Everyone heard about EVE: Valkyria where you are an elite space fighter pilot, but there are many games that should turn our attention too.

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. We often do not even realize that somewhere in the dusty recesses of libraries there are forgotten books whose authors developed a variety of wonderful devices...

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. I do not deny the fact  that thinking of new virtual reality (VR) games and exploration of wonderful worlds gives me the chills. But I am also aware that outside the market of games amazing things do happen. Nevertheless, I anticipate...

Sport events,concerts, and conferences come closer to us than ever before. Sitting comfortably at home or lying in bed, we can feel equally  excited as if we were at an important game or concert,...

As far as I remember, the University of Colorado has launched  a program, Virtual Reality Initiative this year. Why? To provide its students equal access to VR technology! Although I look up to Polish higher education, such news really surprise me. In a positive way, of course. There are places in the world where education and modern technology are combined. It is important to recognize the...

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 ...

I have just read that the French Sephora is the largest perfumery chain in the world. What is the largest perfumery chain doing? Of course, investing in virtual reality!   With face recognition technology, a woman can see how she looks in a particular shade of lipstick and if she is satisfied, she can immediately make a purchase online. Of course, emotions play an important role here,...

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...

Without Competitiveness There Is No Success   Who nowadays has enough time to stroll through the city to visit local shops, hidden in a maze of streets. What these shops have to offer is far from big brand shops, which are  systematically changing assortment and cooperating with well-known designers.   Today, we need all-in-one services to save our time. And, if accidently we go to our local area, we...

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...

  “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, iInvolve me and I learn.” Benjamin Franklin   This paper is going to address a somewhat unconventional topic -  books. Why? Because they show a regularity on social needs, and the essence of any business is to satisfy the needs. Of course, the needs are various, and  we are not able to satisfy all of them, but...

“The world of reality has its limits; the world of imagination is boundless.” Jean-Jacques Rousseau   We are just at the beginning, and certainly we cannot imagine all the possible applications of new products introduced by the Augmented Reality or Virtual Reality (AR/VR) industry. But those VR devices that have emerged so far are impressive. And they are going to be much, much better. You may ask: what if...

Could there be a better place to present innovations from the world of technology and entertainment than Technology, Entertainment and Desin (TED) conferences? Virtual reality, augmented reality, and video360 dominated the CES in January, and now it is time for new challenges. Although the rank and prestige of TED match or even exceed the popularity of Las Vegas’ tradeshow, the event has different assumptions. The...
