Virtual reality has been treading water for a long time now. There have been some releases and announcements, but for the most part, the water’s been stagnant. That all may finally change though. Today at Google’s announcement, they revealed Daydream, a VR platform designed with immersive experience and mobile technology in mind. Hundreds of apps and games are incoming, including Harry Potter games, Hulu programming, YouTube channels, and Street View tours. Google’s throwing a ton of weight behind VR technology, so expect some significant advancements to come out of this announcement. But tech’s not the only aspect to this announcement. They also showcased their VR headset, called the Daydream View. It’s a significantly different approach, emphasizing comfortable fabrics over hard plastics and further reducing the distance between the average consumer and VR technology. And the tech’s not going to be proprietary. Other phone manufacturers and tech developers will have access to the Daydream platform, making it even more accessible. Overall, we’re excited. It’s about time VR got some energy back.

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
