Interesting. Shouldn't be too long before it will be a common thing. I would think it will be more of a challenge for programming a good environment for this.

This is an inevitable next step. It will be huge. It will be awesome. Whoever gets it right will be a very, very rich individual.

And I, for one, can't wait. I've been waiting for this tech to be perfected for a very long time.

I think flexible OLEDs offer some really exciting possibilities for this kind of tech in the future.

Man, I hope I am alive if/when this goes mainstream.

That's a slated upgrade available around 2025.

The estimated time to release the product to developers is April 2013 so I figured it was about time to start talking about it again.

do you really think they'll have games ready to handle this kind of interface at the "release"?

Of course they will when the time comes but this "release" is for the DEVELOPERS. After that we'll start heard about all the games in the works for the CONSUMER "release".

While its cool I don't want to have to wear something on my face just so I can game.

I dunno about these sort of devices... Seems a bit too much for me. With that said I have never used one... so we'll see.

If you've followed this product at all, you'll know that they are trying to avoid the pitfalls of the Nintendo VR and other VR-type gimicky devices. This is supposed to be revolutionary, and many AAA developers have signed on to it.

I'm not saying you should buy into the hypetrain, but at least look forward to a potentially evolutionary step in gaming.

I think Kris is right. Monitors (more than likely) will be obsolete in the future. you will be the input device much like the motion controlled games on xbox/ps3/wii.

Maybe for gaming, and as much as I'll be the first to buy an Oculus Rift, it's too immersive for day to day computer use

This will be a definite hit with gaming/porn/movies but when you're just sitting around it's too much.
