Google AR Products & Clippable Coupons Live – Search Engine Roundtable

It looks like the Google AR products, at least for shoes, and the clippable coupons feature is now live. If you search for various shoes or sneakers, you will see some of the product images have 3D icon that takes you into the AR feature in Google Search and some also have clippable coupons.

Glenn Gabe spotted this and posted about it on Twitter but I can see it as well.

Here is his screenshot of the AR shoes:

Yes, we had other AR features in Google Search but not for shoes or more widely than some limited products. Also the clippable coupons was announced a couple weeks ago but now seems to be rolling out.

Here are his tweets with more screenshots:

Do you all see it?

Wetherspoons will be making a major change to prices in pubs from tomorrow (January 3). Thousands of punters flood to Wetherspoons pubs across the UK every day.

But the good news is that Wetherspoons will be slashing the price of menu items. Pubs in Scotland will see the price drops between January 4 and January 17.

Prices for drinks will start from just 99p. Customers will be able to get Carlsberg, Bud Light, Guinness and Stowford Press Dark Berry Cider at slashed prices , reports the Sun.

Pints of Ruddles beer will be on sale for 99p too across 560 pubs too. But the average price of a pint of Ruddles is £1.79 so customers buying the bev will be getting a roughly 45% discount.

Customers will be able to get reduced prices on a range of spirits too, including whisky, gin, rum and vodka. Coffee and soft drinks across 810 pubs will be reduced to 99p.

Tim Martin, Wetherspoon founder and chairman, said: “Department stores and shops hold their sales in January, so it is the perfect time to have a sale in the pub too.

“The range of drinks and food on sale in the pub is aimed at suiting a wide variety of tastes.This year we have included our biggest selection of low and non-alcoholic drinks.”

IQE partners with MICLEDI to develop micro-LEDs for AR products – Semiconductor Today

6 October 2022

Epiwafer and substrate maker IQE plc of Cardiff, Wales, UK has entered into a partnership with MICLEDI Microdisplays B.V. of Leuven, Belgium, focused on the large-scale commercialization of micro-LED technology.

Spun off from nanoelectronics research center IMEC in 2019, MICLEDI is a fabless semiconductor design and technology company developing unique, high-performance micro-LED displays with a primary focus on augmented reality (AR) products.

Under the agreement, IQE will provide MICLEDI with a 200mm (8-inch) platform to scale and commercialize the technology to achieve high-volume production for red micro-LEDs. This geometry allows for compatibility with both standard 200mm and 300mm silicon foundries, enabling the partnership to deliver economies of scale.

“Micro-LEDs are the future of immersive display technologies and this agreement expands IQE’s position in a market which is poised for multi-billion dollar growth across a range of end-market applications, including everyday consumer electronics,” says IQE’s CEO Americo Lemos. “Compound semiconductors are a critical enabler of scale in this market and we are pleased to be partnering with MICLEDI to offer a differentiated solution,” he adds.

“By combining MICLEDI’s unique micro-LED arrays with IQE’s innovative 8-inch platform, we have formed a natural partnership to commercialize and scale our solution to address the high-growth micro-LED market,” says MICLEDI’s CEO Sean Lord. “Our augmented reality products will enable new user experiences, and we look forward to delivering this innovative technology under our new partnership.”

Meta updates bug bounty program to better cover VR and AR products – CNET

Meta said Friday that it’s updating its bug bounty program to better cover its new virtual reality and augmented reality products.

The devices are made by the company’s Reality Labs division and include products like the Meta Quest 2 VR headset, Meta Portal smart speaker and Ray-Ban Stories smart sunglasses.

Meta, formerly known as Facebook, said in its Friday blog post that the idea is to give security researchers a better idea of what kinds of bugs will reap them the biggest rewards and to get more of them to focus on its products.

Meta said the amount paid will hinge on the potential security impact of the bug in question. For example, finding a bug that could allow someone to fully and consistently bypass a device’s security could be worth as much as $30,000.

But the discovery of a less dangerous bug, like one that could give unauthorized access to a Portal’s camera or microphone, might be worth $5,000. 

Bug bounty programs are a growing trend in cybersecurity, with some companies offering millions in rewards. Independent security researchers search for bugs and flaws that attackers could use, and get paid to inform the company rather than use the flaws for malicious purposes.

Meta boasts one of the longest-running bug bounty programs in the tech industry. Started in 2011, the program has paid out bounties to more than 1,500 researchers from 107 countries. Last year, the company paid bounties totaling $2 million.
