Sixa’s Rivvr wireless VR solution is back from the dead. The company announced that pre-orders are open again, and the hardware would ship in March. And this time around, the device meets all the necessary certification requirements. Last year, Sixa introduced the Rivvr wireless VR solution at CES. We missed the company’s CES display, but we caught up with the company weeks later and secured an exclusive look at a prototype of the Rivvr system.
2017 was a banner year for cryptocurrencies, but it could all be coming crashing down in 2018. For the second day in a row, the values of nearly all the top 100 cryptocurrencies are tumbling hard. Just weeks ago, Bitcoin was trading for nearly $20,000. It's now selling for a lot closer to $11,000. Ethereum, which hit its all time high just days ago at $1,400+ per coin, is in a similar boat, now trading at less than $1,000.
Survios is in the final stages of development of its upcoming VR racing game, Sprint Vector. The company announced that it would begin the first multiplayer beta tests in a few days. Sprint Vector is an upcoming VR racing game that will challenge your physical abilities. Survios is all about active VR, and if our trial of the game at GDC 2017 is any indication, Sprint Vector will push the boundaries of active VR to levels that aren’t possible with Raw Data, the developer’s previous active VR title.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
