[youtube= One of the most popular features in our latest VR projects has been the Oculus Rift controller-free navigation UI system that uses the player’s focal point to trigger menu options.

Oculus Rift Controller-Free Navigation UI for Architectural Visualization and more - Arch Virtual

We realized early on, especially in architectural visualization projects, that the VR experience is already so immersive that adding the use of a controller to walk is often confusing to non-gamers, and can cause motion sickness if the player moves too much without first taking some time to become assimilated to the VR experience. Using the player’s focal point enables them to easily jump to various locations within the environment, simply by centering their focal point on various menu options. Additional ‘beacon’ targets can be added anywhere in the scene, triggering product animations, or embedded in a 3D model of the building enabling the player to open windows containing more information about an area, or to teleport to various locations on a scaled-down 3D model of the building.

Roland Weigelt. Recently, WebAssembly was announced, a new standard that defines a binary format and execution model for the Web.

With Google, Mozilla, Microsoft and others voicing their support, my first thought was: Wow, so there is actually hope to get rid of JavaScript someday! In this blog post I’ll explain why I think WebAssembly is such a big step in the right direction, even if it’s something that won’t have an immediate impact. What’s the problem with JavaScript, anyway? JavaScript is a programming language that has quirks (see Seven JavaScript Quirks I Wish I’d Known About or JavaScript garden), lacks important features (e.g. proper arithmetic data types) and isn’t type safe (by design).

All this doesn’t matter for JavaScript’s original purpose – writing a few lines of script code. Pie in the Sky (March 14th, 2014) - The Silver Lining Blog.

On parametric polymorphism and JSON serialization

Why another JSON library? Why F#? Is Fleece merely another case of Not-Invented-Here Syndrome? After all, anyone can serialize things easily with something like ServiceStack.Text, for example: class Person { public int Id { get; set; } public string Name { get; set; } } var john = ServiceStack.Text.JsonSerializer.SerializeToString(new Person {Id = 1, Name = "John"}); Amazedsaint's Tech Journal.

Fusing Decision Support Systems Into the Fabric of the Context. Moving toward a circular economy. The circular economy aims to eradicate waste—not just from manufacturing processes, as lean management aspires to do, but systematically, throughout the life cycles and uses of products and their components.

Moving toward a circular economy

Indeed, tight component and product cycles of use and reuse, aided by product design, help define the concept of a circular economy and distinguish it from the linear take–make­–dispose economy, which wastes large amounts of embedded materials, energy, and labor. In the first exhibit of this narrated slideshow, McKinsey alumnus Markus Zils explains how a circular economy works. In the second, he uses the example of a market for power drills to detail four scenarios in which circular-economy principles are applied: In the status-quo scenario, 1,000 power drills are made in China and sold in the European Union. In the refurbishment scenario, 800 drills are sold at the original price, and 200 are refurbished and sold at 80 percent of it.
