Kids These Days!: Why an Understanding of Different Realities Affects More Than Just Millennials

October 17, 2016 |

Ugh, millennials. What with their “Playboxes” and “X-Stations.” They’re always on the “Snapbook” or “InstaFace” these days, and now they’re chasing “Pokeman” through my yard and trampling my azalea bushes! Now they’ve got these boxes on their face and keep raving about this “virtual reality” nonsense where they’re fighting dragons and saving princesses.

Are Spectacles the Event Horizon for Wearable Tech?

September 28, 2016 |
