    35Foot Tall Straw Dalek
    The UK is going crazy for Daleks as the fiftieth anniversary of Doctor Who approaches. It's the creation of an ice cream shop in Cheshire called Snugbury's, which does giant straw sculptures every year:
    The Dalek standing out in the Hurleston field is not likely to exterminate passers-by, but is sure to delight young and old as the Doctor Who series celebrates its 50th anniversary.
    Hundreds of visitors have already flocked to marvel at the 35ft creation, which weighs in at little over six tonnes.

    "This was the idea that was suggested most by customers, particularly with the anniversary in mind.
    "The Royal baby was a contender too, but this was the most popular choice, and we thought it would look pretty cool too."
    Snugbury's has been erecting its giant straw sculptures for more than 10 years, but this one is by far the most advanced yet.
    It features two fully movable parts - the head and the gun - and also includes audio.

    Paperdude VR rides into the neighborhood with Oculus Rift

    Globacore, a creative technology company, they bring the new Paperdude VR game using next generation virtual reality headset the Oculus Rift combined with a real bike and Microsoft Kinect motion controller. Dubbed Paperdude VR, this work-in-progress is a first-person homage to Atari's 1984 classic, Paperboy. Watch the video of it in action. In the video, a player rides a stationary bike and attempts to toss newspapers into peoples' mailboxes.
    They explains, how the Paperdude VR game was created:
    “PaperDude VR is built in Unity with 3D assets created in 3D studio and textured in Photoshop. The KickR sensor detects the speed of the bike and has the ability to provide programatically controlled resistance. The KickR communicates speed and cadence through bluetooth to a nearby iPad which updates our app over OSC.
    The Oculus Rift VR headset lets you look around your scene in a full 360 degrees and allows you to focus your newspaper aim. The Kinect controller tracks the positions of your hands and arms, and detects the paper-throwing gesture.”
