How Massive Can You Make Virtual Reality, literally?

How Massive Can You Make Virtual Reality, literally?

Ever since the Oculus Rift hit Kickstarter several years ago, VR enthusiasts have been on the edge of their seats waiting for the brave new world powered by virtual reality… which to date has been slow to come at best and a dud at worst. Oculus got swallowed up by Facebook and has been sitting in a pile of hopeful applications yet to come ever since. Samsung’s Gear VR is being practically given away on street corners in an attempt to gain users. Everybody else in the game is experiencing similar results. That might be because as cool as it is to sit in one place and be able to experience concerts or sports events from around the world in 3D while on your couch, and as cool as it is to be immersed inside of a game instead of playing as – really – more of an observer of the action than a part, the holy grail of VR is still what most people dream of and are waiting for. Anyone who has read any of my posts regarding virtual reality, augmented reality, or the like know that I’m referring to, of course, a Holodeck-like experience. True immersion comes when…

Doob 3D Could Replace the Photo Industry with Real-Life Sculptures

Doob 3D Could Replace the Photo Industry with Real-Life Sculptures

For centuries, people commissioned painters to create portraits of them or their families to hang on the walls (if they could afford to do so). The invention of photography brought this luxury of self-admiration to the masses.  As cameras became commonplace everyone began snapping photos at weddings, holidays, and other important events. Then came the digital age, the camera phone, and finally the smartphone, and suddenly there were billions of pictures and videos being taken and posted online daily. And as we all know, a huge chunk of these were – or rather are, since we’re now up to date – selfies. We’ve been spending time looking at ourselves since mirrors were invented, and the domination of selfies across image sharing sites shows that this habit isn’t going anywhere soon. But like everything else in life, technology keeps reinventing and changing how we do things. In this case, how we admire ourselves. After all, photos are so last century. It’s time we were able to admire ourselves in new and better ways. Doob 3D, a 3D printing company, agrees. The Dusseldorf-based business now has four 3D scanning booths set up in the US – two in New York and one each in…

Can SyncThink Read Your Mind?

Can SyncThink Read Your Mind?

Boston-based SyncThink has received their tenth patent in the US, if it holds up to legal challenges from other VR companies exploring similar advances. The patent is related to tracking eye movements in virtual reality headsets, an application which they’ve already put to good medical use and which has the potential to open up many new possibilities in VR technology. Earlier this year SyncThink, founded by Dr. Jamshid Ghajar, MD, PhD, FACS, and President of the Brain Trauma Foundation, gained FDA approval for their EYE-SYNC device. EYE-SYNC is a neuro-technology device which tracks eye movements is order to determine if a sports player has developed a concussion during or after a game. The device tracks the eyes for abnormal movement, which is a hallmark of concussions, and according to the company can return a diagnosis in sixty seconds, and is accurate and reliable. Stanford University’s Sports Medicine program is already using EYE-SYNC to screen athletes during games and determine whether they can return to play, and they believe it could become the diagnostic gold standard for sports-related concussions with every team and organization from high school through the professional level. While sports and military injuries are the primary focus right now, the implications…

Can CodeFights Get You That Developer Job?

Can CodeFights Get You That Developer Job?

So you finally decided to learn how to code so you could become a programmer and still be able to find a job once the robots take over everything else. After all, you can learn how to code online for free, so you didn’t even have to worry about taking out student loans that wouldn’t be paid off for decades. Great! Now, how do you find a job once you’ve honed your skills? Believe it or not, technology has actually made the hiring process harder for companies in most cases, not easier. They put out a job listing and get back a pool of resumes which all look pretty much identical, with the exception that half are unqualified according to their requirements. Then comes the tedious process of interviewing several or dozens of applicants and trying to figure out through divination which one is the right fit. It’s frustrating, maddening. Meanwhile, here you sit. You don’t have a degree from some ivy league school, and you’ve never worked in Silicon Valley. Why even apply, knowing you’ll get filed with the second half – otherwise known as the trash bin? Just when you’re ready to give up hope and go back to…

Giftbit is Giving You Your own Online Currency and Gift Cards

Giftbit is Giving You Your own Online Currency and Gift Cards

When Leif Baradoy was helping his brother move he found a drawer full of unused gift cards. This was the inspiration for Giftbit, the company Baradoy would go on to found with Peter Locke. Giftbit offers companies a service where they can send customers digital gift cards with set expiration dates through email, then follow up via email to remind the customers to use the cards before they expire. Because of their business model, the company loses no money if the customer doesn’t respond. “Giftbit customers are able to track, audit, and manage their gift card offers and campaigns down to the recipient level,” Baradoy told GeekWire last fall. The company received venture funding early in 2016 from Founder’s Co-op and Freestyle, and in the time between then and now have identified a need that they have just announced during TechCrunch Disrupt SF that they will fill, the need for a business to be able to create their own digital currency on the fly and in whatever form they want – promo codes, refund credits, or digital gift cards for sale. This new offering can help businesses in a number of ways, but the one that jumps out to me is retaining profits when a customer decides they want…
