Mercedes-Benz has a car that can read your mind

quote [ Mercedes-Benz's Vision AVTR concept vehicle can now read the driver's mind via a brain-computer interface. ]

Mind reading is a bit of a stretch, but this looks to be using the NextMind which is a basic BCI that monitors your occipital lobe for specific visual patterns in order to detect what you're looking at. It made the rounds on a number of VR youtube channels in the past year or so. I put some in the extended. Pretty cool, but not the advanced frontal lobe stuff I'm interested in. This looks to be a good usage for it as it seems geared for UI.

Gabe Newell: Alyx Ending 'Right For Where Half-Life's Going'

quote [ Gabe Newell says Half-Life: Alyx's ending was the "right progression for where we're going with Half-Life." HMM. ]

lol. Half Life 4 confirmed.

I've been playing HL:A mod C17YSCAPE this past week. It's quite good. The level design and lighting is pretty on par with regular Alyx and the pacing and fighting isn't half bad either. I think I've got about a good 6 hours on it so far. Plus all the bhaptics Alyx mods still work on it, which is a major bonus.

I TRIED the Yaw 2 - THE Next Gen VR Motion Simulator Is Awesome

quote [ The Yaw 2 is here! This is VR?s next-generation motion simulator which makes you feel like you?re driving a car, flying airplanes, or even spaceships in the comfort of your house. ]

I find it interesting they're going for a more modular design with this version, leaving left/right rotation as an option.

I made $22 Virtual Reality Gloves.

quote [ This is the journey of how I decided to make my own VR Haptic Gloves and the first 3 prototypes on the way to making VR Haptics affordable for everyone. ]

The dude that made the VR gloves that have been all over TikTok and youtube has responded to the recent popularity with the intent to start a diy series to show people how to make the gloves and teach the basics behind them. Pretty ingenious techinques.

There's also a Humble Spring Into VR Bundle - kinda disappointing selection, but if you're just getting into VR, they're a pretty good start for a library.

After the Fall | Cinematic Trailer

quote [ Explore the remains of a civilization ground to a halt in an alternate 1980s, craft a range of ranged and melee weapons, and wield devastating powers with real-life movements. Go solo or join up with players worldwide as you face relentless hordes and colossal bosses in a bid to take back the city. ]

From the creators of Arizona Sunshine, this has a very Left 4 Dead feel. Looking forward to it.

SteamVR Body Tracking Kit Much Cheaper Than Vive Trackers - this looks like it may have some potential. Not quite the accuracy of Lighthouse trackers, but at half the price-ish...
