Lucasfilm is making a virtual reality movie about Darth Vader

It’s fairly obvious that VR and AR are going to be a big deal over the next couple of years, and if this is the sort of thing that big media is going to be producing for it, well…sign me up.

“You are the visitor in this story that is happening in and around you, and to a certain extent you might even have some effect on,” Goyer said. “You can pick up things, you can open things. You can push things, you can walk. You can touch characters.” The film will also take place in a “persistent” world, that cycles through day and night, and continues to go on even after the “visitor” has gone through the story for the first time.

Introducing OpenCellular: An open source wireless access platform

We have implemented an access platform that can support a wide variety of wireless network standards, from 2G and LTE to Wi-Fi access points. Anyone can customize the platform to meet their connectivity needs and set up the network of their choosing, in both rural and urban areas. For instance, the system, due to its on-board computing and storage capacity, can be configured as network-in-a-box or purely as a cellular access point.

Meet OnHub, a new router from Google that’s built for all the ways you Wi-Fi.

Google is getting further into the hardware business with OnHub, but it makes perfect sense given their moves towards more robust Internet-of-Things support. Of course, it also means they could theoretically monitor all traffic moving through the router.

Theoretically.
