Google Glass

Google glass is a type of wearable technology with a optical head display. It was developed by Google with the mission of producing a computer that will be very popular. Google glass displays info in a smartphone-like but hands-free format. Wearers can communicate with the internet using voice commands in every language.

In early 2013, interested potential Glass users were invited to use a Twitter message, with hashtag #IfIHadGlass to qualify as an early user of the product. On May 13, 2014, Google announced a move to a “more open beta”, via it’s Google+ page. But the date of release for “general” users is still unknown.

What can we do with it? Cool features of Google Glass: Just say the word and Google Glass will take a picture or record a video. Google Glass will show you text messages as well as emails you recieve and allow you to reply to them via voice commands. You simply need to ask a question and the device will pull the answer from the internet.

Google Glass is important because if it suceeds, it could be the next IPhone. But of course, it’s much much smaller!

Gotta Have Gadgets: Oculus Rift

Oculus Rift

By Tommy 

Have you ever heard of a wearing device that can make you feel like you are in a virtual reality world? Well, the Oculus Rift is a gadget that you wear as a headphone that covers your eyes to make you feel like you are in the game.

The Oculus Rift was invented by Palmer Luckey in his garage. When he was 21 years old he wanted a gadget that can make you feel like you are in a virtual reality world, but he never found it. There was none so he invented the Oculus rift. He also found the company Oculus VR. The Oculus Rift is 350 US$ which is about 10500 NTD.

The Oculus Rift supports some games like Team Fortress 2, Hawken, Museum of the Microstar… There are other games like Left 4 dead, Skyrim, Portal 2, Half-Life 2, and Bioshock. There are also games like Star Citizen, Montas, FRACT, Dream… that are getting developed.

In August 2012, Palmer Lucky invented the Oculus Rift’s “dev kit” version of the Oculus Rift and it was a big hit.  In March 2014, Oculus VR announced the DevKit 2, which was a developed version of the original version. Oculus announced they would make the consumer version which would come out in 2015.

Normal videogame consoles will only have a range up to 40 degrees, but the Oculus Rift’s range is up to 110 degrees, so it will let the player feel like they is in the game. Also, the Oculus Rift has 1080 pixels, so the graphics is really good. However, when we use the Oculus Rift, it is easy to get motion sickness or a headache.
