Oculus Rift 2

It is maybe way too early to write something about this. This will be our future of gaming, TV, movies, operations and all kind of other things.

Last week there were a few experiments with the Oculus Rift you might wonder what is an Oculus Rift?
I will tell you The Oculus Rift is an upcoming virtual reality head-mounted display
It is kind of 3D experience and it is going to be just like when 3d experiences started. People that are tested did fall because of the heavy material they put into. 

We like experiments like this. You get a new generation of experience although it is very new and just introduced by marks like Sony and OculusVR.  This shows us that games but also museums will get a new dimension.

Take a peek at BBC America's upcoming history of sci-fi

About the Show

From Star Wars to 2001: A Space Odyssey, and from Jurassic Park to Doctor Who, each program is packed with contributors behind these creations and traces the developments of Robots, Space, Invasion and Time. Narrated by Mark Gatiss, Doctor Who writer, actor, and co-creator of the BBC’s Sherlock, the series determines why science fiction is not merely a genre… for its audience it’s a portal to a multi-verse – one that is all too easy to get lost in.
Among those taking part are: William Shatner (Star Trek), Nathan Fillion (Firefly), Zoe Saldana(Avatar, Star Trek), Steven Moffat (Doctor Who), Richard Dreyfuss (Close Encounters of the Third Kind), Chris Carter (The X-Files), Ronald D Moore (Battlestar Galactica), John Landis (An American Werewolf in London, Schlock), David Tennant (Doctor Who), Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future), Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner), John Carpenter (Dark Star, The Thing), Karen Gillan (Doctor Who), Neil Gaiman (The Sandman, Stardust), Kim Stanley Robinson (Mars Trilogy), Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap, Star Trek: Enterprise), Ursula K Le Guin (The Left Hand of Darkness), Syd Mead (Blade Runner), Kenny Baker (Star Wars), Anthony Daniels (Star Wars), Nichelle Nichols (Star Trek), Peter Weller (Robocop), Edward James Olmos (Blade Runner, Battlestar Galactica), and many more.

Update Sherlock Holmes comes to Museum of London

The Sherlock Holmes exhibition will give a better look on how Sherlock Holmes obsessive mind and analyses where mapped onto the labyrinth of Victorian London.

It will look further than the person. It will also look at him as a “real” complex and multi faced. The relation between him and London will also be one of the subjects.  

“SHERLOCK: Interactive Adventure” available on the App Store

“SHERLOCK: Interactive Adventure” available on the App Store 

An app which will make you look at interactive books in a whole new light

The app tries to get the book alive with interaction which include:

Original text
Audio readable
30 plot-based scene
3d animation
Interactive map of London 19th century

You can download it for free but not everything is available if you want everything you can buy in-app.
Download:  https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/sherlock-interactive-adventure/id820860824?mt=8 

Although I like the app itself they didn’t succeed in a couple of things. Go find out yourself and give a comment.
