I sit down in the dilapidated wooden chair, and put on the headset. It’s the twelfth time this week. I’ve gotten really used to Sony’s Project Morpheus, and I love the way it feels. I pretty much just press a button to pull the display closer to my face, and boom—I’m in another world. I just wish there were more…
Yep, it’s creepy.
Look at that picture above. Seriously, have an intense little stare. You’re probably already a little spaced out. Now imagine what would happen if you strapped that picture to your face, and coupled it with equally immersive music.
I just survived a shark attack. I just stole a priceless diamond in an upscale London heist. I did it with Sony's new Project Morpheus headset. It's the best I've ever tried.
Sony's Project Morpheus VR headset looks fantastic but the early prototypes... not so much. This early version of the headset may have offered plenty of the requisite VR headset features, but it did also feature three Sony Move controllers strapped to it, seemingly at random.
It seems like a spaceship arriving to another planet, but it just happened right here on Earth. It's an actual image from the successful Morpheus vehicle test completed today at the Kennedy Space Center's Shuttle Landing Facility. There's great video too.
NASA's Morpheus Lander hovers above the launch pad at NASA's Kennedy Space Center at a free-flight test launch held yesterday afternoon. Hit the jump to see the photo (and video of the launch) in its full glory.
We all have to crawl before we can walk, and NASA's Morpheus lander is no different—well, except for the fact that "crawl," in this case, actually means burst into a pile of flames. But all that's in the past, and NASA's taken to their YouTube and Instagram accounts to show off the absolutely stunning success of the…
NASA is currently working on a vertical landing system. And as you'll see in this video, it's anything but impressive — especially when considering that it fails in the first part of the video, that it's the 24th test, and the damn thing was tethered. Meanwhile, SpaceX is hopping rockets to a height of 820 feet.
Curiosity might be a roaring success so far, completing what must be the most complex remote landing procedure ever conceived, but not everything's going quite so swimmingly at NASA. Watch the first free flight test of the new "eco-friendly" moon lander that's designed to drop cars onto the Moon - it wasn't pretty.
Conventional rocket fuel—mostly ammonium perchlorate and aluminum—is difficult stuff to come by when you're on, say, the Moon. So we'll need to develop flexible alternative fuels if we ever want escape the backwoods of the solar system. Luckily, NASA's green engine test rig, the Morpheus Lander, is doing just that.
What better way to honor a famous character, creature or concept from science fiction or fantasy than to immortalize them with a scientific name? Specifically, the name of a gene.
The 1964 holiday film Santa Claus Conquers The Martians has the distinction of constantly being named one of the worst films ever made. It also contains the acting debut of Pia Zadora, although that may be unrelated to its critical status. Instead this film was all about bringing "freedom" to poor Martian children…
The Morpheus ambient lighting module promises to illuminate your room with all the colors of the rainbow. Looking no different than an ordinary lamp (well, more like an iron, actually), the Morpheus uses custom hardware and software to light up the adjacent walls with your choice of colors. In the middle of winter and…
