I admit I’m skeptical when it comes to virtual reality. I remember going to the South Florida Fair in 1991. I found my first virtual reality experience waiting for me, just past the pig races and the shifty carnies. I played ‘Dactyl Nightmare‘ in virtual reality for 10 minutes. The experience was disappointing and it scared me. Fast forward 20-plus years and we’re …

Be careful what OTG USB adapter you buy for your Raspberry pi zero. Right angle ones can be problematic and can block the power port.

After thinking about it a while. I can power the RPi0 over the GPIO pins as long as it's a clean 5v. Which means I can finish the prototype VR Camera before Christmas!

My favorite recent one was simply "FUCK DOUGLAS".  Every programmer has already or will work with a "DOUGLAS" someday.

Magic Leap says it will begin making it's AR headset soon. Call me skeptical... They still haven't shown what the thing looks like.  They only opened up to outside developers in June. Hopefully it has a bigger field of view than the current Hololens prototype by Microsoft. But after their stupid marketing "astronaut dance party" at TED I don't have much faith. Anything that needs to be marketed so hard before it can be presented to people has issues. http://www.engadget.com/2015/10/20/magic-leap-wsjdlive/

I got really tired of my headphones getting dropped when taking off the HTC Vive headset. I'm jealous of the Oculus Rift's integrated headphones. So I picked up some $22 headphones and modified them with some velcro and a bit of low temperature moldable plastic (Polycaprolactone a.k.a. Friendly Plastic or Thermoplastic) https://www.adafruit.com/products/2504

I just attended a Google IO16 talk about VR from with in AltspaceVR. I loved it. It was great sitting around afterward and chatting with others about the content. There were a few loud breathers that could be easily blocked. And at the very start someone started petting me. An admin kicked the knuckleheads out after a warning. All in all I'll definitely watch more talks this way.

Great quote, nice interview.  Oh and it was a hypothetical question, the other kind of question that is.
