Get Real! // Unboxing an HTC Vive

Before the 28th of August 2017 I had not tried any kind of virtual reality device. Then I went to get an HTC Vive virtual reality headset, since there was a significant (-$350cdn before tax) price drop not long before. This post is a look at the unpacking process and a few notes about the device.

Dirt Rally // Pikes Peak Hillclimb Record Attempt

With 152 turns over 19.9km, the real-life world record for the Pikes Peak hillclimb course is a staggering 8:13 by Sebastien Loeb in 2013. Using the same car in Dirt Rally and after a lot of practice, I beat the record time by 9 seconds to come in at 8:04. Other people have done significantly better in-game, but I am very satisfied that I managed to get to this short a time. Below is the video of my run.
