Not only because its one of very few sources of free information about corruption and the abuse of power in Putins Russia, but also because its a sign that Navalny is not just a famous media person, he has dozens of young women and men perfectly capable of carrying on his investigative work. Maybe they are less charismatic than he, but they are proof that the Russian opposition is not only virtual and cannot be silenced with the poisoning of its leader. POISONED KREMLIN CRITIC ALEXEI NAVALNY OUT OF COMA AND RESPONSIVE: GERMAN HOSPITAL Navalnys spokeswoman Kira Yarmysh and fellow team member Georgi Alburov front the Tatarstan film, and said they were followed and harassed while shooting by men who blocked their paths with quad bikes or lurked nearby. Some dramatic images along those lines appear in the film.Yarmysh talks about how Tatarstan was supposed to be one of Navalnys stops on his late summer swing through Russian regions ahead of elections. Navalny was lobbying forSmart Voting. He argued that ifhe and people like him couldnt run in elections in Russia, the next best thing wasto simply vote for a candidate who is not from the same party as President Vladimir Putin, United Russia. Navalnyfamously called it the party of crooks and thieves and wantedto chip away at its monopoly on power howeverpossible.He believes Smart Voting can eventually dislodge it from power. GERMANY SUGGESTS HALT TO RUSSIA PIPELINE PROJECT, SEEKS COOPERATION WITH NAVALNY POISONING INVESTIGATION In the documentary from Kazan, the capital of Tatarstan, Navalnys team keeps up his stylistic pace with drone video of what itidentifiesas the palatial homes of the regional president and his family, punctuated withvideoof the vast collection of fancy watches from Patek Phillipe to Breguet worn byleaderRustam Minnikhanov. Even if you dont understand Russian, it is compelling TV, Zafesova said. Navalnys investigations have evolved over the years from merely facts and analysis on his blog to full-scale movies.He invented a whole new way to oppose power, a mix of media and politics which is very important in a censored media environment like Russia and fills the void of free media as well as free debate and an independent judicial system.Navalnys videos are funny, clever, precise and shocking, not just angry denunciations of the wrongdoings of government.

We're going to find out what's good and bad about virtual reality in the months and years to come, personally I don't want to have to sit there wearing a virtual reality helmet for more than 20 minutes.
Eye-tracking is game-changing in VR. It allows for much more complex and subtle interaction than has been possible previously. By knowing exactly where the user is looking, characters in virtual reality can react to your gaze and return it naturally or avoid it or respond or question.
