Remember that scene in Back to the Future where Marty Jr. was rudely watching TV at the dinner table in giant glasses? Now, you can do that same thing with YouTube and Google Cardboard.
No, this new update doesn’t turn every video into one of those awesome 360-degree videos that you can view in every direction. Instead, this update turns your VR headset into a personal home theater. You can see a virtual screen “floating” in front of your face, no matter where you look.
This is similar to the Netflix virtual theater app that the company released a couple months ago. While it’s little more than a novelty right now, it is a neat way to isolate your viewing experience and have a mini-home theater to yourself. The question is whether you’d really want to sit around with a VR headset strapped to your face just to watch YouTube. But now you can at least find out!

If you haven’t used a Chromebook in a while, they’ve come a long way . But you don’t need to shell out cash for a new laptop just to run Chrome OS. You can install it on nearly any laptop with an application called CloudReady.

Google has partnered with NASA, National Geographic, Khan Academy and other major organizations to teach kids science over the summer. It’s called Camp Google and the first week takes kids underwater.
Virtually, that is. Kids sign on at camp.withgoogle.com to watch videos, participate in activities, and earn badges. After this week’s Ocean Week, they’ll explore space, nature, and music to do things like create space food, grow crystals, and turn a smartphone into a booming stereo.
It’s tough entertaining and educating kids when they’re home all day in the summer, so thank you Google.

One of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen was Spanish Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia in Barcelona. The basilica looks like a giant drippy asymmetrical sandcastle.Read the rest

If you manage people or projects at work, you know it can be tough to get updates from coworkers so you can put all of the pieces together. DailyPulse is a web service that handles the process for you. They email your team with the questions you need answered, collect the responses, and put them together in a tidy package for you.
DailyPulse is a bit like previously mentioned TeamReporter, which does something a little similar. While TeamReporter also asks your team for their updates and builds status reports around them, DailyPulse also gives your team a place to discuss everyone's responses, accomplishments, and updates. Both services are great for making sure you get the responses you need from people when you need them, and they're both great at assembling those responses into a package that's actually useful—you'll automatically get a summary of the day's (or week's, or whatever schedule you choose) events so everyone's on the same page.
The big difference though is that DailyPulse also puts those updates into a webapp that you can your colleagues (or your boss and any other managers on your project) can log in to and make comments on, add notes to, and ask questions about. The biggest benefit is that instead of spending time in weekly status meetings, you can use a service like this to keep everyone up to date on what everyone else is doing without wasting time on conference calls or in meeting rooms. It also gives you a place to get and give anonymous feedback on the project, individual team members, and managers.
Those added features do come with a price though. DailyPulse is $5/user, per month, so you'll have to be judicious about how many people you get to sign up for it. If you're looking for something without the price tag though, we should note that TeamReporter is free. If your company is footing the bill though, and its extra features sound good, DailyPulse is a great option.
