The New Reality

Our world and environment is slowly but surely becoming ‘designer-‘ or custom made. This is with the coming of virtual reality, a created environment and a product of advanced technology. Virtual reality traverses wide areas and has varied benefits basing on why exactly it is created in the given context. It has brought real change in the way things electronic are viewed and used.

The 3D television is one of the simplest versions of created environment. The production of programs for this television uses two cameras set apart just like the eyes are positioned. The images are captured very clearly and even the sound is out of this world. When one views the television, only blurred images will be seen as a special set of goggles are needed to make them clear. Many electronics manufacturers are producing these sets with the goggles which come separately. However, compared to other areas virtual reality is taking root, this is just but the tip of the iceberg.

Cloud storage is another invention that has really transformed business practice the world over. A business can store its data in a virtual memory over the internet instead of the traditional server or computer hard discs. Should the information be needed, all one needs is a password and an internet enabled device. One just logs into their accounts and access the information anywhere and anytime. Of course there are many advantages that are associated with cloud storage. A lot of information and data can be stored. One may not need so much investment in terms of the infrastructure as the storage, analysis or any form of processing of data is done in the cloud. The data is quite secure but accessible. The security of the data is constantly and automatically updated so one does not need to worry. Also, compared to physical infrastructure, cloud storage is quite affordable. You are made put in charge of controlling who access your information as you set your own passwords and other settings as you deem fit.

It is in the video games that virtual reality comes to life. Virtual reality headsets are the in thing. Many companies have invested in the headsets giving quite a range of options in line with enjoying the games. Among the companies are Samsung, Sony and Google among others. The headsets present a number of options to the buyer. Some like Samsung gear and Sony Play Station VR are tethered while Google Daydream view is mobile. Sometimes the tethering may limit movement but does not dilute the experience. While the Sony PS VR and Oculus Rift models will limit you to a seat, they still allow you to play almost any game. You may also need to be near a screen or PC set to make this happen. The HTC Vive Stream VR transforms your room into a cube and allows or rather enables you to move around in the course of your game. It however needs real heavy investment in the internet infrastructure. Gaming is never the same experience with the Virtual Reality headsets.

Again, virtual reality has given rise to virtual assistants. These assistants do almost anything from choosing the type of music to keeping schedules and controlling other electronic devices using the same or compatible operating systems. Amazon Echo, Google Home and Siri are some of the virtual assistants in the market.

There is so much more to be talked about in virtual reality and we expect that soon, even better devices are making the virtual even more real and affordably.

Amazon Fire Tablets

For those that are searching for a tablet and don’t want to spend what it takes to purchase a fancy iPad, the Amazon Fire tablet series may be the way to go. They are produced by Amazon, one of the biggest if not the biggest online store (which has just about everything anyone could ever want). The tablet series by Amazon is a great alternative to some of the more expensive tablets out there.

The Fire, Fire HD 8 and Fire HD 10 are all great tablets manufactured by Amazon. They have a decent amount of storage space and a quality camera that makes them great for skyping friends and loved ones. They also have up to 12 hours of battery life which makes them great for traveling and for when people are on-the- go. They are great tablets in a world where these devices typically cost much, much more.

The Fire Tablet Series


The standard Fire model is available at Amazon for just $50, making it one of the most affordable tablets on the market. It comes with the options of 8GB and 16GB of storage, with the 16GB costing just $20 more. A microSD card can provide up to 200GB more storage for those that want to store movies for watching while traveling. It has a respectable 7 hours of battery life, as well. This makes a great gift for family or for children, and the 7” display makes it one of the most pocket-size tablets available on the market.

Fire HD 8

The Fire HD 8 is a great option for those that are wanting a larger screen for when they are watching movies and videos. It’s available in black, blue, pink, and orange. It has bigger storage options, with 16GB and 32GB choices available. The screen size is one of the biggest advantages over the standard “Fire” model, with an 8” display giving it a more respectable screen size. There is a 2MP camera on the rear for taking photos and 720p video, and a front-facing VGA camera on the front for skype calls. It’s on Amazon for $90 and $120.

Fire HD 10

The Fire HD 10 is the largest display available on a tablet from Amazon, with its 10” display putting it a step above either of the smaller tablet. But the biggest advantage of the Fire HD 10 isn’t the screen. Unlike the other tablets by Amazon, this one has a 720p front-facing video camera for Skype calls. The other tablets have a VGA camera which isn’t going to deliver near as good quality of video. The memory options are the same as the Fire HD 8, but there is still the expandable memory option with a microSD card. One of the other big benefits of these tablets is Alexa, the A.I. personality that’s able to assist the user with their questions and needs. The Fire HD 10 is available on Amazon for $230 and $275.

Fire Kids Edition

The Kids Edition of the Fire is still a fully functional Fire Tablet, but it includes a free year of access to all the kids content available from Amazon. It also has a 2-year warranty so that parents can give it to their children without worrying that they will demolish it. It has a 7” display as well, so it’s big enough for kids to enjoy.

Fire HDX 8.9

This tablet isn’t currently available on Amazon, but it’s still the fastest and most powerful tablet they have produced. It has a memory option of 64GB, and better Wi-fi capability and display than the other models. It also weighs only 13.2oz, 34% lighter than the previous models.

Each of these are great tablets from Amazon, for those wanting to have the best tablets at the best price.
