VR social network vTime hits Google Cardboard (Tomorrow Daily 330)

Culture
[MUSIC] Greetings, citizens of the Internet, and welcome to Tomorrow Daily, the best geek talk show in the known universe. I'm Ashley Esqueda, Jeff Cannata is up at GDC checking out all the latest in video games So for now, let's hit the headlines. Sony is generating a lot of buzz at South by Southwest in Austin right now after unveiling some of its Futurelab. The future lab RND division was announced earlier this month and now we're starting to see glimpses of projects from the high tech sink tank. One project nicknamed Anne is described as hands free UI that can deliver audio information like music and other sounds through a device worn around the neck. Another prototype interactive tabletop is a projector that transforms a surface into a [MUSIC] Fully interactive experience. There aren't plans to bring these specific projects to a retail market. But there's a high likelihood we'll see these types of technology integrated into future Sony products. Okay, everybody. Start warning your friends and family that you're scared is going to get addicted to VR. Because now. There's a social network in virtual reality. vTime launched its alpha build last November for headsets like Oculus Rift and the Samsung Gear VR. But now it's officially available for the cheapest VR headset around. Google card board. You'll be able to make a virtual avatar and chat in random location with up to three of your virtual friend. VTIME has over 10,000 users already and will expanded service to every VR platforms including PlayStation VR. By the end of this year. All I'm saying is maybe read Snow Crash before you get really into this idea, just a suggestion. Okay, so since Jeff isn't here, I get to pick which story we talk about on Thursday, so I'm gonna go with virtual reality social networks because this seems like a really dangerous, but also exciting idea and It might not be quite as amazing as we make it out to be in our heads when we first think about it. If you guys wanna get in on the conversation use #HEYTD on Twitter and if we like your tweets we'll include them on the show on Thursday, which is our long episode. All right guys, let's check out our phonetographer of the day. [MUSIC] Our phonetographer of the day today is Andrew, who took this amazing photo with his iPhone 5S. He says, hi guys my name is Andrew, I know I've been sending these photos repeatedly, but it's because I just need some love. These pictures were taken on my iPhone 5S, in Pickens South Carolina at Table Rock Park while enjoying a hike On the trails. I really enjoy the show and I'm always excited to see the new episodes every day when we watch your shows in class. Thank you guys for all you do. Of course you have permission to use the pictures on the show, and as always, be good humans. Here's your love, Andrew. Here it is for you. We're handing it to you through the computer, just take it. [MUSIC] There's your love. If you want some love with your phone-tography, you can send it over to us to be considered for featuring on the show. Tomorrow@cnet.com is the email. Send your picture, give us permission. And also tell us a story, 'cuz we love stories. You can also find us all over social media at Tomorrow Daily.
