 VR / AR: Oculus Rift Kickstarter: Make a Pledge - Change Gaming Forever...
I'm excited to be a part of this Kickstarter! I made my pledge to get a dev kit; I'm not sure yet what I'm going to do with it, but I might just have to haul out a bunch of my old VR gear and other junk, and take a crack at it once it arrives. Actually, I'll probably do that before it arrives. I had planned on integrating my VR gear into my UGV project, for a telepresence capability. There's also the possibility of pulling out some old Python OpenGL code I have and playing with that, too. Who knows! I am just glad that I could contribute to this project. I encourage you to do so as well!

 VR / AR: Pioneering Research Papers in 3D Virtual Environments
For a recent posting I wrote to a fellow member on the Arduino forums, I spent an hour or more tracking down a few historical papers on the technology of Virtual/Augmented Reality. My interest in these papers was mainly that of an amateur historical archivist; I had an idea that they existed, but in the past I wasn't able to successfully locate them. Either I became better at searching, or Google expanded its index; I greatly suspect the latter, actually...
