4K is great if you're at 110°, but the full ~180° will need more. Foveated rendering and other magic make it workable.

Wow he's really short sighted there. He's literally saying the form factor isn't ever going to change from the prototypes we have now.

It'll probably be fun, but way too far into superhero territory. Starting to look generic now.

The customer experience is still way better with piracy, they wont see a shift until this changes.

Was it any surprise a UK bangster was the one doing illegal stuff like that? Stock markets are completely out of control

It was a guy who lived at his parents house using HFT algos.

I don't understand how this can work, EA told me the power of the Cloud is needed for cities of this size.

When reading this, I couldn't help having a visual of a bunch peeps in a Starbucks sitting and standing around wearing their mobile VRs looking like complete tools!!! Rolleyes2


But isn't this what all older generations say? And the generation that grow up with things just uses it and it becomes the norm? Not really saying VR at Starbucks is a real thing, but I get mobile and VR, it doesn't mean you have to be out and about. It means you can do it all in one with no pc or wires needed. I get the cleanness of it.

Except when people start walking into stuff, traffic, breaking stuff, etc. And the come the inevitable lawsuits of everything from slip and falls to wrongful death suits. They're not considering the reality of this at all. They're just caught up in 'Whoa, won't this be cool?!'

Yeah they done all of this and spent 2 billion without talking to the lawyers on payroll. There will be disclaimers, that would be like "I can sue Chevy if I change the radio station and get in a wreck because I wasn't paying proper attention. But since they offer that possibility, they should be the responsible one."

I personally take mobile VR as a very clean way of doing it no fuss, no muss. Obviously it will need as much power as needed as time moves along to make it better and better.

I also don't think all VR will be about having to move for it to work, I'd go as far to say that will be more exception than rule. My guess is most PC players want a sitting solution more often than not.

The real world will fade in if you get too close to objects.

I pretty much did everything there was in the main game and I have 36 hours clocked on that alone so I'm not complaining for the $26 I paid for the CE.

Nearing the end myself at 35 hours, random destruction is just too tempting after a long day at work

VR wont be using panels in the future, they are a stop gap until momentum is gained to produce more tailored technology.

Currently I do not even understand how the book "Lolita" does not fall under this or any written fantasy. (or even Game of Thrones)

Or any comprehensive history book for that matter.

Blue, it's be nice if you included some form of notice that articles are fake for those not too quick on the uptake.

Which article are you referring to? The "living on Google campus" story is on BBC and Reuters, so if it's a fake, it's fooled the major news orgs.

That one is true, at least for the Dublin campus.

Complete dross.

The article says that 7% would sleep, how is that nobody?

Also, I'm not sure the author is aware that 7 is a larger number than 5.3.

8.3% of people say that they would probably read, 5.3% say that they would watch TV (that’s probably a gross underestimate) and only 7% of respondents say that they would sleep.

Anyone know if this works with Oculous or Oculous dk2? Once my DK2 gets here I think I'm going to have to buy this. Need stuff to try with it!

Well on the Oculus reddit forum quite a few people are claiming that ED in the Rift DK2 is the best gaming experience they have ever had.

Edit, just one example :
I stepped in to E:D last night with the DK2 and nothing can compare to the experience. I ceased to be a gamer and became a spacer.

It was my Contact moment - "No - no words. No words to describe it. Poetry! They should've sent a poet. So beautiful. So beautiful... I had no idea."

My first dogfight scenario left me speechless, the gorgeous cockpit lives and breathes around you, your head snaps upwards to track the target while lasers pulse illuminating everything, shields light up as they absorb the impact - and you're there, right in the middle of it all and its simply incredible.

If you have a DK2 or will get one - This, you MUST know this feeling


I tried it last night, it is without a doubt the killer app of VR. No other gaming experience comes close, I don't even ... I don't have the words.

Kinect is really high latency (its quite outdated technologically speaking). Conceptually similar, tailored for VR technologies are on the way though.
