The Future of Filmmaking with Oculus Rift

The Future of Filmmaking with Oculus Rift | Machinimania | Scoop.it

As the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset grows in popularity ahead of its late 2014/early 2015 consumer release, it’s already doing some pretty amazing things in beta. Though it’s been designed primarily for 3D gaming VR, it can also do things like controlling aerial camera drones. Clearly in the near future there are going to be some passive film viewing applications for the Oculus

Check this out:


“What’s exciting about it, I feel like we’re in 1927 when sound was first being introduced,” The Mission’s director Matthew Gratzner told Gizmodo, “but what you have to realize is that you don’t really have the ability to do coverage. In other words, you’re looking 360 degrees so every time you’re shooting something you have to be aware of someone or something you could see in the background [that shouldn't be there]. There is no ‘behind the camera’.”

Human extinction warning from Oxford

Human extinction warning from Oxford | Machinimania | Scoop.it

What are the greatest global threats to humanity? Are we on the verge of our own unexpected extinction?

An international team of scientists, mathematicians and philosophers at Oxford University's Future of Humanity Institute is investigating the biggest dangers.

And they argue in a research paper, Existential Risk as a Global Priority, that international policymakers must pay serious attention to the reality of species-obliterating risks.

Last year there were more academic papers published on snowboarding than human extinction.

The Swedish-born director of the institute, Nick Bostrom, says the stakes couldn't be higher. If we get it wrong, this could be humanity's final century.
