The wild and wooly world of virtual reality offers limited potential. Do you want to float through space as you eat a delicious slice of pizza? It could do that, although you might have to import the pizza in from the real world. Do you want to talk to a girl you’ve never had the guts to talk to in real life? The virtual world could do that, although if the real version of her found out you’d...

Google Glass just may be the ultimate in wearable technology. It is absolutely the most “futuristic” of all the currently available gadgets, that’s for sure. It’s so futuristic, however, that it is ahead of the curve regarding what is considered acceptable behavior in society. As such, some bars have banned Glass as other businesses. The issue here is privacy. If Glass can...

Second Life has been a burgeoning virtual world for eleven years now. That’s ancient in the world of the Internet. This fake world has long been the purview of S&M enthusiasts and a whole lot of other folks who just want to fly around and look at stupid stuff for an hour or two each day. Consider it the Minecraft before Minecraft. As such, the company that...

To those that don’t follow every minute detail of the wearable technology industry, it would seem as though Google has a lock on this so-called smart eyeglasses thing. However, there have been rumblings, major rumblings, from other big companies who are also dipping their toes in what used to be Google’s waters. Not to mention, Google has had years to...

When we think of the smart glasses phenomenon, we think of bizarre contraptions that help us to do all manner of ridiculous thing. Play games via a floating hologram in the air? Check. Get directions that only you can see? Check. Help you actually improve your vision which is, essentially, the entire point of glasses? Not so much a check. It seems that the act of improving one’s vision hasn’t...

It’s no secret that Oculus are uniquely positioned to utterly decimate the competition when these VR headsets start going head-to-head in the marketplace. Why? Well, they were first to market and have had years of research and development under their belts to ensure their product ships with the highest level of quality control. Also, uh, they are owned by Facebook who are worth approximately...

Google Glass is a real and it aint going away. Sure, it has its share of naysayers, saying something about “privacy” or “looking like an absolute dork in public.” But they can all go suck an egg because it’s not what Google Glass is now, it’s about what it represents for the future. This kind of tech is absolutely necessary to nudge society into an awesome dystopian...

Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. Once upon a time the biggest battle in wearable technology was that for supremacy over the smartwatch market. Sure, that battle still rages on, but now there is yet another skirmish. The battle for overlordship(new word?) of virtual reality goggles is on like a virtual Donkey Kong. Oculus may have been first out of the gate, and still market leader(if you...

There may be a time, coming very soon, when virtual reality becomes more important than, well, real reality. Real reality is filled with bills and long lines and stale slices of pizza. Virtual reality is filled with flying skateboards, talking gorillas and, uh, fresh slices of pizza. Like most sea changes, the children will lead the way. Their innocent hands clutched...

How long will it be before we get to quite literally share every second of our lives with other people? In short, how long will it be before the term “walk in another man’s shoes” actually means just checking out his live stream. Well, with AR-enabled eyeball hitting the market will full thrust, thanks to Google’s Glass, that future is practically...
