One of my most useful VR tools that I have made so far is this stand for my VR Headset. I can have the VR system active and monitor the script code in the game engine at the same time. It even has hooks to hold the controllers and can mount to just about any light or mike stand! It is truly a versatile tool when you doing VR development and the parts are simple to get!

Every time I write anything on the subject of VR, I try to be brand neutral. However, I can't disregard the fact that I got the HTC-Vive first and Complete and got the Oculus Headset and basically sat until I got the Oculus Touch, before I did any true research on the subject. Now I know that some AAA Game developers got in the inside and got their stuff early, but as I told Oculus multiple times, me not being able to research the Rift and The Touch early would Bias my opinion towards the HTC-Vive given that it was the only Unit that I had and that is what it did!

Even though, in the end, It may be that now that I see the complete picture of Oculus and Indeed they have put their best foot forward in this effort, It maybe too late to quell any biases that I may have for one brand or another. In any research with such technology, I think that it is important that we all have the opportunity to see the best as well as the worst irregardless. I am a serious researcher that has both experience and wisdom and is jaded from the hype that surrounds any visualization tool like VR.

In the end, I'm going to see this stuff for what it is and that is what I think what people like those at Oculus fear the most. However, it should be noted, that I also see things with an open mind and do my best not to judge the warts in public at the start. My goal here is to encourage innovation and not to kill it and to that end I will practice my professional courtesy of confidentiality when asked and preserve some of the magic. After all I am a disciple of the house of mouse and know when not to tarnish the effect. In the end, that is the magic Carpet that Joe Public is going to ride on and who are we spoil the ride?

This is a quick demo that I did when I was experimenting with the Oculus Rift Avatar SDK. Ever since they released Oculus Touch, they have added a customizable Avatar Figure that you can use in your Oculus based VR games. Sorry for getting things off frame. The Oculus has a much bigger POV than what is displayed in the window and I have a hard time noticing inside the Rift.

Well, It's 2:00 A.M. instead of 3:00 A.M. tonight! That means that now Donald Trump tweets at 2:00 A.M. or now he can tweet at what was 4:00 A.M. but is now going to be 3:00 A.M.

Election Stress Aplenty in 2016 - This Buddhist Perspective:

Well, Election Season Stress is at an all time high! Last week, a conservative radio talk show host John Murphy, in Eau Claire, Wisconsin, just had enough of the "Hurricane Of Hate" he was hearing and quit on the air. CNN today, had a physiatrist to explain what is going on and how we could deal with it!

In the segment, it was explained that some of us are clearly in Crisis Mode and maybe we need to chill a little from the stress. I know that that's an easy thing to say and a hard thing to do, but for me it just been a case of looking at all of this from a perspective and make attempts to depersonalize the campaign.

Start by stop watching news outlets like CNN, CNBC and Fox News. I would even cut out BBC and RT. To say informed, watch them on the top of the hour for the first 5 min in the morning and evening and that's it.

Take a break from Social Media. Social Media as too much stuff that is taking about the candidates. Most of the stuff is rehash of the same old stuff, but a lot of it is not necessarily based on fact. They will say anything on the internet these days! If you're reading this, you're spending too much time on Google+ anyway and should be doing your Job, tasks, hobby, etc.

Hay, This is a good time to get a hobby! Learn something! Do anything that gets your mind off the campaign. I'm learning another Modeling program called Modo! Why, gets my mind off politics!

Finally, on November 8th, get out and Vote! I'm not going to go out there and tell you what to vote for, but get out anyway. If nothing else, Voting will give you the feeling that your participating in the solution to the problem, even if your feelings may not be in the majority, but at least your voice is being heard. Think of it that way and who knows, you might not be the only one.

And get ready for the post election anxiety! Yea, my candidate didn't get elected! What do I do now? Remember that the process starts over again leading to a November day in 2020! Sigh! Yep, here we go again!

Well, that's about it! If there is any closing message I could leave you with is that Buddhism is about learning to cope with things that happen to us that we have little control over, rationalizing our fears that we deal with in our daily life and moving face first into the inaudible future void with the confidence that we try to do our very best!

A Good Day to you all and my peace and harmony be with you always!

Big Oculus News from the Connect 3 Keynote:

So, some good news if you're an Oculus Rift owner. You can order your Oculus Touch Monday! Since some of you ordered your Rift on Oculus.com, chances are you're a first adopter. So you will be on the top of the heap when Oculus Touch ships (in fact you might have your email telling you about this now! Yay!

But that is not all, Some of you might not like the earpad headphones that you got when you got your CV1. Well here is some joy. You can buy special earbuds that fit in the same locations as the current earpads. Yep, they are replaceable and Oculus will sell you some ear buds that will replace them on Monday. The price is only $49 and will ship on Dec 6th.

But there is more! One of the questions you might have is Oculus Rift ever go Room VR, and the answer is Yes!

But to do this you not only have to buy Oculus Touch ($199), but your going to need another IR Camera. But never fear, Oculus has thought of that too. You can buy another IR camera to give you 360 room size coverage on Monday (Oct 10th) for a small sum of $79. This third camera placed in a triangle arrangement from the other two cameras will give you all the coverage you need.


So if your looking at a package compared to the HTC-Vive your looking at $799 for the Rift and the Touch, plus an added $79 for the extra camera, your looking at a grand total of $878 plus tax and shipping. Enjoy the future of gaming you all.
