CEOs Experiencing The 'Realities' Of Homelessness Through VR Is The Definition Of Out Of Touch!

Filed under: AustraliasticTech TalkTwitterCharityViral: News

no title

Sometimes we must walk in someone else's shoes to gain perspective. But if those shoes are too dirty and depressing to wear, walking around in virtual reality should be good enough.

That's what executives at the CEO Sleepout learned when this year's charity event used the power of VR headsets to break the cycle of homelessness!

The Australian charity initiative from the St. Vincent de Paul Society brings together Aussie CEOs every year to "sleep out" for one night and experience for themselves how the homeless live every day.

The event rakes in money to the charity, with people able to "sponsor" one of the hundreds of CEOs roughing it through the cold with nothing but a piece of cardboard to lie on.

But one of the new additions to this year's event sparked outrage online: a virtual reality experience that allowed CEOs to "get a glimpse of the realities faced by the people who experience this every day."

The CEO Sleepout account tweeted out a video of CEOs getting a taste of homelessness through the window of their VR headsets, and Twitter users quickly harpooned organizers for being (quite literally) out of touch with reality:

Gwyneth Paltrow's Goop Called Out By NASA Over Latest Bullshit Product!

Filed under: Gwyneth PaltrowTech TalkScience!Lifestyle

Gwyneth Paltrow needs to be more careful about her product endorsements!

The actress' lifestyle blog Goop is known for offering some new age, eye-roll-inducing health advice — but one product promoted by the brand just got exposed by NASA for being a load of B.S.!!

On Goop's site, you can find an endorsement for stickers called Body Vibes, which claimed to use "NASA space suit material" to "rebalance the energy frequency in our bodies." Because if there's one thing astronauts need to worry about in space, it's keeping their chakras balanced.

Sounds like a total scam? We know. But Goop is all about endorsing open-minded products without any cynicism… or research, apparently.

The site claims these Body Vibes "target imbalances" of your body frequency, due to everyday stresses and anxiety, using "the same conductive carbon material NASA uses to line space suits so they can monitor an astronaut's vitals during wear."

Wow, those are some fancy science words — and they name drop NASA! This can't possibly be B.S., right?

Wrong. When asked about the product, a rep from NASA's spacewalk office told Gizmodo that spacesuits aren't even made with this "conductive carbon material lining"!

Even worse, the stickers — which sell as high as $120 for a 24-pack — claim to battle

The seasons are changing, and that summer breeze is blowing some hot classics right to your Netflix queue!

Next month, the streaming service will be serving up some major blockbusters to get you through those dog days of summer.

WTF? Netflix Might Get Banned In Australia!

Filed under: TV NewsAustraliasticTech TalkGIFsNetflix

Uhhh...

Australians might find themselves without Netflix if the country applies its new local quota to streaming services!

In case you didn't know, Australia already has a quota requiring 55% of what airs on TV between the hours of 6 A.M. and midnight to be local Australian content.

Unfortunately, Netflix and other streaming services are being looked at as "challenging existing business models" by not having the same rule apply — and they may soon be banned if they don't adhere to any new quotas.

But how will our Aussie friends get their Netflix and chill? Sigh.

The Department of Communication and Arts explains:

"Content produced in Australia, or under Australian creative control, reflects and shapes our national identity, character and cultural diversity. When exported, Australian content promotes an Australian view of the world and showcases our cultural and creative talents. It also delivers economic benefits and encourages tourism."

The government will still need to review any quota, but we can't imagine how people will react if Netflix doesn't make the cut.

After all, would they really go so far as to ban the site and app??

Guess only time will tell!
