Review of the new Xreal Air2 AR (Augmented Reality) glasses. I use these glasses playing Steam Deck games, Nintendo Switch games, iPad & more.
Augmented reality (AR) glasses are wearable devices that seamlessly blend digital information with the real-world environment, enhancing the user’s perception and interaction with their surroundings. These glasses typically consist of a lightweight frame equipped with transparent display screens positioned in front of the user’s eyes. The display technology allows virtual images, graphics, or information to be superimposed onto the user’s view of the real world. AR glasses often incorporate sensors such as cameras, accelerometers, and gyroscopes to track the user’s movements and gather data about the environment. This data is then processed in real-time to generate and display relevant augmented content.
One of the primary advantages of augmented reality glasses is their potential to revolutionize how users consume information and engage with digital content. From providing contextual information about the objects in the user’s field of view to enabling immersive gaming experiences or aiding in navigation through enhanced maps and directions, AR glasses have a broad range of applications. Moreover, they offer hands-free operation, allowing users to access information and perform tasks without the need for a separate device. As technology continues to advance, augmented reality glasses are poised to play an increasingly significant role in various industries, including healthcare, education, manufacturing, and entertainment, by offering innovative solutions to enhance productivity, learning, and entertainment experiences.

Meta’s new Quest 3 headset is a nice improvement over the Quest 2, introducing some amazing mixed reality features and improving VR too
Designing and manufacturing a VR headset presents a myriad of complex challenges. Firstly, the optics and display technology must be meticulously engineered to provide a high-resolution, low-latency visual experience. Achieving a wide field of view without sacrificing image clarity is a delicate balance, requiring precise calibration and advanced optics. Additionally, minimizing motion sickness and discomfort for users is paramount, demanding careful consideration of factors like refresh rates, pixel density, and color accuracy. Striking the right balance between weight, ergonomics, and fit is another formidable challenge, as the headset must be comfortable for extended periods of wear. Moreover, ensuring compatibility with a wide range of devices and platforms adds a layer of complexity, as VR headsets need to interface seamlessly with various operating systems, controllers, and tracking systems.
Beyond the hardware, software development poses its own set of hurdles. Creating an immersive and realistic virtual environment necessitates sophisticated graphics rendering and real-time tracking capabilities. Achieving smooth and accurate motion tracking, while avoiding lag or jitter, is a substantial technical feat. Moreover, optimizing software to run efficiently on a wide range of hardware configurations is a significant challenge, given the diverse ecosystem of PCs and gaming consoles. Integrating intuitive user interfaces and interaction methods that allow for natural and intuitive movement within the virtual space further complicates development. Additionally, ensuring a robust and secure ecosystem of applications, while also supporting third-party development, requires careful consideration of software standards and development tools. Overall, the intricate interplay between hardware and software components in VR headset design requires a multidisciplinary approach and a deep understanding of both engineering and user experience principles.
This is a tough one… I’m comparing the new PlayStation VR2 vs Meta Quest 2 – Which is BETTER?
PlayStation VR2 is the successor to the original PlayStation VR headset and is designed to work with the PlayStation 5 console. It features an improved resolution, wider field of view, and better tracking, as well as a new controller with enhanced haptic feedback and adaptive triggers. The headset also includes features like eye-tracking and foveated rendering for improved graphics and performance. On the other hand, the Meta Quest 2 is a standalone virtual reality headset that doesn’t require a PC or console to operate. It features a high-resolution display, six degrees of freedom tracking, and a comfortable design. The Meta Quest 2 also includes hand-tracking and supports a wide range of games and applications from the Oculus Store.
Review of the new Ken & Roberta Williams (Sierra On-Line) remake of Colossal Cave, an old text adventure from 1976. Remade and updated w/ 3D graphics…but is it stuck in the past?

There are lots of opinions about the upcoming PSVR2 and direction Sony had gone with it. In this video I give you thought about this and explain why.
Here are 5 games that exceeded my expectations and really SURPRISED me at how great they are!
| I have now literally covered all Resident Evil 4 ports once and for all! With this VR port done, I’m basically a Resident Evil 4 super coverer. Too bad it’s the last one and I’ll never feel this high again of completing every single RE4 game. Are there other games?
Chuhai Labs – Chuhai Labs crime lords Kinsey Burke and Mark Lentz are back to talk about our newest release Carve Snowboarding! This Oculus Quest joint rips and rules and you should probably definitely get it. OUT NOW!
To make an episode even better, we are joined by guests Michael Swaim and Mark Holcomb. These fools are TITANS of industry and both voice actors in Carve Snowboarding. Michael Swaim is an acclaimed comedy writer and performer and can be found on IGN’s video team creating absolute nonsense. Mark Holcomb has voiced characters in the critically lauded Disco Elysium and can be found on guitar in the progressive-metal band Periphery.
