    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    Many folks are trying to equate VR to revolutionizing gaming. I tend to see gaming as an afterthought. VR will revolutionize the way we live our lives. From military applications, Job applications, Education applications, Tourist applications, the opportunity to open up new markets of...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    I always thought 3d vision, 3d TV's and even 4K tvs are just a shotgun approach to finding the next new revolutionary medium of entertainment. None stuck. As for VR, If we include the Virtual boy as the start of the VR age, then we can argue it's been in the making for 25 years. And it still is...

    About wet my pants in VR

    I'm on the Oculus touch. I don't get a laser pointer per se, but when my hook is able to attach to something, I get a circle telling me it's a valid target. I'v had the game for 3 days and have so far gotten through about 20 minutes of it. The game brings out my fear of heights to the fullest...

    Patience Young Padawan. You're too into the here and now. When you have Facebook, Google, Apple, Sony, MSFT, STEAM, Nvidia and every other industry giant seeing the light at the end of the tunnel regarding VR, it's hard to bet against them. They know where this is going. Zuckerberg already told...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    Here's how I look at it. If traditional gaming is always going to be the leading gaming format, that would logically conclude that there will be a CoD 20, CoD 50, or Battlefield 10, Battlefield 25.....I mean seriously gaming has basically exhausted all creative avenues. What else could there...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    2017 / 2018 is going to be content overload IMO. Old or dying studios suddenly have an avenue to make money by porting old stuff over to VR. Imagine 25 years of classic games ported to VR.....head explosion.... I actually bought the Rift off Ebay for rediculous amounts of money right when it...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    Well, if you have had that much experience with VR and don't like it, perhaps the simplest explanation is not that VR is a niche, but you are a niche..... As for replacing traditional gaming....when the first cars rolled out, peeps swore it would never replace horses. It seems to me your entire...

    About wet my pants in VR

    Yeah, I'm afraid of heights as well. This game is utterly over the top. My hands are sweatin so much, it might short out the controllers. Right now, I can only do it for about 5 minutes before i got to put it down. The worst for me is not the flying around, but the hanging on a tree and then...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    Pretty sure you just proved to everyone that has VR that you don't have a clue. It's like trying to explain what something smells like if you have never smelled it. Think you are still thinking on a 2d plane. With VR, even the most mundane and boring tasks like changing a light bulb is now...

    Constellation Tracking Could Be a Long-Term Mistake for Oculus

    The last great tech that changed the world and elevated whole economies was the dawn of the computer age back in the 90's. I think VR is even bigger than that. And companies know it. And the tech this time around will evolve much faster than people think, just because there is so much money to...

    About wet my pants in VR

    WoW. Played Windlands for the first time on Oculus Touch. Had no idea what i was getting into. Played it standing. Had to put it down after 5 minutes, LOL. Have not felt that much RAW fear in a very long time. I was grasping the trigger like I was hanging on for dear life......
