Any of you been following the development of the Oculus Rift?
It looks like we may finally have the opportunity to experience a true, binocular vision, motion sensing, virtual reality headset sometime soon. Over the years there have been some attempts to create devices like these, but the only ones I've ever seen make it to the consumer marker were weak attempts to simulate sitting in front of a 100" TV at best.
This looks like the engineers are nearing their design goals and will be able to give is a reasonably affordable unit that delivers on the promise of virtual reality, at least within the context of visual information.
But getting the technology to market at an affordable price is only half the battle. The support of the software industry will determine the fate of this product I think.
