This story is part Apple Event, our full coverage of the latest news from Apple headquarters.

Ever since Apple launched its first smartwatch back in 2015, the Apple Watch has been highly regarded among a wide variety of demographic groups, although its price has made it unaffordable for some. That changed on Tuesday when the company announced the Watch SE, a more affordable watch for those whose budgets were not previously limited to owning an Apple smartwatch.

With the Watch SE starting at $ 279 (£ 269, AU $ 429), Apple aims to reach a new audience of smartwatch owners, including kids. New Apple Watch family customization feature allows people to connect multiple watches to one iPhone, and Apple clearly hopes that parents can be persuaded to invest in smartwatches for their beloved siblings.

While it looks a lot like the current Series 3 watch, the Watch SE contains a more powerful processor than Apple’s older watches. Series 3 dates from 2017, so customers can be confident that Apple is doing more than just reselling an old product; the company has made a much-needed internal update to the gadget to keep it relevant in 2020 and beyond.

As you’d expect from a less expensive model, the SE doesn’t have all of the advanced features of more expensive Apple watches, such as the FDA-approved ECG app, but it still has a range of fitness and fall tracking capabilities – a detection feature introduced in Series 4. They include the same accelerometer, gyroscope, and always-on altimeter as the new Apple Watch Series 6. The company also promises larger, easier-to-read numbers on its “most advanced” watch display, which is actually 30% larger. than the screen in Series 3.

Apple’s September event is usually an opportunity for the company to showcase its latest iPhones, but with no phones arriving on Tuesday, the watch has been able to take center stage. we expect Apple to unveil iPhone 12 in just a few weeks, but until then the company has come up with a few things to please.

Among Apple’s announcements at Tuesday’s event, the Apple Watch SE showcases the potential to bring a much loved (and hungry) product to a new audience. While seasoned smartwatch owners or those looking for a deeper understanding of their health indicators may still be attracted to the more expensive and premium Apple Watch, the SE can do a great job of serving most people looking for an attractive and smartwatch.

The Watch SE could also benefit Apple by allowing it to maintain its position as market leader in global wearable devices… Less expensive smartwatches could allow the company to attract buyers who would otherwise prefer a budget fitness tracker from competitors like Fitbit.

Artists unite and show the power of Unreal Engine 5 in a fantastic video

The new graphics engine from the creator of Epic Games is called Unreal Engine 5 and is currently the most popular in this segment. The latest information indicates that over 100 studios develop their games on this graphics platform, but we still have a lot to learn about its potential.

So now a group of artists have come together and created an amazing video demonstrating the full power of Unreal Engine 5. So come take a look and draw your own conclusions.


Powerful graphics engine Unreal Engine 5 from Epic Games

If you have heard about the new Unreal Engine 5 graphics engine, but have not yet fully understood what this tool is capable of, then you are reading the right article.

Quixel, a creative and 3D art product company, recently completed a project called "Ninety days in Unreal Engine 5". Basically, the idea was to invite some artists to create real-time environments over the course of a few days. The project has evolved, and last week the company presented the result of over 40 environments created in Unreal Engine 5 with powerful and incredible video.

Watch the video promoted by Quixel:

According to the company, "The Ninety Days project started with just three main artists and a simple concept: make something beautiful and inspiring, keep it in real time, and if possible create every environment in just three days."A few days later, other artists were invited to the project, even from Epic Games.

To accomplish this work, the artists took advantage of some of Quixel's tools, such as the Megascans library, to create high-quality content in a more efficient and easier way.

Quixel and Epic Games product strategist and lead artist Victor Oman noted that the project is very important in terms of learning, and even said that "I feel like I added more skills and tools to my resume during the Ninenta Diaz project than in the last five years of my career.".

For his part, Alec Tucker, Cinematic Environments Artist also at Quixel and Epic Games, said environment creation was fast and interactive thanks to Unreal Engine 5 and Quixel Megascans assets.

Kerbal Space Program 2 now kicks off in early 2023

The Kerbal 2 space program will remain on earth for some time to come. Developer Star Theory has delayed the release of the game until early 2023.

Creative director Nate Simpson explained on the project’s forums and in a video message that development of the space flight simulator has “enormous technological complexity” and the team needs more time to bring it to perfection. In the video posted below, Simpson clarifies by saying:

“We have also set very high quality standards. the game should [perform] for a wide range of vehicles. Graphics must be second to none. The universe should be rich and interesting to explore. We set ourselves an internal goal – to create an original and breathtaking experience.

Like its well-received predecessor, Kerbal Space Program 2 challenges players to manage a space program run by cute green astronauts to build rockets and other spacecraft for space exploration. The game uses realistic physics to allow players to perform realistic orbital maneuvers used to locate and land on celestial bodies. The sequel was first announced at Gamescom 2019 with a release window in 2020. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic delayed development and forced the team to aim for Fall 2021 to arrive later this year.

Kerbal Space Program 2 is aimed at PC at launch, with console versions coming later in the year.

Unfortunately, Kerbal isn’t the only major game that has been pushed back to 2023. We recently compiled a list of all the best games of 2022 to avoid this year, which you can read here.
