And Finally… Vol 23 No 13

On the 1st April Next Thing Co. announced that its PocketC.H.I.P mini computer, launched in 2009, is set to become one of 2016’s hottest pieces of technology, thanks to the low cost of making it VR-ready. With the simple addition of 2014’s hottest technology – 3D-printing – users can create a headset that simulates the feeling of strapping a Game Boy to their face. Thus, the device becomes an ‘Oculus Killer’: the PockulusC.H.I.P. A protective slip-on cover and bib, to protect wearers from bouts of VR-related motion sickness, is coming soon.
