Where Virtual Reality Is Going

Jon Rappoport: I want to sketch the path along which virtual reality is going. Right now, companies are selling improved tech that allows a helmet-wearer to see landscape and people in a wider perspective, and hear layers of sounds to the left and right, and above and below him.

Attractive Tree Turbines Are A Quiet, Affordable New Way To Generate Energy

Real trees offer something substantive to the world in the way they omit oxygen. Now, the French company, New Wind has created fake trees that serve a great purpose as well –- they generate electricity. The “wind trees” they have created have steel trunks and mini plastic turbine leaves that can generate electricity form even the slightest breeze. They are extremely affordable, nice to look at, and much quieter than more traditional larger turbines.

Google’s Self-Driving Car Hits Roads Next Month—Without a Steering Wheel or Pedals

The self-driving, goofy-looking car with no steering wheel or pedals that Google revealed in May is now “fully functional” and should start testing on public roads next month, the tech giant says. Over the past seven months, Google has made a series of prototypes, testing different aspects of the design, from steering and braking to the sensors and software that brings it all together. The result, it says, is “our first complete prototype for fully autonomous driving.”
