Yodamom Finds her Force

The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.
Today and tomorrow are yet to be said.
The chances, the changes are all yours to make.
The mold of your life is in your hands to break.

Comic books come to VR through an app

You may have felt immersed in a comic book before, but never quite so literally as this. Madefire has released a free Gear VR preview app that lets you read its Motion Books in virtual reality. As you might guess, it's all about depth. Pages now fill your view, and creators can add 3D layers to individual panels. While it's not real 3D (your childhood dreams of exploring comic universes will have to wait), it beats staring at completely flat pictures on a PC or tablet.

You'll initially get just a smattering of sample comics to read (such asInjustice: Year One and Madefire's own Mono: The Old Curiosity Shop), but Madefire hopes to add some level of VR support to its entire 10,000-plus comic catalog by the holidays. Are you going to regularly read comics with a headset from now on? Probably not, especially since Madefire's library only represents a slice of the comic book world. However, it's a good example of how VR can boost an ordinary reading experience.
