It says something when you need a section called 'healthier cereals'.

The technology is now ready for the most awesome (physical) game.

This thought was triggered by the news of Oculus Rift being ported to Android, creating a Virtual Reality device where you can walk around! (Sounds dangerous, but bear with me).

Imaging going to a place like laser tag/quest, but as well as the pack and the gun, you put VR glasses on as well.

Now imagine that the location has already been mapped into the software, and Bluetooth beacons are distributed around the walls so it knows exactly where you are, and the glasses know which way you are facing.

Then imagine the VR screen is semi-transparent, and it uses google-glass like projection to add things to what you see. 

You and your friends could be running around shooting imaginary, but photo-realistic enemies like in Doom or Halo! It could even add things to the surroundings turning that boring warehouse into an alien planet.

First step to the holodeck...

I wish @Google would sort out the top bar:
1. They look like tabs, why the hell would you open a new tab when using them?
2. Please let me choose what is visible by default, that would be very different from what is there.

 A bit disturbing that you can buy 'Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Dummies' !

I'm testing out the community feature on Google+, if there are other people in the UK who race this might become a useful place for discussions.

"Never pack a pump again" - excellent. Airless tires which use a spring mechanism to sling-shot you along!
