What is the future of gaming? Is it virtual reality headsets, like the Oculus Rift? Or is it something further? For the last several years, Microsoft has been working on the next big thing in gaming. Think virtual reality, but without a headset. This new gaming system would project the game in a room 360-degrees around the player/s. There would be no controllers, just the bodies and extremities of the gamers. When exactly this next generation of gaming will be reaching the shelves and homes of consumers in unknown, but it will be something big when it happens, of that you can be certain.

App review: VK
For users of VK, their app can be used as a one-and-all program for the phone. Like the site, the app offers access to your own personal page, messenger service, free videos (similar to YouTube, but with full movies and TV episodes) and music streaming. The app is like if you combined Facebook with Spotify and YouTube all in one. That said, it isn't without it's downfalls. The app drains battery like leaving your headlights on all night. And if you're having a conversation with someone on the website, every message comes through on your phone as well. So you get a notification for every time the person you're talking to says something, even if you are reading it as it comes through on the website. Facebook is a better option here, as the site waits for about 30 seconds for you to read a message before it sends it to your phone.
