Wireless VR Streaming to an iPhone
I’ve been tinkering with my new HTC Vive VR headset and was recently able to wirelessly stream the stereoscopic image to an iPhone 6. This was accomplished using Moonlight for iOS, a HTC Vive VR HMD, and a gaming rig loaded with a i7-6700k 4GHz CPU and a 980ti Hybrid GPU. This setup currently only mirrors what is displayed on the Vive.
Edit Your Neighborhood in OpenStreetMap
Sick of the errors in the new iOS 6 Maps app? Consider adding or updating OpenStreetMap (OSM) data. OSM is a crowd-sourced world map, think wikipedia for maps, that can easily be edited once you create a free account on their website. OSM is one of the data sources used for generating what you see in the iOS 6 Map app.
The Toys of Tomorrow
I love toys. Fews things make me as happy as wandering through aisles of toy stores on the hunt for the future. I work on visualization systems at work and toys are a way for me to see what kids are acclimating to. I’ve recently been on the lookout for toys that integrate with phones. I have a suspicion that phones will become the platform to holodeck type experiences in the near future. I want to share two devices I’ve recently discovered, the Apptoyz appBlaster and the Hasbro my3D.
