Facebook, the largest social media website in the world announced today that they have purchased the Oculus Rift VR for $2 Billion. This is one of the largest buyouts that has ever been seen for a relatively new company. Oculus VR is a company that created a new headset that allowed for the beginning stages of Virtual Reality. Facebook has purchased this headset not for video games but instead as a teaching tool that will be able to be used in homes as well as schools.
This could be one of the best things that Facebook has ever done. Just imagine that you could teach the young or the old new skill sets through a headset. It’d be a new way of thinking that would allow for information to be processed faster in the human mind while making it more enjoyable to learn those new skill sets.
Facebook released a statement regarding their purchasing of Oculus VR, Stating: “We have purchased Oculus VR in hopes that we will be able to advance this new technology as a teaching tool for any students, may they be young or old. Instead of having to go into your booklet, take down all the notes and process all of that information slowly. You will now to taught the subject, be able to make the software save certain videos from the subjects curriculum and then replay those videos back to you. You could memorize the entire subject within a matter of weeks, this in return will allow for us to gain intelligence at a faster rate.”
Daredevil, one of the most popular comic book characters to ever be created is getting the royal treatment once again but this time it will be on Netflix. Previous to the new Netflix series, Daredevil was a comic book and then became a movie starring Ben Afflek. Daredevil is based around a man who goes blind at a young age, throughout the years he is able to harness his other senses to a super human strength and then begins training physically on an entire new level.
Joe Quesada, the director behind the new Netflix Series gave some insight as to what the new Daredevil Series will be like, saying: “Marvel has planned to create this new Daredevil series like a movie. Instead of having one episode where Matt Murdoch will fight one villain, defeats them and move slightly up in his love life we will have a full season with Matt faces off against one villain and defeats them by a miracle. Throughout the series you will see him progress onwards as a fighter, lover and protector of his city.”
There is no date as to when the new Daredevil series will be released. Marvel or Netflix have yet to release a trailer let alone the name of the actor who will be playing the role of Matt Murdoch. Regardless we know that Marvel takes any project seriously, resulting in an excellent viewing experience regardless of what property it might be. That’s the very reason as to why Agents of Shield is so exciting and popular within one season.”
