    This week, Oculus purchased a company that could change the face of Virtual Reality for the company and be the most important acquisition Oculus could have made. Surreal Vision is a company that specializes in not just virtual reality, but recreates physical items for the VR landscape, a perfect match for Oculus.

    No, the best thing to happen to VR is SteamVR and OpenVR.

    Pfft. Sounds like something I came up with long ago... Almost a form of augmented reality, but with VR. You're in your world, but anything & everything can look different. Every physical item is there, but it could be something else. Your house could be a spaceship or dungeon. Outside could be castles or a weird planet... Just takes what is around you and makes it look different. So, you can feel it there, can walk around that new world, but you see something else.

    Mom, stop day dreaming. Those baseboards aren't cleaning themselves. And my Hamburger Helper™ better be ready after my raid is done.
