Product Anthropomorphism: The Personification of Design | Norman Peires | Scoop.it

2016: the year when VR goes from virtual to reality - BBC News

2016: the year when VR goes from virtual to reality - BBC News | Norman Peires | Scoop.it
The HTC Vive, seen by many as providing the best VR experience, was due to launch late last year but its debut was delayed for some further tweaking.
Now, it should join Sony's PlayStation VR and Facebook's Oculus Rift headset on the market in the next few months.
The games industry is betting big on virtual reality, but there may be questions about the breadth of content available to players at first.
Games like Everest provide a great immersive experience.

Mariano Pallottini's curator insight, December 4, 2015 6:48 AM

Vintage Trains, refurbished and historic, offer the most unique way to experience train travel in Italy. Representing a variety of periods during the "Golden Age of Rail," (The first Italian railroad was the Naples-Portici, in the Kingdom of the Due Sicilie, which was inaugurated on October 3, 1839 by King Ferdinand II).

We hope with the privatization of the Italian railways, this special tourism will know a big boost forward. Italy is certainly the country that can offer a varied landscaping range even within the same stage.
Vintage Rail Cars are, for the most part, refurbished train carriages brought to modern standards for convenience expected by today's travelers.

All fits of Skills Positive Parenting that kids use realizing that occasionally when they do it they get their direction.
