FROM THE BLOG / First 24 Hours With HoloLens

FROM THE BLOG / The Politics of Technology: Autonomous Vehicles
If the steering wheel goes away, does somebody in an autonomous vehicle have to be sober when it's operating?

Anne Frank's story to be told in new virtual reality film
From Entertainment Weekly: Anne Frank’s story is one of the most well-known of all time, and now a new virtual reality film will enable the public to experience it like never before.

Chinese Temple Employs Robot Monk

Print a clone of yourself and send it to mom for Mother's Day
From Groupon: Your busy schedule means you can’t always be with Mom for Mother’s Day, but thanks to this unique Mother’s Day gift, you can still show her you care. Unlike busy adult children, life-sized 3D-printed models do not have hectic schedules. That means they’re there when Mom needs them most: all the time. And while your mom can’t claim this life-size replica of you as a dependent on her taxes, she will be able to take it to the movies, drive in the carpool lane, and tell it all about how Darlene is really more of a friend than a hairdresser.
