What is an “Immersive” Virtual Reality Experience? - with Birdly’s Max Rheiner

Max is project head at Birdly, one of virtual reality’s most curious projects. Birdly is a full-body kind of “table” that one lays upon while wearing an Oculus VR headset - and through a combination of arm control (to replicate wings) and fan (to replicate the speed of air in one’s face) - reproduces the experience of flying like a giant hawk.

In this episode, I ask Max about the components of a truly “immersive” VR experience, and about his predictions about the coming decade in VR technology.

Prof Nick Bostrom is widely respected as the premier academic thinker on topics related to strong artificial intelligence, transhumanism, and existential risks. His talks, books, and articles cover all of these topics, and his vocation involves bringing attention and critical thought to these most pressing human issues.

He is founder and director of the Future of Huminity Institute at Oxford, and author of the new book "Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies." In this episode, Nick and I explore the topic of identifying "existential" human risks (those that could wipe out life forever), and how individuals and groups might mediate these risks on a grand scale to better secure the flourishing of humanity in the coming decades and centuries.

Anton Þórólfsson is working on letting you work from "home"... or from the Amazon jungle, or from the moon. Well... not the actual moon, or your real "home," but a virtual one. His company, MURE VR (he sits today as co-founder and COO) is working on allowing indiviuals to interact with all of their computer programs in a totally virtual world thanks to the help of the Oculus Rift.

This would allow a user to strap on a headset and headphones, and escape into whatever virtual environment he or she liked, accessing a potentially unlimited number of "screens" (displays) and computer programs all at once. The task, as you might image, isn't easy, and in this interview, Anton talks to us not only about how the entire idea of "work" might change in the coming decades, but about the technological hurdles that companies like his will have to cross to get there.

Ariel Waldman loves space, and once wanted to work for NASA. Badly. So badly, in fact, that NASA could sense it when they read her letter to them - stating that she wanted to be involved in any way. Though she got to learn about dark matter and black holes, and though she got to send objects into space, she realized she didn't need NASA for this job.

So, she took off to start SpaceHack.org, a site dedicated to getting "regular" people involved in space exploration via disruptive citizen science projects that almost anyone has access to. In this episode we explore the ways that science fiction has (and can continue to) shape the future, and how citizen science is allowing people from around the world to help break ground in science, and get credit for it.

Get More Viral - A Blitzkrieg Interview with Emerson Spartz of Spartz Media

Emerson Spartz is a middle school dropout. Not because he was forced to work on a family farm, or because he moved to a foreign country, but because he wanted to homeschool himself - and his parents permitted the transition. In addition, the 12-year old was already in business and didn't want to wait any longer. 

In 2009, the 22-year-old Spartz founded Spartz Media, creator of - among dozens of other successful websites - www.OMG-Facts.com, which by itself receives 30 pageviews per month. Virality became Emerson's focus, and his company of content creators and data scientists continue to pump out successful site after successful site, all based on psychological and empirical notions of "virality."

In this episode, Emerson goes through a number of quick and immediately useful tips for any startup or organization looking to add "virality" into their marketing efforts.
