screen-shot-2016-10-24-at-4-48-35-pm

Eyefluence is company founded by William Torch and Jim Maggraff, with the goals to create eye tracking system that measures the intent of your mind, not just the motions of your eyes in order to control technology. This new system would allow a user to control device through movements of users eyes. This kind of tech may seem unnecessary for present day smartphones and PC-s, but as the world of immersive computing continues to barrel towards us it will become infinitely more relevant. Google certainly thinks so as it has just acquired Eyefluence for itself. According to an official statement on the Eyefluence blog: “Today, we are excited to announce that

NSFW: Miss Nanai Moans in English

Miss Nanai Collage

From the dawn of entertainment, the destiny of standards was often taken in hand by the Adult Entertainment industry. While frowned up in the West, several countries in the Far East have a much more relaxed attitude towards such forms of entertainment. That is probably due to the fact that they’re a highly regulated industry – more so than alcohol and tobacco, for example. Just like VHS, DVD and the online content streaming, adult entertainment is making inroads into Virtual Reality, with one of leading publishers launching their content in English. VRJCC is a Japan based indie group that produced “Let’s Play With Nanai!” claiming to

New Nintendo Switch Packs NVIDIA Tegra Processor

Nintendo Switch Gaming Console / Tablet

Today, Nintendo unveiled their next generation console, more known under the codename “NX”. The rumors of NVIDIA’s involvement turned very much true, as Tegra SoC was the only mobile processor deemed to have enough graphics horsepower to fulfill Nintendo’s mission of “gaming everywhere”. All we can say is watch the three-and-half minute video, enjoy in every second of it. In my personal view, Nintendo has done it again: This tablet-console-mobile gaming enables you to play high-resolution (even in Ultra HD quality thanks to upscaling) games on the TV, or on the go as a gaming ‘tablet’. Perhaps the key to Nintendo’s Switch is the logo, which symbolizes

Art has the ability to provide emotional stimulation changing the perception of reality in a relationship. An idea, that new energy, can be born and ultimately change our consciousness, how the world may be happening. Technology is also beloved in part for this reason and VR is the next step. I was in a strange and distant places and met a strange and distant people and then at one point, between piles of incomprehensible words.

Samsung Stops Production and Sales of Galaxy Note 7

samsung-galaxy-note-7-recall-fire-explosion-3-840x560

Samsung Galaxy Note 7 will probably go down the line as the most troublesome product in history of Samsung, and that says something. The Note started the “phablet” craze which resulted in every manufacturer – including Apple – coming out with a large “barely hold in the hand” smartphone. When it comes to the sixth generation (Samsung skipped Note 6), it will stay forever in infamy. After a rocky start with several random fires, and recall + replacement of faulty Note 7 models, Samsung experienced yet another problem – overheating. After the company replaced phones, those new units started to have the same problem as the old ones.

Technology Tricks Bring VR to 500 Dollar PC Level

Oculus Logo GDC 2016

Bulky, expensive hardware, technical glitches and questionable content are certainly the key barrier to mass adoption of AR and VR technology. Mass adoption is needed in order for any technology to became pervasive. With VR, that adoption is even more important as digital immersion can be overwhelming. As far as gaming content goes, it takes several years to create a big game, if you are being backed by a large publisher. To close the circle – when compared to the global gaming market, market for premium VR gaming is small. Oculus and HTC are both promising numerous experiences that will push those boundaries, such as Top

Pixel phones (should we call them Pixels? Ed.) come with five main points for these phones: Google Assistant, Photography, Google Photos, Communications, and Virtual Reality.
