What’s up with Holograms and Hologram Projectors?

“Help me Obi Wan Kanobi. You’re my only hope.” Anyone who has seen the original Star Wars Movies would probably think about this scene when someone brings up hologram technology. You’re probably wondering in today’s day and age of self gene-editing, where all the holograms are? Also known as holography, we like to define this […]

5 Startups Enabling Virtual Reality with All 5 Senses

There’s a term people use to describe the slight discomfort that you get when you look into the eyes of a robot that looks like a human. The “uncanny valley” is what they call that feeling, but whenever we hear that term, we think of the incredibly well done short movie of the same name. If […]

Ultrahaptics – A Sense of Touch in Virtual Reality

While technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) may be at the height of “inflated expectations”, others like virtual reality (VR) have joined 3D printing to sit and sulk in the “trough of disillusionment” while waiting for commercialization to take hold.

Is Kopin (KOPN) Turning Into an AR/VR Stock?

8 New Virtual Reality Headsets Coming Soon

We tried virtual reality for the first time last year and needless to say, we can’t get over just how amazing the whole experience was. We picked up an Oculus for a family Christmas present and it wasn’t cheap. The question is, should we buy an HTC Vive for personal use, one of the Chinese knock-offs, or […]

Is HTC Corp Becoming a Virtual Reality Stock?

This past Christmas, we splashed out on an Oculus virtual reality headset for the fam and when we finally got to experience virtual reality, it was seriously mind blowing.

Lumus Augmented Reality Uses F-16 Display Technology

In April this year, we wrote about how augmented reality (AR) may be one of the biggest investment opportunities ever. In the not-so-distant future, an augmented reality device could make you wonder why we ever peered through the small windows of televisions, or how we ever learned anything without using AR.
