Baba Yaga on Oculus Quest | Oculus
Being an American I don’t hear of many experiences based on Russian folklore, which is a shame since Baba Yaga has always been one of my favorite stories from that part of the world since she was neither a hero or a villain. This reimagining of the folk tale is well worth the price tag, with a cast that knows how to draw you into a good story.

There is a lot of buzz this week about Apple's Augmented Reality glasses announcement and is a sign of the oncoming rush of new gear that will be hitting the market within the next two years. The last issue of Other Realities at the end of 2020 focused on some overlooked gear, but was a small representation of the headsets and other peripherals we can purchase. I'm sure the Apple experience will do it's part in evolving what is possible in AR, but I've never been to hung up on hardware specs. In the right hands a talented storyteller can make hand shadows dance and tell a story more interesting than a million dollar production team.
Though I am looking forward to moving deeper into a shared metaverse that only AR/MR/XR will be able to make possible. Fingers crossed that it's not the one from Daniel Suarez (See Daemon and FreedomTM).
