BCM3 DA part 2 (Virtual reality gaming)

Thoughtfroth

I have previously posted a blog about VR gaming. Talking about what sparked my interest with VR, its locomotion and which ones I prefer, I even introduced an interesting tech (mind-control!) and its different possibilities in future games. Finally, I talked about how haptic technology could improve our immersion when playing VR games. I will be using this blog to get comments for my DA by tweeting about it. I am hoping for people outside of this course to comment on it as well because I know there are a lot of people out there like me, hoping for VR gaming to hit the next step! The comments I hope will be informative to me and help me get a newer perspective with VR gaming or just learn more about the topic.

beta: The future of education: Online Learning

Link: https://youtu.be/q5ZFJdK6mt0

In the last few weeks, I have been doing some further research for my digital artefact, “The Future of Education: Online Learning”. I have recently made some public engagements with my peers by posting my pitch on Twitter as well as two new survey polls. I also made the first part of my 2-part mini series, talking about the short to medium-term changes and posted it on YouTube and WordPress. 

I am currently looking for more academic/scholarly and news/media sources to continue making the final DA. Throughout the weeks before my final DA, I will also make the second part of my 2-part mini series, telling further on my DA and inviting the audience to come back and view my DA. I will then post my DA on YouTube and WordPress.

Beta presentation:

YouTube Video on Beta Presentation.

The content flow of the videos is going to be utilized. Start from introducing the pollution, predicting the future life, and what we can do to have improvement. And in the video, I am going to take references from the internet, including historical records like Pea Soup Fog, video games like Oxygen not included, and movies like Wall-E.

Beta project (cyborg)

#BCM325 Future Cultures #Week 8 #Explanation of My Project

“The cyborg is a kind of disassembled and reassembled, postmodern collective and personal self.” (Haraway,2000).

The appearance of “Cyborg” blurred the line between origin and reproduction. It breaks the concept from “Creations.” Everyone has to admit it is a futuristic and mystic topic. That is the reason why it attracts me to use “Cyborg” as my project.

I believe people may found hard to understand this academic topic with lots of technical terms. At first, I wanted my videos to be informative, to help people clearly understand the concept of “Cyborg”.

However, I changed my mind after I posted the first video to Youtube. When I read the comments, I found out people misunderstood, even afraid of “Cyborg” and the future. At that moment, I wanted my video to become educative and reflective. People would reflect their attitude of facing the future after they watch my video.

Here’s the short video that I’m introducing my beta project

Before, I was thinking about creating three short videos that suitable for the general public. I decide from now on, each video would have its specific target group audiences and utility function. People could learn different things through my video.
