Apple is creating a mixed-reality headset

According to reports, Apple’s mixed-reality headset that offers both AR and VR might be launching in 2022.

For years there have been rumours that Apple is working on a VR or AR headset that can handle "high-quality" VR games with both fast chips and high-res displays. A report earlier this year mentioned the mixed-reality headset would have two ultra-high-resolution 8K displays for each eye and cost somewhere around $3,000.

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman talked about the headset in his most recent newsletter, Power On, writing, “Apple’s first headset will be of the mixed reality variety. That means it will have both AR and VR capabilities. While gaming can be done in both environments, virtual reality is what you want for seriously high-performance games with top-tier graphics.”

Last year, Apple acquired virtual reality company NextVR, making it clear that the company is dedicated to creating virtual reality and related augmented reality technology.

NASA delays SpaceX Crew-3 launch

SpaceX and NASA have delayed the launch of Crew-3 due to "unfavourable" weather.

A SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule and Falcon 9 rocket were originally scheduled to launch the Crew-3 mission on October 31st, from Pad 39A at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Earlier today, NASA announced the launch would be delayed by 72 hours due to poor weather conditions on the flight path. Instead, the launch will be on November 3rd at 1:10 AM EST (05:10 GMT).

Crew-3 will bring NASA astronauts Raja Chari, Tom Marshburn, Kayla Barron, and European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Mathias Maurer to the International Space Station. They’re scheduled to arrive at 11 PM EST (03:00 AM GMT) and stay there until next April.

Crypto Punk #9988 "sells" for $532

Last week, CryptoPunks #9998 sold for over half a billion worth of ETH, leaving many NFT enthusiasts confused about how it was valued so high.

Multiple bots on Twitter reported that the white-haired, green-eyed NFT got sold for 124,457 ETH, an amount worth $532,414,877.01 at the time of sale, making it the most expensive NFT ever sold. However, not long after the transaction, it was discovered that it was illegitimate.

Larva Labs, the creators behind CryptoPunks, explained the transaction, saying, “PSA: This transaction (and a number of others) are not a bug or an exploit, they are being done with “Flash Loans” In a nutshell, someone bought this punk from themselves with borrowed money and repaid the loan in the same transaction.” It’s likely the owner of CryptoPunks #9998 was trying to trick everyone for no reason.

The most expensive legitimate CryptoPunk sale, Covid Alien, was sold at a Sotheby’s auction in June for $11.8 million.

CryptoPunks is one of the most sought-after collections, starting in 2017, long before NFTs became as popular as they are now. There are 10,000 Cryptopunks in the collection, with the cheapest starting at 100 Ethereum, or about $400,000.
