The essential VR accessory for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift buyers

If you want to escape the real world, it's soon going to be easier than ever with virtual reality. Sure, you can use books, TV, and even non-VR video games to escape, but it's not quite the same.

DxO, the people behind the popular DxOMark benchmarking site, announced a major software update to their almost odd DxO ONE camera.

Sony e-paper HUIS remote control goes on sale after all

Who says dreams can't come true? That idea was partly behind crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo, helping dreamers and makers turn ideas into products. July last year, Sony took that rather popular idea and turned it into a sort of internal incubation platform, allowing employees to test their ideas with the potential of turning them into actual Sony products.
