New virtual reality technology promises to change the way you watch movies, play video games, and more!

During a developers conference over the weekend, Oculus Rift, a pioneer in the virtual reality field, announced its collaboration with Samsung. According to the New York Times, the Samsung Gear VR will combine Samsung’s upcoming Galaxy Note 4 smartphone with Oculus software “to create a portable virtual reality experience.” Additionally, Oculus will likely release its own headset in the coming year. On radio this morning, Glenn, Pat, and Jeffy discussed the impact virtual reality devices will have on various industries.

“There is a lot of talk about something called Oculus. It's virtual reality, and it is here… [I]t is something that is game-changing to everything,” Glenn said. “This is the kind of thing that I just want to share with you… Everything that we have grown up getting used to, it's over… And it doesn't have to be a bad thing, but we have to decide where we are going as a people.”

Virtual reality technology is already having a huge impact on the gaming industry. Soon enough, the capability of this equipment will play a role in movie making, education, tourism, the way people communicate with one another, and more.

From a business perspective, Glenn could see something like Oculus being quite useful in his day-to-day life. With offices in New York City, Dallas, Texas, Los Angeles, California, Columbus, Ohio, and Washington D.C., TheBlaze could begin to eliminate the physical barriers that exist via virtual reality technology.

“Right now, everybody gets onto a plane… [to] go to wherever. With Oculus, you don't need that. You can have an Oculus room set up to where… I sit down [and] I am virtual to everybody else or they are virtual to me,” Glenn said. “And it's like I am sitting down in this conference room… You are seeing the table. You are seeing you and everybody else at the table. We are all having a conference, and it is like we're there.”

In time, virtual reality developers believe they can get the technology to a point where people are completely immersed in this alternate universe. From hearing to seeing to smelling, there could come a time in which there is no reason to take a virtual reality headset or bodysuit off.

“Imagine if you could actually see it in this kind of detail on the other side of the world. You may never get to the Great Wall of China… but if I could go through a [virtual reality] tour and I could walk it… on a stair-climbing machine – I am seeing it, smelling it, I am feeling it, what difference does it make,” Glenn asked. “The real becomes unreal. Virtual reality will become better than reality. That's the problem.”

Glenn said he spoke with Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban about virtual reality technology, and he is concerned about the impact it could have on ticket sales. Why would someone go through the hassle of going to a sporting event or concert, if they could enjoy a potentially better experience from the comfort of their own home?

“Here's a guy who owns the Dallas Mavericks. He said, ‘Imagine, Glenn, right now, you are going to a baseball game or basketball game and you want to be a part of the crowd. That's the thing. You go to those because you want to be part of the crowd,’” Glenn explained. “’But if I can make it an Oculus experience, how do I keep the crowd going to the baseball game or the basketball game or the concert, when going to the concert is full of all kind of hassle?’”

A similar assumption can be extended to movie viewing. The technology could get to a point where no two viewing experiences are the same.

“You know how many times you would watch your favorite movie… if movies were made in such a way – with Oculus – that we are not watching what the characters are doing necessarily on screen… It would be unbelievable, and it changes everything.”

As Jeffy and Pat explained, such customization is already happening with video games.

“They are doing that with the games now because the game learns,” Pat said. “It sees what you did the first time around, and it changes your experience the second time around and the third. So no two experiences are ever the same. Even if you get to the end of the game and win it, the next time you play it, it is a difference experience. They are already doing that.”

The government of the Northern Territory of Australia is now running "mandatory supervised" COVID-19 quarantine facilities, and there are a lot of conflicting reports going around about what's really happening in these "camps." Are they internment camps, summer vacation spots, or something in between?

On "The Glenn Beck Program" Monday, Glenn and Producer Stu Burguiere discussed the case of 26-year-old Australian resident Hayley Hodgson, who detailed her experience at the Center of National Resilience in Howard Springs during a recent interview with UnHerd. They compared Hodgson's description of the Howard Springs facility to images of bikini-clad Australians in quarantine who appear to be on holiday at the same facility.

So, what's really going on with Australia's COVID quarantine facilities? Watch the video clip below to hear Glenn and Stu break down what we know so far:

Glenn Beck: Here's how YOU can fix the Great Reset's housing crisis

How's the housing market looking these days? Because under Build Back Better (aka the Great Reset), investors are grabbing up homes at a record pace.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn discussed a recent Redfin News report, which shows that almost one in five homes sold in the U.S. during the third quarter of 2021 was purchased by an investment firm, and many are paying tens of thousands of dollars over the asking price.

"Think of that, one in every five homes that are sold are going to a big investment firm," Glenn said. "Investors bought more than 90,000 homes, totaling more than $63 billion, representing 18% of all homes sold in the quarter. The numbers broke all records."

"The same factors have pushed more Americans to rent, which also creates opportunities for investors, because investors typically turn the homes they purchase into rentals," he continued. "And now they can charge higher rents. Rent for single-family homes surged by more than 10% in the 12 months, through September. The fastest annual rent inflation in 16 years."

"And nearly 77% purchased were bought in an all-cash transaction," Glenn added. "That's not your average person. These investment firms, like BlackRock, are going in and buying entire neighborhoods. They are the people that come in, and say, 'I'll give you $70,000 over the asking price.' ... Now, why would investment firms think they will just be able to make money paying $70,000 over the asking price? What is it that they know, that you don't know? Could they know, as the Great Reset states, that by 2030, you will own nothing and you'll like it?"

On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck exposes the radical plan to flip the United States from capitalism to socialism and into a lawless nation. It's an old strategy that mirrors a communist Cold War playbook. The goal now, as it was then, is this: How do they get a revolution without all that civil war stuff? It’s a five-step plan, and we're deep into several of the main steps RIGHT NOW.

Our justice system has been infiltrated by woke leftists, and something called "the progressive prosecutor movement" is methodically transforming Main Street USA into Main Street Gotham City. We can see it all over the country in places like San Francisco, with the Waukesha massacre as a terrifying glimpse into more of what's coming. And the media? They're currently running interference in one of the largest misinformation operations in history.

It’s happening at the city, state, AND federal levels. And President Trump might be one of the biggest victims of them all, a fact that even Trump critic Joe Rogan has realized on the Russia collusion hoax: “No one is being held accountable!” That ends now, as Glenn calls on Americans to push back on the lies that keep us divided in a cold civil war.

A "one-world government" is being formed right now and it’s called the Great Reset, Glenn Beck said on the radio program Monday. And now, rebuild plans for the fire-damaged Notre Dame Cathedral hint at the formation of a global church, too.

In this clip, Glenn detailed plans for the iconic, 850-year-old church’s "woke" renovations that sound more like a 'politically correct Disneyland' complete with a "discovery trail," "emotional spaces," and 14 themed chapels.

"Notre Dame is now being built back better as a 'woke theme park' dedicated to environmentalism and social justice," Glenn explained.

"There will be several different chapels within, [for example] a chapel for social justice, and then chapel for environmental justice," he continued. "Which leads me to this point. The 'one-world government' is being formed, right now. One-world government. It is being formed and it's called The Great Reset."

Glenn went on to predict that one of the first steps in the direction of a one-world government will be a push for a global religion.

"I think we're seeing the first church now being dedicated to the new global religion — and it is social justice, environmental justice, and all this gobbledygook. We all know, it's not just wrong, it is dangerous. That's the first church, the cathedral of Notre Dame, in France, is the first global church. Mark my words. Christian, Jews, Muslims ... this global church will bring darkness unlike you've ever seen."
