Stunning look at where multi-player VR is headed. Watch at least until they throw the torch to each other. Wow!

Very disconcerting that I feel sympathy for this thing when it gets kicked. The robot armies are going to totally take advantage of this silly human trait.

Shows how much of our identity and thus empathy is visually biased.

Since these machines are battery powered they hopefully will push the 'range' limits that keep ICE in our cars.

Seeing the robo hippo with what seemed like an ICE was fun.

Something's been bugging me for a while now in the area of work that I have immersed myself in for the last few years. So I wrote blog post to explain -

It's easy to be cynical about this 3 year old concept productivity video from Microsoft,... just because it's Microsoft, but it's amazing how quickly this 'future' is coming to pass. Curved, edge-to-edge screens, Google Glass-like augmented reality, real-time translation, flat design (everywhere), projection mapping, voice interaction.... etc.... all doable / being done now. You really need to pause it repeatedly to take in all the detail. Sure... the narrative looks daft in places but you have to give them 10/10 for the overall effort.

When we look back in years to come and remember the pioneers of VR interface design, Aesthetic Interactive will surely be among them.

Considering this was done in 2012 before the Oculus led virtual reality renaissance it's pretty visionary stuff.
