Have you ever wondered on which side of the Force you would like to be? Yes, this question can be treated as a short psychological test about our relation to the transformations of contemporary culture and entertainment, including the VR. But it's not about our preferences and tastes. No. It is in fact about the duel:   Virtual reality vs. the World   I'm not a specialist in this...

The future was invented a long time ago! Now we are waiting for apropriate tools to accomplish some brilliant ideas of the past.   I'm not saying that we are suffering from the lack of originality or that we are narrow-minded.

You may ask “Why?” The answer is simple: It is  possible because the control system in these devices is based on the person's body movements which are transferred to the game world during a simulation session. In specific medical cases, this...

To be frank, I'm a little surprised as 90% of the information that I found about the virtual reality is about new games productions.

CAVE Cave Automatic Virtual Environment. I'm thinking hard how to compare it to VR goggles? Although they are completely different products, the assumptions are similar: convincing the user that he is in a different space, showing something that is not possible to see in the real world or just something real, but immaterial. So in one word: trick the senses ...

We are looking for information, and we always see only a piece of it. We got used to perceive the world from such perspective, from a distance. We do not like to be heavily involved in something. We should understand that showing just a slice of reality is a great tool for manipulation. The question is, “What are we really looking for?”   There are places and...

Our education largely depends on the coincidence. We do not know  what teachers we will have in a given course? Will they make a good impression on us? Will they inspire or discourage us? Will they have a gift to share their passion with us?   As always, there are great leaders among them who can explain difficult subjects to us in a simple way. Their charisma...

Phygital… in general it is the space in which physical and digital reality meet, mingle, and interact. But I wonder what  it really is.   It may sound wired, but I heard about phygital for the first time during CES 2016, and I liked it. A beautiful phenomenon, when new technology entails the appearance of  new words, neologisms. To be frank, I have not tried to reach...

I think for the majority of us the notion of home has rather positive associations. It gives a sense of security and intimacy. However, in certain circumstances, our house becomes a prison from which we do not want to run away. Or we just simply cannot.   We happen to face various situations in our lives, some are favorable, and some are not. One day, we can...
