Cyberpunk Sunday 2.001 Drones, VR and RPGs

The US Navy has started using underwater drones in the Gulf. Currently the plans are to use them for locating and getting rid of underwater mines. However anybody can see a number of other uses for them. Especially with that 100k price tag, which is kind of cheap compared to a lot of other weapons systems. I can see a clever rigger using a handful of these to cause quite a bit of mayhem in a very short period of time.

In this article io9 gives a really good breakdown on VR technologies and the idea of completely immersive computer simulations. Discussing how full the interaction may be, various ways you will be able to tailor your experience and much more. For the net junkies out there this is a must read for a 'where things are heading' lowdown.

VR Theory and thoughts

A little while back CD Projekt RED, the makers of the Witcher game series, made the announcement that they are working on a game based on the RPG Cyberpunk 2020. This of course had a lot of the fans really up and jumping for joy. Well now it appears that the creator of the rpg is working on a new edition to be released as well.

Update of a sort

Yeah I've gotten really far behind on putting anything on here. Have a couple of Be A Better Player articles started but not finished. More than enough links to do Cyberpunk Sunday stuff for months. Not to mention all sorts of ideas pouring though my head and random intervals. However I'm completely out of motivation and the ability to concentrate. But I'll get some stuff up here soon. In the mean time you can find me over on Google + as Peter Amthor or on Twitter as @trulyrural if anybody is interested.
