CTRL-labs, a New York-based startup developing a wristband that translates musculoneural signals into machine-interpretable commands, today announced that it’s acquired patents associated with Myo, a similar wearable created by North that enables control of robotics and PCs via gestures and motion. CTRL-labs joined the Khronos Group in April of this year.

The Open Capture and Analytics Tool (OCAT) provides an FPS overlay and performance measurement for D3D11, D3D12, and Vulkan. Version 1.5 was recently released with several bug fixes, including this one for Vulkan: The Vulkan® layer for the overlay used to be incompatible with some other Vulkan layers, causing it lately to fail on many Vulkan games. This should be fixed now.

Codeplay Blog: Enabling Polymorphism in SYCL using the C++ idiom CRTP

Georgi Mirazchiyski, Codeplay Developer Relations Engineer has posted a tutorial introducing the Curiously Recurring Template Pattern. Dynamic polymorphism is a widely used C++ feature that allows code to be more flexible, and helps create easily extendable interfaces by overriding the base class specified interfaces inside our derived classes. However, in SYCL kernel code in order to emulate dynamic polymorphism we need to use some curious tricks and techniques.

Portable Computing Language (POCL) – Open Source Accelerator Framework for OpenCL

Hardware accelerators are power efficient implementations of challenging algorithms in heterogeneous computing platforms which are used to make key tasks in applications such as video codecs or machine vision pipelines faster, more power efficient, and less chip area consuming. Fixed function hardware accelerators are the latest class of devices Portable Computing Language (<a href=“http://portablecl.org”>POCL</a>) adds to its diverse palette of supported device types in the same OpenCL context.
