Beloola is social virtual reality on the open web.
I kid you not. I saw it. I tried it. WebVR, no plugins. It works. Today, March 7, 2016.
They’ve got everything you’d need to have a social experience in a virtual world. Avatars with moving parts. Pick your clothes and appearance. A bunch of gestures you can control. Many different worlds. Freedom of mobility. And a chat window. Continue reading “Beloola – Social VR”
Virtual reality has obvious applications in the field of entertainment, particularly for gaming. But there are other areas in which the ability to create an immersive visual reality, without any of the dangers associated with its real-world equivalent, can be beneficial. One interesting example is the use of VR in therapy. Continue reading “VR in Therapy, Therapy in VR”
Could glasses, that exist today and project images of actual reality directly onto the retina, eventually evolve into a vehicle for allowing VR to be experienced without shutting out the outside world?
I for one have wondered what will be the future of VR goggles. It seems clear (pardon the pun) that until we can free our heads from the giant headsets that have to block out the real world, so that we can see the virtual world, we won’t be able to blur the lines between real reality, and virtual reality, to any great degree.

I need a logo for this site, and any big enterprise that may arise from it.
I think it behooves me to have a really 3-dimensional logo. It seems trendy these days to have a logo that is some sort of stylized cube with its vertices painted flat, as though for printing. I think I want something really, really 3D.
We hear a lot these days about the “Fourth Industrial Revolution”. There are people who refuse to acknowledge such a thing – there was one industrial revolution, and that’s all there is to it. If this is you – you may as well skip this post. If you don’t consider the possibility that we are entering the fourth industrial revolution, I’m not interested in convincing you it might be fun to consider what the nature of the fifth industrial revolution will be.

In a lot of ways, setting up a Minecraft Realm is easier than setting up a website. When you sign up for a website, you have to find a company, get in touch with the company, make payment, get login information, access your server, stuff like that. With Minecraft, it’s a complete and utter no-brainer. The Minecraft program overtly drags you through the entire process.
Minecraft Realms are so easy it’d make your head spin, and so useful and fun that if you’re even remotely considering it – it’s worth the bother.
In a 3D space – you can go anywhere. Up, down, left, right, around the corner – you can find yourself looking at something you looked at from another angle, and see it entirely differently – that’s something you do not experience with a 2D interface.
This is my 3rd post on 3dspace.com. I was playing around with three.js today, and I couldn’t help but notice how once I was thinking about 3D stuff, I was “thinking” in a totally different way than I do in almost anything else I do. I was thinking in 3D. Continue reading “Thinking in 3D”
