Reality check for virtual reality – the dangers of subpar VR experiences

Reality check for virtual reality – the dangers of subpar VR experiences

In the next few months, even this week alone, expect to hear a lot about virtual and augmented reality products. Oculus and HTC/Valve are set to launch their respective headsets in a month or two. Google has just stepped up its Cardboard marketing and retailing. Coca-Cola is mulling over recycling its packaging into VR headsets, but Sweden's McDonald's may have already beaten them to the punch. But more than any other consumer technology in the past decade, from smartphones to wearables, VR perhaps presents the most health questions. While the answer are still murky at this point, they all revolve on how the quality of a VR product, both hardware and software, largely determines the effects it will have on your body.

Raspberry Pi 3: why this one is special

Raspberry Pi 3: why this one is special

Four years after the launch of the original Raspberry Pi, the new Raspberry Pi 3 has appeared with several very important new features. This version of the device - the $35 computer, that is to say - comes with two essential features that've been relegated to accessories until now. Both Bluetooth 4.1 and Wi-Fi are now built-in with this Raspberry Pi 3, freeing up room for more ports for more projects and more freedom for the device on its own!

Netflix fights back against VPN users, but at what cost?

Netflix fights back against VPN users, but at what cost?

It's been a while since Netflix declared war on customers who use VPNs and other means to access content outside of their country. So far, their efforts have lead to a few VPN providers having their IPs blocked, but that only lasted for a few days at most. Even with a little help from Paypal, their efforts appeared to be in vain. However, over the weekend, the tides appear to have shifted.

Here’s your Fallout 4 Survival Mode guide

Here’s your Fallout 4 Survival Mode guide

Now they've got quick saves, difficulty levels, and the internet to help guide you through any game you'd like. But Bethesda wants to make Fallout 4 hard enough to satisfy even the most masochistic of gamers.

NYPD wants access to ALL iPhones (with a warrant)

NYPD wants access to ALL iPhones (with a warrant)

The New York City Police Department says they'd like Apple to unlock every iPhone currently subject to a court-ordered search. Once the San Bernardino doors are broken down by the FBI, the NYPD has made clear: they want in, too. That'd mean every iPhone entered into evidence in a court case and subjected to a search ordered by a judge could be forced open by law enforcement, courtesy of a piece of software they've forced Apple to create. That software would be an entirely new version of iOS which the FBI (then the NYPD, and every other law enforcement agency in the USA) would then install on each iPhone, bypassing Apple's security measures, opening the locks to access data. You might be asking yourself, "why is that so bad?"

FBI’s backdoor iPhone access is just the beginning: Apple asked to open 9 new phones

Apple's battle with the US government has been going on for around a week now, and it doesn't look as though there's any end in sight. There is a lot of debate as to whether Apple is in the right or wrong, with their stance on not unlocking the San Bernardino shooter's phone. However, it seems as though Apple has been right about at least one thing.

How Samsung plans to take over your car (and maybe save you money)

How Samsung plans to take over your car (and maybe save you money)

Samsung isn't the first company to embrace the smart car concept, but it's certainly among those with the deepest pockets. The new Samsung Connect Auto platform starts out with a nondescript dongle that plugs in underneath your dashboard, but the implications - both for your everyday use of the car, and potentially for how much you're paying in insurance - are much further reaching.

Mark Zuckerberg embodies VR’s single biggest issue

Mark Zuckerberg embodies VR’s single biggest issue

It wasn't what Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said this week at the Samsung Galaxy S7 press conference. It was what he didn't say. It was the photo you're about to see. It was the future he intends to build with Samsung, with Oculus, and with the eyes and ears of millions of users. Once the following image was released, it was clear: we were part of a new age. Social interaction with a headset on. Maybe not an age you're going to want to be a part of.
