Imagine if each of these words played out as a visual scene in your mind. For some synaesthetes, this is the stuff of the every day - and now we've found it can also happen with sign language...
People with synaesthesia can associate colours and tastes with written words. Now, for the first time, we’ve discovered this can also happen for sign language

'Star Trek' actors take series' first VR game for a spin
LOS ANGELES (AP) — It looks like the trippiest episode of "Star Trek" ever created. On the bridge of a starship resembling the Enterprise from director J.J. Abrams' "Trek" films, that series' Dr. McCoy is at the engineering…

Migraine sufferers who are sensitive to light might be better off seeing the world in green...
White, blue, red and amber light all worsen migraine pain, but green light seems to reduce it, perhaps by triggering less brain activity

I just entered in this contest and hope to win. I don't have a VR-capable computer right now, plus I can't afford the Rift or Vive headsets; that makes this the perfect solution for me!

If you enter, not only do you get a chance to win, but I get two more entries. Full disclaimer. ;-)
Virtual reality is nothing new, with the earliest attempts to commercialize the technology going back to the 80’s and 90’s. Unfortunately, the tech just wasn’t ready. This all changed with the debut of the Oculus and its VR kit on Kickstarter back in 2012. With this ambitious headset’s introduction it seemed that virtual reality technology had evolved enough to finally offer the kind of immersion we had long dreamed of. Fast-forwarding to 2016, t...

I have a strange problem and I'm not quite sure where or how to report it. I use #PlayMusic for streaming music off a "station" and there is one song that keeps playing that is #mislabeled.

In Daydream Labs, we pair a dev with a designer and crank out a VR app experiment. The goal is to move fast, learn things, and share with the community. We also want this to be an open dialogue. We've learned a lot from others, standing on the shoulders of giants, and want to work together to help push VR hardware and app dev forward.

Really fine work, Joshua! And the black is lots of fun, eh? I use it about a quarter of the time! (I use every colour of the rainbow and then some!)

Introduction
Grew up in Washington State, attended private high school, got Associate's degree, then a BA with distinction in Linguistics from the University of Washington, got a job. Fast forward a few years and moved to Michigan, married my wife and have a wonderful little boy.

Oh, and I'm a hypnotist, a writer, poet, I like to sing, do martial arts, etc. I'm currently employed with a day job while working on getting employed in a field that's something I like and am good at. Like, say, writing. Or graphic design, website design or desktop publishing. 

And hypnosis on the side, unless it grows enough to be a full time business. ;)
