Will the Oculus Rift render watching films on TV a thing of the past?
What's the point in having a massive TV when you can watch on a virtual reality cinema screen?
because movie theatres show you 2-4K dots of detail while VR headsets will have 1080p-1440p dots to each eye, only a fraction of which renders the virtual screen you're watching.
Screen door effect will also be a problem until VR adopts 4K. And the processing/gpu power for that won't be reachable for average consumers for years.
tl;dr - VR just isn't there yet.
you cant watch a movie on Oculus Rift for longer than 15 minutes without getting a headache.
people dont even like wearing 3D glasses so Oculus Rift hasnt got a chance out there in normieland.
it's just a question of time though. In a decade it is possible that there will be e.g. 8k VR and better technical solutions. I am optimistic. They achieved a lot already in rather short time.
movies dont offer a full 360 view so watching them on this is fucking pointless, its not like you can look behind yourself. these things are for gaymers.
OP take a fucking autism pill and rethink your life.
3DTV failed ... nobody likes wearing glasses.
Blu-Ray failed .... DVD is still the dominant physical format as the average Joe cant see the difference or doesnt even care.
4k TV = Failed ... too expensive, no actual 4k content. 8k is already here.
but yeah, these dumb Oculus headsets are gonna be in every home in 2016!
you do realize that wearing an OR while watching a movie doesnt put you inside the scene, its exactly like watching a 3D blu-ray right?
so there is no revolution. and until they can make movies where you are in control of the camera then its just pointless.
