Defying Reality: The Inside Story of the Virtua...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A fascinating exploration of the history, development, and future of virtual reality, a technology with world-changing potential, written by award-winning journalist and author David Ewalt, stemming from his 2015 Forbes cover story about the Oculus Rift and its creator Palmer Luckey. You’ve heard about virtual reality, seen the new gadgets, and heard about how VR will be the next big thing. But you probably haven’t yet realized the extent to which this technology will change the way we live. We used to be bound to a physical reality, but new immersive computer simulations allow us to escape our homes and bodies. Suddenly anyone can see what it’s like to stand on the peak of Mount Everest. A person who can’t walk can experience a marathon from the perspective of an Olympic champion. And why stop there? Become a dragon and fly through the universe. But it’s not only about spectacle. Virtual and augmented reality will impact nearly every aspect of our lives - commerce, medicine, politics - the applications are infinite. It may sound like science fiction, but this vision of the future drives billions of dollars in business and is a top priority for such companies as Facebook, Google, and Sony. Yet little is known about the history of these technologies. In Defying Reality, David M. Ewalt traces the story from ancient amphitheaters to Cold War military laboratories, through decades of hype and failure, to a 19-year-old video game aficionado who made the impossible possible. Ewalt looks at how businesses are already using this tech to revolutionize the world around us, and what we can expect in the future. Writing for a mainstream audience as well as for technology enthusiasts, Ewalt offers a unique perspective on VR. With firsthand accounts and on-the-ground reporting, Defying Reality shows how virtual reality will change our work, our play, and the way we relate to one another. 1. Language: English.

Cinematic Absence
49,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Have we entered the gloaming of the cinematic age? Have Youtube and Facebook driven the final nails in the coffin (first built by television) of the projector and the screen? If so, what ghosts linger in the lobbies, tear the tickets, change the reels? Tsai Ming-liang''s film "Goodbye Dragon Inn" bears witness to this haunting, and within it lies a deep allegory of our own relationship to the movies we watch, how they become us, and we become them. In a time of seemingly infinite media, what portals open when we turn our back on the bright lights, and look to the quiet, the dark, the empty, the absent? Part film history, part textual analysis, and part literary theory, "Cinematic Absence" imagines what might be interpreted from the 2003 masterpiece, and what is at stake in said interpretation, both for audience and auteur.
