What’s it Like, Attending a Memorial in Virtual Reality?

A beautiful write-up of such an emotional virtual reality memorial event for our amazing friend Chris Long.

Film/Gaming bits and bobs

My good friend Christian Long passed away a week ago. I had sent Chris a message a few days before, because I realise that I haven’t been able to say goodbye to him.

Lenovo Mirage Solo Virtual Reality Headset – is it for you?

Hi everyone,

It’s been a while since I was here! I’ve been busying myself with the VR Startup (Pivotal Reality) and learning to upskill myself in the VR dev space too!!!

Having said that, I am conscious that my blog has been getting a tad dusty… So here I am to change all that!

I have created a video to talk about the Lenovo Mirage Solo standalone VR headset. I wanted to share my insight and hopefully help any confused consumers out there 😊

The video is just under 12 minutes long – enjoy!

I will post the How to Cast using Mirage Solo video here once completed. It’s completely up to you whether you would like to follow this blog, my YouTube channel or my Twitter (@TheHappyLass) for news of when that video is available.

Until next time, take care x
