We discuss social media and how vr could evolve what facebook becomes as well as where kids fit into the picture with oculus quest and how facebook could the integrating into its remote work plans. I'm scott stein filling in for roger chang and this is your daily charge speak social because i think about that too you. Just launched a revamped version of social avatars. Horizon is kind of seems like facebook's metaverse Is keeps approaching Have you been spending time inside of. I've had two demos in horizon over the past couple of years. But i was curious if you're spending time in there and and what you might be doing in it and whether that might be heading towards a launch. It's this is a big project for us. 'cause there needs to be a social fabric that goes across these different all of the different layers of virtual reality. And that's where we hope to do with horizon. So part of it is building in the environment where we're digital creators can create worlds. And you can hang out with your friends Part of it is. We're building out this avatar system that is going to get increasingly expressive on the one hand and then if you want also realistic although i i think that everyone wants to be exactly realistic over the time so you want to offer both expressive and realistic. They're all these different services of this But basically that's a big part of what we wanna do around or at horizon also spans. You're not just it's not just social use his. it's not just gaming.

S6 E9 - How to identify what you are passionate about

"This is the we served now. What podcast and if you're anything like me you've had a ton of questions after leaving the military and the lack of answers has left you frustrated and probably a little confused. This show is here to help you make sense of the craziness that is post military life so you can turn your post military life into your best life. Money was aaron perkins a. Us army combat veteran husband to a beautiful wife. Daddy to amazing kiddos and on this episode of the show. I want to talk to you about identifying your passion in life and how you do that. That's a big question. I think we all have even if we haven't put into so many words like how do identify my passion in life. It's like well aaron. Who are you to talk about identifying passion. Well number one. I've identified my own number two. I developed a process to do just that net processes called the nine line framework which i put into the book called resolve. That is just a step by step guide for you. The veteran to help you to rediscover purpose meaning and you guessed it. Passion in your post military life before i dive into the episode today. I want to take a few minutes until you a little story. I myself love stories. I love hearing them. And i love telling them and this story is really near and dear to my heart because it's about my son. His name is christopher and you may have heard me talk about him on the show before But this story. I've never actually shared on the show because actually just happened about a week or two ago and my son christopher almost twelve years old. he's a normal kid. Not a huge fan of school. Really good in school gets really good grades Does everything well is i. I don't know if i would say popular. But you know people like him he. He's just a normal kid. And he. And i we have this unique Father son relationship. I mean we joke around a lot. We have a very very similar Sense of humor. So we have memes that will share back and forth and that's actually across our entire family that we can laugh at together and everything but this story about his passion for video games. Now you might be thinking well yeah. He's eleven year old boy. eleven year. Old kid boy girl the one but he's eleven year old kid and he loves video games. Yeah what kid doesn't we're here's the thing. He is not just passionate about video games. He is passionate about tech in school and his technical classes studying python programming language. He studying java script and his his his little techy and he loves the technical aspect of it. Well there's this that he has for one of his platforms. And it's called beets saber. You may have heard of it. It's on playstation four for vr. And it's on oculus quest to In fact every year. we're pretty much every year. We get a family gift at christmas and this past year. The family gift that we all could use was the oculus quest to and that is a a virtual reality gaming system. That's fully wireless but the headset on. Hold the controllers and you could just play play games fun and while he has been absolutely just going nuts over this thing having so much fun with it. Well again. this game beats saber. You can create your own levels if you modify the game and there is no right or wrong i should. There is a right or wrong way to do it but there is no manual that you can look at and say okay. This is how you modify find the game. So he gets on discord. he's he finds Some experts who know about modifying the game he chats with him for hours. Some of some of them are as friends he's he's played games with everything and he's talking to them. Like how do i modify this game. What do i need to do. He figures out the programs. He needs to us figures out how to roll the game back to a previous edition. Now he knows how to launch the game with these modifications so he can play his own levels on the game. Keep in mind. This had nothing to do with school this nothing to do with any requirement. This was just something that he wanted to do something that he is naturally gifted at and naturally naturally passionate about and that is that's what that's one of the things i wanna point out here. Today is your passion in life is most likely going to be something that you are naturally geared toward you are naturally good at and maybe even it may even be something that you have spent a lot of time practicing and preparing at and you've spent a lot of time working on developing that skill. It could be anything from woodworking to the medical field to an to. I'm the the passion ideas for your life are virtually endless. But you heard me referenced. The nine line framework earlier. And as i look at this nine line framework. You know again. It's it's this step by step guide. It is the process that helps you rediscover passion in your life after the military. And i look at these these lines in here. These chapters and the storage is told about my son. I can see him in these chapters. I can see how his passion is coming out just in the things that he is naturally doing now in the last episode i mentioned and talked about quite a bit actually line four. Which is what is my personality type. you know. why does it matter. And it's not even so much. Why does it matter. But how does that. Impact me and my passion and my purpose for life. And so i'm going to touch on line for a little bit today but i want to give you some examples from line five later in the show about discovering that passion in your life but line four again i used sixteen personalities dot com. You can go there right now. You can take this free assessment to figure out to learn what your personality type is and again that is not the only tool you can use you. Can use myers briggs. You can use the disk assessment. There are so many tools you can use to figure out your personality because in the military unless you are you had a way different experience than i did. They really ask you. What your what your passion was or even more specifically. They didn't ask what your personality was. Just said hey here the jobs you can pick from pick a job do your job and then you go your military career and you get out and now you're here listening to this show and saying man. How do identify my passion in life. What is it that i am passionate about. How do i find that. Well you'll hear me say this more than once. Pick up a copy of the resolve book. That is really your first step to figuring out your passion and your purpose and your meaning in your life after the military but again light for just goes over. What is your personality type. It walks you through that process of discovering who you are and who you're meant to be and line five asks another question it says what do i have to offer. And that's very specific to you. What do you have to offer the world. Because i believe that. A life focused on making a difference in the world as a life worth living. I think that's really what we're all after is that we want to make a difference. Maybe it's just in our own personal lives. Maybe it's in the lives of our friends or family or our church or our school whatever it may be or or if your teacher may be your students you want to make that positive impact and so line five walks you through that process of figuring out what it is that you have to offer so coming up after the break. That's what i'm going to talk about. I'm gonna share some examples and walk you through blind five and sharing this for free and you can pick up a copy of the book on amazon or on kerr's to fight again dot com but i'm gonna share the the line five here with you and some examples that can help you figure out what it is you are passionate about in your life. That's after the break. Stay with us. Many americans today. Don't realize the stress and anxiety they feel is most likely because of their finances according to bankrate.com more than six out of ten people couldn't cover a one thousand dollar emergency seven out of ten. Don't budget regularly. An eight out of ten are living paycheck to paycheck to these describe you. Are you ready to live like others. Can't too many make the mistake of budgeting their lifestyle instead of budgeting their basic needs. I my friend. Marco over at mc business lab has a simple process to automate the basic things. You need to live and then never looking at one of those bills again. Head over to live like others can't dot com to get on the wait list for his own line course to learn this automation skill. That will significantly reduce your stress and anxiety. And if you think one on one attention could be the way for you. You can also schedule your free consultation with marco once again that's live like others can't dot com get on the path to your dream life today all right so as we go into these examples. I want you to have an open. Mind here right some of these examples. You may not even thought of. But i i want you to keep in mind that some of these may not apply to you. Some of the may apply to you perfectly but before we get into those examples and went to review. Read you this quote from a retired general martin. Dempsey actually had him on the show. A few seasons ago A great conversation. You can go check that out. He talks about you know continuing to provide leadership in your post military life again. If you don't know years he is the former or the lissi would number was of eighteenth chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and so again great guy. We had a great conversation. Should go check that out. But i want to read you a quote. He said sometimes we wait for thunderclaps drum rolls and clearly on calls to alert us to what's important when actually it's most often the subtle and persistent signals around us. That make the most difference. I want you to think about that for a minute when you think about your passion and life and what. You are naturally geared toward what are those subtle and persistent signals. So in in the book. I talk about the subtle and persistent signal. I got even as a child as a teenager. Really that writing is something i am. Naturally gifted at is something. I'm naturally good at in fact My mother found a poem that i had written She was cleaning. My room was teenagers. Don't ask me why she was cleaning my room and she didn't make me do it but i'm very grateful for her but she was cleaning my room and she comes into the room and she sees this poem that i wrote and when i get home from school she asked me about it. She says hair. Where did you copy this phone for. Almost didn't copy it. I wrote it. And i'm all of a sudden proud of myself because see my mother had always been this voracious reader with a strong command of the english language so hearing her say something like that. Which implied the poem was of this incredibly high quality right. It has stuck with me to this day. That aaron you you're naturally gifted at that and that the poetry. It wasn't anything i had to do. It was something i had in my head and maybe even my heart and just wrote it down. It was something. I felt naturally wrong to do. Just like my son was naturally drawn to develop this modification for this game and figure out all the additional software he needed and how to modify it and how to play the game afterward. I was actually drawn to writing so in that case even though my son and i we get along great and we have great father son relationship were way different as far as our passions. Go and that's okay. It's the thing is my. My writing skills are they. Were constantly improving through my life and the funny thing is even as i wrote the book wonder like am i the most qualified person to to write this book. Maybe maybe i am gifted at writing right. Maybe i am good at this. But am i the most qualified person and so why do i tell you this right. I tell you this. Because i want you to realize something that i'm still learning myself. The skills you have are probably around eighty percents better than you actually think. I want to say that again. The skills that you have are probably around eighty percent better than you actually think. Now what are get the eighty percent number. You know statistically they say what is seventy. Six percent of statistics are made up on the spot. I will say this. Evidence is more inaccessible and nature. But the things you are passionate about. You are geared toward learning more about it it just this natural thing. It's not something that you can really force. Can you learn things and learn more about Passions in your life. of course. you can't can you learn how to take care of the zales in your garden or in your new hangar. The year rose garden right. Is rose garden on. That makes sense but i looked at my window and saw zulia so i i mentioned it so it. Can you learn about that. Scher will you be passionate about it. Maybe you can develop a passion for it but passionate in your life is is this area of your life. That's built in. Its this natural part view. And so where do you go from here right. What are those examples that promised you a before we get into those examples. I want to share with you just a few questions that you can write down to ask yourself and you can kind of fill these out like to help you figure out where you go from here and figure out what it is you have to offer the world so the first question goes right along the lines of my story. I just told about not only about my son but about myself. I have always been good at blank. Fill in the blank there. What is it that you have always been good at something. That seems easy for you for me. It was english and grammar and for my son. Tech is easy for him. Technologies easy for him super easy a he is are basically our systems administrator at the house. he knows so much about For my daughter the things she is naturally good at and she finds easy music. She finds that incredibly easy from wife. She finds the medical field incredibly easy to pick up on. And it's not because it's not challenging to learn it's because we have a passion for those particular things in our lives. Here's a second question you can ask yourself. I don't know why. But i really just enjoy doing the following things and then list those things what things that you do really bring you joy for me. It's writing it's crafting something from nothing. It's looking at this blank page and putting words on it and impacting the world with a those words. And let's see what's the next one number three this. This is kind of long ones. All probably read it a couple of times. I never thought about what. I'm naturally good at and what i enjoy until what so for this question. Think of a time your life in which our knowledge or skills or ability was needed. Think of a time when you were able to use it and you suddenly realized that brought you joy so i to read that one again and explain that a little more. I never thought about what. I'm naturally good at and what i enjoy until this particular event in my life. I never thought about me being really good at writing until my mother when i was fourteen. Fifteen years old picked up that poland in my room and said hey this is really good. Where did you copy this from. I never thought about that. My son may not have ever thought about how good he is attack. Until i pointed it out and said dude that is amazing that you figure that out on your own you contact the experts in and you did everything needs to do on your own and so when you think we think of that like okay. I never thought about what i'm naturally good at. And what i enjoy until a particular event in your life and you think about when your knowledge or your skills or abilities were needed and and then you say okay. I was able to use it at that point in my life and then you suddenly realize man that made me feel really good. That brought me joy. That was dare. I say it fun and a lot of times. We as adults we. We tend to tend to think like well. You know i'm an adult. I don't need to have funding more. I shouldn't be having fun anymore. I'm more focused on business and and making money taking care of my family. Those are all great things but at the end of the day passion following that passion pursuing that passion your life a lot of times what it feels like is fun just a lot of fun number four thing. You can ask yourself. I was able to make a difference in a person's life by using one or more of my unique abilities which not only made a difference but it brought me joy as well and the question is list those skills or abilities that you use to impact someone's life or to make a difference in the world for me. They'll be writing for my son that might be tech my daughter that might be music for my wife that might be the medical field. So there's so many things that again virtually unlimited number of things where you can find passion in your life and it's those things that you are naturally geared toward they. Here's a few examples. I'm going to review these for you just to give you a sense of where you can find passion in your life and don't get caught up on the stories themselves. I want you to imagine yourself. What is it that you personally find your passionate about. Here's example number one. I was a cormon in the navy. And i learned a lot about helping others in times of medical crisis. I found so much joy. In this. I knew my job well and i knew i was making a difference. Pretty simple right pretty direct and so this person says hey. I knew what i was doing was making a difference. And i found joy in it. Here's another really good one along the video games. A video games idea. I love playing video games call of duty fortnight minecraft you name it. I get a sense of joy out of playing them and truth be told. I'm pretty good at it. My unique personality which i found in line for which i now understand. It equips me well as a teacher and so a combined those elements to start a video game players club in my community. We get together. We eat snacks. Play video games. Hold tournaments and get to know each other better. It's such a great time. And i love it. So being a woman in the navy versus playing video games way different right but still these people can find passion in these things see. Here's a here's another one very a very hands on example. I've never really enjoyed school or sitting in the classroom. But one thing i do enjoy working with my hands getting my hands dirty now that i know my unique personality type again that he learned in line for i understand more about wild like this type of work and why i tend to dislike sitting in the classroom. I love solving problems. I distinctly remember one time when my elderly neighbors toilet was leaking. She asked me. If i knew someone who could help and gladly volunteered myself. I checked out the situation figured out what. The problem was unseated. The toilet installed a new wax ring and reseeded the toilet. She was so grateful. And i had fixed a problem for her. I felt really good about myself. That's huge The the the What do you call it. The joy the inner joy that comes from making a positive difference in someone else's life is absolutely huge. Now here's here's the last example share with you because we're running up on time but this one. I really liked this one. Because i have a dog. I love my dog and a lot of you probably have pets as well but this one says. I am a pet whisper. Yes it may sound silly to some. But i have an incredible heart for dogs cats birds and just about any other animal who is suffering or quote unquote down on their luck. In fact i have adopted two dogs and two cats. I've them better lives. This has been so rewarding to me and it is a passion. I continue to pursue. See the thing is there is not one specific passion that we are all going to find fulfilling the passion in your life is going to be your own. Here's the last thing. I want to share with you how we are built as humans. We're designed to live our best life in the context of relationships with other people. I to say that again as humans. We're are designed to live our best lives in the context of relationships with other people. You know chances are we're not all going to be billionaires or a world famous politicians. Are you know billboard topping musicians but we can all make a difference when we find that passion in our lives. We all have a lot of questions but the most important question you can ask yourself is this have. I accepted the forgiveness of sins. That only comes through faith in jesus christ. I hope you enjoyed this episode. Hope it's been helpful for you and that you've learned at least a little bit about identifying that passion in your life again you can pick up a copy of the resolve book at courage to fight again dot com or on amazon and i will share those links in the show notes as i typically do. Leave us a review. I tunes at definitely helps so much. Of course follow social media kurds. Finding in dot com is our website. Thank you so much for listening. We will see you next time.

Whenever i pay attention to blockchain which is sporadically over the years. I keep asking people the question. When will consumers be able to do something with the blockchain it seems like primarily is a theoretical construct and people use it to speculate with bitcoin and the two examples they pointed to over. The years are crypto kitties which made and now top shot. Which you've made so i think a lot of people have heard about top shot at his away. Essentially for you to buy and trade digital basketball trading cards at least for the moment said is that a fair summary of what of what you've made. Yeah well mean. I think i think we took the best parts of trading cards and we took it to the next level because tough shots are more than just pictures on on sort of rectangles. They're they're actually The the greatest highlights the greatest moments in nba history And the moments that are happening on screen and games that have that that are going on on tv and we actually cut high definition video. Where we're going to add a audio and in the future And it's just much more immersive experience. These are three d objects that in the future will be able to go into virtual reality. Augmented reality it's it's much bigger than than just trading cards but we took the best parts of trading cards sin and that sort of economy designed.

Clubhouse Becomes the Latest Hot App By Doing Everything Wrong

"From one three. I'm david brown. And this is business. Worst daily on this tuesday march second. Let's say you were invited to a party. Where the guest list included oprah drake and jared lehto as well as top venture capitalist business executives journalists and all manner of influencers. Would you go well. That party is happening on a beta version. Social media app called clubhouse and in about nine months. The app has gained an estimated three million users and a billion dollar valuation clubhouses content is like a series of audio only presentations and panel discussions he s. That's right audio. We'll get to that in a minute. These talks happen in so-called rooms which are really like well conference calls there's a presenter or panel other people are listening to anyone can raise a hand and ask a question or participate in the discussion. You can meet people and have conversations and because presentations are not supposed to be recorded by users. You're either there or you missed out the thing about clubhouse though is that it appears to do everything wrong. First of all as i said earlier. It's audio based that's right. Viral video challenges or memes. Not even a cute cat photo. That means that all of those people who hate to use the phone have to logon and have an actual conversation also android users. Sorry you're out of luck. This app is for apple devices. Only at least for now finally membership is by invitation. So unless you know someone who's willing to fork over one of their coveted invites you're locked out again for now. Clubhouse founders say that eventually the format will be open to all but what is that for now. Exclusivity is what's driving growth in roughly nine months. Fomo fear of missing out has fueled the apps popularity some even say that the old school style of having conversations is the key to its success. You have to listen and be able to say something meaningful. So people are striking business deals finding content partnerships and having conversations with some truly interesting people.

Will Virtual Reality be the Future of Work

"Great well andress. Thank you very much for coming. Onto the automated. Podcasts is great to have you here saying you so one of the things i like to do with all my guests when they first come on to get a little bit more of a personal connection with you to understand what made you originally interested in the topic will be talking about vr today Quite a bit so what initially got you interested in that. So actually my my interest. In in i came morris A site thing and it was kind of a coincidence. You could say like around a year ago. I started to really have this interest in teaching in particularly meditation and and kind of how to work with your consciousness to get more awareness in your life and happiness in. Oh that's really what is And Because i had a background tech entrepreneurs kind of thing. Obviously maybe i can kind of build like tech product around you know leverage some of my knowledge as an entrepreneur an also that that could like because many people teaching meditation. That could kind of be in it. That was how i thought about it in my mind and what happened So so and i had seen these kind of rectal. Visualizations that. don't know if you're aware of sexual medics. So i'm also a practicing meditation guy. So i've been doing it for quite a long time so i understand also within the covert lockdown situation. I think there was a massive gravitation towards meditation apps in general so Whether whether the fracture or guided. Or otherwise i think i think i understand where you're coming from. Yeah well deal was to create the ultimate meditation machine and then using these kind of rectal visualizations in three sixty and had that as like an edit component there is actual research jesting that have are very common effect and potentially are able to like make the kind of analytical mind a bit more passive so it's elective and try to digest which is really wanted to do in the initial phases of learning meditation anyways That kind of That coincidentally fru working on this the startup. I bumped into the guys. I'm working with now in meeting vr. Because we would just at the same place only having that via thing in common. And i was just seeing what they were doing and it really awesome and that was right before the pandemic and and we were talking about. Maybe should help them a little bit. Just on a consultancy basis with some business strategy and stuff like that and then the pandemic hit. And i was like okay. I can i jump ball ship. Kinda struggle moment fruit food for the first free s that they had already kind of gun fruits so i just decided like why buy make it hot for myself and and And yet so we are. You're almost a year after i guess. Well i think that's one of the more interesting backgrounds that somebody's given onto the podcast. It's rare that meditation. Some sort of interesting introspection leads you into either. vr technology. Talk on here so so great to hear we have talked about. Vr a number of times on the podcast. I think what would be good is if we just kind of dive into. What is the company that you're working with a meat in vr. I looked at it quite a bit on the online. It'd be great to hear a little bit from from yourself. Kind of what is what is it. What makes it different from other platforms and kind of what makes you excited about it. I think initially what made me excited about. It was that i saw that. The founders stimulate for people. And i mean. I didn't actually need to know a lot more than that. Because i just saw people's reactions and it was just kind of gut level feeling of all lead. Holy fuck it's really possible. Like sorry can occur on this. Yeah yeah yeah go ahead. But people were so they were so blown away and And i described towards those kind of expensive moments in my life. I feel like that's what the an important part of what life is about. And i think now that with the pandemic still upon us Rooms where we can meet in. Vr specifically are maybe more needed than at any other time in the in the past four for the for the listeners. Can you maybe describe what Meet in vr. Is i think the idea is relatively simple to grasp. But i think that the the impact it would have is actually quite interesting. This of course So the isis is that it's a it's a virtual meeting room. It has everything you would expect from being in a meeting with somebody You'll represented you have like a character. It's kind kinda like a game. You have your headset on you. You have a character that looks like you and then you'll meeting in in a virtual meeting room and so it's a lot like it's a it's kind of what's it called a substitute for soom and video calls and what it can do video course kinda cannot do. Is that feeling of being together with the people joe meeting with

The Most Details On Apples AR/VR Headset Yet

"Sources are giving the information the most details. We've heard yet. About apple's rumored mixed reality headset rumors. They are dishing are the headset will have eight. K displays advanced i tracking tech and more than twelve cameras to track hand movements. And also show. What's going on out. In the real world quote the information viewed internal apple images of late stage prototype from last year which show a sleek curved vs attached to the face by a mesh material and swappable headbands. Apple is far along in the design of the product which apple employees are internally describing as a mixed reality headset because of its ability to combine virtual reality experiences with games and other applications that use real life objects surrounding the person wearing the headset. It could ship as early as next year. Said the person with direct knowledge of the product who requested anonymity to talk about a device. That apple hasn't yet publicly admitted it is making. The company has tapped taiwanese manufacturer petron. Which already makes iphones and ipads for apple to assemble it. Still the product is complex and risky enough. That apple could decide to postpone or shelve it as it has done with other novel. Products in the past among the biggest risks is the price of the device which is likely to cost significantly more than the three hundred to one thousand dollars for existing. Vr headsets from facebook's oculus and others last year apple internally discuss pricing the product around three thousand dollars more than the starting price of the company's high end laptops but around the thirty five hundred dollars that microsoft charges for its mixed reality headset hollow lens. According to the person with direct knowledge of the device the potentially high price explains why apple has internally talked about a goal of shipping. Only about two hundred and fifty thousand units of the headset in the first year of its release though. That plan could change according to the person one of the biggest mysteries around the product. How people will use it. Games have been one of the main attractions for vr headsets and are likely to be a focus for apple's devices well. The company has internally discussed productivity and education applications. The person said that category is still young and faces questions around data privacy and unknowns around long term usage which may slow its ability to break out from early adopters

I personally have a lot of fun with that role in general just because it gives me the ability to see how we can create value for users of creative ways with technology is where we might not see very consumer or user friendly and i might add like one of the reason why this is such a differentiation. Headed what you're talking about. Even sent to city in is market. Ni- expedience must. Genie are working together. Cohesively issue the cool part of the conversation that will be having at the at the upcoming event with community and is about building and designing intelligent digital platforms that are built with humans entity the human in the mind and building them to drive adoption so that we can take a lot of these concepts that are explored in a typical machine learning ai.

Virtual 2021 Sundance Film Festival opens on a screen very near you

"City, Utah. And because of the pandemic, thousands of film lovers will go to premieres, panels and parties, mostly online. NPR's Mandali Del Barco has this preview. This year's Sundance opens with the premier of the documentary, Summer of Soul or when the Revolution could not be televised. Director Amir Thompson, known as the Musician. Quest, Love presents footage of the 1969 Harlem cultural Festival that has never been seen since. Pressure's lower. Take My hand was Dr King's favorite zone and Sistema Hey, you're Jackson was my idol. She was my hero. I love this. So much listening to singer Mavis Staples praising my Hayley and Jackson is just one highlight of the film. In a normal year. There'd be long lines of festivalgoers standing in the snow to get into theaters to watch. This year films will be screened virtually through especially built online platform, says the festival's new director, Tabatha Jackson. The global pandemic hit And we realized that we had to re imagine everything. Jackson says her team wanted to create a wafer, filmgoers and filmmakers to gather will be able to chat with each other in virtual waiting rooms. Then watch film premieres together before asking questions of the casts and crews, and that's to preserve the energy and the excitement on the buzz and the conversation. In that moment, as we are confined in our Safe spaces. This is an opportunity to go out into the world and be taken around the world by some of these films as an international festival dedicated to independent filmmaking, the Sundance Community prides itself on being a bit scrappy. We're excited. I think this feels like a grand experiment, so people who are they couldn't afford it or couldn't make the journey. Couldn't navigate the icy streets of Park City can now come to Sundance. We're bringing Sundance to them. This year, Half the films at Sundance were directed by people of color as well as by women. Many were shot or finished during the pandemic lockdown. There's even one titled In the same breath about how covert 19 began in Wuhan, China. Many of the doctors said these hospitals must have known this new virus was spreading between people, but they were afraid to say so for fear of punishment from the government. Among the feature films to watch for is Koda, about a hearing girl whose family is deaf, also sons of monarchs, about a Mexican biologist and flee and animated film about an Afghan refugee. Other highlights included documentary about choreographer Alvin Ailey and another about the life and career of actress Rita Moreno. Life can be pressing America what was different about Anita and with side stories that she was a girl who respected herself. Who had a certain amount of dignity. Actually, she became my role model. The festival will also include online panels, meetups concerts and parties, many of them free. There will be virtual spaces for black and Latin. Next creators, and Jackson says festival goers can participate in the new frontier program using Webcams or virtual reality headsets from home, you Congar! Oh, in as an avatar, you can wonder around this incredible space garden. Go to parties, which are where people are going to gather to talk about films. We felt a cinema house in this virtual environment, and there's an extraordinary gallery off new work. The reason I'm so excited about it is because it really is an unusual space in which we can still come together and socialize, and it doesn't feel anything like Zoom. Sundance is also partner with art House cinemas around the country to present some in person events, including at drive in theaters. Manda Little Barco. NPR news.

Experience a Lost Disney World Ride in Virtual Reality

"Defunct land vr. Lets you experience a classic disney ride twenty five years after it was closed. And this is something that i'm super into. I think it's really really interesting. So there's a couple things to talk about here. There's a youtube channel called defunct land which I would highly recommend you checkout. It's extremely fascinating stuff. They just but fifteen minute videos on old theme park rides That are no longer around and kind of. Why do they close. Or what was it like. And that sort of stuff. And i think a few years back it was there. The announced the patriots. It's like hey you know potentially if we get enough patrons we might try to recreate some of these old rides and vr. So they actually did it. They actually released a twenty thousand leagues under the sea. Which i didn't really know much about in fact When i saw this news i was familiar with defunct line. In fact there. Is that really great documentary. Class action park on. Espn defunct land. Did a video in action park. Actually before that even came out so anyway i was kind of aware of it but i went back and i watched their two parter to videos on twenty thousand leagues under the sea submarine voyage. And like i knew. I was going to download this. Vr thing. I thought you know what. Let me get some context. I watch those videos so cool. And finally i put on the headset and did it. And i just love this whole thing. I just love the idea of vr being away to just to just keep a repository of these things that are so the go away. You know what i mean. Yeah i mean this is. This is ready player. One stuff you know like this is like relive your child at least for me. I remember the twenty thousand leagues under the sea. Ride really super cool for folks that have never experienced it in one journey back into time that they never got to see for me this. This feels like this was what i remembered. It still feels weird that it's finding nemo on. It's been that way. Yeah how many years but That was when i was a kid. Christian. did you ever ride the twenty thousand leagues under the sea. Ride as a fourteen year old is how old i am now. I have. yeah. I definitely have and i remember where they did at disneyland. I don't know like florida like the rebrand for nemo i. It's gotten better but at first it was like. And here's nemo one clown fish in there and i was like clown actually actually wrote the nemo one i never. I never wrote the twenty thousand one. So i was kind of coming in reverse. You know like seeing what it was now and then taking a trip back in time to what it used to be. You know. I haven't done this yet is it. Is it a good experience the vr. Yeah it's pretty solid. I would say it's definitely on the lower end of fidelity it's very much an independent projects. I think he's done a new unity. And as i was watching. There's a couple of things it's actually pretty cool. Is like watching youtube videos. They talk about how the effect was created. And how you're basically in a boat. You're not you're you never really submerged under the water and if if you look up during the ride you can kind of see the surface of the water and they kind of recreated all those of You know behind the scenes things in this. Vr rights if you look at the water and stuff and if you'd like peak around to the left to right you can see the way the track benz like kind of a real amusement park where you can sort of see us to where you were and where you're going to be in that sort of thing so i like the way they did that. They didn't wear like it. They're trying to recruit the ride not the experience and so the jank that comes with it and what's funny is on a on a sub on another level like a meta level because you're now abstracting at one further with like low poly objects and characters. It's like a semi lack of a similar. Acura is kind of funny. Well i guess there's a bunch of this kind of stuff that's also in dreams like people are doing using the playstation for dreams platform which also supports vr vr to do a lot of Disney ride recreation and stuff super super. Cool

"Technically going into this virtual dress? Sure we'LL I. I'll open Komo bit. Say It took us about forty five minutes to get them to go on so we are in mill position to make fun of the. Gm's I don't think this will have a huge impact on the actual picks the NFL has said they'll freeze the clock. If there's any sort of technical difficulties I do think it might impact trays. Because a lot of teams will try to get their deals done before Thursday. We always see deals at the last minute and that requires a lot of communication. What I think could happen is you could see a team trading up for say a henry rugs zero CD lamb and another team. Hey I would have given up more picks but they just might not have gotten the golden dime or hey. My computer was working. Let's stop everything. And let's redoing all that in play Israel Gutierrez. Could you see a world where technically this virtual draft? Just can't go forward the way it should. I mean I absolutely can and frankly the NFL. Just us right now. Like I said we're all struggling with finding finding a way to get things. Done the thirty for thirty on this. Twenty twenty draft is going to be amazing when it comes down to. Hey maybe there was this big. That was out there that somebody wanted. Or maybe those was this this trade situation that some some other team turned down because they couldn't figure it out technologically speaking or just couldn't get in contact with somebody. That's all fun to me. They don't have to do this. I know they're doing this to sort of get their year moving along but they don't have to do this. This is all going to be pure fun for those watching. So if there are a few glitches there are few glitches. We just keep going and hey maybe tried again tomorrow. That's that's trying to do better tomorrow. You think that's an Sarahspain how the League field technically going into this virtual draft. First of all I'm happy to be here on izzy Gutierrez's Youtube show his background. Looks like going out live to the world. I mean listen. They've got four ways to make picks Microsoft teams.
