While there are a small number of people (ie. Donald Trump) who feel that global warming is merely a hoax, the majority of us believe that climate change is certainly something we have to take quite seriously, at least if we care about future generations on this planet. With that said, I was recently browsing the VR sub on Reddit and came across an interesting topic, asking if mixed reality could possibly reduce carbon emissions in the future. ...

There hasn't been a company more hyped within the AR/VR space than that of Magic Leap. The company, which has been able to rake in over $1.4 billion at a $4.5 billion evaluation, has touted its technology as a paradigm shift in computer interfaces. Some of its investors include none other than Google, Alibaba, and famed venture capitalist, Andreessen Horowitz. With these names backing the company one would imagine that the hype is very real. ...

In order for a technology to really push into the mainstream, the first thing that needs to happen is for people to even know about it. A new study from Parks Associates shows just how far from the mainstream VR may really be. In the study, Parks Associates found that 63% of all Americans surveyed were unfamiliar with, or knew nothing about virtual reality what-so-ever. Only approximately 6% of males and 2.5% of females said that they were i...

While physicists mostly all will tell you that physical time travel is impossible, that may not technically be the case. While they are likely correct in the fact that we will never be able to physically transport our body and brain into a time other than the one we are living in currently, it may soon be possible to travel back in time within a virtual reality environment. Imagine if we could completely map a place and time via high-quality 36...

It's been a huge week for the VR space in general. Besides the launch of Oculus Touch, there has been two major industry-wide announcements, including the GVRA association and the Khronos Standard. Over the final few weeks of 2016 I have a feeling the news will just continue to pour in. Below are the 10 most active stories posted on VRTalk.com over the last 7 days: - Room Scale, & Eye-Tracking Coming to Next Gear VR Headset? -

Unity Wants to Bring Artificial Intelligence to VR - Poaches Uber Executive http://vrtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?5836-Unity-Wants-to-Bring-Artificial-Intelligence-to-VR-Poaches-Uber-Executive
Artificial intelligence seems to be all the rage these days. While the future is certainly bright in this area, there is still lots to be accomplished before it plays a noticeable part in most ordinary people's lives. With that said, Unity Technologies, the creators of the Unity cross-platform gaming engine used in many virtual reality games and experiences has apparently poached a major executive at Uber. Dr. Danny Lange, the head of Uber...

I gotta say I'm quite impressed with the new mobile virtual/augmented reality headset that Occipital has just unveiled to the world. The company that's known for their 3D scanning technology has just jumped into the VR/AR space head first with what may be the breakthrough for mobile VR/AR that we have all been waiting for. The Occipital Bridge headset is unlike anything you've likely seen before. It combines an ordinary VR mobile headset wit...

I must admit this is incredible. We are no longer bound to the limitations of a room.

The hollow lens was practically made for augmented reality only.

The beautiful thing about normal virtual reality is that you are operating on that world's virtual plain. The headset isn't required to scan the world around it but instead gives you the choice.

Sure it is big and bulky and looks unappealing but if you look at any virtual reality headset you should know that none of this is meant to be a fashion statement.

I will state this one more time, it is called VIRTUAL...REALITY. Focus on one reality and ignore the other.

For those of you who aren't already bullish on the prospects of the virtual, augmented, and mixed reality spaces, a recent report presented by Bank of America likely will sway your opinion. According to the report the market is ready to explode with innovation as well as incoming dollars. Bank of America has estimated that over 300 million VR/AR/MR headsets will be sold on the planet between 2016 and 2020. This would equate to approximatel...

If you own one of the major VR headsets then you likely have had headset envy in the past... An awesome game launches on one of the headsets you don't own, and you find yourself pissed at yourself for choosing the one you did. Well, hopefully soon much of this envy will vanish as multiple companies have just announced the Global VR Association. The Association's website reads as follows: To start off the GVRA includes the following membe...

I know black Friday and Cyber Monday are all over with, but that doesn't mean that there aren't still some incredible deals to be had on virtual reality gifts for the holidays. If you were one of those people unsure if you should get the Oculus Rift headset for yourself or a loved one this holiday season, then this offer is certainly very tempting. Today only, Amazon.com is offering the Oculus Rift headset at it's normal $599 price, but with ...
