Bringing the 360° VR Office Experience to Remote Workers

For many years, I have been curious about virtual reality headsets, but had never followed through with actually trying one. For one, they were very expensive and two, no one I knew owned one, so the only opportunity to try one out was in my local mall. The VR gaming space in the mall was …

Whiff – Chapter 2

Writers’s Moment: Cyber Theatre

I just need to pause and take a breath. My podcast theatre production is reaching a huge milestone. We are nearly ready to release Act I of E-Vatar, and just yesterday, we released the Act I (calling it a season) trailer. This is a new sort of thing for me. I've never written a play, …
