UK leader travels to Brussels seeking Brexit breakthrough

BRUSSELS — British Prime Minister Theresa May is travelling to Brussels in a new attempt to reopen talks with the European Union on the Brexit divorce agreement and will meet with European Council President Donald Tusk and Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.With the planned departure date of March 29 closing in, May is expected to be stonewalled by the EU officials when it comes to reopening the legal withdrawal agreement which was already endorsed in November before the U.K. Parliament overwhelmingly rejected it.With the gap between both sides already yawning, Tusk acerbated the frosty climate on Wednesday by wondering aloud what “special place in hell” might be reserved for those who had no idea of how to deliver Brexit.The Associated Press

European leaders at UN Assembly focus on crises in Ukraine and Middle

Borut Pahor, President of the Republic of Slovenia, addresses the general debate of the sixty-ninth session of the General Assembly. UN Photo/Amanda VoisardHe noted that the existing architecture of the Organization, and above all the Security Council, is “failing it its fundamental role.” The deadlock in the Security Council is used as an excuse to resolve conflicts through force and without a UN mandate. “If this trend continues, it may lead to the breakdown of the contemporary political and security architecture,” Mr. Pahor declared, noting that given the upcoming 70th anniversary of the UN, and the global terrorist threat emerging in the broader Middle East and North Africa, such reform is urgently needed now.President Gjorge Ivanov of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) said the biggest casualties of the Ukraine crisis are the innocent citizens and the material losses. “The Republic of Macedonia supports all the efforts aimed at restoring peace and stability in this country,” he said. “I am convinced that through dialogue, with political and diplomatic means, Ukraine will be able to deal with the challenges.” Xavier Bettel, Prime Minister of Luxembourg, addresses the General Assembly. UN Photo/Amanda VoisardHe also called for a “bold and ambitious” global agenda for sustainable development after 2015, binding commitments to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to address climate change, an end to the Syrian civil war with its toll of some 200,000 dead and indiscriminate attacks against civilian populations, schools and hospitals, and firm action against war crimes and crimes against humanity by terrorist groups, first among them the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).Maltese Prime Minister Joseph Muscat also called for UN action to end the “ghastly war” in Syria. “I call on the Security Council to assume its responsibilities under the Charter and to act urgently and decisively to bring an end to the bloodshed,” he declared. Prime Minister Irakli Garibashvili of Georgia addresses the General Assembly. UN Photo/Loey Felipe “The ongoing developments in Ukraine tear at our hearts. We strongly support Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty,” he said. “We hope that the recent peace treaties will put an end to the military operations once and for all, and mark the beginning of an irreversible peace-making process.”He called on Russia to fulfil its obligations under the 2008 international ceasefire that ended a conflict in Georgia and join in the search for peace, prosperity, and reconciliation.Fighting broke out in August 2008 between Georgian forces and South Ossetian and Abkhaz separatists and their Russian allies. South Ossetia and Abkhazia each subsequently declared their independence from Georgia, and those declarations have been recognized by Russia and several other countries.“Let me be clear, Georgia will never sacrifice its territorial integrity and sovereignty,” Mr. Gafibashvili declared. “However, we will continue to look for pathways to reconciliation with our brothers and sisters in Abkhazia and South Ossetia. We Georgians want a good relationship with Russia, but not at the expense of our sovereignty and independence, which we fought so hard to achieve.”Also addressing the Assembly, Elio Di Rupo, Prime Minister of Belgium began his statement reading the names of four people who had been savagely killed “only because they were visiting a Jewish museum of Brussels.” He was not forgetting the other people that had been killed by such violence and had read out those names only to spotlight the terrible impact of such horrific acts that are occurring in Syria, Iraq and elsewhere. Those and others that had been killed in similar ways had been victims of “criminals of terror.” Tomislav Nikolic, President of the Republic of Serbia, addresses the General Assembly. UN Photo/Kim Haughton Addressing the General Assembly, Tomislav Nikolic, said Serbia was “deeply shattered and worried” over the events in Ukraine which preclude residents there from living in peace and tranquility. Mr. Nikolic underscored that Serbia respects the territorial integrity of Ukraine, unlike some Member States that “denied this right to Serbia by recognizing and promoting the independence of a part of the territory of Serbia – Kosovo and Metohija.”Achieving a sustainable political solution for the question of Kosovo and Metohija is Serbia’s top national priority, the President said. “For Serbia, the only acceptable, fair and just solution is to reject secessionism and preserve the territorial integrity of all countries,” he stressed, adding that he supports a political solution that includes the interests of the Serbians, Albanians and other populations. Among other topics raised in his address, Mr. Nikolic signaled out climate change, questions of global security and deadly infectious diseases as the three most pressing global challenges before the UN Assembly.Georgian Prime Minister Iraldi Gafibashvili pledged to do “everything we can to help our friends in Ukraine” by providing humanitarian aid, political support and technical help such as sending doctors and medicine. “It is our duty to support peace, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine. The threat arising to Ukraine must be urgently tackled,” she told leaders from the world body’s 193 members, noting that 100 States supported Ukraine in the General Assembly and condemned Russia’s occupation of Crimea, a vote that shows “we are still protecting the core values.” She called on the UN together with North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the European Union, other regional organisations and their member states to “fulfil their duty” and do everything possible to stop armed conflicts, redrawing the borders of sovereign states and creating one frozen conflict after another.Ms. Grybauskaitÿ called on Member States to adhere to core UN values, whether in dealing with Ukraine or terrorism in the Middle East. “Our common task as a group of nations is to maintain undivided security – we have to put all our efforts to stop ISIS (The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) and al-Qaeda, to keep peace and security in Middle East, but the same efforts should be directed to manage the geopolitical challenges in Eastern Europe,” she said.“In avoidance of an even grimmer future, I invite you to stop deception, lies, manipulation and ignorance from entering our territories and violating our values. We have to go back to the core principle of the United Nations of keeping peace throughout the world.”Prime Minister Xavier Bettel of Luxembourg noted that the crisis in Ukraine has turned step by step into a conflict. “This conflict unfortunately shows that the times when we thought peace on the European continent had become self-evident are over,” he said. “This conflict has already cost the lives of more than 3,000 people. It must end and it must end now. Dialogue and diplomacy are of the essence.” President Gjorge Ivanov of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia addresses the General Assembly. UN Photo/Kim Haughton Touching on terrorism, religious extremism and other global problems, he said the world order is in latent crisis. “The processes of global interdependence and sub-national fragmentation transform all our previous perceptions of the world,” he declared.“As we speak, millions of faithful believers around the world feel the pain caused by the narrow-minded individuals and groups, imbued with religious fundamentalism. As we speak, a systematic destruction of individuals and communities is happening. As we speak, hundreds of thousands are persecuted. Their homes have been devastated, their temples destroyed, their past is erased and their future is in question.” Drawing a link between the situation in Ukraine and the situation of Kosovo and Metohija, the Serbian President today reiterated his country’s solidarity with “our Slav brothers” to help find a peaceful solution to the crisis. Prime Minister Elio di Rupo of Belgium addresses the General Assembly. UN Photo/Loey Felipe Such acts should “speak to each and every one of us”, he said, underscoring that the recent resolution adopted by the Security Council on foreign fighters had been a very important step in rallying coordinated action to turn back terrorist organizations. Belgium, he continued, would like to step up efforts to share information that would disrupt the recruitment and training of jihadists that wanted to move between countries and sow terror. The fight against terrorism was a war between those who valued life and those who did not; those who respected rights and freedoms and those who did not. “Yet, I cannot help but think that the human catastrophes we are witnessing are a result of human failure,” he said, recalling the folly of so called “preventive wars”, which Belgium had not joined or supported. But as things stood today, turning back the current tide of terrorism would require force. But, the Prime Minister said, it would also require dialogue, education and a closer examination of the impact and residual effects of such actions. Joseph Muscat, Prime Minister of Malta, addresses the General Assembly. UN Photo/Amanda VoisardHe likewise called for “meaningful negotiations” to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. “Too many innocent civilians have died; too many children have been buried,” he noted. “We need statesmanship from the politicians on both sides.”At the same time he demanded that more attention be paid to the plight of illegal immigrants in the Mediterranean. “Again I call on the international community to help us stop the great human tragedies that come with risky crossings,” he said, noting that desperate men, women and children are risking their lives crossing conflict ridden zones and hostile deserts and taking to the seas without realizing the dangers awaiting them. Slovenian President Borut Pahor warned that if the UN does not reform the Security Council and its other bodies, it risks being side-lined. “It is our historical duty to modernize the United Nations,” he said. read more

Season on the line Buckeyes enter final regular season series needing victories

The Ohio State baseball team entered this season expecting to win another Big Ten title.But with just three regular-season games remaining, the defending champions are fifth in the conference standings.Instead of trying to close out another season atop the conference, the Buckeyes are fighting for their postseason lives. “It’s definitely a bit of a change of pace for us,” senior Ryan Dew said. “I think we need to take two of three this weekend to be sure to get into the tournament.”The Big Ten Tournament accepts only the top six teams from the conference. The Buckeyes are on the fringe as they are in a four-way tie for fifth place. Consequently, the Buckeyes need to win this weekend’s series in order to ensure themselves a spot in the tournament.However, that will be no easy feat as the Buckeyes play host to first-place Minnesota, and the Buckeyes have lost their last four Big Ten series. “This team has had a black cloud over it and I don’t know how to get out from under it,” coach Bob Todd said. He said all the breaks seem to be going the opponent’s way this season and that’s just the game of baseball.One break that may go the Buckeyes’ way this weekend is the return of pitcher Alex Wimmers. The All-American ace has been sidelined the past four weeks with a hamstring injury, but might be ready to take the mound this weekend.“We’ve got Dean (Wolosiansky) and (Drew) Rucinski pitching lights out. So if we get Wimmers back like he always is we can take three games this weekend,” senior Cory Kovanda said. Although Todd was vague when addressing whether Wimmers would be ready to go this weekend, players hinted that he could be back. Wimmers’ return would serve as a huge boost as he is 9-0 on the season and injects confidence into his teammates whenever he toes the rubber. “Obviously he’s a huge talent,” Dew said. “Every time he takes the mound we know we are going to win.”Win is exactly what the Buckeyes must do if they wish to continue their season. And even with their recent struggles, the team is still confident in its ability to take this weekend’s series. “We’re a very close team and we’re confident in ourselves,” Dew said. “When we play a complete game, most of the time we win. I know we can do it and the team is confident we can.”Dew and Kovanda, two of eight seniors on this year’s team, expressed their desire to keep playing in their final season at OSU. They also want to send Todd, their storied head coach, off with another Big Ten championship.Earlier this year, Todd announced that he would be retiring at the end of the season. In his 23-year tenure at OSU, the Buckeyes have missed the Big Ten tournament only once. “I’ve only missed it once in my life,” Todd said. “For this team, that has so much potential and so many high expectations, which I thought were justified — For us to be in this position is very uncharacteristical.”The Buckeyes open the three-game series against the Golden Gophers Thursday at 7 p.m. at Bill Davis Stadium. read more

Urban Meyer talks recruiting future of college football

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer announced the post-spring practice two-deep depth chart, but also gave his input on topics concerning the Buckeyes and the current state of the Bowl Championship Series. Depth Chart OSU players were well aware that their playing time would be determined by what they accomplished during spring ball and the results of the players’ work was made public Wednesday. “We made a big emphasis with our players aboutspring practice is not just fundamentals, development and skill development, it’s about earning a spot on the team,” Meyer said. “Our focus in August is not developing a depth chart, it is trying to go win a game.” Meyer spoke about both sides of the ball, particularly the offensive line. Junior center Corey Linsley was the first topic of interest. Linsley, a redshirt junior, served as back-up to former OSU center Michael Brewster in his sophomore campaign. Meyer said Linsley has been made into one of the most important players on the offense behind sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller. “(Linsley) was a journeyman player,” Meyer said. “He was a pleasant surprise. He has the potential to be a very good player. His commitment to excellence right now is real strong.” The right tackle position features a dogfight between senior Reid Fragel and freshman Taylor Decker. Meyer said without question that the offensive line was made functional with the addition of Decker. “I thought our (offensive line) coach (Ed) Warinner did a very good job with them in what some would say a somewhat complicated offense,” Meyer said. “Our offensive line was the most improved position on the team.” Recruiting Meyer did not give specific details regarding an incident involving Charles Eric Waugh, a Kentucky sex offender who came in contact with student-athletes and recruits in-person and on social media. Some believe that Waugh’s contact with players and recruits might have resulted in the de-commitment of four-star linebacker recruit and Wyomissing, Pa., native, Alex Anzalone. “The first thing you think about is the safety of your players,” Meyer said. “There are a million different stories in recruiting, but the ones you have no control over are the most bothersome.” Bowl Championship Series The BCS could be on the brink of adapting to a four-team playoff system to determine a national champion, with possible changes to come no earlier than 2014. As of Wednesday, Big Ten commissioner and Big Ten athletic directors are on board with the four-team playoff system. Meyer said the four-team playoff will produce a tremendous workload for the coaching staff and players of the teams selected. “I can’t even fathom that you are trying to get ready for a national championship in two days,” Meyer said. “‘Cause that’s what you got.” Should the change come to fruition and the Buckeyes be in the running for a future NCAA Division I playoff, Meyer explained how a team might ready itself for the task. “You will probably prepare for three teams,” Meyer said. “We’re going to prepare in case we have to play any of those three times, and that will be exhausting.” Meyer said he believes the ideal setup is what has happened over the last decade of football, but understands why the change is being made. “I was not one of the screamers and yellers saying it was broken before,” Meyer said. read more

Robot uses balloon full of coffee grounds to pick up anything

first_imgThe field of robotics is advancing every year and we already have robots that can walk like humans, react like humans, or even look like humans. One area that has remained difficult to master is the act of gripping objects and picking them up. The problem is two-fold. A robot needs to be able to grip without breaking the object and have the dexterity to cope with multiple shapes, weights, and surface types.Researchers believe they have now cracked the problem by replacing the typical grab or robotic finger arrangement with a latex balloon filled with ground coffee.It sounds unbelievable, but the researchers found a way to make the loose coffee grounds in the balloon have both a rigid and soft state. The coffee grounds can roll around and envelop an object when in a soft state, but then applying a vacuum inside the balloon makes them go rigid. Any object surrounded by the grounds in the balloon is then caught and can be picked up. Remove the vacuum and the grounds become loose again.As the tests in the video show, the grabber, known as a universal jamming gripper, can pick up a multitude of different items making it very useful as a manufacturing tool as well as many other fields.The robot has been developed at Cornell University, the University of Chicago, and with help from iRobot and funding from DARPA.Read more at IEEE SpectrumMatthew’s OpinionThe performance of the gripper even surprised the researchers as they never thought it would be able to grip a penny, but it did. The strength of the grip is also impressive and even 15lbs of weight isn’t an issue. On the other hand it’s sensitive enough not to break an egg.The one remaining issue seems to be speed of operation. You’ll notice in the video that certain demonstrations were sped up. For this to be a viable industrial robot then it needs to get quicker, but surely that’s just a case of applying the vacuum state more quickly.What this does show is that robots may have to go in different directions to achieve the same interactions as humans in some respects. Clearly a robot hand isn’t as good as a balloon gripper. That may change one day, but for now this is the best gripping robot I’ve ever seen.last_img read more

Ouya to get yearly hardware refresh retain 99 price

first_imgAfter breaking a funding record on Kickstarter last year the team behind the $99 Ouya console has been hard at work getting the tiny games console manufactured and shipped to backers. Come June, over 68,000 of them should be in the hands of Kickstarters, and a number of retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, Gamestop, and Target, will be more than happy to sell you one.That’s not the end of the Ouya, though. Julie Uhrman, Ouya founder and CEO, is already looking to the future and has made a bold promise: every year we will see the hardware used inside the Ouya refreshed in order to take advantage of the latest components. At the same time, the $99 price point will be kept.The first Ouya uses a Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, but with a yearly refresh that could be replaced with a Tegra 4 twelve months after launch. Depending on prices, even the Tegra 4 may be overlooked for an even more powerful processor by then.As the Ouya has a board that just slides out of the case, it seems likely an upgrade program will also be put in place. Existing owners could save a bit of money and just purchase the new board for their existing case rather than a whole new unit, but that’s yet to be confirmed.Yearly updates is certainly a different approach to a gaming platform, but it’s one that will remove uncertainty for developers at least. If popular, the Ouya will be an ever-present platform, that regularly supports the latest hardware while continuing to support all games that have gone before.As for the games and their promotion, Ouya is also taking a different approach. The app store will be curated not by sales, but through engagement. So while Angry Birds might sell millions, if a less popular game is played more regularly by its gamer base, it will appear higher in the charts on Ouya and receive more promotion. By doing this, the Ouya team will highlight games people enjoy above those that are marketed heavily and get picked up by everyone.last_img read more

Note within every statement about how talented th

first_imgNote, within every statement about how talented the roster is or how this could potentially be a championship season is talk about how none of it will matter if they do not work hard and do their jobs.While the Cardinals seem to be as loaded as any team in the NFL, Super Bowls are not won on paper and they certainly are not claimed in September.Over the past couple of seasons, as the Cardinals have seen their win total climb from 10 to 11 and then last year’s 13, many times later in the year there was talk about not letting success get to their head. Every question brought a similar answer, about how they must respect the process because nothing is guaranteed.The Cardinals backed up that talk with their play, so in a way, it might be a bit disrespectful to wonder if their confidence could turn out to be a detriment. Any sign that confidence could be a detriment is, up to this point, imaginary.If history has taught us anything about this group of players, it is that laurels are not something they rest on. Also, any sense of bravado likely stems from the head coach, who understands why his team can handle the preseason prognostications.“You had pretty good success if you’ve been here for three years and you know what kind of battle it’s going to be,” Arians said of why his players are able to embrace the big-time talk. “I don’t think we all know what we have, like Coach (Bill) Belichick said the other day, you don’t know really what you have until October. We know we’ve got a lot of guys back, but every year is different. Top Stories “And we want high expectations every year.”In Arizona, expectations have never been higher.Arians said he tells his team there is no pressure going into this season, instead breaking things down to one game, one-practice seasons.“We set a goal a long time ago, then you quit talking about it, and you just go to work every day.”The goal is obvious, and the path to get there is more understood now more than ever. Of the 53 players on the roster, just 11 were not with the organization last season. The vast majority of the roster was on hand when the team made its run to the NFC title game, and were on hand to feel the sting of losing with a spot in the Super Bowl on the line.Returning a team that was close should provide a level of confidence that yes, the Cardinals can get back to that level. Yet, having fallen short should also mean the team is not short on motivation to not only reach that point again, but go one step further.“We know we can, but we know what it takes to get there,” running back Chris Johnson said. “We know we’re not a Super Bowl lock; we know we just can’t go out there on Sundays and like we’re going to get the victory and roll over people. We know the work we put in, we know how hard we work and we know what we’ve got to do every Sunday.” Comments   Share   The concept is not exactly outlandish, as the Cardinals won 13 regular season games and reached the NFC Championship Game last season and returned basically the same roster, maybe even with improvements. What’s strange, however, is how receptive the players and coaches have been of the title talk.“It’s great, because people are right; we are pretty good,” quarterback Carson Palmer said. “Now we’ve got to go out and play it and prove it and back that up. But to be on a team that you know has a shot, that people are putting a circle around you on their schedule and a bull’s-eye on you — everybody in our division is just because we won it last year. So, it’s a good thing.”If you are looking for modesty, this probably is not your team.“You earned the right to be considered the best; it’s just a testament to what we’ve done the last three years,” defensive lineman Calais Campbell said. “The biggest thing is, though, is you can’t let it slow you down. You can’t let it make you relax. You have to continue to go out there and do what got you to this point.“And that’s work. We put work in every day. We come out to this football field and we put time in. On the field, we go hard. And then we get in the classroom and we study hard. That’s what [makes] us special.” Miscellany– The Cardinals enter the game 9-1 in home openers at University of Phoenix Stadium.

HeadsetVirtual RealityOculus’ New Virtual Reality Headset May Finally Make You Want a Virtual Reality HeadsetIf he had been one of those kids obsessed with Matchbox cars we might have a flying car by now But he was into video games and 1990s-era science fiction so this year we will have virtual reality As an 18-year-old who took apart smartphones and fixed them for cash he figured out that the solutions to the problems virtual-reality engineers weren’t able to solve were right inside his phone Now 22 Luckey sold his company Oculus VR to Facebook last year for $23 billion allowing it to grow to more than 350 employees in offices in Silicon Valley Seattle Dallas and Austin as well as in South Korea and Japan That’s because as fantastical as Luckey’s dreams were–I want to feel like I’m really running down halls shooting bad guys–Mark Zuckerberg and the rest of the tech industry had a much bigger hope for the sensory-immersion goggles Luckey used to carry around in a yellow bucket in order to hold loose wires They had seen the Internet get disrupted by mobile and were wary of being blindsided by the next platform for accessing information–which they thought might be hiding in Luckey’s yellow bucket"We were thinking about how this will affect our friends who are into gaming" says Oculus CEO Brendan Iribe sitting in his company’s building on the Facebook campus in Menlo Park Calif "Mark is always thinking about How does this impact 1 billion people" Luckey who loved The Matrix and Neal Stephenson’s virtual-reality thriller Snow Crash understood Zuckerberg right away "Could you call a book the final platform Of course not It’s limited in the kind of stimulus it supplies" Luckey says "Virtual reality is the final platform" And while the first true virtual-reality machines won’t start coming out until Christmas a lot of people have already quit their jobs or funded projects in the belief that the final platform is hereVirtual reality has been promised for decades but in my conversations with the top developers in the field it quickly became clear that never before have so much money and talent bet on its imminent arrival Headsets will start going on sale this year and competition will increase dramatically through 2016 At first they’ll be bought by hardcore gamers and gadget geeks They’ll be expensive–as much as $1500 with all the accoutrements And just as with cell phones everyone else will mock the early adopters for mindlessly embracing unnecessary technology with no useful purpose At firstA good place to start that mocking would have been AT&T Park In April a group of virtual-reality entrepreneurs are wearing huge bright red plastic sunglasses walking on the field where the San Francisco Giants play Venture capitalist Mike Rothenberg 30 rented the stadium so the 360 guests he’s invited can see the 20 virtual-reality companies that his firm Rothenberg Ventures has funded They can also take batting practice drink cocktails pet adoptable dogs and build their own goody bagsFor each VR demo I put on a clunky pair of goggles most of which have a smartphone slipped into a slot in front of my eyes which does most of the work These machines are not as complex as what Luckey developed but they provide a cheap effective rendition The screen when it’s that close to your face fills your field of vision–the first frameless visual medium The sense of depth is far more realistic than 3-D with everything stretching out to infinity scaled perfectly And I can look all around whipping my head to see above below and behind me which gives me brief moments of what virtual-reality pioneers longingly call "presence"–when you really feel like you’re inside a fake environment It’s an amazing technical achievement I’m psyched I got to try it but it’s not something I’m going to choose over watching TV The graphics are clunky and I can see individual pixels so I’m pretty far from fooled into thinking I’m not inside a ballpark It’s like the coolest version of the 1970s View-Master toy I could imagineIt’s also close enough to The Matrix to excite all these people Xavier Palomer Ripoll has come from Spain to work for three months at Rothenberg Ventures’ VR accelerator He’s created a bunch of animated situations that allow therapists to use immersion therapy with clients who have anxiety disorders letting them

nausea disorientation motion sickness general discomfort headaches or other health issues when experiencing virtual reality" The final platform is not making a great first impressionLuckily I don’t barf The nausea caused by virtual reality is the inverse of car sickness: your eyes see motion but your middle ear feels nothing This challenge has largely been solved by faster screen-refresh rates–the final version of Oculus will allow only 20 milliseconds between a head turn and visual change; an eyeblink takes about 300 milliseconds VR companies are also shying away from putting viewers on virtual roller coasters and Formula One tracks But they are creating everything else In a speech in a packed auditorium Jens Christensen CEO of Jaunt which makes high-end VR cameras says building actual flying cars and jet packs is now irrelevant The only question he says is how soon we can "simulate our own personal Tomorrowlands"Two months after Facebook paid $2 billion for Oculus Google responded at its annual I/O conference in San Francisco’s Moscone Center by handing each of the audience members a piece of flat cardboard as they left the keynote presentation This they were told when folded up and paired with a smartphone was Google’s new virtual-reality player Most people thought it was a joke But with two cheap plastic magnifying lenses placed in a box that cradles your phone it can create a 3-D effect not unlike that of much more expensive equipment At the Googleplex Clay Bavor vice president of product management shows me the second generation of Google Cardboard

Cardboard Google doesn’t bother making money off Cardboard–the specs are free online and many companies sell them for $6 and up–but the company is making software for itYou can download an app made by Jaunt and get a good sense of what it’s like to be backstage at a Paul McCartney concert Google teamed up with GoPro to make a wheel of 16 cameras that shoots 360-degree video and created software that allows you to stitch the shots together into a video you can then upload to the new virtual-reality section of YouTube Through a program called Expeditions Google has already sent 100 classrooms a field trip in a box; teachers use Cardboards to lead kids through natural architectural and Martian wonders The company worked with partners like the Smithsonian and the American Museum of Natural History to create 3-D images not unlike those in the plastic viewfinders that were popular in the 1970s This comparison isn’t lost on Google which has a deal with Mattel to put out a version of Google Cardboard in a View-MasterOculus has also entered the mobile space since it isn’t planning to release its main product the Rift until 2016 ("If the iPhone were introduced in any quarter it would have been a hit I doubt they were saying ‘What’s important for the iPhone We have to hit Christmas’" says Luckey about letting his competition beat him to market) Oculus partnered with Samsung to build Gear VR a pair of goggles with motion detectors that you can slip a Galaxy Note 4 phone into The device is available at Best Buy for $200 and is lent to first-class passengers on QantasThree high-end virtual-reality products not made of cardboard are being put out by Oculus Sony and Valve The latter two companies have an advantage in that their gamer customers already own machines with powerful graphics capabilities Founded by former Microsoft developers Valve makes popular games and runs the Steam download store which sells about three-quarters of all PC gamesAs I walk into one of the rooms used for demonstrating the company’s Vive headset scheduled to be released this Christmas I see Steve Jurvetson one of the most powerful Silicon Valley venture capitalists walking out of the other one Valve gives several demonstrations a day "We won’t talk to people until they have a demo" says Ken Birdwell a longtime employee "If we talked to them before it would just be arguments about why these things wouldn’t work After they say ‘We have to hurry We have six months until this hits the consumer space’" When they agreed to show their technology to an employee of Taiwanese smartphone manufacturer HTC they were surprised when she turned out to be Cher Wang who runs the company After seeing it Wang asked if HTC could manufacture the product for Valve which it is now doingUnlike Google Cardboard or anything else you can buy right now the Vive requires you to hook it up to a computer fast enough for gaming And for you to be physically attached to that computer with a wire And to strap on a pouch And to put little laser sensors in the corners of the room In return you can get out of your chair and unvirtually walk around the virtual world you see through the Vive gogglesThis would seem dangerous But the headset alerts you when you’re near a wall It would also seem to require you to have a 16-by-12-ft (5 by 4 m) empty room in your house Jeep Barnett who has worked on the project from the beginning isn’t worried "Sell your dining-room table and eat over your sink" he says "If you have a pool table get rid of that Get a Murphy bed People are going to find
