Oculus Go: Our First Jump Into Virtual Reality

Posted on Jun 15, 2018 by Natalie Matthews

You jump into another dimension where it is possible to be another person, from another place, with a different personality, voice, opinion and being; where you are able to reach someone else from across the world in a simple press of a button; where nothing around you is what you could really see.

With the rise of the iPhone, our society has quickly shifted in many respects.

Posted on May 08, 2018 by Natalie Matthews

F8 is Facebook’s annual conference for developers and entrepreneurs that build around and for the site.

Originally created for the digital currency, Bitcoin and Bitcoin trader login option, blockchain was developed as a way to bypass this system and directly connect consumers to their value. Similar to the platform of GoogleDocs, imagine this technology as a shared server where instead of saving a document in Word then sending it to another individual via email or fax, the document is already shared and updated with the other party.
