This looks really cool.. 2015 will be remembered as the launch of virtual reality. The 2020s will be the first decade of immersive cyberspace.
HTC has just announced the Vive, a virtual reality headset developed in collaboration with Valve. It will be available to consumers later this year, with a developer edition coming out this spring....

Competition is good.

By the way the attribute that caught my eye the most was the so called 360 degree field of view.

Yet the thing is obviously only strapped to the front of your head.

If they mean fov so high that screen boundaries are imperceptible. Then I am really excited for this.

Next week I'll be meeting with 29 other engineers and researchers from around the US for a 3 day rapid prototyping session with the goal of designing a new augmented reality display and tracking system for the TALOS program.  Can't discuss the details due to NDA, but I'm very excited.
We suppose it was only a matter of time before the whole concept of high-tech, full body suits of armor started to be seriously considered as viable, and even necessary, additions to the army's equipment stores.

Things are moving so quickly, it feels like a race.
 
The AI from Google's DeepMind acquisition has learnt to play 49 different retro computer games completely without human input.
‘Agent’ hailed as first step towards true AI as it gets adept at playing 49 retro computer games and comes up with its own winning strategies

Fretting over or raging about the minority of protesters who are behaving horribly or the minority of police who are brutal and corrupt is a typical human response. We are all very good at identifying and locking onto problems. It is a trait that has been biologically selected for because it has helped us survive over time. Could that be a man eating lion I see in the tall grass over there? Let's focus on that threat! How about we take the next step and put our efforts into doing what drives progress and makes our species truly great? Creating and implementing solutions! Here are a few quick ideas that immediately come to mind. What's stopping us?

1. Body cameras on all on-duty officers in the United States as Federal Law. Consider any officer telling a civilian to "stop recording" to be a highly illegal act as well. Review the recordings regularly for training and performance review purposes.
2. Implement a "2X" rule for sentencing of all officers convicted of committing serious crimes while on duty. No more special treatment and paid leave for officers who commit crimes themselves. If a cop pistol whips and robs a civilian (e.g., the whole Detroit thing) they should face twice the sentence that a civilian would get for the same crime. 2X across the board.
3. Significantly increase the salaries and benefits of law enforcement officers. If they are going to comply with the two items above (and so much more), they should be properly compensated and (ideally) respected and admired by the general public.
4. Start holding our media more accountable for either misleading or (in some cases) lying to the public for attention and ratings. Freedom of the press should not mean freedom to lie and mislead without repercussions. We need a (non-privately controlled) BBC style outlet here in the US. It's getting ridiculous.

If our scientists can split the atom, land men on the moon and put internet portals in all of our pockets how long should it take us to fully implement changes like those above? Three days? A couple of weeks? If my 4 simple ideas (off the top of my head) are crap, how long to come up with better ones and implement them? Surely there are things that 90% or more of US citizens will agree we should do ASAP. C'mon homo sapiens, get your act together! The universe is (potentially) watching and (probably) laughing at us! : )

Those seem like reasonable and simple solutions to this problem.

Though really this shouldn't be a problem at all.

I will be working with a small team of selected engineers and researchers to rapid prototype a new AR display and tracking system for TALOS this week. I know it's initially going to be a military product and many don't like the idea, but it seems like the most Transhumanist thing that I could be working on right now.. Heck, I'd like one of the helmets for daily use!
Everything from nanotechnology to quantum computing will change the game for how soldiers are geared up in the future.

That is some fast internet.. Bring on the 5G!
Researchers at the University of Surrey in England have achieved 5G speeds of 1 Terabit per second (Tbps) over 100 metres in the lab - by far the fastest wireless connection to date. The 5G, or fifth generation, mobile network will eventually...

I spent a day at the MIT media lab last week meeting with 6 of their 23 research teams in order to help foster new partnerships between academia and industry.  They encourage a very unique environment there that is designed to promote rapid innovation.  

The teams demonstrated so many different game changing technologies to me in one day that my head felt overloaded by the time that I left.  I was most impressed by their work on machine learning, advanced prosthetic limbs and enhancements, IoT sensor networks and printable circuits. 

Below is one of several web services that you can experiment with now.  Just log in with your email account to see your social circles automatically analysed over time.  Very interesting.

I ran it immersion on my gmail, and it showed four major groups.  Only my work group was disconnected from all others.  Curious.

The best tasting Chinese food that I've ever eaten. I've been there several times and everything on their menu that I've sampled was amazing.
