If you're paying a high price to watch just a few TV channels, cutting the cord and going internet only is getting easier. Many TV channels now give you same day or next day access to the best clips from their shows.

Find out what VR technology is all about. 

Right now this technology is just emerging. Google has stimulated the industry with a simple cardboard viewer that uses your cell phone. The next step up is a manufactured viewer with cell phone mounting features and head straps. The final implementation is a standalone viewer that doesn't require a cell phone. Remember the old stereoscopes that allowed you to see images in 3D by using duplicate photos taken from the vantage point of our two eyes? VR uses this principle but greatly expands on it. 

When you strap on a VR viewer and load some software, imagine that you can find yourself in a 3D version of YouTube Street View. Instead of using a cursor to move the image around as in YouTube, you just move your head up, down, or sideways to look around.  To move up the street, you just look where you want to go and press a button on the side of the viewer to move ahead to that location.

Now imagine you're a scuba diver in the ocean, or on a roller coaster at an amusement park. You can load apps on your phone that give your this experience when you put your phone in a Google Cardboard or manufactured viewer. The cardboard version costs under $5, and a manufactured viewer costs $20 to $30. If you want a standalone viewer with many more bells and whistles and a much more realistic experience, the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive viewers will cost you $1500 and up.

There are already quite a few apps available to explore museums of the world, animated space adventures, or video games.

I first tried out the cardboard version, then bought a manufactured viewer at Amazon, where many different ones are available. Here is the one I have, which is one I found that fits my large Nexus 6 phone:

I have previously posted on 360 images and Google's Cardboard viewer to watch them. Now Google has the ability to livestream 360 videos. Click on the video below to see an example of six of them. Use the arrows in the upper left corner of the video to move around in it.  An article about it is on the Google Blog here:  http://googlesystem.blogspot.com/2016/04/youtube-adds-360-degree-live-streams.html

Something to think about: Will there come a time when movies will come out in streaming video so you can watch them on Netflix in 360 view? If so, that could be the time when streaming video distribution exceeds theater viewing.

Amazing! It looks like we're only scratching the surface of what computers can do.

This video illustrates the vision and willingness of the Tesla Motor Company to take huge risks to revolutionize the battery industry to make electric vehicles economically practical. It demonstrates why the huge battery mega-factory in northern Nevada was necessary.

To understand this, you need to understand Google Cardboard.
The future is clear. Experience actual reality with Google Cardboard Plastic.
