The VR (Virtual Reality) race is on. It would be ridiculous or even naive to think that this life changing technology could have proceeded without Google’s involvement. This is how the Google Cardboard is being introduced. Yet, it is worth mentioning that the very approach is all that matters in the VR field.
A Google VR concept is definitely oriented toward mass production. The VR for everyone, this is how we could describe it. On the other hand, we have the pioneer Oculus Rift, which will be oriented toward the development of the VR related apps. We should also not forget to mention the Sony’s concept.
Morpheus project by Sony will cover the VR gaming area, that is for sure. From this point of view, it seems very clear and simple. The roles in the future VR world and business are assigned. Google mass production, Sony entertainment and eventually Facebook development. Is that all we have?
Apparently it is. Or, maybe somewhere in some small garage a busy little VR bee is about to come up with the ground shaking concept. We just have to be a little bit more patient. That is all. In the meantime, let us wait and see what the major IT players can do about the VR in the real business world.
Money makes the IT world come around. This is not a secret nor a huge surprise. Yet, it is definitely interesting to know that even the beginner’s steps in the cyber world are well paid and nicely rewarded. We will give you some preliminary information as the starting point for your own math and calculations.
The average intership salaries at Google, Amazon, Facebook, and other IT giants range somewhere from $7K to $10K give it or take the housing and other additional benefits. So, how do you feel about this one? If you are in the IT sector yourself, this is a nice thing to comment about with your colleagues.
On the other hand, if you are working somewhere else where your computer is only a working tool, then it is quite normal to be a little bit envious about it. The programer’s codes are moving our world forward. This is not a Hollywood style job filled with excitement, but it is certainly well compensated.
These impressive figures are the clearest indication that the IT sector still suffers from insatiable hunger for new developers and experts. If intership salaries are so rewarding, we can only guess what is happening at the later stages? Who wants to be rich has to find the right cyber switch. Right?
Where is the question mark? Do you feel that the title of this post should be followed by a question mark? Why? Well, we have to tell only the truth here. That is our obligation. Therefore, it would be more accurate to say that the Internet is an endless ocean, where everyone can find his or her goldfish.
The only trouble is that some of these shiny goldfishes may ask you for some gold in return. The things are rapidly changing in the cyber universe. Once a synonym for the free and useful things Google has turned into the merciless marketing money making machine. YouTube plans to charge us, as well.
For what? For a content free of ads. Facebook is always looking for a nice moment to earn some extra cash. Do we have to mention the online commercial services, which made it clear from the first moment that they are only about making money online, such as eBay or Amazon, for instance?
So, what is going to happen eventually with our dearest online materials? Keep your eyes open and your fingers restless, because sooner or later you will hit a sign that from now on certain charges are to be applied. Enjoy while it lasts. What else could we possibly say or do in this matter? Right?
Do you remember the good old days when the concept of the Virtual Reality was still an innocent baby, so fresh and unspoiled from the greedy paws of merciless commercialization? Those days are long gone. Nowadays, everyone in the real business world wants a peace of the virtual one. Why is that?
Well, we are not quite sure. Maybe, this is merely a matter of the latest IT prestige, and nothing more. Or, we are talking about something more serious. The VR can easily turn out to be the next cyber golden goose, which can be extremely generous to its investors. Someone is up to a profit here.
Someone is looking for a challenge. And, someone asks for nothing more than a prestige. So, all we have to do know is finding the most suitable category for the Apple’s VR project. The pioneer in this field Oculus Rift has already become an inseparable part of the Facebook cyber empire.
On the other hand, the project Morpheus by Sony will hardly manage to survive entirely on its own without some serious financial takeover. For what is worth, we are very likely to see some real bullets being shot in this virtual game of prestige. One thing is certain, the losses will be pretty much real.
Just the thing we need right now. With so many airborne announcements from Google, Facebook and Amazon, we will have flying cars, as well. What does it mean? Well, very soon we will move and live under a gigantic shade of the unimaginable number of small and mid size flying objects. It is a living horror.
Are we exaggerating? Rest assured that both of our legs are on the solid ground while we are writing this. Both MyCopter and AeroMobil are the EU funded flying car projects. Although, we are pretty much impressed, we have to admit that we are stressed, as well. Why? Well, it is very simple actually.
The flight regulations are rigorous for a good reason. We need the discipline and order above our heads. The last thing we need is the swarm of literally millions of small flying devices buzzing around us like crazy with no control at all. We need highways, signs and regulations for our sky traffic.
So, we have already asked you a question. How do you feel about these great news? Remind us, what was the right word for the fear of heights? Why do we need it? Well, we have this feeling that this word will be used very frequently in the near future. For the time being, we write this blog on the ground.
