I've been away from the blogosphere, or rather mediasphere for three days, and I noticed that it is still here.
I spent those moments with my kids/> and I've grown to like spending my time offline. We should all try it.
The resolution of the offline images is incredible--much better than on a plasma HD. It is like you are really there.
We went up to Mount Shasta and you could really feel the cold at night, 14 below, and the sensation of the ice crystals from a snowball down the back of the neck was incredibly realistic. I felt the ice slide all the way down my spine . . .
And then when we we were driving up the mountain, we hit an icy patch and slid sideways into a snowbank, that flipped us around like an LP on a turntable. We collected our thoughts, and went back down the hill, but the feeling of crashing into a snowbank was very realistic.
We bought a sled and found an incline and played. And the sensation of being with my kids and goofing around was fantastic, incredibly realistic and three dimensional and very memorable.
It was a great Presidents Day weekend, I hope yours was too!
