Posted in: 'Ghostbusters' backlash brings out Internet trolls See in context

I saw the trailer to this and I have to say that a bad flick, whether it stars men, women or a teaspoon, is a bad flick. And this one looks terrible. Very few movie goers wanted this film made in the first place, Bill Murray tried his best to avoid being in it. At this point, with interest being so low, I guess they have to grab onto anything for exposure, even if it's to "Internet trolls".

Thanks for the heads up. This worked great on the Vive, you can walk around Totoro's bus stop and the boiler room was awesome!

Palm oil industry has destroyed ~10 million hectares in Indonesia and is threatening both species of orangutans, tigers, etc, etc. It's well known as one of the worse ongoing environmental catastrophes this century.

VR is here to stay. The Vive and the Rift launch in the next few weeks. Play Station's VR will launch next October.

I've followed the tech for three years and will put my money on the HTC Vive: room-scale, better tracking from day one, and it's already backed by experiences developed by NASA, Valve, and Lucasfilm (yah, lightsabers). Can't wait!

Posted in: For virtual reality pioneers, no rush to succeed in 2016 See in context

Motion sickness won't be a problem at all for the vast majority of people. The consumer versions of both the Rift and the Vive have a refresh rate of 90 Hz, much higher than the development kits shown last year.

While the Vive does offer "room-scale" VR, the Oculus doesn't really offer 360-degree views, it does have some occlusion right behind the user, due to having only one (front-facing) tracker sensor.

Posted in: Apple quietly working on virtual reality: report See in context

Quietly and lagging behind by over a year. Oculus started development almost three years ago. Personally, I'll be preordering the HTC Vive next month.

Are bosozoku associated with right-wing groups? Some of the images seem to point in that direction.

As someone who followed NAFTA closely from its inception in the early 90s, let me assure you something: This will only, truly benefit a small fraction of people, the one that needs it less at that.

But yay, butter! /sarcasm

Okay, I don't get it. To deep for me. Maybe Genki can explain it in his next tweet.

He's said it over and over: "We all are one."

Statistically, that is the least of your health concerns when running ultra-marathons. Just look at that ridiculous quote. Ok, don't run marathons with one month of training.

So many questions... How on earth did they get to this point? Random boys, a mom and their children beating a 17 year old to death. There has to be a very sad, twisted story of extremes in here.
