The US Copyright Office has ruled Theater d’Opera Local, The text to image GenAI app created with Midjourney is not eligible for copyright protection. This piece, created by Matthew Allen, won an award at the Colorado State Fair last year. I wonder if this applies to a movie created using AI generated images and animations. It is not clear when and in what context AI generated content can be copyrighted. If a human is writing the script, creating the prompts, recording the voice or prompting, and editing the AI-generated shots, should the human be the content at the center of the process? If a band trains its own model with its own recorded music, and the model creates new songs at the band’s suggestion, isn’t that work eligible for copyright? Experts are of the opinion that this issue will be decided by the US Supreme Court.

Venice Film Festival 2023 is the coming out party of Cinematic AI. Hollywood, to say the least, has been hesitant about AI over the past year. Indeed, fear and loathing of artificial intelligence is at the root of the biggest strike in sixty years. Yet worlds away, at the 80th Venice Film Festival, a more hopeful, optimistic view of AI’s cinematic potential is being supported by some of Hollywood’s biggest stars, including Tom Hanks, Robert Zemeckis, Joe Russo and Darren Aronofsky.

Google’s generative AI tools now transform text into the online world. Hiber3D integrates Google’s AI tools to give creators the ability to type in what they want to see—and create an immersive world. At Google Cloud Next in San Francisco last week, startup Hiber announced the integration of Google’s generative AI technology into its Hiber3D development platform, which aims to simplify the process of creating content in games.

Nintendo is rumored to be working with Google on a VR headset. File this under “I’ll believe it when I see it.” According to Nash Weedle, who previously provided accurate leaks about Nintendo, a prototype VR headset already exists. Nintendo is said to be testing micro-LED displays from Raxium, a company acquired by Google last year. The rumored prototype features mixed reality capabilities and cost-effective, energy-efficient micro-LED displays. It will be a standalone device that does not require a console connection.

Meta is working with LG on the new Quest Pro. A slightly more credible rumor is about a new headset LG and Meta are developing together to compete with the Apple Vision Pro. A Korean news report suggests Meta is partnering with LG to release a successor to its high-end Quest Pro virtual reality headset in 2025. The resulting headset is rumored to cost around $2,000 and will use LG’s own 2 displays.

Is famous VR blogger and evangelist Tony “Scarred Ghost” Vitillo losing his religion? Tony says it could be the autumn of VR. As early as this time last year it was clear that Meta had pushed the Quest ecosystem in the wrong direction, causing usage to drop dramatically. Most inventions are now in the drawer. According to the devs, sales in the Quest store are down 65%. As it turns out, VR isn’t so good for games. Meta bet it would be the farm, now they’re figuring out what people want beyond beat saber and walkabout mini-golf (both of which should be solid in mixed reality, too). Bottom line: Since the majority of early adopters are gamers, the meta focuses on games first. The strategy was a historic whiff, although almost anyone would have made the same mistake. Gamers prefer game consoles. Innovations like MR are unlikely to bring them back. The only thing is that it is like a massive hit Game of Thrones. The next wave of devices expected from Samsung, Apple, Meta/LG, Google/Nintendo won’t hit the mass market until 2025. Autumn is a great way to see the moment in XR, but we know what happens next. Autumn.
