The BEST VR Headset in the WORLD - I CAN'T GO BACK!

quote [ This is the Varjo XR3, legit the best VR and XR headset I have ever used. Some of my experiences in this video could be categorized as a life changing experience, especially in the Virtual World. This was one of the coolest devices I have ever used. I want to thank Foxguard solutions for letting me borrow this headset for a while to make a video. ]

I really, really, really, really want to try one of these. The Varjo headsets keep getting better and better.

Humble Bundle is running their Fall VR Bundle with some decent games.

Fanatical also has a VR bundle which is really good given how inexpensive it is.

A few years ago, I built four eight-foot-long handwriting robots.

quote [ Our first year we wrote the same note on every letter, because generating handwriting is tough.
On and off over the next year (2018), I played with handwriting generation.
We started writing labels.
12 labels to a sheet, 7 sheets per robot side, 8 robot sides... A *lot* of unattended runtime! ]

I have no words about this maker's rabbit hole.
