Virtual Reality’s New Horizons: Enterprise Apps and Gloves for Typing – NewsFactor Network

Posted: February 13, 2017 at 9:20 am

When it comes to virtual reality (VR), the technology most frequently arises in discussions surrounding gaming and entertainment. But one of the hottest technologies of the last several years may ultimately find that the enterprise market is the one that provides it with its killer app.

While much of the interest in VR last year came from gamers, this year enterprise apps may take the lead in the market, according to analysts. In fact, the fastest growth area for VR is in non-gaming sectors.

Training and Education

Perhaps one of the most obvious non-gaming applications for VR technology lies in the design space, since VR’s 3D interface can allow designers to manipulate objects in every dimension. Architects are already using the technology to help design buildings and interiors. VR may also hold significant promise for prototyping, as it is able to fully render 3D objects.

Education and training are two other areas that are expected to be heavily impacted by VR technology in years to come. HTCs virtual reality headset Vive (pictured above), which was co-developed with gaming platform Valve, is being used to help train new firefighters by providing more realistic simulated environments where they can practice their skills.

The same sort of approach could be applied to other fields that require extensive training but for which creating realistic simulations is difficult. Police and military training facilities spend a lot of money building real-world simulated environments to provide trainees with experiences that are as close to reality as possible. Switching to VR-hosted simulations could make training much cheaper, while also making it more accessible.

Virtual Keyboards

Facebook, meanwhile, is looking at ways that its VR technology can be applied throughout the enterprise market, rather than just for training new employees. Through its Oculus Rift VR subsidiary, Facebook is developing accessories that could allow workers to apply VR technology to their existing workflows.

For example, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg recently demonstrated a new set of glove controllers for the Oculus Rift platform that could potentially allow users to manipulate virtual keyboards to type, eliminating the need for laptops to conform to the keyboard form factor.

The ability to type in virtual reality could be a significant boon for people who spend much of their days in front of their monitors. According to reports, engineers within Facebook are already experimenting with using the gloves to make programmers more productive. In theory, coders would be able to display their codes on virtual monitors of any size, allowing them to work with much more code at once.

Oculus Rift’s new gloves may also provide haptic feedback, which could open up entirely new fields of applications for the technology. By allowing users to input information using gestures and hand movements, VR technology could open up telecommuting work to entirely new jobs. Surgeons, for example, could perform operations on patient hundreds of miles away.

Transhumanism: The Scientific Pursuit of The Supernatural …

Posted: March 2, 2015 at 6:45 pm

Did you know that there is a direct link between fallen angels, Biblical giants, pagan mythology, and modern transhumanism? The current scientific interest in transhumanism can be traced back to the ancient past, in which we find supernatural motives behind the idea of creating a transcendent man. In fact, that is where the word Transhumanism comes from. It is a combination of the words transcend + human. If you believe that this is the stuff of fantasy, please be aware that this is based on real science and has also inspired the new movie, Lucy. The origins of modern transhumanism use to be in figuring out how to combine humans with animals or humans with plants. But, now with our current level of technology, we are looking at ways to combine man and machine in order to transcend what man currently is. Combining all three is also a very big possibility as well. Below youll find videos and links to all kinds of resources. Make sure you check them out.

Transhumanism and Genetic Armageddon

The push toward transhumanism could be the beginning of the end of the human race as we know it. This FREE 106 page ebook reveals the hidden agenda behind the drive to be more than human.

When we talk about hybridization, what we are referring to is taking two different things and combining them into a new thing. That seems like a great place to start. Lets look at the origins of hybridization.

In Matthew 24:37 Jesus told the disciples that the end of the age would be similar to the days of Noah. It was in the days of Noah that the Watchers first began to lust after human women. This lust turned into the sinful action of having children with them, which was against Gods will (2 Peter 2:4). Genesis 6:1-4 fully explains how the concept of a supernaturally inspired super human begins to take shape. Lets look at these verses in three different translations so that you can get a good grasp on this concept:

Media censorship is impossible, says Jaitley

Posted: January 15, 2015 at 7:42 am

New Delhi, Jan 15:

Censorship of information in the present age is an impossibility, Information and Broadcasting Minister Arun Jaitley said today but observed that aberrations like paid news are likely to creep in when news organisations do not have realistic financial models.

He said the definition of news and the behaviour of consumer have changed with technological advancement and something that camera cannot capture is hardly news these days.

Articulating his views on the media scene at a function here, Jaitley said, One of the worries is that the financial model for all (news) organisations must be a realistic model. If the financial model is not a realistic model, then imperfections will enter. And these imperfections will lead to aberrations. Paid news is one such aberration.

Paid news has been a concern about which even the Election Commission has been looking at ways to deal with.

At the same time, he made it clear that media censorship in the current age was not possible.

Fortunately, there are very few dictatorships in the world. But even if there were, censorship, because of technology itself would be an impossibility, he said.

Jaitley, who also holds Finance Ministry portfolio, said that in this age of competition and to gain more eyeballs, it may seem that quality is being compromised. However, he added that he had faith that in the long run, the best will succeed.

He said the rapid advances of technology in broadcasting sector have brought along their own challenges and it is difficult to predict the future horizons of this evolution.

With tools of information dissemination freely available, Jaitley said he had at times read his own speeches which he had never delivered.

BlueTech Forum 2012 – NASA Research and Experiments Water Technology Applications, Michael Flynn
NASA is the forefront of researching advanced life support and closed water systems for deep space exploration, and for expanding the frontiers for long-term human colonization of space. The focus on water has led to inventions and applications that we commonly use in everyday life. On our space station, Planet Earth, we have a limited supply of water and are increasingly looking at ways to sustainably meet water needs. These programs have yielded forward osmosis, osmotic distillation, and ammonia reduction mdash;just a few of the topics we will hear about in our engaging “Thinking Outside the Bubble” presentations.From:BlueTechResearchViews:0 0ratingsTime:22:52More inScience Technology
