Here is the most pertinent news when it comes to virtual reality and augmented reality. So strap on your headset because here we go.
WearX Augmented Reality System Launches on Indiegogo on November 16 at 8:30 am
The WearX Team, an augmented reality start-up out of San Francisco, is about to launch “WearPlay,” which is being touted as “the world’s first ‘Real-Life’ AR gaming system,” and will be available for under $200.
The company describes the system as, “Like playing Nintendo’s Wii in the real world.”
The system utilizes wearable sensors, Bluetooth technology, and a headset that uses a player’s smartphone into an interactive augmented reality engine.
Further, WearPlay uses WearX’s innovative Interactive Augmented Reality (IAR) technology through a motion sensing wristband tracking rotation, motion and trajectory of the wrist and body movements.
For example, if you are walking, you can throw fireballs by moving your arm and you can jump to actually jump and crush enemies (just like Mario).
WearPlay communicates a players movement with a smartphone in a headset allowing them to interact with the game characters while freely viewing and moving around in the real world.
WearPlay will come with a suite of games and is compatible with iOS and Android phones.The first 3 games WearX is offering are a first person platform AR game (think Super Mario), a real time 2 player AR fighting game (think Street Fighter), and an interactive puzzle AR game.
If you are interested in being one of the first 200 people to have this system, head over to Indiegogo starting tomorrow and pick up the WearPlay system for just $125. The WearPlay system is estimated to ship in April 2017. I for one plan to secure mine tomorrow.
I am rather excited to see what the augmented reality bring to the VR porn industry. Just image watching you favorite porn stars perform on your own couch, bed, desk, Ect.

Redditor Converts Bundle of Early Oculus DK1 Demos for CV1
Today, Redditor /u/KevinLongtime, released and made available for download the following early Oculus demos for the CV1:
The Redditor reported that the early demos work “great on the latest CV1 runtime,” and that Oculus’ Asynchronous Spacewarp feature appears to work with the demos. It should be noted that there are no extra steps to run the demos, with the exception of some tweaks to get the audio to play through the Oculus Rift headphones.
Below is /u/KevinLongtime’s guide to enable audio for the demos:
“To get audio through the rift headphones for these old converted demos that weren’t meant to be on CV1: right click your volume icon > click playback devices > right click ‘headphones: rift audio’ and then ‘set as default device.’ When you are done playing set your computer speakers back to the default computer speaker device unless you want everything from your computer coming out the rift headphones.”
The early demos can be downloaded here.
Hopefully these early Oculus VR Gems will hold over Rift users until the Touch system releases.
