Desktop Thursdays: A Bad Case Of The Future-Gaze

a-bad-case-of-the-future-gaze

Hey! Desktop Thursdays! Where I show you my goddamn worlds — populated by goddamn madness, beauty, reluctance, pensiveness, and really just a panoply of garbage!

Yeah yeah yeah yeah, I skipped last week. Sue me! I have a very good attorney, and though he specializes in Bird Law, I think he can probably do me right.

Yeah yeah yeah yeah, I’m over-caffeinated and ready. Oh, so ready. To rock! Here are views from across my existence the past two weeks. My worlds done tangible, done intangible, done textual. All of them, for your pleasure. I hope. Oh, I hope. You’ll share your own world(s) in the comments section!

Desktop Thursday: this is the future we gave ourselves

stairwaytohell

It’s Thursday, folks. This is my life again, folks. Hence Desktop Thursdays, folks. I’m sitting on the lubed tip of the weekend, just waiting to really crank down on it in a day and some change. Grind-up on it, grind-up as it infiltrates and inseminates my soul with pseudo-relaxation and caloric madness. But! But for now, it is merely Thursday.

So here is a window into my tangible existence. I hope you’ll share your own glimpses in the comments section.

PlayStation VR Bundle will run $500, pre-orders next Tuesday

PlayStation VR.

The PlayStation VR bundle is going to run $500, but it’s actually a good goddamn deal. Good enough to get me to adopt a technology I don’t really want, and quietly fear? No. But for anyone looking to get into the game, it seems well-priced as fuck.

The HTC ‘Vive’ VR headset to cost $799, $200 more than ‘Oculus Rift’

Expensive.

Man, count me the fuck out of the VR game. At least for a bit, until the headsets drop in price. That’s, that’s fair, right?

Steven Spielberg working on a project that is *only* for virtual reality

Steven Spielberg.

I suppose this is it, folks. The big virtual reality push. In a couple of years, we’re all going to be looking back at this moment. Wondering how anyone really thought it was going to take off. Or, ideally. We’ll be looking back at this moment as the catalyst for the technological progression that ended with me wearing a headset. Covered in teledildonic devices. Using my haptic gloves to stroke a furry with a priapism half a world a way.

I truthfully wouldn’t be surprised by either of these developments. But I’m hoping for the latter.

‘Oculus Rift’ costs $600, will begin shipping March 28

Oculus-Rift. (1)

Phew! I was worried I was going to impulse buy an Oculus Rift. Would have really cheesed off my wife, and probably not been used very much. Well! The price for the rig has been revealed to be $600, which makes it even too rich for my economically irresponsible ass (for the moment).

Apple bought the company who helped with ‘Star Wars’ motion capture

Star Wars.

Apple seems to be fancying themselves some augmented reality! I mean, they probably fancy something everything technological. But still. The company has bought Faceshift, which is a group that helped out on Star Wars‘ motion capture. Now it’s just a matter of time before they unleash iReality on the world.

‘Resident Evil’ team is focusing on virtual reality games. Oh.

boom

I don’t really sweat anything that the Resident Evil team does these days, after Resident Evil 6 and all. But I definitely give no fucks about their endeavors if they’re focusing on virtual reality games. That’s just me. How about you?

Oculus Rift going to cost more than $350 when it ships

It ain’t going to be cheap getting into the Metaverse, friends. But then again, who suspected it would be? The Rift is coming, it’s launching (soon), and it is pricing itself out of the range of the casual folk. Which is to be expected at first, right?

Sony’s Project Morpheus headset now called “PlayStation VR”

PlayStation VR.

Sony’s virtual reality headset has been rebranded. The name is a controversial one, one barely tethered to the PlayStation brand. It’s called “PlayStation VR.” Ha! Get it? Irony! Whatever.
