Game by E McNeill designed for the Oculus Rift which puts you in the position of a cyberpunk hacker - video embedded below:
The job is simple: break through the firewall and retrieve the data. But the net can be a dangerous place.
Built for virtual reality from the ground up, Darknet will release on PC/Mac/Linux as an exclusive launch title for the Oculus Rift VR headset.

Explanatory descriptions by Ron Guyatt
Commonly called Trojans or Trojan asteroids and less often Greek asteroids, the Jovian asteroids are a large group of objects that share the orbit of the planet Jupiter around the Sun. Relative to Jupiter, each trojan librates around one of Jupiter’s two stable Lagrangian points, L4 and L5, that respectively lie 60° ahead of and behind the planet in its orbit.
The planet Jupiter has a system of rings, known as the rings of Jupiter or the Jovian ring system. It was the third ring system to be discovered in the Solar System, after those of Saturn and Uranus.
It was first observed in 1979 by the Voyager 1 space probe and thoroughly investigated in the 1990s by the Galileo orbiter. It has also been observed by the Hubble Space Telescope and from Earth for the past 23 years. Ground-based observations of the rings require the largest available telescopes.
THE GREAT RED SPOT
The Great Red Spot is a persistent anticyclonic storm, 22° south of Jupiter’s equator; Earth observations establish a minimum storm lifetime of, variously, 184 years to possibly 349 years. The storm is large enough to be visible through Earth-based telescopes,
Knowing a great deal is not the same as being smart; intelligence is not information alone but also judgement, the manner in which information is coordinated and used.
Added a newer, poster friendly version of the Metal Ion Flame Test Colours graphic to the store today! You can view the original post here, which includes an explanation of the origin of the colours.
Imagination alone is not enough, because the reality of nature is far more wondrous than anything we can imagine.
This adventure is made possible by generations of searchers strictly adhering to a simple set of rules: test ideas by experiment and observation; build on those ideas that pass the test; reject the ones that fail; follow the evidence, wherever it leads; and question everything.
Accept these terms, and the cosmos is yours.
“There is no other species on the Earth that does science. It is, so far, entirely a human invention, evolved by natural selection in the cerebral cortex for one simple reason: it works. It is not perfect. It can be misused. It is only a tool. But it is by far the best tool we have, self-correcting, ongoing, applicable to everything.” - Carl Sagan
It is magic until you understand it, and it is mathematics thereafter.
Your genome, every human’s genome, consists of a unique DNA sequence of A’s, T’s, C’s and G’s that tell your cells how to operate. Thanks to technological advances, scientists are now able to know the sequence of letters that makes up an individual genome relatively quickly and inexpensively.
