One of the guys in my office brought one of these in a few weeks back, and I looked up to see everyone with their face in a box looking around the office :) Needless to say, I was pretty impressed once I actually tried it!!
ten dollars super cheap or free because you can make it. Not a diy person so I asked for this for Xmas and if I don't get it...it is only 10$ I get it now before it goes up in price!
@DanWest so true, I had not even thought of that....truly ingenious. If I were a developer, I definitely would be onto this. I am really looking forward to hearing about updates with VR applications. I'm really looking forward to try the video one, it looks amazing.
@TechAtHeart I think the options are vast. And, making this accessory so affordable via Cardboard construction is ingenious, as well. historically, Virtual Reality had been insanely expensive to access and own. This option opens up cheaper production of VR applications for developers and must easier adaptation for consumers.
How'd you like it? I looked on Amazon to purchase one, yesterday.

10 Mistakes Dudes Make In Their Dating Profiles
Don't pretend like you're not on the dating apps: Tinder, Bumble, Grindr whatever. I don't know what you do when the lights are off, but that's alright, but let me help you succeed. Nobody knows what makes people swipe right. It could be your look, your eyes, your hair, your "about" section. Perfecting these things take time, and we all know we don't want to admit that we like to impress people, but newsflash: we do. So, without further ado here are a few tips I've picked up in my journey to right-swiped-ness. 1. You're not honest. Nobody is going to respect an about me section that looks like this: "Hiii my name is David, I'm 6' 3'', I'm a professional basketball player and an Oxford scholar. I'm rich, fit and I don't QUIT! Right swipe for an intellectual conversation! XO" STOP. YOU'RE NOT REAL. COME ON. 2. Your profile picture isn't even you. In the immortal words of Brendon Urie: "I fell in love with your profile picture, but you look nothing like your profile pic gurl." If you clearly jacked a profile picture from a celebrity or someone else, people will know. I matched with this dude who clearly jacked his picture from Bo Burnham, a comic. And I was like "That's definitely a picture of Bo Burnham". He never responded. 3. You only have group photos. I have a rule: if you're in a group photo, it's an automatic left swipe, because like....WHO ARE YOU? 4. Your bio is blank. AGAIN WHO ARE YOU??? Come on, do a little bit of research, some introspective stuff. What are your interests? What do you like to do. Words can do a lot! 5. You're wearing hats / sunglasses in all of your photos. SERIOUSLY, STOP HIDING, WHAT DO YOU LOOK LIKE? To say that looks aren't important is just dumb. Like, get over yourself and face the music. Tinder is about a first impression, and yours is like...shrouded in mystery. 6. Your bio says "I'm not an asshole." You're clearly an asshole. If you have to tell someone that you're not a jerk...come on dude. Come on. 7. You confess that you're "self employed." Unless you're the CEO of a company, it's safe to say that you don't have a job. Sorry, left swipe. It might be harsh, but fix that shit. I'd rather it say, "I'm a tortured artist, and I'm working on my dream." Bam. Right swipe. 8. You're in pictures with lots of chicks who are really hot. I don't want to compete with your harem. Left swipe. 9. You're a creep after we right swipe. Yes this is beyond the profile, but your first message is very important in continuing a relationship online. Don't get me started about unsolicited "pictures" or messages that talk about...you know, inappropriate things. Just make sure that you're getting to know someone for the right reason, and your success rate will skyrocket. 10. If you're honest, personable and genuine in your messages after we right swipe you, you'll have no problem snagging a date. Seriously, all of this aesthetic stuff aside, just be yourself. Women love to be able to talk and hang around someone who actually cares about what they say, and wants to be with them for more than their looks. You'll get there. Just make sure that you're contacting people for the right reasons, and if at all possible...please refrain from sending us pictures of your things. We don't want that. Seriously. It's not cute. That's all I got, happy swiping.

[Rick & Morty] A POKEMON R&M GAME IS COMING!
Attention, Rick & Morty fans, Pokemon otaku, and the closeted nerds who love both! Earlier today, Adult Swim Games senior producer Chris Johnston announced officially on Twitter that the company will release a 'Rick & Morty' game fashioned in the style of the popular 'Pokemon' RPG series. Want to know what that looks like? I got you. Introducing POCKET MORTYS - where you are Dimension C-137 Rick Sanchez and you get to battle your Morty against animals, space creatures, and OTHER Mortys! (You sometimes even get to battle other Ricks!) The game will be available on January 14 as a FREE DOWNLOAD for mobile devices, so those of you feeling some horrible hiatus-induced R&M withdrawal can subject Morty to possibly imminent death - just like the REAL Rick!** (** Rampant alcoholism and stutter not included.) SO MANY MORTYS. SO MANY FEELINGS. Anyway, I just wanted to share the amazing/nerdiest news. I was GOING to ask if you guys were going to download it as a discussion question, but let's be real - WHY WOULDN'T YOU?! ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR VERY MIND?! Anyway, big-ups to the Rick & Morty fan club. If you're not rolling with us yet, well, let's just say you're missing out on a party. @odayja @TurtleyTurtles @YarabiStein @ClaireRedfield @blackvelveteen @SethScarlett @addri @shamwowpow @SarahRoot @AGale @InVinsybll @InPlainSight @Jason41 @TylerOrtega @quietone @Ziran @Ng98 @clobbersaurus @ButterflyBlu @LilianaZeferino @JhayBee @CenaSenpai @Stoneyy @balloonz3 @RocioNaranjo @gayalchemy @SeanMcintosh @JonathantheAwes @verolovesanime @yaakattackk @BlueStar2222 @VanessaStamps @RogerMcghee @DerrickAldana @AndrewHondras @AleciaReedy @Shilolobun @mackenzieorr186 @BlackoutZJ @GrowingArt @SoneForever @11cody @Esarosa @RinOkumura53 @CurtezWillaby @MajahnNelson @babygirldiva @shikamaru @isssc1100 @ZeeStorm @kbecker @najalong1998 @Meeshell @Beckm82 @PiggSnaps @OtakuChick20 @JoshMcMeans @HappyLulie @JJthealphamale @TiffanyWallace @Ash2424701

Emojis Are Not Made The Same
Not all devices are alike. Apple, Android, and Windows, to name a few, are very different operating systems and that key difference also makes for very different variations of emojis. The most popularized Unicode Consortium, or the body that selects which emojis will make their public debut, is the Apple version. They are used in marketing campaigns, commercials, apps, texting, food delivery, etc. However operating systems like iOS, Android, Windows, Blackberry, Samsung, LG, etc. don't always have the same variations of emojis that the general public is accustomed to. This leads to an ultimate dilemma, emojis are basically a language all their own and somehow they are getting lost in digital translation. Thanks to Yahoo tech, a comprised list of varied emojis from device to device: 1. Woman With Bunny Ears You may recognize this emoji normally as the Bunny twins, tap-dancing girls, showgirls, or any of the other various nicknames. However when you transfer over to Android, you'll be in a surprise that the emoji becomes a yellow gumdrop looking face with a brown wig and bunny ears. The dynamic duo is no longer, which probably leads to some confusion at Halloween for Android users who are curious as to when there was an emoji of two Woman With Bunny Ears. 2. Colored Hearts This one is all about design. Apple keeps the hearts very uniform, vibrantly colored, and as basic as can be. For Android, the emojis hold a lot more meaning while also being somewhat cheesy. There is practically no color variation and I don't even know what to think about the fuzzy heart. Emojis are supposed to be playful and I think Android really missed the boat on this one. 3. Watch Obviously iOS looks classier but I am definitely a bigger fan of Android for some reason. I think sometimes less is more and I think it translates well in this instance. After all, a watch is a universal symbol so it's really hard to mess that up between devices. If anything, the emojis from device to device just show a different kind of watch that is solely exclusive to it's own device which seems cool in this example. 4. Eggplant You know exactly what this means if it's sent in iMessage. And you know exactly how hilarious this emoji can be because let's be honest, there is really no everyday use for an eggplant so you might as well spice it up a bit if you know what I'm aiming at. Now as for Android, it's a poor example of an eggplant to begin with but there is no way that it'd ever be used for alternative purposes within messaging. Just no way. 5. Slice of Pizza Okay Android wins on this one. The iOS version looks like a horribly designed emoji that is trying way too hard to be life-like. I appreciate the pic-art look of Android's emoji in this comparison. However, Dominos Pizza is using the iOS emoji in their brand as you can order a pizza now just sending that emoji. After all, that's pretty clever but the pizza emoji could get a generic facelift. 6. Rowboat This is a BIG difference. iOS looks certainly more appropriate and attractive on an interface. The Android immediately signals a date instance which could be totally misconstrued. Also Android needs to keep up with the times as emojis no longer have one option -- with LGBT and racial skin tones being introduced, their emojis need to be updated. Emojis are great because they include everyone and the rowboat needs the same. 7. Glowing Heart Either way, they both accurately depict what you're trying to show. Personally I like the iOS version more however the Android heart isn't horrible. A heart is a heart no matter how you dress it up. Good work to both. 8. Pistol/Gun Windows is the only operating system that doesn't include a gun that looks like iOS. Instead they've opted for a less serious space gun that could easily be more appropriate for Star Trek than anything else. With weapon emojis being taken more and more serious in the media, Windows will have to figure out how to not cause any trouble for its users who may be using their version of the gun emoji playfully while it will be translated into a more serious message. 9. Love Hotel Well to be honest, I've thought the 'H' on iOS stood for hospital and the heart symboled health. Apparently that's the exact opposite of what it meant. Windows does a much better job at representing this but they are both confusing. It wouldn't have killed them to spell out "hotel" on the building, you know. 10. Mobile Phone We get it, you love your own phone. 11. Donut Hmmm these are all very stereotypical of the interface they appear on. To be honest, Windows looks the least like a donut and I personally am not a fan. Android does a pretty good job and iOS is the most life like. I guess this one boils down to pure preference but it should be understood between each device fairly easily. I guess Windows doesn't like chocolate frosting. 12. Alien Monster Well these have very different connotations from the get-go. For iOS, most believe this emoji is a representation of an arcade game that you use with a joystick. For Android, however, it's actually alien monster that looks like an evil version of Pearl from Finding Nemo creepily ready to say "Awww you guys made me ink muhahahahahha!". We have an alien emoji already in iOS, why do we need this one? 13. Tennis Either way, they fit the bill and do a nice job at symbolizing. 10 for 10 on both.
Mystic Messenger fans?
Hey Guys! I'm going to explain this app as I am playing the game ^3^ So here is some basics if anyone wants to play. (and what I know as of right now, no spoilers in this card please) When you first load the game you can only pick casual story, where you can unlock either, Yoosung, Zen, or Jaehee. In the game you can collect hearts to give you a hourglass or gain an hourglass by the characters. (or of course buy them with money, but I am poor) Once at 80 hourglasses, you can spend them on unlocking deep story, which you can find out what is up with 707 and Jumin! The game is a dating Simulator game. You have 11 days to complete all your emails, and during this time you find out what character you will end up with at the end, IF YOU make the right decisions. The Emails are clients you are trying to invite to a party, hosted on the 11th day. What makes this game different from others is, you can receive emails, phone calls, text messages, and also involve yourself in groups messaging chats. You can also see if you have miss calls from a character and use 5 hourglasses to call them back. (doesn't mean they will always answer though TT..TT) Whats really cool about this game is you can click their cute little faces and see what is going on with them, it's profile pictures and status updates! You can also receive photos throughout the game and they are saved automatically, so you can go back during the game and after the game to look at them! A cool thing this game offers is the save and load feature. Let's say you're switching phones and don't want to start over; don't have too with this game. Just sign in and load where you last left off. On the 11th day (the last day) you get to be with the one you love on that round. It's quite cute I must add. I've personally been playing this game for 25 days! I'm on my 3rd ending and having so much fun keeping up with everyone's stories. โ™กโ™กโ™กโ™กโ™กโ™ก I'll start posting spoilers in my next card about my first time around. Until then here is Jaehee upset about all this damn work!
