vr tunnel middle

I just saw a video that blew my mind. Its not JUST that its a great idea, nor just looking like lots of fun, nor REALLY great combination of xbox tracking and gearVR to allow room scale VR, but the APPROPRIATENESS of the marketing event!  Get ready for some serious gushing over the best VR marketing… Read More


So it finally happened.  We got to see a major game, live, in VR.  I wish I could say it was great, it wasn’t, but it was good enough to MORE then prove that live or even post broadcast games in VR have amazing potential, and I waiting with money in hand. First, what went wrong.… Read More

gear vr back

Gear VR, the only way to fly. I took two plane trips in the last 2 weeks and decided to see what level of utility the gear VR would be on a flight.  Not only was it great, it totally changed the flight experience. In this post I’m going to list my favorite VR apps for… Read More


Yeah, I know, who would schedule something on Memorial Day weekend? Hardcore VR hackers, that’s who! So if you have family plans, then you are not fully dedicated to the cause.  Ok, that was harsh, but still, you do not want to miss out on this year’s VR Hackathon.  Last year was pretty fun…I should know…I… Read More

VR theme park players

I just saw this and it already on my bucket list. THE VOID.  A VR Theme park where virtual reality technology is taking to it’s cutting edge.  And it looks great!  But after a bit of thinking, Utah?  Really?  Why is this not in California?  And this will take A LOT of capital, does this… Read More


First seen at the Lamborghini booth at the Geneva Motor Show 2015 in March, Samsung and Lamborghini created a well received 360 video of the Lamborghini driving around. Well I finally got to see it today and its more than just a camera in the car.  This video was very well planned out and shots… Read More

… I’ve been here for years.. Song?  Anybody?  That’s right!  LL Cool J, ah a trip in the way back machine.  However, we are not going to talk about ’91 rap, instead we are going to talk about what VR was in ’91 when ‘Mama said knock you out,’ was released, then again in ’98… Read More

Not too impressed, but I cannot wait to see an actual game like in the Gear VR.  The quality could be a bit better, but still pretty good.  The NBA All Star video should be out in a few weeks so we are on standby.  REALLY looking forward to it though. There are two videos,… Read More

Last week at Google I/O, they sprang a cardboard phone holder that basically turn your smartphone into a VR HMD display device.  Its extremely  cleaver, and was quite the hit.  So much so, there is a strong demand for these guys even a week later.  Now we are hearing rumors that a plastic version of… Read More

Did anyone watch the Google IO conference broadcast, or better yet, was there?  Hope you are enjoying your watches.  But more importantly, are you enjoying your cardboard HMD?  I have to admit, that caught me by surprise, but very cool!  But the point of the VR glasses is to demonstrate Google’s VR Build Kit. I… Read More

AEC Hackathon Logo

Have you seen the game trailers for Watch Dogs? In the game, the player is a cyber-vigilante that explores a connected ‘smart’ city and accesses its 2D and 3D information like a high tech Batman. As an example of this, the game even has a website called We Are Data that shows real geo-located information… Read More

oculus HMD

Back in Aug the Oculus made a splash on KickStarter as one of the most well funded VR headsets ever.  Now that they are in production, they have upped the specs a bit.  I think its going to make a huge difference.  Lets have a look at what they say from the Oculus website. The panel we… Read More

This is a kickstarter project.  That means its not available to the general consumer market yet, but if you are not afraid of a little DYI, its a pretty good deal with pretty good specs.  I used the VFX1 back in the day when I was building VR worlds using VRML and the Quake 1… Read More

Talk about taking forever; but Layar is finally out. If you do not know; Layar was one of the first Augmented Reality Apps out there but not for iphone.  And funny enough, never saw it on Cydia.  Well no matter; its in the App store.  Most likely for 4.0++ but I have not had a… Read More

Oh I.. cannot.. .wait.. As seen on Gizmodo, Google is about to release a 3D maps app, Maps 5.0,  for Android that is vector based!  How sweet is that?  For those of you who do not know, vector based graphics are images created by drawing shapes and lines based on instructions instead of raster graphics… Read More
