pretty much your forehead will be glued to the cardboard and all the apps are shitty..

then again, TrinusVR is a nice app, you might want to try that one
>>
>>51588326
Pretty good shit. You're not getting much as it's a mobile experience and not capable of shit the oculus can do. But uh, pretty nice for laying in bed and watching YouTube videos
>>
>>51588326
Easily your $2's worth in entertainment. You didn't pay much more than $2, right?

Though my chinese phone has good gyros and decent PPI screen, YMMV on your device.

Use Kinoni to stream 3d shit from your desktop to your phone. Works pretty well for shit your phone can't handle. Obviously head tracking doesn't function since you're streaming, but it works well enough as a 3d display.
>>
It should be just good enough to make you interested in better vr options, but just awful enough to make you stop using it within a couple of days.
>>

> but just awful enough to make you stop using it within a couple of days
Whether it is "awful" pretty strongly depends on your phone.

But there's as relatively little content as on other VR platforms, so indeed it can't really last more than a few days, unless you watch / play every last damn thing extensively.

Disappointment.

I wonder if VR is really gonna take off like they said it would.
>>
I've got a g3, are these worth it on a 1440p mobile screen?
>>
>>51588561
Chicken and egg situation. Hardware = pricey + lack of content.
>>
>>51588591
I know, I bought a DK2 last year and haven't touched it for months because there's only so much time you can spend with Euro Truck Simulator 2 and the few other games supporting it.

Last year, annoucements were hinting towards Winter 2015 / Spring 2016 for the first "decent" consumer models. But it doesn't seem like we're gonna get anything for this xmas.
>>
>>51588561
Eventually, pretty sure.

As are AR glasses or lenses or computer->brain terminals and human brain emulators on computers or whatever.

It's all a matter of cost, benefit (software applications available and their licensing conditions), weight, battery life, politics, and so on though.

>>51588577
It is always worth the $2 (or $10-20 if you want a nicer plastic alternative) the third party versions from China cost. You'll should at least that much worth of entertainment and fun from trying it.
>>
I tried an Oculus headset for the first time about a week ago. My first ever VR experience.

Was pretty impressed by the responsiveness. It did give a feeling of presence.
This shit is gunna be pretty wild in another decade or so once we have lots of content and the resolution gets to the point where it just looks like real life.

Inb4 mass motion sickness recall
>>
>>51588781
Yeah, that's the biggest issue currently. While you can overcome the motion sickness quite easily with "training" (starting with short sessions, slowly increasing duration), tons of people will ignore that and then complain that the experience sucks.
>>
Well worth the price. Friends and family enjoyed the demos I gave them of VR, made them actually excited for shit like the Oculus.
>>
I heard that Google cardboard nerds a high ppi screen for a better experience as it gets blurry when the screen is magnified. How will my nexus 4 with a 720p screen fare?
>>
>>51588439
This, Trinus is neat AF but not free unfortunately
>>
>>51589567
Not as great as it could be, you can see pixels, but like less than 10 years ago everything kinda had that resolution.

You'll be okay enough.
>>
>>51589703
Ty anon. I'm just using for Chinese cartoon porn anyways so I think I'll do fine. Though I wanna get the z5 premium and do cardboard in that as it'll be a way better resolution
>>
Pixels.
>>
>>51589724
One of the only few ways in which I imagine a 800 ppi screen will be helpful, sure.

Though I think you might also want slightly better glass as you move up. The cardboard cardboards typically don't have anything too bad, but also not too great...
>>
Bumping. Did anyone get their free vr goggles in the mail that was sponsored by a porn site? According to them its still backlisted
>>

>Whether it is "awful" pretty strongly depends on your phone.

While that's true to an extent, Cardboard will always be a shitty experience without low-persistence, <20 ms latency, optimized rendering pipeline, higher FOV, better weight and weight distribution, asynchronous time-warp, and maybe some other things, including positional tracking if we're not only comparing it to Gear VR. But even then, the best mobile VR headset, the Gear VR, can be a pretty bad VR experience. Even the Vive/Rift/PSVR can be bad. But they're the best we have, and FAR better than Cardboard.
