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…

Haptic Suit Technology and Virtual Reality Porn can kill a Marriage — Thank God!

Haptic Suit Technology and Virtual Reality Porn can kill a Marriage - Thank God!

What’s there to say about Vir­tu­al Real­i­ty Porn?  Let’s begin with the fact that Samsung’s Gear VR pow­ered by Ocu­lus sold out in 2 days on Ama­zon over the 2015 hol­i­day sea­son. To make this even more inter­est­ing Gold­man Sachs, one of the largest bank­ing firms pre­dicts Vir­tu­al Real­i­ty will dom­i­nate over Tele­vi­sion in 10 years’ time. Gold­man Sachs ana­lyst Heather Belli­ni says of Aug­ment­ed Real­i­ty and VR, “it’s real­ly going to change, I think, many aspects of our life and be com­plete­ly dis­rup­tive,… over the next 10 years, it’s going to take off.” Gam­ing and enter­tain­ment will dri­ve much of the growth, but car mak­ers, retail­ers and even inte­ri­or design­ers could bank on VR tech­nol­o­gy, Gold­man said. Now make note all of this is based on hard­ware sales, Gold­man Sachs’ esti­mat­ed VR soft­ware sales fig­ure of $72 bil­lion, VR would gen­er­ate $182 bil­lion, near­ly twice as much mon­ey than the TV mar­ket. You know what I say? That’s absurd, I say the Vir­tu­al Real­i­ty Porn indus­try is gonna blow past those num­bers way soon­er than 2025! And let’s not for­get that it’s going to be way more than just visu­al stim­u­la­tion! Vir­tu­al real­i­ty is how the mass­es will be…

Marriot and Samsung turn your Hotel room into a Virtual Reality Fantasy Hub!

Marriot and Samsung turn your Hotel room into a Virtual Reality Fantasy Hub!

Mar­riot hotels is tri­al­ing a new enter­tain­ment ser­vice that would bring Vir­tu­al Real­i­ty into your rooms with a Sam­sung VR head­set and head­phones. The team up of Mar­riot and Sam­sung are call­ing it the “Vroom Ser­vice” and are test­ing it for a cou­ple of week in their New York and Lon­don hotels. The VR head­sets and head­phones will be deliv­ered direct to a guest’s bed­room where they can enjoy an “in-room vir­tu­al real­i­ty trav­el expe­ri­ence.” Last Sep­tem­ber Mar­riot had tried a full sen­so­ry sim­u­la­tor that uti­lized an Ocu­lus Rift heas­d­set with envi­ron­men­tal con­trol (i.e., wind, smell, tem­per­a­ture) for giv­ing vir­tu­al guid­ed tours of Hawaii and Lon­don. Coin­cid­ing with the Vroom Ser­vice will be “VR Post­cards”, an all-new VR con­tent plat­form that pro­vides an “inti­mate and immer­sive trav­el sto­ries that users expe­ri­ence in 360 3D via a vir­tu­al real­i­ty head­set”. Matthew Car­roll VP at Mar­riot Hotels says “VRoom com­bines sto­ry­telling with tech­nol­o­gy, two things that are impor­tant to next gen­er­a­tion trav­el­ers.” Some of your first VR expe­ri­ences will be an ice-cream shop in Rwan­da, Chile’s Andes Moun­tains, and the streets of Bei­jing. If VR just isn’t your thing, Mar­riot also locked down Net­flix (jobs at Net­flix) for your hotel room TV. Sweet!…
