How To Shoot and Edit Pro Interior Design Shots With Lightroom

Best Options for Virtual Reality Enthusiasts

Though most of the latest and greatest VR headsets are still in the development or demonstration phase, there are several models that are available now for general use. Best Options for VR Beginners A VR beginner, as defined here, is someone who primarily wants to experience what VR is all about without necessarily having to invest a significant amount of money. Even a life-long techie might find it worthwhile to invest $12.99 for an NFCGuyz Google Cardboard kit. The Google kit works similar to the pricier Samsung Gear, and the software and apps are free. You can however take a step up, and purchase the more durable I Am Cardboard EVA foam model for around $35.00, though you definitely will not look...
