Oculus VR is the Future of Reality

Carmack is a legend in the video game industry, responsible for basically inventing and perfecting the first person shooter videogame with titles like Castle Wolfenstein, Doom and Quake. Carmack previewed his clunky duct taped headset to a chosen few and also said ID Software was slow in their development, and it was frustrating. Then along came Rift, the virtual reality headset from a company called Oculus VR. Carmack left ID Software and joined Oculus VR.

The Latest Fitness Trends in Tech

There was a lot of great fitness based tech in 2013, from the Fitbit Force to the Nike+FuelBand SE. 2014 is only looking better and brighter for fitness and tech. This year we’ll likely continue to see increases in fitness tech, from a better focus on heart health to more integration between products.

The Evilution of Dungeons and Dragons

Now, mind you, my explanation may be a bit dated. D&D just celebrated its 40th anniversary. I haven’t been playing for forty years, but I probably started playing in about 1980 or 1981. Technically, I played the second version of the game, referred to as Advanced Dungeons and Dragons I, or just AD&D. When I started, we sat around a table with pencils, paper and dice, drank soda and ate snacks, went on many adventures and had a lot of fun. There was a time when I spent all of my weekly $5 allowance on D&D paraphernalia.

Sexual Harassment in the Con World and the Curse of the Booth Babe

Companies continue to use women to push their products in skimpy outfits and sometimes less. Sex sells and will always sell. Some conventions have cracked down, and apparently the use of “booth babes” has decreased. It’s never going to go away, but perhaps companies themselves could try a little harder. Use attractive sales people with product knowledge in professional outfits, not models or strippers hired for the day to stand around, look hot and pull in men.

A culture of harassment and acceptance in the industry is also supported by the news media. After every Con you’ll see “hot girls of…” galleries. Google “hot booth babes” and see what comes up. There are a number of “hot girls of cosplay” sites, and “geek culture” is huge.

Comic-Con 2014 Wrap Up

The Avengers were a hot topic this year as well. “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” is slated for next summer. Some footage was shown, and apparently the Age of Ultron will be a challenge for The Avengers. The clip ended with a close up of Captain America’s broken shield, and the other Avengers minus Iron Man lying on a rock floating through space. Concept art was also shown depicting The Avengers in an epic battle with Ultron’s army.
