Cindori’s VR Desktop lets you use a Mac with some VR headsets — Cindori has introduced VR Desktop, a US$19.99 app that lets you use macOS together with Virtual Reality (VR) headsets. It requires macOS 10.11 or later and Oculus Rift DK2.
According to the folks at Cindori, VR Desktop allows you to:
• Create a giant virtual multi-monitor workspace that works seamlessly with macOS and third party applications;
• Play games and watch movies in custom virtual environments;
• Enhance your macOS experience by loading custom virtual environments with a multiple screen setup.
For now VR Desktop only works with the the Oculus Rift dev kit (DK2). However, Cindori plans to support other VR headsets.
Genius Bar Revives 30 Year Old Mac SE — British Tech Network host Ewen Rankin took his 30 year old Mac SE prototype to a Genius Bar at an Apple Store. With the help of friends he got ahold of Mac OS System 3.3 on floppy disks – the operating system the SE originally shipped with – and then made his way to the Apple Store.
The geniuses were more than happy to help out even though the Mac was older than some of them, and in the end they got it up and running.
