The best way to show VR to anyone

The best way to show VR to anyone

A developer by the name Dylan Fitterer has released a demo video for his upcoming Virtual Reality game "Audioshield", and with it, the best way to watch. While we've wrestled with how to depict VR to the masses - mostly from an app developer's point of view - Fitterer seems to have figured it out. No more making the VR gamer look like a goon.

DIY Centriphone whips iPhone around your head on a string

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.
