Virtual Reality will allow this man to live someone else’s life for a month

Virtual reality is getting better and better, with companies such as Facebook, Samsung, Google and others growing more interested in offering such entertainment options to customers in the future. But one artist is already determined to push his limits and experiment virtual reality in a completely different way — and he’s looking for your help to make it possible.

Mark Farid wants to wear a VR headset for 28 days and experience life events as lived by another person. To make it possible, he needs to raise £150,000 (around $234,557) on Kickstarter in the coming month.

Kickstarter Anonabox Tor Router Scam

The Anonabox Tor browser might be a huge hoax despite topping $500,000 on Kickstarter

The Anonabox Tor browser might be a huge hoax despite topping $500,000 on Kickstarter

Anonabox is a tiny Wi-Fi router that’s supposed to bring Tor-grade encryption to all online activity performed on a computer connecting to the Internet through the device. The gadget has already taken Kickstarter by storm, raising well over $500,000 in just a couple of days from more than 7,700 backers, thus significantly topping its original $7,500 goal. However, the device appears to be a huge hoax, as its creator is simply showing off a gadget on Kickstarter that’s identical to a regular Wi-Fi router that’s already sold on Alibaba for around $20, failing to explain the similarities in a professional manner.

Chromecast’s powers may soon extend to the realm of online games

Google’s Chromecast is an incredibly intuitive take on the set-top box, but it has its limitations. For example, it’s not much of a games console, but Concept96 hopes to change that with its very first casual game designed specifically for the Chromecast. In its Kickstarter campaign, Concept96 is asking for just £1000 (~$1600) to build Buzzb, a multiplayer quiz game that lifts videos and music from YouTube, Soundcloud and other online sources. More →
