The Gear VR is a lot of fun, but like all current VR headsets, it suffers the screen door effect.” Samsung’s compatible phones have extremely high-resolution displays, yet pixels (and the gaps between them) become visible when the screen is an inch from your face. Adjusting focus on the headset using the rotating wheel up top is easy, but it’s difficult to avoid tinkering with it because things never look as crisp as you wish.
The Gear VR can broadcast game audio through the phone’s speakers, but that’s going to make for a lousy experience. The earbuds that came with your phone will be a step up from that, but, if you have access to them, a quality pair of cans (those are Sennheiser Momentums you see above) will crank your sense of presence up to 11 in the Gear’s virtual worlds.
When a civilization crumbles, it begins to have many lose ends, it buckles, shakes either implodes or explodes unto itself and despite itself. There are many ideas that are purported to be the reason for the state of affairs in our country. There are those counter thoughts that say it has much further genesis, and where it’s at, is no more different from whence it originated.
Old-school is back and it is back with a bang. Vintage, retro, whatever you want to call it, it seems to have been a huge influence in 2014 and is predicted to be an even bigger one in 2015. Don’t think 50’s and 60’s though, because retro graphic design is poised to focus more on elements form the 80’s and 90’s like iconic brand motifs and early computer graphics.
