Wodreams Offer: Different Types of Tops for Women

When women go to buying clothes, they are always careful because they want to look their best for all the occasions. Women Tops are the most comfortable and stylish women's clothing that goes perfectly with jeans or skirt or leggings. Whether you are a businesswoman looking for professional women apparels that you can wear to the office, or a fun loving girl looking for a stylish top that you can wear with the skirt, you will find all types of tops from the formal ones to the casual and stylish tops on Wodreams.

Make sure to choose the right style and size that can highlight your assets and take everyone’s attention. One more thing, you must consider while buying the Tops is the body figure.

If you’re skinny then make sure you buy tops that make you look fuller, and if you’re fat, avoid tops that make you look fatter.

Some of the common types of women’s tops are tunics, sweaters, and blouses.

Sleeve length of the tops:

The important factor that impacts the overall look’s for women’s tops is the length of the sleeves. The sleeves of t-shirts and sweaters can be full size, short, three-quarter or capped. The long sleeves will end till the wrist. The Short sleeves will end at the bicep.

Alike the name, a sleeveless top such as the halter top or camisole has no sleeves and they give a fashionable and stylish look. You can wear this with jeans or skirts. Some women may prefer using straps in their place. The tube tops are both strapless and sleeveless, and they are kept intact with the help of a firm elastic attached to the top of the garment.

Different Collar Types:

The collars add more character and personality to the tops and they may either lay flat or stand up. The stand collars give a more formal look than the rounded ones that look more casual.

Various Necklines:

If there are no collars in the tops, they will be grouped according to the style of necklines. The most common neckline types are scoop necks, ‘V’ necks, crewnecks and so on.

Cut Styles:

The different patterns and designs of cuts give a well-defined shape to the tops and more personality. The loose fitting and boxy style tops usually have seams that run straight from the armpit to the hem; while the fitting tops will have a princess cut. The trapeze-shaped cuts are generally seen in different types of empire tops.

Meet Aditi Sood: A 14 years Old Artist who expresses her emotions in the eyes she draws and feels that there is a strong connection between Mathematics and Art
We recently caught up with Aditi for a discussion where she discusses her life, her inspiration, her motivation, her love for
#Drawing "eye" and if given a wish, she wants to give all #blind people an eye so that they can see how beautiful the #world is.
Nojoto Team: Hi Aditi, describe yourself. Imagine writing a story on Nojoto.  Aditi: I am 14 years old and study in Class 9. I am live in Kota, Rajasthan (India).
I love sketching, painting, paper cutting and I aspire to become an architect one day to make the place we call "Home" more beautiful.  

Nojoto Team: From where did you get the inspiration for drawing?  What motivated you? – Any person or a situation in particular?
Aditi: My mom is my Inspiration for my artwork. She is great with fabric painting & home décor.
My relative tells me when I was in my mother's womb, she used to do a lot of paintings, and I guess from there only, I got the skill and hold of art.

Mom is not just my inspiration, but my guide too, she guides me with how to make art how to sketch, and how to make it better and better.  
Nojoto Team: How did your parents, friends, school, hometown influence your passion for art?
Aditi: I spent my childhood in Kota, and ever since I remember, I used to make something or other and people around me used to appreciate them, and hence with that motivation – I kept on creating more and more art, and that's it.
Moreover, my father also loves my artwork. He clicks all things I draw and makes them his mobile and laptop wallpaper, and hence the strong motivation and love for my art motivate me to make more and more artwork.  Hence, I guess it's the people around me who've motivated me and has kept me going.

Nojoto Team: How do you take out time to follow your passion, considering you have to go school, study etc?
Aditi: I generally sketch on Sundays and Holidays, but more than that I always sketch whenever I have Maths Exam.

I believe there is a strong connection between Maths & art. I believe both are very similar in their nature, and at the end make things beautiful.

Nojoto Team: What is the most fulfilling thing when you share your artwork with others?
Aditi:  The most fulfilling moment is actually when I create an art, and the second best moment is when I receive a lot of Awesome, Comments, Compliments & feedback on my art. In fact, I love both type of feedback – positive, and negative - when someone tells me what I was lacking. 
In fact, most fulfilling is the moment - is when someone follows my art and tries to re-do my creation from his/her own imagination. This gives me another perspective to how he/she thought the concept and went about it.
Nojoto Team: How do you go about creating your art – Starting from thinking about it – to imagining about it – to actually drawing it? Describe the creative process, which you take generally?
Aditi:  Whenever I think of a concept, I search and see how other artists have gone about that concept, and then I re-think the concept with my own imagination. I mix both the inspiration I have taken from other artworks, and my own imagination and then start drawing/sketching. But I make sure that each artwork of mine has my touch. 

I also follow different types of artists and keep seeing what they are doing and I believe Nojoto actually helps me follow other artists so that I can know what they are doing.

And there are also times when I just paint/sketch my creativity, and actually not see what is already created.  Below is one such art called "Glamour" 


There are few more doodle arts, which I have created, and below is from them. 


Nojoto Team: Have you ever drawn yourself or your parents or any other friend? If yes, what was their reaction after seeing it?
Aditi:  There was one time in school when I was sharing my artwork online, and my maths teacher saw it and loved it. He requested me to sketch him, and I asked him to send a high-quality photograph to me so that I can sketch.

It was my first sketch where I sketched an individual from his photograph. And as soon as, I sketched and showed him, he loved it and in fact made his display picture across social media networks.
Below is the same:


Then birthday of a friend was approaching and I asked her, what do you want as a birthday present, and she said, nothing could be more beautiful than a sketch by you. And after seeing the sketch, she then told me - that it one of the best birthday gifts I have ever received.
And then this series continued.

Nojoto Team: What types of art you have experimented with?
Aditi:  I started with sketching, then experimented with a glitter pen and people loved that too. I've also tried my hands at crafts and they too have come out very well. I also have a collection of my crafts i.e paper-cutting arts on Nojoto. And if anyone wants to follow my crafts, can follow my crafts collection.
Nojoto Team: What is your most favourite procession with respect to creating an art?
Aditi:  While I love all things that help me pour my creativity and make something beautiful, but I believe my favourite procession is Pencil. Because with Pencil, there is a freedom to rub it off and change something if you want.
With the pencil, I generally start with the outline, and then little shades of what I want to draw, and then slowly I give it the final shape.
Eyes generally are the last part of my sketch, because that requires the most amount of precision and imagination.
Nojoto Team: Are you an extrovert or an introvert?
Aditi:  I am an extrovert.

Nojoto Team: You know people love the way you express "eyes" through your art – What is the story behind it? And why do you love drawing "Eye" specifically?
Aditi:  I believe Art is all about expressing your feelings. The drawing we make is 2D, but because it needs to communicate the feelings and emotions and hence I believe eyes & lips communicate feelings and emotions better than anything else.
Also, when you see the process of a woman dressing up, you will see that she makes sure that she spends the most amount of time in doing her eyes, and that is why when I draw/sketch a woman, I make sure that the eye is given special importance.  

Nojoto Team: If you could do one thing for the World, what would it be?
Aditi:  I would give all the blind people in the world an eye because I believe with eyes people can see the world and enjoy its beauty.
Nojoto Team: - What is "your" favorite art till now?
Aditi:  The one below is my favorite art till now


Nojoto Team: What do you love about Nojoto? And why do you like it?
Aditi:   I like the concept that you can find people with Similar Interests on Nojoto and the fact that when I share my art on Nojoto, it reaches people of similar interests. 

Moreover, the point that I can create different types of collection for different types of art  – and hence organize my artwork better is good.

I have two types of "Collection" on Nojoto – Under "Traditional Arts" - One is for my sketches and other is for my paper craft.  

Nojoto Team: What is your message for other kids who are young and have a passion for a particular interest? 
Aditi: 
- Keep working on what you love, perfection will come automatically.
- Do not get demotivated, if you do not have perfection for something you love, keep working on your passion and one day you will achieve perfection. 

Nojoto Team:  What an Amazing Talent you are Aditi, We wish you tons of Luck and hope that many more people after reading will follow their passion as passionately as you.

Looking forward to more seeing more amazing artwork from you on Nojoto!

What is Germaine Greer the iconic feminist trying to say in that Al Jazeera interview in 'Head to head' program?

Okay, first of all, let me say it in the beginning that I am not a feminist supporter but supporter of ultra modern women who take decision on her own right without conditioned by others.

Why am I not supporter of feminism rather pro men that is a complex long debate for another day.

I gave this introduction about myself to clarify a few things as I am going to answer this question.

I saw the recent debate of Germaine Greer in Al Jazeera channel.

What is my take from that debate that she is hugely misunderstood by others for many reasons.

I am explaing this as a normal analyser of any normal analysable content not as a feminist defender of any kind (as I said before, sorry for repeating)

Explanation:

First of all, she is an old woman so she isn't being able to communicate with people clearly

What she is again and again trying to give message that sex is not a big deal. Wheather it is abusive sex or normal sex. Her intention is basically to make sure sex never becomes the prime issue for women.

She feels that sex is the biggest distraction for women's rights. As she feels that women are beyond anything attached to sex. She feels that it is conditioned by men to make women contained by sexual parameters.

She wants women to get out of that trap. She feels mordern feminists are Kind of trapped in this.

Now I don't know her or follow her, so I don't exactly know what she said or not. Maybe she hasn't said all those things, maybe it kind of got hyped by the media or she has said those things in order to explain the things that I said before but couldn't do it in a simple clear way. As a result end up making a lot of confusion in the process

As you may have heard in that interview 'Head to head', she was constantly describing herself as middle class white academic. Which means she is trying to say that she can see through the fakeness of so-called privileged and rich Hollywood people or people like that. And she is basically pissed off in a big way towards them. Because she feels that is dumbing down the whole feminist movement. Remember she mentioned Uma Thurman in this case. She is trying to say that these people(Hollywood types or celebrity types) doesn't matter what they say as they are opposing certain people when it suits their agenda, and they will support when it will suit them. She is trying to say that these people are complaining against certain lobby which they themselves are very well part of therefore completely fake. This is why she has such disdain towards ‘Me too' campaign or negetive towards these types of effort as she feels this is all part of big show of powerful people. She just hates this. That is why she feels there not going to be much result from people like Hervey Weinstein's case. As she feels that the whole feminist movement is now driving by the same poweful lobby which it's supposed to oppose.

As a result she feels that women's issues are not even the main issue in feminist movement any more, a whole lot of other issues have come into it and clouding it or distracting it or slowing it down.

This is why not being able to express properly she generally use very strong insensitive word. It is her lack of communication basically.

She is tremendously concerned with the fact that a lot of other kind of thinking has got into feminist movement as a result the whole feminist movement at times becomes completely different from what it started to be.

She is trying to say that these religious politically correctness defeating the whole feminist movement. For example how Muslim feminist defend Quranic verse or burqa etc. But again she is not exactly communicating properly. That's why she doesn't like that Muslim anchor who obviously felt that he exposed her duplicity through his debate. That is why she is again and again giving emphasis on sex being not a big issue. As she knows sex is a big issue to religion. In this case Islam. This is why also she is pissed off

She belongs to that era where calling spade a spade was infact politically correct or they fought for. So she is pissed off seeing today's feminist's certain religious ass kissing in this case Islam. But again she is not being able to communicate properly.

This is what I thought from that interview.

I could be wrong as I never heard about her before that interview.

But I feel I am not wrong here.

Content Distribution Tools #Notes
When you’re creating useful, actionable, epic content, everyone deserves to see it. So how do you get your hard work and effort seen by the largest audience possible?



The 3 Types of Content Distribution Channels
Before we dive into the tools, let’s start with an overview of content distribution. Essentially, when you distribute your content, you do so in three basic channels.
OwnedEarnedPaidOwned media includes the channels that belong to you, where you control the content. This can be your blog, website, email newsletter, and social media profiles.
Earned media involves others sharing your content. This can take the form of social media shares, guest posts, media coverage, and product reviews.
Paid media is the exposure you pay for, be it pay-per-click ads, display ads, social ads, or otherwise.

When viewed in a Venn diagram, you can see that these channels provide a bit of overlap with one another as content distribution can touch on many different channels for the same piece of content.


With this idea framework in mind, let’s look at some tools that help accomplish content distribution in each of the three major distribution channels: owned, earned, and paid.
The 17 Best Tools for Widespread Content Distribution

1. Buffer

We’ve found Buffer to be the simplest way to share your content to your social media channels on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn. You can schedule your posts to publish at ideal times (or let Buffer decide when is best), and you can reshare older content by re-buffering straight from the app dashboard.


2. Edgar

A new tool for reposting content from your archives, Edgar helps with evergreen promotion by linking to your social channels and sharing old content at a regular drip.

3. WiseStamp

A complete, beautiful email signature that can contain the typical contact information plus a host of other social media, RSS, and content distribution tidbits. You can show your latest tweet or hook up your RSS feed to show your latest blogpost.


4. Goodbits

Create an email newsletter full of amazing links (including the content of yours you want to distribute). Goodbits lets you drag-and-drop content from a queue made up of any RSS feed you connect as well as any articles you add via the bookmarklet or browser extension. You can then customize, edit, and send to your contacts, including your MailChimp list and segments.


5. MailChimp

Speaking of email newsletters, MailChimp is one of the biggest and best (and free) ways to send email to your list of contacts. You can set up automated campaigns that deliver each new post that you write, or you can create campaigns from scratch. MailChimp offers free accounts for those with fewer than 2,000 contacts in their list.

6. SumoMe

The suite of tools offered by the SumoMe WordPress plugin helps considerably with owned media and earned media. For owned media, SumoMe offers list building tools that include a subscription scroll box, a signup bar, list popup, and incentives/giveaways widget.

In terms of earned media, SumoMe makes it easy for others to share images on your blogposts as well as the posts themselves.

7. OnePress Social Locker

This WordPress plugin allows you to lock a portion of your content behind a social share button so that the content can only be accessed once a user shares to Twitter, Facebook, or Google+.


8. Help a Reporter (HARO)

HARO lets you connect with journalists looking for a source. If you’ve got an expertise or experience in a certain area, you can sign up at HARO and a reporter could get in touch!

9. PR Newswire

Got something newsworthy to share? Consider going the press route. PR Newswire can help with distribution of news, announcements, and events to a variety of sources. If you sign up, a rep from PR Newswire will get in touch directly to authorize your account and help with any press release promotion you need.

10. List.ly

Build a list about anything—resources for your niche, articles you love, helpful tools, recommended books, etc. Grab links from around the web (including yours), and publish and share—and even embed—your list so that others can see.


11. Buzzstream

Buzzstream provides a host of services that assist with link building. You can find influencers in your niche who may want to share your content, and you can organize outreach efforts all the way from list building to measuring responses.

12. Boomerang for Gmail

Outreach to fellow bloggers and influencers may require a bit of followup. With Boomerang, you can schedule your emails and automate follow-ups.


13. Contently

Writers, authors, and journalists can create a portfolio at Contently, which can then be viewed and shared by just about anyone—readers, social media users, and even potential employers. The Contently platform helps connect content producers with those in need of content, and the service acts as a great way to distribute your own writing in one consistent place.


14. Storify

Collect content from across the web—blogposts, tweets, and more—and place it into a Storify page. We use Storify for recaps of our Bufferchats on Twitter. The service integrates all types of media from videos to articles and everything in between.

15. Outbrain

Have you ever come across a series of links at the end of an article? Would it be cool to see your content there? You can sign up for this kind of service at Outbrain, which feeds related/interesting content to pages all over the Internet.

Similar services include Disqus, Taboola, Skyword, and SimpleReach. Contently did a great breakdown of the pros and cons (and costs) of these paid channels, and Powered By Search has a list of great options, too.

16. Facebook sponsored posts

In a similar way to Facebook ads, you can pay to have your page’s posts seen by more users on the network. You can boost any post from your page and target the boost to reach a particular demographic of location, age, gender, or interest.

17. Promoted tweets

Like Facebook sponsored posts, you can get more views on your tweets by paying to promote a tweet to a larger audience. This occurs through the Twitter ads dashboard where you can compose an original tweet to promote or grab one from your stream that you’d like more people to see.

13 VR Games That Will BLOW YOUR MIND
Augmented Reality might be experiencing a sudden and somewhat unexpected surge in popularity off the back of the global sensation that is Pokemon: GO!, but in truth the REAL hype train that's actually going places is Virtual Reality, aka VR. This is the next big thing, and not just in a popular title way like Pokemon, but more in an era-defining technology like the introduction of smartphones or the major console generations in gaming.
Yes, VR is the next big thing. There's little disputing this, it's not like smartwatches that were foisted on an unwilling public by over-enthusiastic tech firms. Nope, VR started off softly, softly as independent, ambitious development projects by people just testing the waters and trying to push boundaries. Not much was available at first, but the huge surge in consumer interest in turn caught manufacturer interest BIG TIME; here was a large and feverish consumer base eager to get its hands, heads, and eyeballs on and into the virtual reality space. Cue much understandable bandwagon jumping.
It started with a few outlying projects such as Google Cardboard and the fledgling baby steps of Oculus Rift, but once that latter device started generating more and more buzz the big industry players really sat up and paid attention. By now, we're looking at every major electronics manufacturer having a hand in the VR game; Samsung has the Gear VR, the Oculus Rift is now owned by Facebook, LG has the LG 360 VR, Sony has the PlayStation VR, Razer has the OSVR, and HTC has the Vive.
There's also a plethora of lesser known OEMs creating their own hardware and all vying for your attention, while Google is reportedly working on its own, possibly Nexus branded, VR headset, and also developing Google Daydream as an Android-based VR platform for other OEMs to make use of (mirroring its smartphone business model). Arguably the two most successful devices to hit the market so far have been the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift.
It is still undoubtedly early days for VR, however, and some believe the medium is unlikely to hit any kind of maturity level to make it a "must-have" item (just like smartphones or major consoles such as the Xbox One and PS4) until at least 2020. But the momentum it has gained already clearly indicates it is here to stay, it is the future, and there's enough enthusiasm already that following the hardware manufacturer scramble to put out devices, there is now a developer scramble to create supporting software. A big chunk of the selection of games and applications available for VR devices released to date are in alpha or beta development stages, and many are available for free to try out ahead of their full launch. Others are using early-access models where you must buy the game at a reduced cost from its expected RRP on full release. Many more are also mere tech demo, proof-of-concept prototypes, and while a bunch of these are free this still doesn't stop some publishers charging you for the privilege. Still, paid or free, the point is there's already a bunch of cool software out there to feast your virtual eyes on.
So without further ado, here is KYM's list of VR games and fun applications you should probably try if you have a VR device. We will strive to keep this list fresh and updated as things develop over time.
Hover Junkers

This one's a bit different - in Hover Junkers you take the role of a scrap scavenger in a kind of post-apocalyptic wasteland. It's a multiplayer arena game and the idea is that the game observes the shape of your defined play area in your room, as picked up by the HTC Vive and designated during your setup process. This play area is your Hover Junker ship which is piloted around the game world, where you'll fight it out with other players using your pistols - during set up you can fortify your ship with physical objects that you need to duck behind for cover during your shoot-outs!Here's the blurb from Steam, where the game is priced at £26.99:
"Engage in multiplayer VR gunfights that capture real gun play like no FPS you've played before. Pilot and fortify Hover Junkers as you physically walk, duck, dodge and aim in cross ship combat."

The Thrill Of The Fight

As the name referencing the classic anthem "Eye Of The Tiger" suggests, The Thrill Of The Fight is a boxing simulator which allows you to get into the ring and slug it out against an opponent. At present it's an early-phase tech-demo with a training session and a single competitor to fight against. Also, right now you can punch and dodge, but not block like your opponent can. As with all indie development projects nothing is concrete, but we've seen talk of a bigger campaign/career mode, with the developer, "fyian", posting on Reddit. They said, "I'm hoping to add in somewhere around 16 opponents total, all with their own unique personalities and attacks."They also added that a blocking mechanic for the player is under consideration. There seems to be a lot of demand for multiplayer but fyian has stated that they think this would be difficult to implement. TTOTF is available as a demo download from the official site but can be found on Stea; it is currently compatible with the HTC Vive. fyian has mentioned that on a commercial release game may be priced at around $7.99.

Spell FighterSpell Fighter is another indie tech-demo developed by Kubold which places you in the role of a kind of quasi-medieval fantasy "witch hunter" type character, think Van Helsing or Solomon Kane. You start off in a village, but exploring will quickly reveal some gribbly zombies and skeletons to deal with. You can defend yourself with a variety of spells, swords, spears, bows, and guns, and also summoning minions. However, the real meat of the game is in venturing out further to find the source of the monster invasion!The game is available for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift and can be installed via Steam.

Raw DataRaw Data is one of the more polished VR gaming experiences we've seen so far. Developed by Servios, it's available as an early-access title on Steam for the HTC Vive. The game's main mode is a co-operative mission where you can team up with another player to defend a location from increasingly tough swarms of killer robots. There's a wide range of weapons on top of your starting pistol and katana sword combination (oh yes), including shotguns, machine guns, and even a bow with explosive arrows. The game also features a competetive "duel" multiplayer mode.
Lightblade VROk, it's called Lightblade VR because it's not an official LucasArts/LucasFilm Star Wars product, but to all intents and purposes Lightblade VR is a Lightsabre simulator. We'll clear something else up straight away too - it doesn't include duelling with enemies or other players, unfortunately - what it does offer though is a spot of Jedi training against one of those little laser shooting drones, just like Luke Skywalker in the first movie. The aim is to deflect the incoming blasts, and you can select a number of difficulty modes from Rookie to Legend. Or if you'd rather you can just piss about waving one or two Lightsabres around, which is really all we're interested in, right? You can even change the colour of each Lightsabre individually. Neat.And yes, it's another Vive game on Steam!
Note that an official Lightsabre game is in development: Trials On Tatooine.

Waltz Of The WizardWaltz Of The Wizard is another sandbox game that may appeal to any Harry Potter fans out there. You play a Wizard at home in his tower. Here you're able to concoct potions, discover and cast spells to alter yourself or the world around you, and explore and interact with both your tower and...other dimensions! This game is free on Steam!
Vanishing Realms

Vanishing Realms is a somewhat cartoony action RPG in the vein of titles such as D&D, Zelda, and Diablo, but being unique for its VR control system. Go dungeon crawling in a 3D fantasy realm to fight skeletons and other monsters with swords, spells, and bows. Available on Steam for the HTC Vive as an early access title for £14.99 (visit the page for video).
Out Of Ammo
Out Of Ammo is a game developed by Dean Hall's (creator of DayZ) new studio RocketWerkz. It's still in development, but the game offers an interesting take on the Tower Defence genre where you are hovering over your base and able to assign soldiers, weapons, and resources to defend it. When things get manic, be prepared to lock-and-load, jumping into the first-person view of one of your soldier minions armed with assault rifles, sniper rifles, and machine gun emplacements. Compatible with the HTC Vive and priced at £14.99 on Steam."Four unique environments to try your skill on
- Construct defenses such as sandbags and watchtowers-Issue orders to your soldiers-Five different kinds of units each with special abilities-Possess any units directly to control their engagement-Call in artillery, airstrikes, and sniper targets-Fixed Machine guns, Grenades, and more"
Elite: DangerousNot so much a "VR game" per-se as it is an established mainstream title that was smartly developed with emerging VR in mind and has now been tweaked to allow compatibility with the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Elite: Dangerous' persistent multiplayer universe of intergalactic trading, war, bounty hunting, and piracy is not for the feint-hearted, but who can resist the lure of piloting their own spaceship in glorious, immersive, VR 3D? And with graphics this good as well!
theBlu: Encouter

theBlu: Encounter by Wevr is one of those VR "experiences" which lets you see what it's like getting up close and personal with various types of sea life without the inconvenience of travel, breathing equipment, or getting wet. Whales, fish, jellyfish, and sea anemones are all present for you to ogle, or prod with your virtual fingers (yes they do react).
Universe Sandbox² Pretty much what it says on the tin - Universe Sandbox lets you mess around with the building blocks of astrophysics in the depths of space; create planets, suns, or whole galaxies, form nebulas, build beautiful starmaps and cosmic spacescapes. Or, if youre feeling destructive, smash everything together into supernovas, create the next Big Bang, or chuck it all into a black hole! The game is available via early access on Steam for $24.99/£18.99.
The ClimbYou might have noticed that many of the games in this list are available on the HTC Vive, while a few of them are on the Oculus Rift AND the HTC Vive; it's fair to say the Vive seems to have pretty much taken over as the dominant VR platform for now. However, there are some games out there that were developed for the Oculus Rift first, and which don't appear to have switched to the Vive just yet. The Climb is one such title, and as the name suggests it is a VR climbing simulator, allowing you to scale some impressive cliffs and natural structures in an immersive environment without the worry of actual death! The graphics on this game look amazing, and it's currently only available for the Oculus Rift via the Oculus store; be warned that the devs describe the experience as "intense" and also it's not cheap as VR games go, with a full-retail level price tag of £39.99. That said, it does appear to be a very thoroughly and profressionall developed title. Frankly, we'd be surprised if this game didn't get wider VR device support (including the Gear VR and Vive) at some point.
Zombie Training Simulator

The descriptively titled Zombie Training Simulator is, as expected, a simulator in which you train to fight zombies. Yes. The game has some very fun cartoony graphics similar in to Plants Vs Zombies. Players can choose from a range of different course types, including survival and various trick shooting events such as time trials. You'll start off next to a bench full of weapons, including shotguns, pistols, machine guns, assault rifles, and explosives, which unlock as you kill more and more zombies in the various modes. You can also take advantage of environmental hazards such as gas canisters or petrol cans, and even throw slabs of meat to distract the ravenous hordes temporarily. The zombies themselves are a sort of cardboard cut-out variety to emphasise the "training simulator" aspect (as well as presumably saving on animation time and system resources!). Available on Steam for £14.99 and compatible with the HTC Vive.
Bonus: Tilt Brush VRNot really a game, but it is fun to mess around with. Google's VR proof-of-concept Tilt Brush is a 3D VR painting and creativity suite that literally lets you create virtual 3D sculptures or paintings in a virtual space. Because it's a VR app you can paint and sculpt with all kinds of materials artists might only dream of being able to use - lava, light, rocky earth, fabrics, fire, even snow. Creations can also be set up to be location based, effectively turning your living room into a virtual gallery for your art as VR "installations" viewable when the headset is worn. You can also export your art in more traditonal still images or animated gifs for people who don't have VR.

Wodreams Offer: Different Types of Tops for Women

When women go to buying clothes, they are always careful because they want to look their best for all the occasions. Women Tops are the most comfortable and stylish women's clothing that goes perfectly with jeans or skirt or leggings. Whether you are a businesswoman looking for professional women apparels that you can wear to the office, or a fun loving girl looking for a stylish top that you can wear with the skirt, you will find all types of tops from the formal ones to the casual and stylish tops on Wodreams.

Make sure to choose the right style and size that can highlight your assets and take everyone’s attention. One more thing, you must consider while buying the Tops is the body figure.

If you’re skinny then make sure you buy tops that make you look fuller, and if you’re fat, avoid tops that make you look fatter.

Some of the common types of women’s tops are tunics, sweaters, and blouses.

Sleeve length of the tops:

The important factor that impacts the overall look’s for women’s tops is the length of the sleeves. The sleeves of t-shirts and sweaters can be full size, short, three-quarter or capped. The long sleeves will end till the wrist. The Short sleeves will end at the bicep.

Alike the name, a sleeveless top such as the halter top or camisole has no sleeves and they give a fashionable and stylish look. You can wear this with jeans or skirts. Some women may prefer using straps in their place. The tube tops are both strapless and sleeveless, and they are kept intact with the help of a firm elastic attached to the top of the garment.

Different Collar Types:

The collars add more character and personality to the tops and they may either lay flat or stand up. The stand collars give a more formal look than the rounded ones that look more casual.

Various Necklines:

If there are no collars in the tops, they will be grouped according to the style of necklines. The most common neckline types are scoop necks, ‘V’ necks, crewnecks and so on.

Cut Styles:

The different patterns and designs of cuts give a well-defined shape to the tops and more personality. The loose fitting and boxy style tops usually have seams that run straight from the armpit to the hem; while the fitting tops will have a princess cut. The trapeze-shaped cuts are generally seen in different types of empire tops.

Meet Aditi Sood: A 14 years Old Artist who expresses her emotions in the eyes she draws and feels that there is a strong connection between Mathematics and Art
We recently caught up with Aditi for a discussion where she discusses her life, her inspiration, her motivation, her love for
#Drawing "eye" and if given a wish, she wants to give all #blind people an eye so that they can see how beautiful the #world is.
Nojoto Team: Hi Aditi, describe yourself. Imagine writing a story on Nojoto.  Aditi: I am 14 years old and study in Class 9. I am live in Kota, Rajasthan (India).
I love sketching, painting, paper cutting and I aspire to become an architect one day to make the place we call "Home" more beautiful.  

Nojoto Team: From where did you get the inspiration for drawing?  What motivated you? – Any person or a situation in particular?
Aditi: My mom is my Inspiration for my artwork. She is great with fabric painting & home décor.
My relative tells me when I was in my mother's womb, she used to do a lot of paintings, and I guess from there only, I got the skill and hold of art.

Mom is not just my inspiration, but my guide too, she guides me with how to make art how to sketch, and how to make it better and better.  
Nojoto Team: How did your parents, friends, school, hometown influence your passion for art?
Aditi: I spent my childhood in Kota, and ever since I remember, I used to make something or other and people around me used to appreciate them, and hence with that motivation – I kept on creating more and more art, and that's it.
Moreover, my father also loves my artwork. He clicks all things I draw and makes them his mobile and laptop wallpaper, and hence the strong motivation and love for my art motivate me to make more and more artwork.  Hence, I guess it's the people around me who've motivated me and has kept me going.

Nojoto Team: How do you take out time to follow your passion, considering you have to go school, study etc?
Aditi: I generally sketch on Sundays and Holidays, but more than that I always sketch whenever I have Maths Exam.

I believe there is a strong connection between Maths & art. I believe both are very similar in their nature, and at the end make things beautiful.

Nojoto Team: What is the most fulfilling thing when you share your artwork with others?
Aditi:  The most fulfilling moment is actually when I create an art, and the second best moment is when I receive a lot of Awesome, Comments, Compliments & feedback on my art. In fact, I love both type of feedback – positive, and negative - when someone tells me what I was lacking. 
In fact, most fulfilling is the moment - is when someone follows my art and tries to re-do my creation from his/her own imagination. This gives me another perspective to how he/she thought the concept and went about it.
Nojoto Team: How do you go about creating your art – Starting from thinking about it – to imagining about it – to actually drawing it? Describe the creative process, which you take generally?
Aditi:  Whenever I think of a concept, I search and see how other artists have gone about that concept, and then I re-think the concept with my own imagination. I mix both the inspiration I have taken from other artworks, and my own imagination and then start drawing/sketching. But I make sure that each artwork of mine has my touch. 

I also follow different types of artists and keep seeing what they are doing and I believe Nojoto actually helps me follow other artists so that I can know what they are doing.

And there are also times when I just paint/sketch my creativity, and actually not see what is already created.  Below is one such art called "Glamour" 


There are few more doodle arts, which I have created, and below is from them. 


Nojoto Team: Have you ever drawn yourself or your parents or any other friend? If yes, what was their reaction after seeing it?
Aditi:  There was one time in school when I was sharing my artwork online, and my maths teacher saw it and loved it. He requested me to sketch him, and I asked him to send a high-quality photograph to me so that I can sketch.

It was my first sketch where I sketched an individual from his photograph. And as soon as, I sketched and showed him, he loved it and in fact made his display picture across social media networks.
Below is the same:


Then birthday of a friend was approaching and I asked her, what do you want as a birthday present, and she said, nothing could be more beautiful than a sketch by you. And after seeing the sketch, she then told me - that it one of the best birthday gifts I have ever received.
And then this series continued.

Nojoto Team: What types of art you have experimented with?
Aditi:  I started with sketching, then experimented with a glitter pen and people loved that too. I've also tried my hands at crafts and they too have come out very well. I also have a collection of my crafts i.e paper-cutting arts on Nojoto. And if anyone wants to follow my crafts, can follow my crafts collection.
Nojoto Team: What is your most favourite procession with respect to creating an art?
Aditi:  While I love all things that help me pour my creativity and make something beautiful, but I believe my favourite procession is Pencil. Because with Pencil, there is a freedom to rub it off and change something if you want.
With the pencil, I generally start with the outline, and then little shades of what I want to draw, and then slowly I give it the final shape.
Eyes generally are the last part of my sketch, because that requires the most amount of precision and imagination.
Nojoto Team: Are you an extrovert or an introvert?
Aditi:  I am an extrovert.

Nojoto Team: You know people love the way you express "eyes" through your art – What is the story behind it? And why do you love drawing "Eye" specifically?
Aditi:  I believe Art is all about expressing your feelings. The drawing we make is 2D, but because it needs to communicate the feelings and emotions and hence I believe eyes & lips communicate feelings and emotions better than anything else.
Also, when you see the process of a woman dressing up, you will see that she makes sure that she spends the most amount of time in doing her eyes, and that is why when I draw/sketch a woman, I make sure that the eye is given special importance.  

Nojoto Team: If you could do one thing for the World, what would it be?
Aditi:  I would give all the blind people in the world an eye because I believe with eyes people can see the world and enjoy its beauty.
Nojoto Team: - What is "your" favorite art till now?
Aditi:  The one below is my favorite art till now


Nojoto Team: What do you love about Nojoto? And why do you like it?
Aditi:   I like the concept that you can find people with Similar Interests on Nojoto and the fact that when I share my art on Nojoto, it reaches people of similar interests. 

Moreover, the point that I can create different types of collection for different types of art  – and hence organize my artwork better is good.

I have two types of "Collection" on Nojoto – Under "Traditional Arts" - One is for my sketches and other is for my paper craft.  

Nojoto Team: What is your message for other kids who are young and have a passion for a particular interest? 
Aditi: 
- Keep working on what you love, perfection will come automatically.
- Do not get demotivated, if you do not have perfection for something you love, keep working on your passion and one day you will achieve perfection. 

Nojoto Team:  What an Amazing Talent you are Aditi, We wish you tons of Luck and hope that many more people after reading will follow their passion as passionately as you.

Looking forward to more seeing more amazing artwork from you on Nojoto!

What is Germaine Greer the iconic feminist trying to say in that Al Jazeera interview in 'Head to head' program?

Okay, first of all, let me say it in the beginning that I am not a feminist supporter but supporter of ultra modern women who take decision on her own right without conditioned by others.

Why am I not supporter of feminism rather pro men that is a complex long debate for another day.

I gave this introduction about myself to clarify a few things as I am going to answer this question.

I saw the recent debate of Germaine Greer in Al Jazeera channel.

What is my take from that debate that she is hugely misunderstood by others for many reasons.

I am explaing this as a normal analyser of any normal analysable content not as a feminist defender of any kind (as I said before, sorry for repeating)

Explanation:

First of all, she is an old woman so she isn't being able to communicate with people clearly

What she is again and again trying to give message that sex is not a big deal. Wheather it is abusive sex or normal sex. Her intention is basically to make sure sex never becomes the prime issue for women.

She feels that sex is the biggest distraction for women's rights. As she feels that women are beyond anything attached to sex. She feels that it is conditioned by men to make women contained by sexual parameters.

She wants women to get out of that trap. She feels mordern feminists are Kind of trapped in this.

Now I don't know her or follow her, so I don't exactly know what she said or not. Maybe she hasn't said all those things, maybe it kind of got hyped by the media or she has said those things in order to explain the things that I said before but couldn't do it in a simple clear way. As a result end up making a lot of confusion in the process

As you may have heard in that interview 'Head to head', she was constantly describing herself as middle class white academic. Which means she is trying to say that she can see through the fakeness of so-called privileged and rich Hollywood people or people like that. And she is basically pissed off in a big way towards them. Because she feels that is dumbing down the whole feminist movement. Remember she mentioned Uma Thurman in this case. She is trying to say that these people(Hollywood types or celebrity types) doesn't matter what they say as they are opposing certain people when it suits their agenda, and they will support when it will suit them. She is trying to say that these people are complaining against certain lobby which they themselves are very well part of therefore completely fake. This is why she has such disdain towards ‘Me too' campaign or negetive towards these types of effort as she feels this is all part of big show of powerful people. She just hates this. That is why she feels there not going to be much result from people like Hervey Weinstein's case. As she feels that the whole feminist movement is now driving by the same poweful lobby which it's supposed to oppose.

As a result she feels that women's issues are not even the main issue in feminist movement any more, a whole lot of other issues have come into it and clouding it or distracting it or slowing it down.

This is why not being able to express properly she generally use very strong insensitive word. It is her lack of communication basically.

She is tremendously concerned with the fact that a lot of other kind of thinking has got into feminist movement as a result the whole feminist movement at times becomes completely different from what it started to be.

She is trying to say that these religious politically correctness defeating the whole feminist movement. For example how Muslim feminist defend Quranic verse or burqa etc. But again she is not exactly communicating properly. That's why she doesn't like that Muslim anchor who obviously felt that he exposed her duplicity through his debate. That is why she is again and again giving emphasis on sex being not a big issue. As she knows sex is a big issue to religion. In this case Islam. This is why also she is pissed off

She belongs to that era where calling spade a spade was infact politically correct or they fought for. So she is pissed off seeing today's feminist's certain religious ass kissing in this case Islam. But again she is not being able to communicate properly.

This is what I thought from that interview.

I could be wrong as I never heard about her before that interview.

But I feel I am not wrong here.

Content Distribution Tools #Notes
When you’re creating useful, actionable, epic content, everyone deserves to see it. So how do you get your hard work and effort seen by the largest audience possible?



The 3 Types of Content Distribution Channels
Before we dive into the tools, let’s start with an overview of content distribution. Essentially, when you distribute your content, you do so in three basic channels.
OwnedEarnedPaidOwned media includes the channels that belong to you, where you control the content. This can be your blog, website, email newsletter, and social media profiles.
Earned media involves others sharing your content. This can take the form of social media shares, guest posts, media coverage, and product reviews.
Paid media is the exposure you pay for, be it pay-per-click ads, display ads, social ads, or otherwise.

When viewed in a Venn diagram, you can see that these channels provide a bit of overlap with one another as content distribution can touch on many different channels for the same piece of content.


With this idea framework in mind, let’s look at some tools that help accomplish content distribution in each of the three major distribution channels: owned, earned, and paid.
The 17 Best Tools for Widespread Content Distribution

1. Buffer

We’ve found Buffer to be the simplest way to share your content to your social media channels on Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn. You can schedule your posts to publish at ideal times (or let Buffer decide when is best), and you can reshare older content by re-buffering straight from the app dashboard.


2. Edgar

A new tool for reposting content from your archives, Edgar helps with evergreen promotion by linking to your social channels and sharing old content at a regular drip.

3. WiseStamp

A complete, beautiful email signature that can contain the typical contact information plus a host of other social media, RSS, and content distribution tidbits. You can show your latest tweet or hook up your RSS feed to show your latest blogpost.


4. Goodbits

Create an email newsletter full of amazing links (including the content of yours you want to distribute). Goodbits lets you drag-and-drop content from a queue made up of any RSS feed you connect as well as any articles you add via the bookmarklet or browser extension. You can then customize, edit, and send to your contacts, including your MailChimp list and segments.


5. MailChimp

Speaking of email newsletters, MailChimp is one of the biggest and best (and free) ways to send email to your list of contacts. You can set up automated campaigns that deliver each new post that you write, or you can create campaigns from scratch. MailChimp offers free accounts for those with fewer than 2,000 contacts in their list.

6. SumoMe

The suite of tools offered by the SumoMe WordPress plugin helps considerably with owned media and earned media. For owned media, SumoMe offers list building tools that include a subscription scroll box, a signup bar, list popup, and incentives/giveaways widget.

In terms of earned media, SumoMe makes it easy for others to share images on your blogposts as well as the posts themselves.

7. OnePress Social Locker

This WordPress plugin allows you to lock a portion of your content behind a social share button so that the content can only be accessed once a user shares to Twitter, Facebook, or Google+.


8. Help a Reporter (HARO)

HARO lets you connect with journalists looking for a source. If you’ve got an expertise or experience in a certain area, you can sign up at HARO and a reporter could get in touch!

9. PR Newswire

Got something newsworthy to share? Consider going the press route. PR Newswire can help with distribution of news, announcements, and events to a variety of sources. If you sign up, a rep from PR Newswire will get in touch directly to authorize your account and help with any press release promotion you need.

10. List.ly

Build a list about anything—resources for your niche, articles you love, helpful tools, recommended books, etc. Grab links from around the web (including yours), and publish and share—and even embed—your list so that others can see.


11. Buzzstream

Buzzstream provides a host of services that assist with link building. You can find influencers in your niche who may want to share your content, and you can organize outreach efforts all the way from list building to measuring responses.

12. Boomerang for Gmail

Outreach to fellow bloggers and influencers may require a bit of followup. With Boomerang, you can schedule your emails and automate follow-ups.


13. Contently

Writers, authors, and journalists can create a portfolio at Contently, which can then be viewed and shared by just about anyone—readers, social media users, and even potential employers. The Contently platform helps connect content producers with those in need of content, and the service acts as a great way to distribute your own writing in one consistent place.


14. Storify

Collect content from across the web—blogposts, tweets, and more—and place it into a Storify page. We use Storify for recaps of our Bufferchats on Twitter. The service integrates all types of media from videos to articles and everything in between.

15. Outbrain

Have you ever come across a series of links at the end of an article? Would it be cool to see your content there? You can sign up for this kind of service at Outbrain, which feeds related/interesting content to pages all over the Internet.

Similar services include Disqus, Taboola, Skyword, and SimpleReach. Contently did a great breakdown of the pros and cons (and costs) of these paid channels, and Powered By Search has a list of great options, too.

16. Facebook sponsored posts

In a similar way to Facebook ads, you can pay to have your page’s posts seen by more users on the network. You can boost any post from your page and target the boost to reach a particular demographic of location, age, gender, or interest.

17. Promoted tweets

Like Facebook sponsored posts, you can get more views on your tweets by paying to promote a tweet to a larger audience. This occurs through the Twitter ads dashboard where you can compose an original tweet to promote or grab one from your stream that you’d like more people to see.

13 VR Games That Will BLOW YOUR MIND
Augmented Reality might be experiencing a sudden and somewhat unexpected surge in popularity off the back of the global sensation that is Pokemon: GO!, but in truth the REAL hype train that's actually going places is Virtual Reality, aka VR. This is the next big thing, and not just in a popular title way like Pokemon, but more in an era-defining technology like the introduction of smartphones or the major console generations in gaming.
Yes, VR is the next big thing. There's little disputing this, it's not like smartwatches that were foisted on an unwilling public by over-enthusiastic tech firms. Nope, VR started off softly, softly as independent, ambitious development projects by people just testing the waters and trying to push boundaries. Not much was available at first, but the huge surge in consumer interest in turn caught manufacturer interest BIG TIME; here was a large and feverish consumer base eager to get its hands, heads, and eyeballs on and into the virtual reality space. Cue much understandable bandwagon jumping.
It started with a few outlying projects such as Google Cardboard and the fledgling baby steps of Oculus Rift, but once that latter device started generating more and more buzz the big industry players really sat up and paid attention. By now, we're looking at every major electronics manufacturer having a hand in the VR game; Samsung has the Gear VR, the Oculus Rift is now owned by Facebook, LG has the LG 360 VR, Sony has the PlayStation VR, Razer has the OSVR, and HTC has the Vive.
There's also a plethora of lesser known OEMs creating their own hardware and all vying for your attention, while Google is reportedly working on its own, possibly Nexus branded, VR headset, and also developing Google Daydream as an Android-based VR platform for other OEMs to make use of (mirroring its smartphone business model). Arguably the two most successful devices to hit the market so far have been the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift.
It is still undoubtedly early days for VR, however, and some believe the medium is unlikely to hit any kind of maturity level to make it a "must-have" item (just like smartphones or major consoles such as the Xbox One and PS4) until at least 2020. But the momentum it has gained already clearly indicates it is here to stay, it is the future, and there's enough enthusiasm already that following the hardware manufacturer scramble to put out devices, there is now a developer scramble to create supporting software. A big chunk of the selection of games and applications available for VR devices released to date are in alpha or beta development stages, and many are available for free to try out ahead of their full launch. Others are using early-access models where you must buy the game at a reduced cost from its expected RRP on full release. Many more are also mere tech demo, proof-of-concept prototypes, and while a bunch of these are free this still doesn't stop some publishers charging you for the privilege. Still, paid or free, the point is there's already a bunch of cool software out there to feast your virtual eyes on.
So without further ado, here is KYM's list of VR games and fun applications you should probably try if you have a VR device. We will strive to keep this list fresh and updated as things develop over time.
Hover Junkers

This one's a bit different - in Hover Junkers you take the role of a scrap scavenger in a kind of post-apocalyptic wasteland. It's a multiplayer arena game and the idea is that the game observes the shape of your defined play area in your room, as picked up by the HTC Vive and designated during your setup process. This play area is your Hover Junker ship which is piloted around the game world, where you'll fight it out with other players using your pistols - during set up you can fortify your ship with physical objects that you need to duck behind for cover during your shoot-outs!Here's the blurb from Steam, where the game is priced at £26.99:
"Engage in multiplayer VR gunfights that capture real gun play like no FPS you've played before. Pilot and fortify Hover Junkers as you physically walk, duck, dodge and aim in cross ship combat."

The Thrill Of The Fight

As the name referencing the classic anthem "Eye Of The Tiger" suggests, The Thrill Of The Fight is a boxing simulator which allows you to get into the ring and slug it out against an opponent. At present it's an early-phase tech-demo with a training session and a single competitor to fight against. Also, right now you can punch and dodge, but not block like your opponent can. As with all indie development projects nothing is concrete, but we've seen talk of a bigger campaign/career mode, with the developer, "fyian", posting on Reddit. They said, "I'm hoping to add in somewhere around 16 opponents total, all with their own unique personalities and attacks."They also added that a blocking mechanic for the player is under consideration. There seems to be a lot of demand for multiplayer but fyian has stated that they think this would be difficult to implement. TTOTF is available as a demo download from the official site but can be found on Stea; it is currently compatible with the HTC Vive. fyian has mentioned that on a commercial release game may be priced at around $7.99.

Spell FighterSpell Fighter is another indie tech-demo developed by Kubold which places you in the role of a kind of quasi-medieval fantasy "witch hunter" type character, think Van Helsing or Solomon Kane. You start off in a village, but exploring will quickly reveal some gribbly zombies and skeletons to deal with. You can defend yourself with a variety of spells, swords, spears, bows, and guns, and also summoning minions. However, the real meat of the game is in venturing out further to find the source of the monster invasion!The game is available for HTC Vive and Oculus Rift and can be installed via Steam.

Raw DataRaw Data is one of the more polished VR gaming experiences we've seen so far. Developed by Servios, it's available as an early-access title on Steam for the HTC Vive. The game's main mode is a co-operative mission where you can team up with another player to defend a location from increasingly tough swarms of killer robots. There's a wide range of weapons on top of your starting pistol and katana sword combination (oh yes), including shotguns, machine guns, and even a bow with explosive arrows. The game also features a competetive "duel" multiplayer mode.
Lightblade VROk, it's called Lightblade VR because it's not an official LucasArts/LucasFilm Star Wars product, but to all intents and purposes Lightblade VR is a Lightsabre simulator. We'll clear something else up straight away too - it doesn't include duelling with enemies or other players, unfortunately - what it does offer though is a spot of Jedi training against one of those little laser shooting drones, just like Luke Skywalker in the first movie. The aim is to deflect the incoming blasts, and you can select a number of difficulty modes from Rookie to Legend. Or if you'd rather you can just piss about waving one or two Lightsabres around, which is really all we're interested in, right? You can even change the colour of each Lightsabre individually. Neat.And yes, it's another Vive game on Steam!
Note that an official Lightsabre game is in development: Trials On Tatooine.

Waltz Of The WizardWaltz Of The Wizard is another sandbox game that may appeal to any Harry Potter fans out there. You play a Wizard at home in his tower. Here you're able to concoct potions, discover and cast spells to alter yourself or the world around you, and explore and interact with both your tower and...other dimensions! This game is free on Steam!
Vanishing Realms

Vanishing Realms is a somewhat cartoony action RPG in the vein of titles such as D&D, Zelda, and Diablo, but being unique for its VR control system. Go dungeon crawling in a 3D fantasy realm to fight skeletons and other monsters with swords, spells, and bows. Available on Steam for the HTC Vive as an early access title for £14.99 (visit the page for video).
Out Of Ammo
Out Of Ammo is a game developed by Dean Hall's (creator of DayZ) new studio RocketWerkz. It's still in development, but the game offers an interesting take on the Tower Defence genre where you are hovering over your base and able to assign soldiers, weapons, and resources to defend it. When things get manic, be prepared to lock-and-load, jumping into the first-person view of one of your soldier minions armed with assault rifles, sniper rifles, and machine gun emplacements. Compatible with the HTC Vive and priced at £14.99 on Steam."Four unique environments to try your skill on
- Construct defenses such as sandbags and watchtowers-Issue orders to your soldiers-Five different kinds of units each with special abilities-Possess any units directly to control their engagement-Call in artillery, airstrikes, and sniper targets-Fixed Machine guns, Grenades, and more"
Elite: DangerousNot so much a "VR game" per-se as it is an established mainstream title that was smartly developed with emerging VR in mind and has now been tweaked to allow compatibility with the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Elite: Dangerous' persistent multiplayer universe of intergalactic trading, war, bounty hunting, and piracy is not for the feint-hearted, but who can resist the lure of piloting their own spaceship in glorious, immersive, VR 3D? And with graphics this good as well!
theBlu: Encouter

theBlu: Encounter by Wevr is one of those VR "experiences" which lets you see what it's like getting up close and personal with various types of sea life without the inconvenience of travel, breathing equipment, or getting wet. Whales, fish, jellyfish, and sea anemones are all present for you to ogle, or prod with your virtual fingers (yes they do react).
Universe Sandbox² Pretty much what it says on the tin - Universe Sandbox lets you mess around with the building blocks of astrophysics in the depths of space; create planets, suns, or whole galaxies, form nebulas, build beautiful starmaps and cosmic spacescapes. Or, if youre feeling destructive, smash everything together into supernovas, create the next Big Bang, or chuck it all into a black hole! The game is available via early access on Steam for $24.99/£18.99.
The ClimbYou might have noticed that many of the games in this list are available on the HTC Vive, while a few of them are on the Oculus Rift AND the HTC Vive; it's fair to say the Vive seems to have pretty much taken over as the dominant VR platform for now. However, there are some games out there that were developed for the Oculus Rift first, and which don't appear to have switched to the Vive just yet. The Climb is one such title, and as the name suggests it is a VR climbing simulator, allowing you to scale some impressive cliffs and natural structures in an immersive environment without the worry of actual death! The graphics on this game look amazing, and it's currently only available for the Oculus Rift via the Oculus store; be warned that the devs describe the experience as "intense" and also it's not cheap as VR games go, with a full-retail level price tag of £39.99. That said, it does appear to be a very thoroughly and profressionall developed title. Frankly, we'd be surprised if this game didn't get wider VR device support (including the Gear VR and Vive) at some point.
Zombie Training Simulator

The descriptively titled Zombie Training Simulator is, as expected, a simulator in which you train to fight zombies. Yes. The game has some very fun cartoony graphics similar in to Plants Vs Zombies. Players can choose from a range of different course types, including survival and various trick shooting events such as time trials. You'll start off next to a bench full of weapons, including shotguns, pistols, machine guns, assault rifles, and explosives, which unlock as you kill more and more zombies in the various modes. You can also take advantage of environmental hazards such as gas canisters or petrol cans, and even throw slabs of meat to distract the ravenous hordes temporarily. The zombies themselves are a sort of cardboard cut-out variety to emphasise the "training simulator" aspect (as well as presumably saving on animation time and system resources!). Available on Steam for £14.99 and compatible with the HTC Vive.
Bonus: Tilt Brush VRNot really a game, but it is fun to mess around with. Google's VR proof-of-concept Tilt Brush is a 3D VR painting and creativity suite that literally lets you create virtual 3D sculptures or paintings in a virtual space. Because it's a VR app you can paint and sculpt with all kinds of materials artists might only dream of being able to use - lava, light, rocky earth, fabrics, fire, even snow. Creations can also be set up to be location based, effectively turning your living room into a virtual gallery for your art as VR "installations" viewable when the headset is worn. You can also export your art in more traditonal still images or animated gifs for people who don't have VR.
