SERIES START ON 6/1 ON VBS TV
In this edition of Motherboard, VBS tours Electroboutique, the electronics production company cum roving cyber-art kiosk of Russia's leading non-pornographic artist, Alexei Shulgin. Shulgin hasn't been hip to the internet from its very beginning, but he's definitely been onboard since at least the Compuserve days. In the early 90s, he was one of the first
artsy types to adopt the then-brand-new World Wide Web as a medium, creating web pages filled with maddening arrays of random-seeming pictures and text blocks and hidden
links to games and secret files and similarly weird and frustrating link pages, as well as helping curate the work of his net-art contemporaries. Shulgin was also the organizer of the
world's first international exhibition of people's computer desktops. These days his work has shifted slightly offline and into creating weird electronic fantasy objects such as the
Super-IBR Real Virtuality goggles, which you wear to help make your actual-reality look like crappy VR. Shulgin also claims to have formed the world's first cyberpunk rock act when he started his MIDI cover band 386DX in 1998.

This demonstration video discusses and shows the features of the VR3 Dive Computer. This scuba diving computer is an open circuit computer with the optional upgrade to closed circuit. It has an easy to read font and only two buttons which makes it very user friendly. There are no lockouts due to decompression violations during or after a dive. It offers up to 60 hours of dive logging and up to 99 levels of decompression. One notable feature is the dive plan mode; you enter the gases, depth, and time, and the unit will calculate a list of deco stops. It is fully programmable with up to 10 gases which can be switched at any time during the dive. It also features a user changeable AA battery. This computer will meet any and all of your diving needs.

You´ll never have to worry about changing batteries either; it comes with a rechargeable lithium ion battery and a charger that plugs into the wall. It is depth rated to 1000 feet.
omputer Generated Holographs in the Sojourn Trilogy by Robert P. Fitton
This is a screencaptured video from scenes of NUX Worlds. These video fragments show the beginning stages of development of NUX worlds. It's rather a 3d illustration of some basic principles which we suggest for the beginning.
The main thing we see here is openness and decentralization of the project in it's functioning, which would in effect give the universality.
Perhaps even a name "virtual worlds" is too narrow for it, "networked 3d environment" - too technical...
Technically today already exists a possibility to organize it using a "peer-to-peer" model. It means the ability of working of network of any size without a central server. There also exists necessity of some unification, so it would be easy to travel and communicate in within all NUX-Worlds.

Talk about disappearing down the video rabbit hole and coming out the other side. Slope Views is a company that's cool beyond cool. Slope Views shoots video with an 11-lens spherical camera. The video is recorded onto separate hard drives and stitched together digitally to create an interactive 360-degree video--which means you can look at a ski resort trail map--and ski or snowboard the map online in any direction or location you want. You can look up or down the slope, to the sides of the trail, you can look at the trail from the lift--it's all one hell of a ride. The technology for the user is mouse click & drag--unless you have the special glasses that let you see the scene right in front of your eyes and change direction merely by moving your head one way or the other. Jack me into the matrix, dude. This is so William Gibson. But without the violence or Keanu Reeves. Learn more--and try out a 360-degree spherical trail map video for yourself--at *******slopeviews****/onsnow-beta/

We are 'tonux.formation'. This is a screencaptured video from scenes of NUX 3d virtual environment, largest project we ever had. This are the beginning stages only. It is supposed to result in a 3d virtual environment, where people would be able to communicate, have houses, visit each other's parties, compete in virtual races, etc. All houses, roads, vehicles, landscapes, these videos and even music — all here is made by us from zero.
We are the 'tonux.formaion' more about us on *******www.myspace****/tonux.media This is a screencaptured video from scenes of NUX 3d virtual environment, largest project we ever had. This are the beginning stages only, there are even no plants, all the more visual effects like in commercial games. But NUX won't be a game, it has to be a 3d virtual environment, where people would be able to communicate, have houses, visit each other's parties, compete in virtual challenges, create music, graphics etc. All elements as houses, roads, vehicles, landscapes, and these videos, even music — all here is made by us from zero...
