with the Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler movie 50 First Dates.
  • You wonder how XR could change the world.
