I really hope Valve is successful here. We need this to off balance the console domination. I'm a bit of a Valve fan-boy. So my opinion is extremely biased.

News Comments > John Carmack Developing Oculus VR Games
14. Re: John Carmack Developing Oculus VR Games Jan 8, 2014, 13:59 BobBob
 
Is it not possible for the MetaPro to go into full immersion mode or is there a potential for an augmented Oculus VR? I'm not trying to knock the Oculus Rift. I would imagine having the ability to experience full immersion or augmented (as a choice) via the same device would be ideal. It doesn't have to be to simply one or the other -- but rather a device that encapsulates both concepts into a synthesis of practical function.

Typically when you apply the Hegelian dialectic (that can be applied to most break-through and popular technologies), there will be something that evolves from both but is truly neither.

Unless you're participating toward a non-profit (be sure the CEO isn't making a huge salary) you can pretty much be sure there is something in it for the commercial organization. Charity events are typically tax write-offs, another form of advertising or a liquidation for a sustainable profit.

Don't think I'm against charities. There are some wonderful ones out there. Be very skeptical and critical. There are many snakes in the fruitful garden.

Good to see they got JC on board. The man has brought us the best open-sourced engines. We shall be eternally grateful to him for his fundamental contributions to the open-source gaming communities.

Critical question:

How is Oculus VR superior to something like this:

To address this, we ask that participants grant us a nonexclusive license as a measure of protection.

Protection against what? For example? As far I know, this still means they can make profit off the work -- but it also means the author can make profit off the same work in other directions. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

On January 3, 2014, Phil Everly died at Providence St. Joseph Medical Center in Burbank, California, at the age of 74. The cause of his death was complications attributed to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (a combination of emphysema and bronchitis), brought on by a lifetime of smoking.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Everly_Brothers

Smoking is really nasty. Emphysema is horrible. I watched my grandfather slowly die from emphysema in the hospital. He was suffering in the extreme. Before that he was using an oxygen tank. His doctors kept telling him to stop smoking but he was stubborn and developed emphysema.

Smoking is a selfish and degrading habit that not only hurts the smoker, but also the people around them. Fortunately, at least here, more laws are being passed to disallow second-hand smoke.

My heating and electric bill are typically $15 to $20 monthly each, all year round. I never turn on the heater. I typically open the windows for sunlight; though I prefer to go outside and work. I only turn lights on during the nighttime.

Why not look at Arizona, New Mexico, et al. Hot, sunny, without the earthquakes. I'd love to live in either.

Do they have a 22 mile bicycle path on the beach?

This video captures it fairly well:

How much does your house cost? For what size?

I never discuss how much I make or spend. Let's just say I am extremely cheap in most things other than business, investments and living space. I drive a Prius and shop at dollar stores. I'd rather invest the money in the market and property. I know I'm not alone. Often I see Mercedes, BMW, Audi, and Bentley cars parked at the dollar store.

I was born and raised in California. I have traveled around the world, including many parts of the USA. I've experienced severe climates, especially in Northern Europe and the US East through the Mid-West. I moved back for one reason -- I seriously hated the climates in other locations. I call them climatic prisons. I may move to Hawaii someday, but the South Bay fits my needs for now. I encourage anyone to consider living in California or Hawaii for a year. You will experience the freedom to be outside all year round. I believe you'll never want to return anywhere else. Think it's expensive? Not at all. Your habits and lifestyle will completely change from spending too much on TV and video games to going outside to free parks, beaches, forests, and other outdoor locations.

I really liked the first two Fallout games. The rest of series became over simplified, buggy, and boring.

The Top 10 Grossing Films Of 2013.

Seeing Gravity on the list heartens me.

Gravity is a great movie at the theater in 3D. It's one of the few movies where 3D benefits and enhances the story's experience. I can't imagine enjoying it as much in 2D or on a home theater.
