    I'm a huge fan of Ready Player One. Here's our podcast episode on Ready Player One:


    If you want to know how this marvel works, just watch the next video... it explains Everything you want to know. I chose to break this up into two videos because it was so cool.

    I asked HaptX for a blurb to explain their company. This is what they came up with:

    HaptX is a multidisciplinary team of engineers based in San Luis Obispo, CA and Seattle, WA that builds advanced haptic technology. Their first product, HaptX Gloves, brings touch feedback to VR with unprecedented realism, enabling a new category of industrial training simulations. Founded by Jake Rubin and Dr. Bob Crockett in 2012, HaptX won’t stop until you can’t tell what’s real from what’s virtual. Learn more at haptx.com.

    If you're interested in working for them, here's a link:

            You didn't think vr was gonna catch on? Was this your first time in a headset? I'd NEVER play no mans sky without vr, but being inside the game makes it a whole new experience. Vr is gonna be big, it already is. But it's gonna get bigger. ;) unless of course war sets us back to the stine ages

                        Oh wow.. there's a glove like this that actually works? And the movement pad from an earlier video...
                        I grew up almost expecting this to be part of our lifetime, and it's actually becoming a reality?!? That's crazy! Technology advances so fast. Every idea can be the spark for even more great ideas, even in seemingly unrelated fields.

                                Force feedback has been in Joysticks for ages so that's old technology. Also look up the nintendo power glove which is a Very very early version of that glove.

There are so many different uses not just video games. You can train students to perform surgery on virtual bodies for one and yeah its not the same as the real thing but it would be a great starting point for doctors in training.
