Yeah, it's going to be a big deal. Entire new wave of entertainment coming. Quality is good enough to feel 'presence'. "Seat scale VR" is not as good as "room scale VR", though. Save up for a Vive.

Super god-damn smart, this dude is. It's amazing the amount of knowledge somebody can have. He sees the future and his optimism is infectious.

Oh, and he did kind of invent the way we interact with the internet.

The Wachowski's do their Star Warsy Flash Gordon

Some months ago I posted all the movie poster artwork from Jupiter Ascending. After watching the film several times now, I realize why there is such a wide variety of themes presented. The reason is that the movie pulls from so many popular sci-fi films of the past. In roughly album order, see if you can guess which poster matches each description:

Matrix: because it is the Wachowski's
Logan's Run: life feeding on life
SW:EP2: Super-jedi with princess
Dark City: ruled by evil overlords
Brazil: Ridiculous bureaucratic dark comedy

Most dislike these kinds of movies; Oblivion being another recent favorite of mine. (Check the memes here:

But I enjoy them immensely. I like to see all the memes being resurrected from our culture and portrayed in an epic metaphorical way.

High Fantasy!

Star Wars archives

More geeking out over SW7:T2 had me hunting around. Found this one from 6 years ago on YT which is ancient history in internet time.

But it is about as cute as you can get.

Reality is Hackable (tm)
Introduction
Jason has had a long and sordid career helping to pioneer the field of Technical Art. After starting the Motion Capture studio for Sony Computer's first party Playstation Development he learned Character Rigging and Scripting while making Cinematics, all told more than one hundred games over a dozen years. He then moved onto advanced Character research for games and gave several presentations for Kaydara, Alias, and Autodesk at Siggraph and the Games Developers Conference. These days he codes animation and art tools and develops large scale pipelines for open world sandbox games and MMOs while simultaneously researching the latest techniques in runtime animation systems. With his free time, he's working on Independent game development in Unity which will lead to the coming revolution in virtual digital spaces using Motion Control systems with Virtual and Augmented reality displays.

So far all my experiences at Tesla San Diego have been wonderful. A quick checkup on the window seal was taken care of promptly. When I recently went in to get the windshield replaced and a bit of the frame repaired, they provided a complimentary loaner vehicle and handled transfer to a certified Tesla body shop. Tesla's reputation for excellent customer service proved true with my experiences so far. Thanks again Jeff.
