Sony Xperia Eye Wearable Camera Proof-Of-Concept
[MWC 2016] Normally, when it comes to proof of concepts, these tend to be exciting to check out – simply because such devices look as though they could be part of the future, and deliver what might seem impossible at this point in time.

When Facebook announced that they would be acquiring Oculus VR in 2014, Minecraft’s creator Markus Persson reacted rather negatively by cancelling the Oculus Rift version of the game that was in development.
