The other interesting VR headset is the Oculus Rift's CV1 when it finally gets released. A bit more enclosed than this other headset but looks like it's shaping up to be something really special.

No, just no. :rolleyes:

 

But when it becomes more mainstream think of this: you like your superbikes right, well with VR you'll slip on a pair of goggles and be able to see the action as if you were right on the shoulder of the rider in glorious 3D, same for F1 and any other spectator sport.

This really will take off this time as the grunt that's needed to make it successful is accessible now.

Yep, one demo they did with the full on VR was effectively scan from the top of a very tall building and then project that into the headset. The wearer is then invited to walk out on a plank laid onto carpet and admire the view.

Virtually everyone was terrified and even though they knew they weren't standing at height, the illusion is that great that they fell over, ripped the headset off or felt sick.

Pretty good then... ^^
