Over the last several years the long-running SIGGRAPH computer graphics conference served as an important marker of immersive computing’s march toward mainstream. Just a few years ago I found the Oculus meeting room hidden in a corner of the show floor where they were showing the HD prototype of the Rift featuring improved resolution. As increasingly impressive developer kits and then consumer units arrived, VR spread out from that corner to overtake so many of the other floor presentations from both researchers and established commercial giants. Now in its third year, the VR Village serves as a central area for researchers and content creators to present their work. Two years ago it was where Ken Perlin and his team from... Read More

Pull it out early and you’ll have to pay taxes and penalties. Understandably, that lengthy lockdown doesn’t always sit well with younger investors. Sure, you may not need that money now, but there could be plenty of future circumstances in which you might.

For many years now, Long Islanders have found their own way to address two problems endemic to the region: the growing number of homeowners having trouble keeping up with their mortgages and the urgent need for more affordable housing.

Almost four decades after some Long Island towns began cautiously issuing permits for accessory apartments in single-family homes, this housing type is broadly accepted in Suffolk County even as it remains controversial in much of Nassau.
