IT CAUSES FUCKING EYE CANCER

It's like holding small rocks of uranium in front of you
What do you think about this game? It looks cool and anything Lovecraft related is instantly my cup of tea.
Thinking of getting it but wanted to know if it's too "early access" to get yet?
But you don't own one. How would you know? Surely if the DEV KIT caused eye cancer you would have reported it way back when those were available. No new model has reached consumers yet so nothing has changed from the days of the safe dev kit.
So? Sunlight is far stronger and has much more dangerous radiation but normies that live outside are still alive and kicking.
This "computer screens release dangerous radiation" meme needs to die, it was only a real thing in super old CRT monitors that had a bit too much x-ray radiation.
White light is absolutely fine because it is composed of all other colours on the spectrum which have different wavelengths, meaning they all cancel out (which is why it's white) this on the other hand is emitting pixels of different colours which is shining a ton of energy that's adding onto one another straight onto your eyes
>White light is absolutely fine because it is composed of all other colours on the spectrum which have different wavelengths, meaning they all cancel out
It's not much different than staring at a computer screen in a dark room. This actually is bad for your eyes, but it won't cause cancer. If you were genuinely concerned about this, eye wear which filters out a portion of the light and protects your eyes is available. Saying that it will cause cancer is a baseless exaggeration.
I tried a very early version like 5 months ago and it was basically unplayable - crashing constantly, couldn't save the game, 5+ minute loading times. But the game itself was pretty cool.
Electromagnetic waves are a form of radiation, regardless of their wavelength. That's why it's called electromagnetic radiation. Radio waves are a form of radiation just as gamma waves are.
The OP is completely wrong, because visible light will not penetrate deeply into your body. Although, he's not completely wrong, because these screens can cause eye damage. Even radio waves can be harmful if they have enough energy.
Isnt it well known that if you take two sinusoidal waves that have a half period difference and put them together you end up with nothing?
White light is the same except you have an infinite amount of periods and frequencies which all collate to cancel each other out.

Your a bigger idiot than I thought anon.
Of course it does. So do cellphones and smoking.
Meanwhile, everyone old enough to remember playing one of these is laughing hysterically.
Sorry I must not have explained it properly. The colour and the 'force' is cancelling itself out, not the light. In the same way you can pour two buckets of differently coloured water out in different intervals, the colours cancel out as do the waves but you still end up with more water, which is also why white light is generally brighter, because it literally contains more light.
Waves move up and down as well as along, they can cancel each other out horizontally (which is what I'm talking about) as well as vertically.
Of course if you got two beams of tge same light and shone them at each other you'd end up with no, or more specifically stationary light because they'd cancel each other out vertically but I'm not on about that here. If you got two opposite periods of light they would cancel out into a straight beam
If you face them at the sun they do.
That won't work because the lenses concentrate the light no matter what, and the photons are too close to release their radiation (the radiation half-life of a photon is 0.0001 seconds, this is about 2 feet at light speed).
No matter how dark the screen is you will still be hit by the radioactive photons.
>...the colours cancel out as do the waves but you still end up with more water
Light at different wavelengths do not interfere with each other. That's why they can be separated through dispersion or refraction (like with a prism). They occupy different values on the frequency spectrum.
>...white light is generally brighter, because it literally contains more light.
This is actually true. A signal with higher bandwidth, as with light across the entire EM spectrum, will have more energy.
The accompanying radiation that is created when a photon is born does have mass, but the VR screen is too close so it doesn't have enough time to die off before hitting your eyes.
If photons don't decay then how come my room is instantly dark when I turn the light off?
Also how come no one destroyed the universe by making a cube with one-way mirrors that trap photons inside it until it explodes?
the lenses focus the light onto your retinas and slowly damage them. it's the same as how wearing glasses makes your eyesight worse. it should be fine if you only use it occasionally though.
>tvs and computer screens have been around for DECADES now
>the biggest complaint is that you blink less, which can lead to dry eyes and irritation
>0 ( zero ) verifiable cases of anything ever
yeahhhhh im gonna need some evidence or citations on this. its like that denuvo kills harddrives bullshit. 2 years, 10 games, literally hundreds of thousands of hours played
not a single, fried ssd.
Actually the bigger problem is that you focus for too long at a fairly close point, that's why the recommendation is to focus on something far away for a few minutes to avoid fatigue.
VR lenses set the focus to infinity so it should be interesting to see if the same problem happens.
>Also why couldn't you build several one-way mirror cubes to capture light/heat from the sun? It's literally free unlimited power.
What are solar panels.
>Then why do refrigerators have lights?
So you can see when its dark.
I NEED SAUCE
NOT SOME BULLSHIT KOTAKU POST BUT A MOTHERFUCKING SCIENTIFIC STUDY AND CONCLUSIVE REPORTS OR YOU'RE FULL OF SHIT YOU TURBONIGGER
theres like a million fucking jobs where you have to stare at a bright light closely, non-stop for hours a day, and i havent heard of any of those people having issues. shit, half my cousins are bead makers and glass blowers.
I'm not talking about light you retard.
Focusing requires muscle power, "infinity" is when your eye muscles are the most relaxed.
The problems you get with monitors you can get with books too for example.
falling over, hitting their head and drowning in their own vomit, and then the police finding them a week later with their pants around their ankles and the chinese cartoon sex simulator they were playing still running.
abestos and lead isnt even that bad for you. in the first case, its the DUST thats bad, abestos is still used in a shitload of things but with appropriate protection and covering. hell, the uncovered shit 50 years ago was perfectly safe, its the fact that its had 50 years EXPOSURE that makes it dangerous. lead? same shit. i can think of atleast one kitchen appliance that directly contains shit designed to go into food, without any protective covering.
shits fine if you dont be a dumb ass and like, EAT lead paint chips or something retarded
Did you know that lead being commonplace caused a big crime wave in the US? When people found out lead was toxic and phased it out the crime lowered.
I'm not even kidding, I'm on my phone right now so I can't get source but you should be able to find it if you Google a bit.
>stare at a bright light closely, non-stop for hours a day
>closely, non-stop for hours a day
and they havent had problems. they stare at something just a few inches away from their face, multiple hours a day, non-stop...and...
not to mention assembly line workers around the world who stare into a magnifying glass at an object just an inch a way 6-9 hours a day.
they are fine. the entire family history tree is fine. the only one with eye problems got it from buckshot applied to the upper roof of the mouth.
>The problems you get with monitors you can get with books too for example
didnt even GET to this part.
because lead is soft and malleable, removable with just your hands and therefor, EASY TO STEAL. less shit to steal, means less things actually possible to STEAL. correlation is not cause, nigga.
you dont get mild fatigue from reading books or staring at monitors for long periods of time. you get that from lowered blinking rates, which applies to anything of any interest, that you focus on.
You are fucking stupid if you think that eye fatigue is not a real thing, it's widely documented.
It's a combination of factors which include lowered blink rate, continuous close focus and even muscle fatigue caused by the constant stuttery movement you do when reading words.
Again, it's a widely documented thing.
absolutely. how is this going to be any more extreme because of oc rift. something that people do on a daily basis and deal with, are going to get worse because...they are doing the same thing.
Which is exactly why you're very likely to have contracted it at some point. If there's no visual indication of an STD someone isn't going to get screened for it.
And no one advocates for HPV vaccinations anymore.
I'm so mad that this post has replies.
I'm so mad that I'm replying to it anyway.
I had no idea that this had happened.
Why are people here still talking about Oculus at all if this happened?
Yes and no.
It works on the same basic principle as 3D glasses or the Nintendo 3DS: Separate images beamed into each eye to give the illusion of depth.
Your eyes can tell the difference between something that looks like it's far away, and something that *is* far away, and when something looks like it's far away but isn't, that causes eye strain.
The Rift is no different in that regard than any other currently existing method of 3D
Oh my fucking god the shit you people come up with never gets old.
