The tech consortium NYC MediaLab just released an interesting report on the current state of Virtual Reality. It looks at some of the tech, a timeline of recent events and discussion on business opportunities.
In this article I'll summarize some of the tech and experiential findings, and I'll dig in a little on some of the fascinating developments in 3D video.
One way or another, the global climate deal signed December 2015 in Paris is historic. But in what way, and where does it leave us now?
Perhaps the best one-sentence summary comes from environmental leader Bill McKibben, who said the deal "didn't save the planet, but it may have saved the chance of saving the planet."

The manager allows you to deal with chains of Audio Units and sets of presets with your keyboard at runtime, and to design new chains with just a few lines of code. You can show and hide the control panel above by hitting 'v'.
Our hack lab is a free space for artists, hackers and innovators. We meet weekly in Flatiron district and share our projects and interests. It's a great place to meet creative people, explore ideas and learn.
And now we have a new website - which you can check out at hardwarehacklab.io.
