Making, Learning, Collaborating, and 3D Printing in the Community: Dayton Mini Maker Faire

Back in March, when I visited Dayton, Ohio’s resident 3D printing bar, Proto BuildBar, I was told that its employees would be exhibiting at a local school’s STEMfest later that month, and at another educational event this summer: the Dayton Mini Maker Faire. After thoroughly enjoying my visit to STEMfest, I definitely didn’t want to […]

Most of us have still have so many faraway places we’d like to see, sports and activities we’d like to try, not to mention a host of dreams that we, well, dream of fulfilling. That bucket list can get a nice nudge today though with a little help from our friends in technology. While we’ve […]

Step Inside Your Minecraft World With New Oculus Rift Virtual Reality Version

The popularity of Minecraft is unlike that of any other game. The world-building video game is an obsession with several children (and adults) I know, and last I heard it had sold over 70 million copies. Educators have jumped on the popularity of Minecraft, using it to teach kids about coding and 3D design; I even have […]

Last year, we had a week of thunderstorms nearly every day. It was breezy and dramatic, and I took to opening the front door for hours during the day, and not worrying about closing the front screen that had a broken latch. I was nearby, working. What could possibly get by me, a writer, completely […]

Sometimes it’s rough having glasses. They fall off, they fog up, they get scratched, and it’s ridiculous trying to wear sunglasses over them – not to mention a virtual reality headset. People have been really excited about the Oculus Rift for quite some time now, but a Thingiverse user named Joshua Egstad (aka jegstad) noticed that […]

The advertising algorithms employed by Facebook are the stuff of legend, and for years they have been plagued by privacy advocates as invasive and excessive. Because Facebook is a free service, it is dependent on alternative forms of revenue generation, primarily with the marketing of its user base to those willing to pay. And considering […]

While Apple has always been notoriously tight-lipped when it comes to ongoing projects and technology development, it seemed a little off that we haven’t heard much from them concerning virtual reality.

They say that you should never learn how the sausage is made, because the chances are that you’ll never be able to eat the sausage again. I don’t think that truism has ever been more apt than when used in conjunction with the making of virtual reality porn. Even the making of regular porn sounds […]

Sketchfab Introduces New Virtual Reality Setting: Walk Inside a 3D Scene with the Click of a Button

This morning, I visited the home of Vincent van Gogh. His blue-walled bedroom was so well-kept that I almost believed he would return any minute and demand to know who I was and what I was doing in his house. Sunlight streamed through the open window, warming the wooden floorboards and illuminating the bright red […]
