Whale Con - The VR Pioneers: Catching Fire with WebVR
Christian Perry has been a community organizer and collector of knowledge on the West Coast for some time. His SF Beta events are one of many that have helped educate the masses to high tech and take entrepreneurs from idea to funded startups. Christian's latest endeavor is the podcast Whale Con: The VR Pioneers. I had the opportunity to chat with Christian a couple weeks back about all things WebVR and then some.
Enjoy and share any feedback below!
It has been a while since my last post. A lot has happened in the tech space and I will get back to blogging about all that stuff in time. Now I want to take a moment for my first fan. When I started this post, I planned to write something beautiful and poetic that captured some essence of how this person means the world to me. At the moment this is all I can deliver, tears and electronics don't mix. A proper tribute will come at another time. When I went deep dive into web 3D and immersive technologies back in 2000, my mom was my very first fan and supporter. As a self-proclaimed old lady that doesn't understand tech, she still has read every post, seen every image, listened to every interview, and watched every video I have posted about my adventure with tech. My father and the rest of my family are extremely supportive as well, but a mother's love and support is in a class of its own. In my younger years, it was just my mother and me. Looking back, she is the one t
With my recent blogs about digital worlds, I wanted to take some time to promote those people that are making a difference in our real one. Founded by Kate Stohr and Cameron Sinclair , Architecture For Humanity ( AFH ) is a non-profit charitable organization that seeks architectural solutions to humanitarian crisis and brings design services to communities in need. Cameron's outreach can be seen everywhere i ncluding interviews on CNN, TED , Sundance Channel (with Cameron Diaz ) and h is book Design Like You Give A Damn is a great read I highly recommend. Today seemed a great day to blog about this proactive organization as it is the launch week of their 2009 Open Architecture Challenge : Design the Classroom of the Future. We believe that where resources and expertise are scarce, innovative, sustainable and collaborative design can make a difference. By tapping a network of professionals willing to lend their time and their talents to helping those who would not other
Artificial intelligence (AI) is the intelligence of machines and the branch of computer science that aims to create it. Released during the Game Developers Conference, the now viral “Kara” concept video made by the Paris-based Quantic Dream, developers of the Heavy Rain game, is a look at the future of gaming, using full-body motion capture and a new computer-graphics engine. It is running in real time on Sony’s PlayStation 3 platform. The video is thought provoking as a robot comes to life and is quickly scared by the idea of how precious that can be. What I find interesting is that this type of artificial intelligence is not too far in the future thanks to friends like David Hanson of Hanson Robotics . I got the chance to hang out with David for several days during a trip last year to New Zealand and I was amazed by his work and the state of the A.I. industry. While I have some reservations about 'smart machines' thanks to Hollywood (Terminator, Matrix), David assures
