VR nauseating? here’s my tips not to

As one of the early adopters (& dev) of Virtual Reality (VR) technology – i really find it awesome and i can tell that its here in front of us. The only thing is… getting used to it, as nauseating happens when either the user and the VR gadget has issues.


So here are my tips:

1. When its your first time to use VR – read instructions first and don’t just wear it (like i did hehe as i was so excited). There maybe some calibration needed first in order to use it properly or get it fit on you such as focus-adjustment, lens adjustment near-far to the device, each lens distances must be the same with the distance of your eyes

2. Incase you are using the low end VR gadget – do not let your eyes focus much, let it freely find its focus. let it blur at first, your eyes are smart – it will find its focus/orientation.

3. Look in the center at all time – yes, the surroundings are looking great – move your head not your eyes.

4. Sit in a comfortable office chair – as it is rotating. so you dont have to work much on your neck – specially when its a VR game.

5. Do not do VR if your hungry (courtesy of sir Rene Canlas – a futuristic gizmo collector)

6. Get and play a VR device now – to be more familiar with it, as this is the next trend and yes later we maybe have no choice than to use it, as it will be the required device for communication, transportation, and work in the future.


Apps4laughs: an App i created for my kids

a4l_logoIts been a while (actually almost a year hehe) an idea came to me as i am working at home and my kids wanted to know what im working at, yah the Augmented Reality (AR) & Virtual Reality (VR) stuffs. My daughter Lei told me – “Papa, can i also do that?” the AR. “Yes u can” i say – and she says “Ok let me do it now”… Oppppss… i told her making one is quite way too complicated for her at the moment, but she really insist and i let her try – i feel bad, as she was disappointed as she wont be able to create one…. So, i told her that i will create an interface for her that she will be able to create one without anymore disappointment.

And so, its now ready – Apps4laughs – its an Augmented Reality Mobile App where my daughter can create her own Magic (yah AR thingy is like magic – now u see, now u dont – vice versa) . Yah, its as easy to make one by just a tap of buttons to add things to the interface such as Text, 3D objects, particles (like fire, sparkle,fireworks). Later will expand so that images and other things can be added.

An App exclusively for my kids? Nope – once its fully ready – we will share it to every one for FREE.
