From birthday parties and sporting events to an overnight campout or trip to an unfamiliar city, there really is an app – or, in most cases, a whole list of apps – designed to take your experience to the next level. So, with Coachella, one of the largest annual music festivals in the U.S., kicking off in California this weekend, I got to thinking. What are the best apps to have as you hit the concert trail this summer? What if you want to create and edit your own video on the spot?

I chose my path through the story by simply settling my eyes on a question that seemed interesting. I learned about a team of engineers who were working to visualize music as art. As I moved my head, I could spin around the audio-driven visuals. When I saw an individual speaking on screen, I could glance down to better understand their credentials on a sort-of virtual dossier. This was my first trip into the Oculus […]

A little bit of research and some major Google Maps help. Are you planning a trip to a new-to-you-city anytime soon? Here are my tips for traversing a new town. Get social.
