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.

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...

On the other hand, we are wrong if we associate entertainment only with the game industry. Today, such sectors as retail, education, health care, military, angineering or real estate use different forms of entertainment for learning purposes. If we...

Because in the real world, I'm not an exception. I'm half the audience Adi Robertson   Although there are many differences between women and men in the way we perceive and process particular situations emotionally, the experience is not something given to only one gender.

"We only know ourselves to the extent that we have been tested," Wislawa Szymborska wrote in her poem "A minute of silence after Louise Wawrzyński." It is difficult to predict how we may behave in a stressful situation that will require  taking immediate action. I hope not to ever find myself in such.

There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics. Benjamin Disraeli   It is amazing how big ideas come to the people’s minds  in the context of the VR revolution! How much they (inventors and enthusiasts) want to immerse themselves (and us) into the virtual world of entertainment, services and other experiences! And this is just the first year, when consumer versions of devices to dive...
