2018 was an important year for virtual reality. The hardware is getting better and cheaper. I have bought myself an Oculus Go this year and I think it is great! The development of VR content is also becoming easier and quicker and more fun. Unity 3D is a fantastic tool! But with A-Frame you can develop WebVR for the web that works in almost every modern internet browser! You can not only build VR apps but with the latest versions you can even do augmented or mixed reality, WebXR for the web!
I have built my new year wish for 2019 on Glitch in WebVR with A-Frame with a 3D-model of myself made by FabTabLab in Utrecht. The 3D model was rigged and animated with Mixamo. And the logos and animations were merged in Blender. Ofcourse it works on your phone and Oculus Go too!

This alternative software for the USB Panic Button from Jam has stopped working in Windows 10 so it is finally time for a new version!
This version uses the HidLibrary from Mike O’Brien on NuGet and this made it very easy…
The software depends on Microsoft .NET framework 4.5 which is enabled by default in Windows 10.

Do you know The Get Down on Netflix? It is a musical and colorful tribute to the ’70s hip-hop culture in the Bronx.
I was born in 1970 and the hip-hop and graffiti culture has always fascinated me and I like this TV series very much!
This series is like a cartoon featuring cool famous hip-hop legends like DJ Kool Herc and Grandmaster Flash next to new superheroes like Shaolin Fantastic (Shao 007) and Ezekiel (Books) and the mega cool disco villain Cadillac.
Last year we attended the X’2014 C64 demo party and it was great!
In succession of the 1991 demo we have been working very hard on this X2014 party demo but we have never released it at the party. Finally almost 10 months later I have decided to finish and release it because it’s worth it!
The demo contains some cool C64 inspired 3D animations, graphics and routines accompanied by a great remix of the Ghost’n Goblins Theme by Reyn Ouwehand.
