This looks like fun

Looks like a great Game! It’s called Mindshow – it’s a VR game that’s multiplayer and recordable, so you can share the experience.

Those are both things that are currently not really the case in VR – most are only you in the world, and not shareable. So this is a leap forward. Definitely more fun as a game if you can play against someone in the same world!

Now it’s just waiting for 1) a way to “feel” interaction (pressure suits anyone?) and 2) move without 3) throwing up. Don’t worry, there are lots of companies working on solving all three of these things. Pretty soon we’ll never have to actually be in reality again.


Vanishing tattoos

Temporary tattoo ink that gives you real tattoos for a year. How does that sound?

I don’t have any tattoos! Not a huge fan, largely because of the permanence issue; how can you design something that’ll be part of you forever? – too much angst for this artist. But this might change my mind: tattoos that fade after a year. The R&D is around ink that has particles small enough for your body to slowly absorb the…now THAT would be fun to play with. Coming to market in 2017.
