Today marks the 58th presidential inauguration of the 45th president. Did you know that during Obama’s inauguration in 2009, Chief Justice John Roberts mixed up some of the words in the oath. This caused them to repeat the oath the very next day at the White House.

MLK Day!

January 16, 2017

“People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don’t know each other; they don’t know each other because they have not communicated with each other.” – Martin Luther King Jr.

 

Today we honor the man that embodies the definition of what it means to Escape Ordinary. At Breakout Games we see the importance of communication and working together to accomplish a goal. He held these beliefs firm and showed no fear in expressing them.

6 Reasons Why Virtual Reality is Here to Stay

January 6, 2017

6 Reasons Why Virtual Reality is Here to Stay 

In 2016, VR hit the market of technology and it hit hard.

  1. Many major companies announced their involvement in the new market. One of these companies was Facebook. They bought Oculus VR for $2 Billion. Oculus VR is, as you can probably guess, a Virtual Reality company. They created and developed a VR headset that hit the consumer market early 2016. Following the release of the Rift, the Oculus Touch motion controllers were released in early December of 2016.
  2. Sony also got their hands dirty in this new market by releasing their PlayStation VR along with the PlayStation Pro to power the higher quality experience. By the end of 2016, Sony ended up selling about 1.4 million headsets. Which is extremely impressive considering it was released in October of that year.
  3. HTC and Valve (the creators of Steam) teamed up to develop the HTC Vive, the first VR headset to market with motion controllers. This created a healthy competition in the PC VR market.
  4. Samsung teamed up with Oculus to release the Gear VR with Samsung’s Galaxy S6 and newer devices. The platform now consistently has 1 million plus monthly active users. This makes Samsung the leader of the mobile VR market.
  5. Microsoft is developing the new Xbox code-named Project Scorpio. It will supposedly be able to power high-end PC quality virtual reality experiences while also being at an affordable consumer price.
  6. Google released their Daydream View mobile VR headset/operating system with a simple motion controller to go along with the Pixel phone. This creates a compelling experience for a compelling price while also looking appealing to most consumers.

 

What experience have you had with VR? If you haven’t, would you be willing to give it a try?

Diet Smarter With These Tips!

January 2, 2017

Want to lose weight this year? Here’s a few tips that will help you stay on track!


  • Get more sleep! A good nights rest is always beneficial to your health. When trying to lose those extra lbs, a good nights rest will give you the energy to follow through with the next tip!
  •  Try to work out for 1 hour at least 5 days a week! Also, make sure to drink plenty of water other wise, you won’t have the power to finish through.
  • Don’t eat more calories than you’re supposed to. There’s an awesome app, available for both iPhone and Android, that will help you stay on track with your calories and help you set goals! It’s called Myfitnesspal! Seriously, it’s awesome and very easy to use. It makes counting calories easy and fun!
  • Don’t weigh yourself too much. If you do it too frequently, then you can become discouraged because you aren’t seeing immediate results. Do it about 1 time a week and you’ll see better results that way.
  • Set daily goals. Big or small, daily goals will help you get through the week and you’ll feel better each day you accomplish them!

 

These are just some small things to keep in mind. We hope that these tips will help you through your journey this year!
