Virtual reality field trips!!

Teachers have an tablet app that they control the students' Google Cardboard devices. They visit famous landmarks, go under the ocean, visit other planets. This is the future of education and shows how virtual reality is going to change a whole lot of industries.

This sounds really quite cool.

From what I understand full version of Android has been used for a lot of small devices, when they really don't need the full Android. So this is a stripped down version that seems will work a lot better. Also from what others have said on Twitter (I'm not exactly an expect in this field) is one of the biggest problems is getting wifi and bluetooth working on devices and this apparently will support both out of the box.

The latest Oculus Rift VR experience from my work the +Secret Location  will be available in select theatres in 5 Canadian cities (Toronto, Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary & Montreal) starting this Friday May 22 and going until Friday June 5th.

It's an VR experience for the upcoming movie Insidious 3. In Toronto it's going to be set up in 2 locations, Cineplex Yonge Dundas theatre and Scotiabank Theatre.

It's free to check out, you don't have to buy movie tickets to get access to the area where it is set up. Note that this video shows the US version that has been touring recently. The Canadian version won't have a truck filled with a bit of a haunted house experience, but rather just the VR experience.

More info should be available on the Canadian Insidious Facebook account:

Awesome to see Unity work so closely with Microsoft on HoloLens.

Introducing Elizabeth Fabb.

So I'm going to be online a lot less the next 2 weeks. So I might take a while to get back to anyone.

Weta Workshop has made a small VR experience using assets straight from the Hobbit movies, with 500 foot Smaug staring you down and talking directly to you with voice of actor Benedict Cumberbatch. This sounds absolutely amazing and I can't wait to try this out for myself.

Also I wonder if this demo is what helped convince Peter Jackson that his next project would be a VR project.

They did this demo with that new Titan X graphics card and it got 90fps with movie-cgi quality. Probably going to cost $1500 though.

Google moving it's lead designer from Google Search to the Google Cardboard team shows that they are getting quite serious about VR. I wonder what VR announcements might come with this year's I/O?
Google invests a major design talent in VR. Something must be afoot.

+Emanuele Ziglioli well, you can buy a Google Cardboard kit made out of plastic, foam, metal, wood and probably other materials that I'm not aware of anymore. One of the rumors going around is that Google will rename Google Cardboard at I/O as it is no longer descriptive of the headset which can really be anything.

An ex-NFL quarterback has created a virtual reality company to coach football players. Apparently the quarterback that used it 20 minutes before a game improved their plays, as it helped them remember these plays. NFL teams are now interested in using the technology.

I really don't follow sports, but I think it shows how much VR will change training of all sorts. From professional sports to NASA to driving schools to corporate training.

I've been going to this store for quite some time despite there being other comic book stores closer to where I live. Their pricing is really great especially for tradepaperbacks. The owner is often working there and is really nice, friendly and helpful. If there is anything they don't have in stock, they will be happy to order it for you.

One of the absolutely best comic book stores in Toronto. Their selection of titles is really great especially when it comes to independent publishers.
