Last week, I wrote about Sony entering the virtual reality market by announcing their newest product in the Playstation line: Project Morpheus. It’s their very own VR device that is planned to work with most of the Playstation devices (PS4, PSMove, PSEye).
Just earlier this week, Facebook announced that they have acquired Oculus Rift for a whopping $2 billion!
As so, the company does promise to everyone that they “will not sell out.” The community can only hope that they continue their work to define this generation of wearables, specifically the virtual reality department.
My thoughts? Three simple points:
Let’s hope that Zuckerberg doesn’t repeat history and just shut down the company like what they did with WhatsApp.

As much as we don’t want it to be, we should expect that the Oculus Rift will have some sort of social media integration similar to Playstation integrating their PS4 to Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. So, I suppose Facebook is just making a big leap forward by buying the company. One thing that worries me is “virtual Facebook” where Facebook and VR come together. That would be the scariest and stupidest thing ever.
*knocks on wood*
Lastly, I wish Oculus Rift the best. I mean, the company had a great start. They had a marvelous 2013 and 2014 is looking good for them as well. I know it’s going to be great for them to become partners with an already powerful company. All I don’t want to see is “virtual FarmVille.”

A couple of days ago, Sony announced “Project Morpheus” as their latest product to enter the line for the Playstation system. It is their own virtual reality device for the Playstation 4.
As much as the hype go, this is very exciting. To think that Sony will be entering the virtual reality battlefield, with only Oculus Rift as their opponent, is by far one of the most interesting moves they’ve done recently.
They announced it at Game Developers Conference, where Last of Us won multiple awards. When they presented Morpheus, they used a modified version of the game “God of War” from the first person point of view. Could this be hinting at something for the next installation of God of War? Interesting…
Richard Marks, the senior director of research and development at Sony, mentioned that Morpheus is also planned to be used for other purposes, one in which he said that they have been working with NASA for an exploratory project.
The Morpheus will also work alongside the Playstation Eye and the Playstation Move systems, which will give it more usability when the time comes.
Honestly, in my opinion, Sony’s got it in the bag. As much as I try not to be biased, I think that the XBOX One’s got nothing on this project. Sure, Microsoft might go and make their own virtual reality system, but that would make them second in line (or third if you count the Oculus Rift). That also means that Sony beat them to the punch when it comes to innovating their young hardware. Also, the fact that Sony started working on this project hand in hand with the Playstation 4 means that they have high hopes for the console. I can’t wait for this.
Keep an eye out for more information!

So, the World Wide Web turns 25 today! Isn’t that awesome?
To be honest, I cannot imagine a world without the Internet and the World Wide Web. For some of you who do not know, the World Wide Web actually started in the military (as do most of our technology today) and it was used to send information between rooms (I think).
I would like to share this AMAZING photo of what the Internet looks like. It’s quite amazing to see.
Anyway, congratulations World Wide Web for achieving 25 years of awesomeness!
The World Wide Web has been free for all these years, and we should keep it that way! I like it that way. It’s nice and gives everyone the freedom that they deserve. The history of the World Wide Web is quite interesting too. It’s fun to know the roots of what you love.
Now, let’s celebrate by following Tech Gum, yay!
