More news in Cupertino related to its staff. Shall we take a look at them?
THE Variety reported that Apple recently hired the developer Sterling Crispin, which was one of the main names in the creation of the application Cyber ??Paint while at DAQRI developer.
For those unfamiliar with the app, Cyber ??Paint brings a special interface for virtual reality devices for users to create artistic creations in 360. The app is available on a number of VR devices, such as Oculus Go, HTC Vive, Samsung GearVR and Google Daydream, and received high praise from the specialized press as a truly innovative use of the virtual environment.
Not much is known about Apple's hiring of Crispin other than the fact that he arrived in Cupertino in May, as his personal LinkedIn page indicates. It is presumed, however, that the developer was taken to Apple Park precisely to continue his work in the area of ??virtual reality, perhaps in the mystical VR glasses that would be being developed by the company with the operating system "rOS".
The hard facts about this hiring (and Apple's ambitions in the segment as a whole), of course, we will only know in the medium or long term. But the team is forming.
We spoke here, a few weeks ago, of the thorny case of an employee of Ma who was arrested trying to sell secrets of the Titan Project (the supposed system for autonomous cars of the company) to a competitor. Now, the suspect pleaded not guilty throughout history.
Xiaolang Zhang, who is on probation awaiting judgment of the case, had appointed a public defender to represent him at the hearing, but also brought in a lawyer to defend him.
As we have already informed, the XMotors (Chinese autonomous vehicle company to which Zhang was supposed to be taking the secret information) said he had not received any data from Apple through the former employee. It is not known, however, whether this information influences the ruin judgment in any way.
We will have to wait to see how it all unfolds.
