The New Reality of Gaming

Finally, a way to travel to new worlds, fight dangerous aliens, and go on insane adventures all without having to leave your couch. The idea of virtual reality used to seem like far off, science fiction, turn-all-of-humanity-into-absent-minded-lazy-bums, but now several companies are making that dream (pause for pun) a reality. Companies like Sony and Oculus VR are carving the path to making VR gaming the new norm. The concept of virtual reality is pretty simple, one puts on a goggle like headset and suddenly you’re immersed into the world of whichever specially designed game you’re playing. From then on, you are essentially apart of the game.

In a triumphant 6-3 decision on June 25, 2015 by the Supreme Court in the King v Burwell case, the Affordable Care Act created by the Obama administration will continue to help low-income Americans pay for health insurance. More than six million American citizens across 36 states were at risk of losing their subsidies - and therefore their medical coverage - if the Supreme Court had accepted the challenge brought up by King.

Last Friday was a monumental day in history for all of us here not just in sunny oceanside Santa Barbara, and not just in California, but for all individuals across the fifty United States of America. On June 26, 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court declared in a historic ruling that same-sex couples reserve the same right to marry as any other couples. It was perhaps one of the most, if not most, controversial and emotional rulings in the history of the United States.

While it’s not the first ever piece of wearable technology, the Apple Watch is definitely the most talked about and it was one of Apple’s most anticipated releases in the company’s history. Investors, tech bloggers, fans of Apple, Apple’s competitors, and just about everyone else waited for months to see if the watch would really measure up to the claims made by CEO Tim Cook last year when he announced the watch. And now that it’s been out for a few months, watch owners are voicing their opinions.

On Tuesday May 19th, a Plains All American Pipeline onshore pipe carrying thousands of gallons of crude oil ruptured near Refugio Beach, releasing an estimated 105,000 gallons of the substance into the surrounding area. Experts believe over 20,000 gallons found its way to the ocean, forcing the closure of the state run beach and the surrounding campgrounds. The oil slick now stretches across 9 miles of pristine Pacific water and near 9 miles of California’s best beaches are covered in the foul smelling, black chemical. Cleanup began immediately although no would be volunteers have been officially permitted to assist in the cleanup due to potential health hazards. However, we Santa Barbarians care so much about our home that many have grabbed their buckets and shovels and taken to the beach anyways.

Purple jacaranda trees line the streets of Santa Barbara and bright hues of pinks and oranges paint the sky during warm, tranquil sunsets. Spring is in the air – and this could only mean one thing: Santa Barbara Bowl 2015 concert season. With an eclectic array of 20+ shows lined up for the year, SB Bowl kicked off the season with a spectacular sold-out show by British indie rock band, alt-J, and special guests, Jungle, on Tuesday, April 14. Next up on the calendar is KJEE’s 11th Annual Summer Round Up featuring Of Monsters and Men, Banks, Walk The Moon, Family of the Year, and The Blues & Greys on Sunday, May 17 at 5:00 pm. For a full list of upcoming shows at the Bowl, visit the concerts page.

The SB Bowl has been hard at work to make this year’s concert experience the best yet! New improvements to the venue include a new lower plaza featuring a new walkway, public restrooms, and the official location to retrieve will call tickets. There are also new dining options available for hungry concert-goers, as well as a complimentary bike valet for those doing their part for Mother Earth.

Oniracom’s latest collaboration with AIGA Santa Barbara happened this past weekend, when CEO Jacob Tell and Art Director Tad Wagner reprised their roles as reviewers at AIGA SB’s annual Portfolio Day. For those of you who might not know, AIGA is the professional association for design, and AIGA Santa Barbara is one of 70 chapters across the nation. For me, one of many cool benefits of being AIGA SB President is being able to include Oniracom in our design-related, educational, and networking events for the local creative community.

Photo Shoot Mondays - Santa Barbara Bar

Author: hannahr
POSTED AT 03:04 PM

Mondays don’t typically have the reputation for being the best day of the week, but yesterday, we had a great day! Oniracom spent all day with our new client, the Santa Barbara Bar, to do a lifestyle photo shoot in the beautiful Santa Barbara. Working with the talented photographer Lexus Gallegos, we are creating a campaign for the tasty and nutritious bars. We are excited to be working with this amazing bar brand that’s local to our hometown!

Santa Barbara Bar founder, Peter Gaum has owned a wholesale bakery in Santa Barbara for 20 yeas. He created the bars as a delicious and healthy snack for friends and family, but it has turned into a local phenomenon, taking the area by storm. Not only are the bars full of flavor, but they are also gluten-free, a good source of protein and fiber, and contain no added soy protein of refined sugars. Right now there are three flavors: Coconut Almond, Peanut Chocolate Cherry, and Cranberry White Chocolate. We thank Santa Barbara Bar for stocking Oniracom full of these delicious bars, because we can’t stay out of the kitchen!

Check out the Santa Barbara Bar website here to see where you can find the bars-in store (or order online). Below are some of pictures from our photo shoot, check them out!

This past Sunday marked the end of the 2015 Santa Barbara Earth Day Festival, and it was a remarkable success! Thousands of people came out to Alameda Park in Santa Barbara to learn about how to make a difference in the environment while enjoying tasty foods, shopping at the eco-marketplace, and attending a multitude of concerts and events.

Jacob, Mike and Sean worked hard all week to make sure our Storywall platform was ready for the big weekend! Storywall connected festivalgoers with all the exciting things happening throughout the event such as live music set times, tips for being environmentally friendly, and more. Everyone enjoyed interacting with the platform by sending in photos to be displayed on-screen and by participating in contests with awesome prizes including local gifts from the farmers market and an electric bicycle!

Overall, Earth Day and Oniracom’s participation with Storywall couldn’t have gone better. Thank you to everyone who played a role in this year’s festival, we can’t wait until next year! Check out some of our photos from Earth Day below.

“SONOS”


Sonos has been a wireless stereo powerhouse in Santa Barbara for over a decade, reinventing audio for the digital age. Here at Oniracom, we’ve been beefing up our music system with Sonos gear since January, and it’s definitely made an impact.

“After I listened to classic albums on our Sonos such as Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon, The Doors’ Morrison Hotel, and The Beatles’ White Album I heard new things in the music I never had,” said our CEO Jacob Tell.
