I have come down from my very first virtual reality experience and it was amazing! Black Public Media (BPM) held a VR mixer last Tuesday and I volunteered to assist in the screening room. We used the Oculus Go and Samsung Gear VR headsets.
The Oculus, released a few months ago, is a standalone (un-tethered) headset and remote control that doesn’t require use of a connected smartphone. The VR content is downloadable directly from the headset. Current retail price is ~$200.

It’s been a while since I posted (more on that later), but I will be volunteering at a VR (virtual reality) mixer hosted by Black Public Media on Tuesday, July 17th between 5:30 and 8:30 pm at WeWork Harlem in NYC.
If you’ve never experienced VR before, the mixer provides 20-minute viewing slots using the Samsung Gear VR and Oculus Go headsets on a first-come, first-served basis. It costs $10 to attend (but only $5 if you purchase tickets in advance). I really hope to see you there!

I’m getting more and more into fantasy/sci-fi films. This one looks really good. Should I read the book? That way I can come back and tell you the book was better, lol.
