On a ps4, so it will have shit graphics since 95 fps is required. It will have just casual garbage.

Will likely also be expensive since it uses hardware superior to that of the rift.

Time to pack it up and move back to your keyboards and monitors, boys. The "waifu age" will never come.

The technology is fine and everyone who has ever tried it (excluding the vive) have been blown away by how immersive it is.

If it does flop, it will be because palmer is selling them at a loss. Nigga didn't learn from sonys mistakes. but maybe zuckerberg will foot the bill to see it succeed.

Top lel, do you have any idea how much the first PCs cost?

I don't get why people keep calling this shit virtual reality, it's just two screens strapped to your face. Not to mention you still have to use a keyboard or controller, which completely ruins any chance of felling immersed.

the advancement in technology doesn't just equal faster shit, it amounts to new technologies and innovations.
All hardware reaches a point where it can no longer be advanced. Take a CRT monitor for example, or a flip phone. They are replaced by something completely different, but somewhat familiar. Thats how technology progress.

I'm sure we'll eventually get some sort of eye contacts that lets us browse the Internet and call others.

You've got to be seriously deluded and pessimistic if you think we've reached the end of innovation.

Of course there will be worlds with mountains of dildos, but more than likely, a company will organize and prioritize the quality world for a low price. Thats enough to make sure VR beats AR.

>>
>>25555783
IYes, but there will be people trying to capitalize on the sorting of good content. Thats is enough to boost VR because people will be willing to experience unique worlds.

AR is a problem because it relies on some pretty advance AI (for interactive avatars in your world) - AI that is too advance for indie developers. This is why AR is a poor bet for the next 20 years.

Exactly. How dumb are these people. It's obvious the technology is workable, it will just take time to get it mass production ready. Same as big screen TV, same as home pc, same as home video, all of these ideas were originally just for the super wealthy and had big drawbacks for the first few years. Eventually they were ready at a mature tech state and cheap price that made it mass market ready.

this is far from being VR, the only senses you can stimulate are sight and sound which is a far cry from real VR, it's only been in recent years that the standard of VR has been lowered to meet those of these goggles.

as for these goggles paving the way towards the technology that I want, you are sorely mistaken, the technology that is paving the way towards what I want is what is helping the disabled and being developed by the military, the same technology that gives senses back and gives feedback to people's stubs.

To me this isn't virtual reality. Reality is your experience and where as it might be grounded in a virtual environment, you are not experiencing that environment as if you were there - you're disconnected. Like looking out of a submarine window at the deep ocean world knowing you can't just go and be one of the fish.

Until they manage to make it so you can insert your consciousness into a game and have you actually fully immersed in an experience set within a virtual reality - I'm not buying.
