#latergram #ceremonies5x5 #5x5dc - Took my 1st Year @dukeellingtondc Literary Media & Communications students out to explore #publicart in the neighborhood. They scanned the billboard were surprised when they saw my name in the credits. It was a proud moment for me as their teacher. Who says those who can’t teach? I teach by doing. #MakeDo #HollaAtMe (at 14th & Ust NW, Reeves Center Building) - Sojournals Network Mashup

smithsonianlvm: polygondotcom: How to make a VR headset with a pizza box, smartphone and $21 worth of tech Google is bringing virtual reality to Android phones with cardboard — literally. The Cardboard project is Google’s attempt to bring inexpensive VR to its operating system using items you can find around home or buy at a hardware store or order online. Those include actual pieces of cardboard (an extra large pizza box will do), lenses, magnets, velcro, a rubber band and, if you like, an near-field communications (NFC) tag, which will launch Cardboard automatically. Combine those ingredients with a ruler, glue, scissors and an X-acto knife, and you’ve got yourself a makeshift virtual reality headset. Detailed instructions are available on the Cardboard corner of Google’s developer site. (Link to the full story) Google’s Cardboard project is a great summer DIY activity for youth, and an inexpensive way to bring VR experiences into the classroom. With creative, economical solutions... - Sojournals Network Mashup

smithsonianlvm: Featured Video: The Oculus Arcade Immersion 2014 The “Oculus Arcade” was an interactive feature of the Immersion 2014 Summit at LMU that allowed participants to demo the Oculus Rift technology through a range of immersive virtual reality experiences. This interactive component was made possible by OC(Orange County) Virtual Reality Meetup. Member developers who participated in Orange County’s first VR hackathon designed many of the VR experiences demoed in the “Oculus Arcade”. Lots of VR experiences are being developed for the Oculus Rift, and Smithsonian LVM has created a virtual reality version of Céramica de Los Ancestros, an exhibition and online simulation in collaboration with the Smithsonian’s National Museum of the American Indian for exploring artifacts.
