    Cam site CamSoda announces OhRoma scent mask integration for exactly the reason you’re thinking

    As we approach the coming apocalypse we need bread, circuses and odors to keep us entertained. That’s why CamSoda, a NSFW webcam site, has announced the OhRoma, a VR-compatible scent mask that injects the smells of roses, perfume and private parts into your VR webcamming experience. Yeah. You read that right. Why do you want to do such a thing? Well, here’s what the CEO… Read More

    The reality of VR/AR growth

    “VR will be big, AR will be bigger and take longer.” What sounded revolutionary when we first said it two years ago has become accepted wisdom. But now the market has actually launched, and we’ve got 12 months of real-world performance and major tech players’ strategies emerging. And that’s changed our views on VR/AR growth. A lot.

    As VR and AR mature, they’ll borrow more of each other’s expertise; from the one, more immersive environments; from the other, intelligent means of walking the line between virtual and real.

    I rocked out in Rock Band VR at CES and I liked it

    VR is a tricky medium to do well, but Harmonix’s upcoming Rock Band VR might just be the perfect fit.

    VirZOOM mashes up VR, Fitbit and exercise bikes to bring vSports to the masses

    Strapping a VR headset to my face and taking a seat on an exercise bike isn’t my idea of fun, but fun was exactly what was served up when I tried out VirZOOM’s platform. A cycling game was obvious, given the input mechanism, but a flying pegasus and a tank game were not. The games were both eye-openers in terms of taking exercise and VR, making it more than the sum of its parts. Read More
