LUCI To Showcase immers “Immersion-on-Demand” VR With 3,000+ PPI At CES

Up to this point, we have accepted that virtual reality equals to a block of gadget slapped across our eyes, but really, that need not be the case, not if LUCI can help it. Introducing the LUCI immers Immersion-on-Demand VR Headset. OK. Maybe it does not look like one (a headset). It is more like glasses. In fact, LUCI did not specifically said that it is a headset, neither did it say it is a pair of goggles or glasses; it is just Immersion-on-Demand. That is. In a way, a weighty headset makes you remember that you are not as immersive as it should, but with the LUCI immers it is lightweight enough (that’s mere 185g, btw) to make you forget that you have a gadget across your eyes.

FOMOcamera: Life-logging Has Never Been This Discreet And Customizable!

The life-logging camera fad is over. It didn’t last long, did it? But why? My best guess is, having a camera stuck on you isn’t half as fun, plus it probably make folks you come across uncomfortable knowing that you may be filming them. The solution? FOMOcamera. Billed as the most wearable and customizable camera, FOMOcamera is basically a badge camera. In other words, it is a camera incognito as a badge in whatever design you fancy. Perfect for ladies for capturing men in the act of leering at their breasts instead of their eyes when conversing with them. Damn. I’d better stay away from ladies wearing a badge like this for I may be caught in the act. Sorry, can’t help it. Most men are hardwired to detect beauty and I am not going to pretend I am an exception. Continue reading FOMOcamera: Life-logging Has Never Been This Discreet And Customizable!

However, a new kind of motorcycle helmet, called CrossHelmet X1, aims to change that. Continue reading CrossHelmet Heightened Your Senses With 360 Vision And Sound Control
