Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
The focus should be on tracing the silhouette of shields and arrows with your “wand” to conjure them, not just shooting and teleporting around.
There’s a huge, brand new disconnect between how profoundly immersed you are in the world vs. having to refer to a HUD to know your health or that you’ve been hit.
It’s hard enough for an on-screen FPS to convey you’ve been hit, but it will never make sense in VR until you’re wearing a haptic vest.
Unlike most of the attendance I found Space Pirate Trainer mind-numbingly uninteresting. Shooters are a no-go for me — at least until headsets provide proper peripheral vision, if not forever.
C’est la première fois en… bien deux ans que je ne suis pas déçu par un nouveau gadget que j’étais impatient de prendre en main. (Merci pour rien, Apple.)
I had big plans for what I was gonna draw but was too happy just tracing ribbons of light in the air to focus on anything else.
However, Tilt Brush is the absolute best thing ever. It’s like painting with magic spells out of a wizard’s wand. A. Ma. Zing.
Interesting that the HTC Vive doesn’t force my lazy eye to work like GearVR did. I guess it’s that much more lifelike.
RT @Snowden: No matter the outcome, #Brexit polls demonstrate how quickly half of any population can be convinced to vote against itself. Quite a lesson.
“Oh putain, depuis quand j’ai les jambes aussi moches ? Et c’est quoi ce short, on dirait une jupe. Ah, non, c’est pas mon reflet.”
RT @Pinboard: Machine learning is like money laundering for bias
You’d think Xcode would spontaneously offer to do this when provisioning fails.
“Je vais aller prendre l’air pour profiter du beau temps.” Il fait pas vraiment beau et y’a pas d’air dehors.
Comme tous les six mois, refaire le tri des vêtements qui ne sont plus à ma taille.
C’est relou, l’adolescence.
Je cherche des écouteurs in-ear à 100 € qui fassent un aussi bon son que mon casque B&W à 400 €. Ca paraît raisonnable, non ?
After months of saying I’d never do public VR demos because of cooties, I spent yesterday afternoon strapping a multitude of GearVRs to my face ¯\(ツ)/¯
Actually should refrain from judgment, because 3D VR forces my lazy eye to work, so it wows me by just being much more 3D than real life.
Fact #1 from a GearVR demo today: the tracking on an S7 is a million times better than Cardboard on an iPhone 6. Properly impressive.
Les démos stéréoscopiques font immédiatement travailler mon oeil paresseux ; c’est très drôle mais il va me falloir des lentilles.
RT @MonsieurEureka: remember to always ¯\(ツ)/¯ at least once per day for your mental health
The new watchOS UI is designed around the fact that people use few apps. But the main reason people use few apps is how much they suck in the current OS, on the current device. So that’s not very future-proof.
La saison 2 d’Unreal se concentre sur tous les aspects les moins intéressants de la première, et ce n’est pas une grosse surprise.
Looking at screenshots of the new notifications, widgets, and the Music app — I guess this year’s endemic issue is low information density?
Like every three months I’m annoyed at how much Twitter has shaped my self-expression and decide to fall back on Tumblr for mid-length posts.
RT @siracusa: APFS: default on all devices in 2017 (no month specified). In-place, non-destructive conversion of HFS+ volumes.
RT @DDDrewDaniel: But this also turned into fantasies of violence directed towards the men I met there. The closet is a space of psychic splitting & conflict.
RT @DDDrewDaniel: When I was in the closet and frequenting public cruising areas as a teenager in KY, I was filled with violent rage against my self.
RT @patrickklepek: The continuing problem with Sony, however, is they announce games to have a killer E3, then the games get delayed over and over and over.
RT @jasonschreier: Someone told me recently that God of War 4 is heavily influenced by The Last of Us, but I didn’t think they meant it this literally
I want to believe that the rejection of gamepad-only apps cost the new Apple TV dearly in its first year.
What’s the point of Messages so aggressively playing catch-up with Facebook Messenger if they’re not gonna go cross-platform?
RT @reyner: Nothing has gotten louder applause at #WWDC2016 than tap-to-replace emoji.
RT @bzamayo: iOS 7: Super thin fonts.
iOS 10: Super thick fonts.
iOS 13: A reasonable font weight.
RT @drbarnard: Let’s just forget the past year and call this watchOS 1.0.
Exciting. And stressful. Gonna have to make a choice soon.
Godfuckingdammit I don’t want to be excited about the next Mass Effect but I can’t help it — heart in my mouth as soon as they started the (empty) reveal.
RT @ruinedpicnic: Humans pretend to be smart but we still look at the ceiling when we hear a noise upstairs like we’re suddenly gonna have x-ray vision
RT @jaredsinclair: 1/ Apps used to have similar interactions w/ aesthetic variety. Now they have the same flat aesthetic but wildly different interactions.
