I’m totally impressed about these course achievements. It allowed me to meet new people and learn to use the media like never before. What I really liked about the course of Informatics 103 is the great connection between the students and the professor.

What I’ve learned? Honestly, I learned a lot, from technology history, managing a blog, security and even coding which is one of the most I liked. I must say this course really help me because my favorite part of it, which is the final presentation, where I will be talking about Virtual Reality, gave me the opportunity to make contacts with VR software developers with whom right now I’m working with some interesting projects. What I really meant to said is that the course didn’t stay in classroom.

Really must say that Antonio Vantaggiato is an amazing teacher and one of a kind human being.

 I totally recommended this course (Informatics 103) to all students who enters the University of the Sacred Heart. I’m proud to say that I’m waiting to start this journey next fall 2018 with Informatics 115.

Virtual Reality

Virtual reality is a computer-generated simulation of a three-dimensional artificial environment that is experienced as realistic, through sensory stimuli such as sights and sound using a special electronic equipment.

It all started in 1838 when the first stereoscope was invented, using twin mirrors to project a single image. That eventually developed into the View-Master, patented in 1939 and still produced today. The use of the term “virtual reality,” however, was first used in the mid-1980s when Jaron Lanier, founder of VPL Research, began to develop the gear, including goggles and gloves, needed to experience what he called “virtual reality.”

Even before that, however, technologists were developing simulated environments. One milestone was the Sensorama in 1956. Morton Heilig’s background was in the Hollywood motion picture industry. He wanted to see how people could feel like they were “in” the movie. The Sensorama experience simulated a real city environment, which you “rode” through on a motorcycle. Multisensory stimulation let you see the road, hear the engine, feel the vibration, and smell the motor’s exhaust in the designed “world.” Heilig also patented a head-mounted display device, called the Telesphere Mask, in 1960. Many inventors would build upon his foundational work. By 1965, another inventor, Ivan Sutherland, offered “the Ultimate Display,” a head-mounted device that he suggested would serve as a “window into a virtual world.”

The 1970s and 1980s were a heady time in the field. Optical advances ran parallel to projects that worked on haptic devices and other instruments that would allow you to move around in the virtual space. At NASA Ames Research Center in the mid-1980s, for example, the Virtual Interface Environment Workstation (VIEW) system combined a head-mounted device with gloves to enable the haptic interaction. Today’s current virtual reality gear owes a debt of gratitude to the pioneering inventors of the past six decades who paved the way for the low-cost, high-quality devices which are easily accessible. Be sure to visit the VR stations at The Franklin Institute to experience a virtual environment yourself!

Nothing to do, but the Music & the Route!

In this virtual Google journey we will be traveling from the wonderful and unique city of London, UK to Edinburgh, UK.

There are a couple of alternative routes or ways to get to Edinburgh, UK from London. The first and best of all is driving a 1965 Aston Martin DB5 and classic rock on high through A40 to M40 in Denham which last aproximately 40 minutes. Then follow M40, M6 and A74(M) to A702 in South Lanarkshire. After 5 hours and 30 minutes of journey across elegant and wonderful crountryside sceneries take exit 13 from A74(M). Continue on A702. Drive to Walerpoo PI/A1 in Edinburgh.

This journey last 7 hours and 20 minutes aproximately and 417 miles in total. It will be a long journey, so maybe a few stops on the way may be require.

Want to change the route, and the car? Drive a 1962 Jaguar E-Type series 1 convertible and get on M11 in Woodford from A3211 up to exit ramp to Cambridge/Stansted Airport. Continue on M11. Take A1 and A1(M) to A168 in North Yorkshire. Take the A168 exit from A1(M). Get on A1 in Tyne and Wear from A19. Continue to Edinburg and drive to A1.

This route last 7 hours and 23 minutes aproximately and 411 miles in total. As long as the other, you will need to take a few breaks on the way.

Lets Imagine that at 8:00AM you decide to start the trip, so i will take you up to 5:00 or 6:00PM to arrive with a minimun of two quick stops and only 1 day.

Homework #1

  1. How is your life with the web?

I really consider that my life is amazing and wealthy of the many information learned form the web. It has provide me the tools to navigat and learn about many things and topics from an infinite source of global information. The easy of it is that I can explore new things every day and produce my skylls and business online with total freedom.

What I like most of the web is the simplicity of the system, the navigation and the trust that every day I put in it. The web is a result of the beauty of connecting people from all over the world and provide services that help us make our every day. What I dont like about the web is that the people sometimes privide personal information and social medias to a global web that can be saw by many people withouth they even know it, and that can be risk for our safety and privacy.

2. How would your life be without internet?

Technically it will be normal for me, because if I did not know about media or web, what would I worry? In the others hand is obviously that maybe I would not know about a lot of things I already learned on the web. The web is a wealthy information chanel that help us every day, but I’m not saying that we cannot live without it, because like I will say and the true sense tells, without knowing or having experienced, you can not be boring.
