Riot police clash with protesters in Turkey

NBC News: Hundreds of riot police clashed with protesters in Istanbul’s Taksim Square on Tuesday, as protests against the government of Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan intensified.

The latest violence began Tuesday morning when police moved past barriers erected by the protesters and into the square to scatter a small number of people who have been camped there to protest against a planned redevelopment of the square.

Testing the Virtuix Omni: a walk on the virtual side
First you put on the shoes. They’re Converse knockoffs, and you don’t even like Converse to begin with, but you don’t care because they’re special shoes. There’s a plastic plate on the bottom, which lets you skid across the floor like a bowler. You walk across the floor carefully to the harness. It’s demeaning, with a strap that threads under your groin and gives you the full-on diaper feel / look. The harness has structure to it. It all means something. And then you swing open the hatch, and step onto the Virtuix Omni. Try not to slip.
