Christian Murray's curator insight, November 15, 2014 10:20 AM

OK, more public access VR  but this time  developer tools and for the   web experience of using HMD.  certainly seems to be a busy time for  the developers  and i hope that they manage to make some interesting applications and interfaces.  It's clear that the next big thing is  going to be your  wi-fi/IR control rings for your fingers so that MOCAP controls are abundant and then you can  manage  a lot with a good  HMD and a smartphone or tablet or pc. In the old days we used cybergloves but i know we can do better now and there are already certain ring control systems  coming out. So we'll see how long it takes for a facebook or the likes to see the light!

Oftentimes, the letters of...
Cindy Rudy's insight:

Looks like the research doesn't fully support the supposition.  It is worth a shot however, if there is the possibility that it will support dyslexic learners.
