Have you ever wanted to visualize your #SingleCell data in virtual reality? Now you can! We are happy to present! You just need a cheap cardboard #VR visor (~$8) and your phone to upload and explore your data in VR! Preprint here
This fun project was made possible by @davidsteintist, @hd7chen, @vinyard_m, and a fantastic team at #HackSeq19.

Upload your data at, scan the generated QR code on your phone, pop it into the cheap cardboard VR visor and you are ready to fly!
#SinglecellVR supports clustering and trajectory inference results from Scanpy, Episcanpy, PAGA (from @fabian_theis lab), Seurat (from @satijalab) and STREAM (from our lab!) thanks to the companion scvr package (pip install scvr) which allows you to convert them in a single step!

Project 3: Ginty's Goggles

In collaboration with the tissue viability team @NNUH, this 360-degree video based #simulation experience gave users the opportunity to gain a one-to-one tutorial with an experienced educator #VR #tech

More information below...
2. This project aimed at improving accessibility to high quality #meded, using an innovative but immersive approach. It was simple, but impactful, and is fully scalable to provide trust wide (or even further reaching) training on an important topic - the skin assessment
3. For editing, to improve educational value, I used simple titles and pictures overlaid onto the 360 spherical video using adobe premiere pro. For interactivity, we used pause points to get users to complete relevant documentation on the assessment they had just witnessed.

very good, @VladDavidzon:… - thank you, man, for hearing me and even listening.

small thread here on #BabynYar.
#Khrzhanovsky's record of approaching the totalitarian past by re-creating it in the most visceral manner raises a disturbing question.
Is vividly bringing the aesthetics of #Nazi terror on the very ground where it had taken place an appropriate way to honor victims?

Karel Berkhoff — the Western world’s foremost expert on #BabynYar and the memorial’s former lead historian —resigned, he compared the project to a Shoah theme park.
Over several months Mr. Berkhoff was joined by a majority of the staff, a paralyzing turnover...

[Thread: Book review] If you work in, are interested in, or want to know where technology is headed next you MUST READ Infinite Retina by @Scobleizer and @IrenaCronin /1 #spatialcomputing #augmentedreality #AR #VR #XR…
So first, I should say I intended to blog a review but there's WAY too much good stuff in the book for one post. Instead, I'll review it by way of a few posts that lift off key sections of the book. Stay tuned. /2
I honestly believe Infinite Retina will be the book that all the other books will refer back to. It lays a marker in the sand. It says: here's where we've been, here's where we are, and here's where we're going. It will be the definitive snapshot of this time... /3

¿Qué aplicaciones de Realidad Aumentada #AR y Realidad Virtual #VR podemos usar para CREAR contenido en #educación?

Si te interesa CREAR y no solo interactuar con contenido ya creado, este es tu 🧵⬇️ #hilostic

En este hilo vamos a ver cómo la #AR y la #VR pueden ser herramientas para CREAR contenido con nuestros alumnos/as y hacerles protagonistas de su aprendizaje. Ideal como producto final de un #ABP (Aprendizaje Basado en Proyectos).
Yo tengo experiencias inolvidables de creación de contenido con mis chicos/as.

"Apadrina un monumento" fue un ejemplo de ello.


Diseñamos una web y una aplicación móvil con las investigaciones que realizamos de la Península de la Magdalena.

Apple Doesn't Care About Augmented Reality: Here's Why #augmentedreality #AR #VR #MagicLeap #spatialcomputing #MixedReality…
A post by @Scobleizer tipped me off to a key point: Apple will want to disrupt glasses.
But think about this further: Apple sold $10B of wearables, disrupting 13% of watch market. The eye glass market is $138B. If Apple grabs 13% of that, they have wearables revenue that's double their current haul. /3

En un post anterior mencionaba que creo que Ecuador debe enfocarse hacia el desarrollo agrícola, y tener como objetivo que en 20 años seamos la más grande potencia agrícola del s. XXI, en función de los ratios de producción y márgenes o ganancia.
Para conseguir un #ECUADORPOTENCIAAGRICOLA debemos hacer cambios sociales, políticos, culturales, empresariales y tecnológicos.
De esto último tratarán éste y los hilos futuros, de cómo usar las nuevas tecnologías para desarrollar el sector agrícola del país.
El objetivo es incentivar a los empresarios, gobierno, inversionistas, hacia la explotación de estos nuevos recursos.
En 2050, se necesitará un 50% más de alimentos en el mundo.

I’m thoroughly enjoying #HalfLifeAlyx but I get that fighting gory monsters in #VR does not appeal to many players. Still, the game is gorgeous & I wish more people can enjoy it. If you’re feeling FOMO but want to skip the scary bits, I’m keeping track of the non-violent parts /1
FWIW it’s taken me a few years of developing/playing in #VR to kinda get used to jump scares & monsters coming me with IMMERSION. Sometimes I just want to admire the artistry of HL:A in peace without a headcrab threatening to mount my face 😐 /2
Fortunately, you can enjoy the entire opening sequence & reach Russell’s office without encountering anything too scary. Marvel at the details! The architecture! The floor tiles! The plants coming through cracks in the ground! The pigeon! The teacups! /3

Been thinking about personal space given recommendations for increasing it to 2 meters -- and this paper by @AleAliSousa and others came to mind: How do we perceive interpersonal distance if there is a glass barrier?…
Of course if it were not transparent, you might not even know someone is there unless the barrier is small and you can detect them with another sense. But the distance we are comfortable with does seem like it should be somewhat smaller with a barrier -- maybe not face-to-face!
Non-human animals show this too -- as seen at a number of zoos where a number of other great apes will come up close and interact at a transparent barrier

And now we have @annatoledano on ‘Resurrecting Lost Objects in the Natural History Museum’ #ResurrectingObjects #MuseumTwitter #BSHSGlobalHist
@annatoledano 1/11 #Museums aren’t forever. Might seem counterintuitive at 1st, but decay, loss, destruction are the norm for objects, not the exception. A challenge for #twitterstorians is to tell stories of lost things from other sources and via new methods #publichistory #BSHSGlobalHist
@annatoledano 2/11 Lost museums are easy to remember. Recreations of @JenksMuseum, @harvartmuseums’ philosophy chamber, @hmns’s cabinet of curiosities focus on bringing to life the whole rather than the part. But the source material often shows individual specimens too 🐊🐡🦜🦞 #BSHSGlobalHist The Houston Museum of Natur...

Je n'ai pas oublié ce thread ! J'vais d'ailleurs bientôt rajouter quelques nouveautés. En attendant, @humble Bundle propose un petit pack spécial #VR : Cosmic Trip, Smashbox Arena, Gorn, Budget Cuts, Space Pirate Trainer, Superhot VR et Moss pour 13,50€ !
@humble Je suis limite chaud de le prendre, et je pense que je vais le faire, mais #Stormland (développé par @insomniacgames) est actuellement à -25% sur l'Oculus Store, donc à 29,99€. C'est compatible #OculusRift et #OculusRiftS.…
@humble @insomniacgames J'ai craqué.😅 Les promos sont assez rares sur le store Oculus, donc autant en profiter. Image

1/So there was lots of talk at @AACNursing #AACNdoc20 re: #Nursing #PhD pipeline, getting folx esp prelicensure students ‘excited’ about #nursingscience & the #BStoPhD

I totally revamped our #nursingresearch & #innovation course @UMassAmherst last fall to do just that

Thread ⬇️
2/ I told the Asst Dean when I took it on that regardless of the learning objectives for the course I had only 1 GOAL:

That by the end of the semester, these students would be EXCITED!-or at very least, just a little bit CURIOUS-about a career in #nursingscience & #innovation
3/ A note about context: This was a course of ~85 Accel BS students, taught in an urban campus that is geographically ~40mins drive from main @UMassAmherst campus, in the . The classroom assigned had no windows. Class ran 8am-1030am Weds, before more courses. I say this b/c....

An empty arena accessible in virtual reality style & accessible to a merchandise stand with stock currently available. Whhhhaa does that even mean? Any world arena that can be cloud stored for mobility-challenged folks planning but easy access in #VirtualReality no line for goods
Who else, but for those who could never access an arena, be thrilled by the #VirtualReality presentation of such with options to mix and match merchandise / @WWEShop on a virtual merch stand. Save and change up favorite arrangements, lights, sound envmt for simulated best merch.
@WWEShop I'm not talking about making @WWEShop a part of @2K @WWEgames although for some reason, the company has never tried. I'm talking a #WebAR ( style disability friendly standard VR map (think Google Maps for arenas) for merchandise with languages & styles...

Given that @WhereThoughts Go just launched, I wanted to create a thread showing a little bit about the process behind creating it & how messy making games can be😛

This is what the first 3-week prototype looked like: a room where people could say anything as an audio orb! 🎙️
I didn't know what this project would become at this time, but I was really intrigued. But I also immediately realized that people wouldn't say interesting things unless they were asked to. 🤔

So I made prompts! And then I made them physically reactive, which felt amazing. 🤾‍♂️
So now I needed to create levels! But I had never, EVER made a 3D world before. 😨

So I used my graphic design experience to create posters of what I wanted each level to FEEL like. The plan? Do whatever I could to reach that feeling 🤞 This kept things open and the pressure low

It's poetic how a company named after the Roman god of beginnings, gates, transitions, time, duality, doorways, passages, and endings closes at the end of a decade. Sad news, but as one door closes another one opens, and the dream of an open Metaverse will live on. #VR
@babylonjs has Microsoft
@aframevr has Mozilla
@playcanvas has Snap
@threejs_org has Google
#AmazonSumerian has Amazon
@officialjanusvr had no large company behind it, yet what they've accomplished is astounding by any measure /2
The fundamentals are webpages as rooms, and hyperlinks as portals. It's inspired by Snow Crash since the beginning, next gen 3D internet. There is view-source to edit the rooms in real-time with the built-in code editor, or no-code via drag n' drop.

[Thread] Comme j'ai un #OculusRiftS depuis fin mai 2019. Cela fait donc quelques mois et j'ai déjà testé un paquet de choses. Donc j'vais faire un petit thread (en plus des possibles tests sur @Factornews), histoire de vous donner les bons tuyaux.
Evidemment, il y aura des jeux, des expériences, des vidéos, du payant, du gratuit, du vieux, du neuf, bref, un peu de tout. De toute manière, lorsque l'on fait l'acquisition d'un casque de VR, tout est plus ou moins nouveau :)
Je viens tout juste de sortir de #WolvesInTheWalls de #FableStudio. C'est dispo par ici gratuitement (…) et il faut compter une petite heure pour terminer l'histoire, inspirée d'une nouvelle de #NeilGaiman. C'est vraiment chouette !

1. Epiphanies!!!! Get an Epiphany right here.

The Big Bang occured when quantum computing came into existance. Quantum computers will/do have the ability to create a VR that is impossible to differintiate from "real" reality.
How many simulations are "running" in our reality right now? Now consider that eventually the Qantum VR world will make it possible for you to finally find out what would have happenned if you had chosen to:
Invest that money to start my company.
Decided to use the line "Luke, I am yoir Father" rather than "No, I am your Father"
Use Magic Mirror on the wall instead of: "Mirror Mirror On The Wall"
Give Scarecrow a gun in forrest scene
Give C3po a silver leg from the knee down.

1/ Obviously, whether anyone buys/sells depends on goals, risk tolerance, situation, etc -- but I believe $FB is a good investment and will beat the market over next 5 years. Whether it's a moral company or beneficial to society, I'll leave for others to debate. (cont)
2/ Despite all the headlines and FUD (fear, uncertainty, and doubt), DAUs and MAUs have held steady in North America, and grown elsewhere, past 2 years, demonstrating the incredible power of its platforms' network effects.

In 2019 Q2:

DAUs 1.59B, +8% YOY
MAUs: 2.41B, +8% YOY
3/ Let's assume the negative headlines never stop, and $FB takes its place among other "sin" stocks w/ tobacco, alcohol, and gambling. This will perpetually suppress valuation, but there's plenty of reason to believe it does not spell doom for investors. (cont)
