    I'm a huge fan of Ready Player One. Here's our podcast episode on Ready Player One:


    If you want to know how this marvel works, just watch the next video... it explains Everything you want to know. I chose to break this up into two videos because it was so cool.

    I asked HaptX for a blurb to explain their company. This is what they came up with:

    HaptX is a multidisciplinary team of engineers based in San Luis Obispo, CA and Seattle, WA that builds advanced haptic technology. Their first product, HaptX Gloves, brings touch feedback to VR with unprecedented realism, enabling a new category of industrial training simulations. Founded by Jake Rubin and Dr. Bob Crockett in 2012, HaptX won’t stop until you can’t tell what’s real from what’s virtual. Learn more at haptx.com.

    If you're interested in working for them, here's a link:

                                                  Anyone who isn't an engineer will say that glove is bulky.
                                                  Engineers are mind blown at how small it is already

I'd NEVER play no mans sky without vr, but being inside the game makes it a whole new experience. Vr is gonna be big, it already is.
