Microsoft has just revealed that it will be jumping into the virtual reality game. Microsoft will partner with well-known tech brands like Asus, Dell, and Lenovo to create Microsoft Partner VR Headsets ($299) which will utilize the Windows 10 Creators Update expected to be released next year. The headsets will start at $299 and move up.The headsets are expected to be introduced in December with a release date sometime in spring 2017.No specs are currently available but the headsets will utilize technology from Microsoft's HoloLens project which will enable the headsets to work without a complicated setup like Oculus Rift which requires external sensors placed throughout the room. The headset will include six degrees of freedom and inside-out tracking internally.Now don't expect an Oculus Rift experience for $299.

In the shower? On the Toilet? Want to avoid pesky sells people? The new iDoorCam ($127) lets you answer your door from your iPhone.

I love Deus bikes. Every time they come out with something new they push a new envelope I didn't even know existed. The Pegasus By Deus Ex Machina ($TBA) started off as a hardtail Kawasaki W650. Jeremy from Deus stripped the bike down to its bare bones and started off by putting a 21-inch tire in front and a 17 incher in the rear. Each of the rims and hubs were powder coated in a bright orange hue. Additional updates included a Bates style head light, custom mirrors, a customized Yamaha SR400 fuel tank, and a motor coated in a beautiful black satin. The client who order the bike has two CBR1000 track-only Fireblades and '69 Camaro in the garage sporting eye bleed color schemes. The fluorescent orange on the new bikes wheels matches the Fireblades perfectly. If you've got a bike that needs an awesome facelift, give Deus a call. They'll produce something beyond your wildest expectations.
