How is this novel?
Isn’t this literally the oldest technology in the world? Just a mainframe with dumb terminal. Only teletype swapped to streaming video?
Nvidia's CEO Jensen Huang continues inventing, as if his role in the rise of GPUs wasn't enough. A patent application published on December 2 credits Huang as one of the inventors of a system to open and share a file in the cloud without the need for a corresponding application on local devices. Instead, the opened file is …
Agree . Exactly
But 2 reasons it’s compelling for them
Security . No sand boxing needed on the client needed because the app is runnng on the server and just sending pixels .
VR gear cost and interoperability. Any VR gear can stream done pixels .
Its hilarious how we have 360ed back around - from mainframe with telnet stream to mainframe but with video stream.
Isn't VR exceedingly sensitive to latency? Because it's responding to head movements, delays cause a mental disconnect that causes problems.
Cloud based processing for engineering models? Sure, no issue at all. For VR? Not seen that done, not even seen it recommended as a future option.
Indeed. In the case of an internet URL, which, may resolve to a static "file" or a dynamic entity that is opened by a browser...
This is just one incarnation on the secure browsing front
What's the real difference here? The real browser (application) is running remotely, just pixels being presented on the user's device.

Tell us that is not a Great Game Changer and be proven beautifully wrong and wronged.

Is that possibility likely, and therefore readily enough available too, as a Credible Incredibly ACTive Sino-Soviet Threat if not a Wonderfully Engaging Wild West Treat?
Here such is long ago an earlier previously unknowable fact for constant pondering and excited pampering/challenging in return for great expectations of excessively satisfying insatiable rewards.
If the patent comes anywhere near close to providing any of that it's a Real Gem of a Doozy. Bravo, the Nvidia's CEO Jensen Huang Team Players for such a Great Quantum AI Leap. :-)>
"The patent document takes a hack at the disadvantages of desktop engineering software, which typically require powerful computers."
The powerful computers are still needed but they're just moved off the desktop. I suppose it enables Nvidia to sell components for two computers, one on the desktop and one in the cloud. Next time round they can advocate doing it with desktop computers and sell more components for that. And then back to reinventing the mainframe in yet another form.
It’s alarmingly simple and just google stadia but for documents and 3d cad
The app ( likely server less ) is running on the server and hits a headless gpu and the stream sent to the vr gear.
VNC basically running using http 3 web transport . The video stream pushing up from the server and mutation events pushing down from the vr Client.
Br gear sucks in terms of compute but is able to stream videos. Just like a chrome cast and be screens mashed together. Makes the cost of VR gear much lower
Security . No client side app sandboxing needed.
