Congressman Rod Blum (R-IA 1st District) has implemented ID checks for his town hall because he considers the concerns of Iowans and Americans from outside his district to be irrelevant. But when asked if he would accept donations from outside his district, he abruptly ends the interview saying, "This is ridiculous" and that he is being badgered; it was literally the second question he was asked. (The video is short; give it a watch.) It seems that for at least this member of the GOP caucus in Congress, your money is good, but your opinion is junk. What an utter coward.

Onwards with Conviction

There has been a lot of talk about how 2016 was a terrible year. That really solidified for me and many others on January 21st. That’s when +Neil Patel and I decided to do something about it. We started making a card game: a political satire card game we’ve just announced called Conviction.

With all of the building frustration from what’s happening in D.C., Conviction has given us an outlet for channeling that energy into making a great card game. We’re made a lot of progress in just a few months and our website shows a lot of sample cards and explains the game play.

In addition, since we didn’t want to profit from the Trump chaos, we decided to donate the proceeds to causes that are now more than ever in need. This way, we can make a fun card game and help contribute to charity at the same time. We’d love your support!

Do you have Conviction? http://bit.ly/GetConviction

Yesterday, +Leap Motion unveiled Orion: a new product we've been developing that is purpose-built for VR. Orion's hand tracking provides faster initialization, longer range, and improved robustness to complicated environments.

Watch the video below to see Orion in action, underneath the Geometric demo app. It's a nice side by side comparison of virtual reality to actual reality.

You can read more here: http://time.com/4226031/leap-motion-virtual-reality-orion-hands/

The best news is that Orion works on the existing Leap Motion controller hardware as well, so no need to wait to try it out.

Dive in today and let me know what you think!

The recent hackathon internal to +Leap Motion was a lot of fun (more details as linked), but also: that picture rocks.

You should check out the prizes!
