Can Vuze Become the Next GoPro?

VUZE Camera in Colorado Forest.

Just two years ago, betting on VR / AR was considered visionary, with scattered remnants of an ill-fated attempt to immerse us in a three dimensional world with quite frankly, a sub-par experience. 3D glasses would work if every household bought a 70-85″ TV, but the reality saw 32″ TVs being sold with 3D glasses.

This marks another chapter in the ever going battle of streaming services and providers. It seems that the online store giant is taking none of it from Google and Apple as it won’t allow Prime Video on neither the Apple TV and Chromecast devices. Likewise, the app is also not available for the Chromecast. The current generation of Apple TV (not the newly released one) is the 14th best selling device in the entire electronics section of Amazon. Currently is ranks 4th place

Watch Impressive F1 2015 Teaser and Gameplay Videos

F1_2015_announce_screen_4

The current state of affairs in Formula 1 is something that kept me away from the sport. The level of predictability simply got to my nerves and the overall appeal was lost along the way. On the other hand, my particular motorsport gaming attraction is growing stronger. One of the upcoming releases from Codemasters, dubbed F1 2015 , is a simulation game revolving around the most famous racing sport out there. But, will it make me (and everybody else) love Formula 1 once again? The teaser below is impressive to say the least. The last Formula 1 game I have played was back when I was in high school, and was one of
