Why VR is the future of gaming, Part 2: Toybox and human interaction

Last week I wrote about my experiences with VR at CES in Part 1 of "Why VR is the future of gaming." I talked a lot about my experience with the Oculus Rift, and the Bullet Train demo.

Well, today it's time for me to talk about the experience I had directly following my time with the Bullet Train demo.

Why VR is the future of gaming, Part 1: Oculus Rift and Bullet Train

Earlier this month I was with the rest of the SlashGear team at CES, and as you no doubt saw, VR had a big presence at the show. I was able to test out various VR offerings from different companies. Everything from Google Cardboard up to the Oculus Rift. While I enjoyed trying different things out, it wasn't until the last hour I was at the show that I began to truly understand just how much VR will change the way we play games.

Vimble gimbal makes your iPhone steady even when you’re not

Smartphone cameras have ome a long way since the paltry yet faithful 2MP shooters of old. But try as they might, there are still some things that these mobile devices can't do perfectly, like stabilization. For that, you'll need an honest to goodness three-axis stabilizer. That or you'll need a gimbal like DelTron's Vimble for the iPhone, which, together with the ViCam app, not only promises superb stabilization, but also great control over your iPhone camera's functionality. Say goodbye to shaky footage, tilted panoramas, or even low resolution selfies.

Prizm may be the sleeper hit of CES 2016

There's a device out there called Prizm, one made to turn your music playing experience into something wholly unique.

LG G6 revealed with 4K OLED display

This week LG revealed the first look at their ultra-premium series of products by the name of LG Signature, and within this collection, the LG G6. The LG G6 is one of two 2016 4K OLED TVs the company is showing off with Dolby Vision inside and a picture-on-glass design.

This robot is furious and we don’t know why

This robot is furious and we don’t know why

This BUDDY robot we're about to tell you about was found at CES 2016 appearing to scurry around with a terrifying, sobbing face. That was when we first saw it. We later realized it was probably mad, maybe a little bit annoyed. He, if we're going to be so presumptuous as to give it a gender, seemed to be angered by the fact that he had to roll around the floor while his cohort, another robot, was allowed to sit on the table.

The one on the table was happy.
