Review: Facebook’s Oculus Quest 2 is outstanding

Facebook’s virtual reality dreams have been a headache for the company. At CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s prodding, the company has spent billions on Oculus and dealt with huge added complexities to their business, while encountering countless issues regarding the company’s founding team, a massive IP lawsuit, crippling supply chain issues and an impossible-to-satisfy user base. But for all the tears, that toil has given the tech world a weirdly poignant look at what’s possible when you attempt to ...

Oculus VR Founder on Recently Unveiled Oculus Rift S: I Can't Use it, and Neither Can You.

Palmer Luckey, founder of Oculus VR and designer of the Oculus Rift, shares his thoughts on the recently unveiled Oculus Rift S: Rift S is very cool! It takes concepts that have been around for years and puts them into a fully functional product for the first time. Sure, sure, I see people complaining about how Rift S is worse than CV1 concerning audio quality, display characteristics, and ergonomics -- some of the tradeoffs are real, some are imaginary, and people should really wait for it to c...

Narrowing the IPD of the Celestron Cometron 7x50 Binoculars

These binoculars are a great value, not the best, but at ~$35 they're not so expensive you get nervous about other people touching them. However, they don't fit faces with narrow set eyes; the InterPupillary Distance (IPD) doesn't get smaller than ~60mm. Fortunately, it's just a silly design decisio...By: Old JackContinue Reading » [Author: Old Jack]

Brazil’s Uirapuru 7.62x51mm General Purpose Machine Gun: A rare bird, indeed

The word Uirapuru is the name of both an actual Amazonian bird and a mythical creature. In the rain forest, the bird Uirapuru sings once a year when it builds its nest. Even then, only from five to ten minutes early in the morning. According to the legend, Uirapuru’s song is so beautiful that all other […] Read More … The post Brazil’s Uirapuru 7.62x51mm General Purpose Machine Gun: A rare bird, indeed appeared first on The Firearm Blog.

An eHealth Project on Invasive Pneumococcal Disease: Comprehensive Evaluation of a Promotional Campaign

Background: The recently launched Pneumo Rischio eHealth project, which consists of an app, a website, and social networking activity, is aimed at increasing public awareness of invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD). The launch of this project was prompted by the inadequate awareness of IPD among both laypeople and health care workers, the heavy socioeconomic burden of IPD, and the far from optimal vaccination coverage in Italy, despite the availability of safe and effective vaccines. Objective: T...

Anne Curzan at Lingua Franca writes about a phenomenon I’ve noticed but not really thought about: the distinction between the traditional use of hence meaning ‘as a result, for this reason’ as an introduction to full clauses (her example: “Hence, vaccines with enhanced serotype coverage … might be needed to prevent IPD in this age group in the near future”) and its modern use to introduce a noun phrase (“Hence the value of strengthening skills now”). Curzan says: It will probably come as no surp...

And of course, not cleaning phone screens can lead to serious clogged pores, as well as cheek and chin acne. But the light your phone emits can also affect your skin. Letting there be light can lead to letting there be hyperpigmentation in the form of melasma.Melasma — brown or gray patches on the skin — can be caused by sun exposure and hormones (from pregnancy or bir...

Oculus Rift’s set-up process makes it easy to jump into the world of VR

I received an Oculus Rift virtual reality headset today, and the set-up was quite easy. That’s a good omen as the age of VR kicks off with the launch today of the Oculus Rift on the Windows PC. It helped that I had an Oculus-ready PC, or a PC with a high-end 3D graphics chip from Nvidia. That meant that I could set the Rift up to work with my system out of the box. VR is a very demanding application when it comes to graphics, and so you have to have a computer that meets the minimum hardware spe...
