Este es definitivamente el futuro del entretenimiento digital interactivo. Espero con ansias el dispositivo en una versión más ligera y juegos que utilicen al máximo sus prestaciones. De echo hay un par de proyectos que estoy elaborando que podrían aprovechar muy bien esta tecnología. Mis felicitaciones y éxitos al equipo de Oculus, se nota que trabajaron muchísimo en este dispositivo :D

As a budding game designer, I hope that I can one day create a VR MMORPG (very much like Sword Art Online) someday hahaha.
... that is if my music career path doesn't work out

Cool.... I'm waiting for this technology for years now. Definitely yes. :D

This might be a milestone in gaming... didnt thought something like this would come so early xD

Yes, because it went so well 20 years ago. Oh wait, no it didn't. What happened to news being new?

Also...what song is that playing in the background? Seems like I'm the only one in the whole freakin forum that actually liked it

These look incredible, I've only dreamed of this technology being perfected since the current products that do this such as the Vuzix, though they have the right premise, are still not polished enough.

I already have some money saved up for my OR. Its about time gaming took a new direction, it is getting stale with all the casualisation,  franchise milking and copycat development going on. If games are developed specifically for this type of peripheral then imagine all the new ideas it could bring.

I expect augmented  reality ( projections in your living room ) to be the new thing for next gen consoles, specifically the nextbox and VR being the next real step in changing the way we play video games. However this all depends on weather or not the OR is affordable. If the price is too high it will only ever be for a niche audience, just another attempt that will fade away in time. If the price is right then more people can buy one, which will make the OR popular enough to be taken seriously by (even more) developers.

Wow the crowd in gamespot is so damn ignorant, if youre worried about resolution read up on how human vision works and how they take advantage of that. Oh and NOTHING like this has been done so far, which is surprising considering how cheap the required technology has gotten and how open the human-machine interface market is

Even if all the big problems  of the past get solved, there's still one huge problem I see that nobody seems to bring up - how are you supposed to AIM in a first person game?  If the typical mouselook axis is simply switched to the headset, you would have to aim by turning your head.  Which sounds incredibly, horribly no-fun and counter-intuitive.  Will there be separate aiming and "looking" axes?


Looks fun for driving games, though.

I'm still saving up for a PC so I can get the Oculus Rift when it hits for retail. Here's my 3 dream games that I wish would utilize the Rift #1) MINECRAFT #2) SLENDER & #3) LEFT4DEAD

The whole concept just sounds kind of something you would see in the 90s.   Even the music sounds like something from the 90s (at least in the end). I wonder if they chose the music to fit the era.  

I'm not against the concept but we went through so many failures since then that I think we're all very skeptical   But surely eventually something must come out.

Can it properly track eye movement?  Or do I have to move my entire head every time I want to look at something else?

I find it stupid everyone is judging a product that isn't even finished yet....

I'm sure it's pretty cool, but personally I've always kind of avoided the concept of VR.  I don't want to completely shut out the real world when I play a video game.

The Graphics should be Retina Display. And also pls include google nose, the new awesome new super technology.

You all disgust me....all you are interested in is fucking HD graphics....PEOPLE IT'S A FUCKIN PROTOTYPE! oh course it's got shitty graphics now...EVERYTHING STARTS OUT LIKE SHIT....for God sake give them a chance before you start bitching that the graphics are too "blockey". If you think you can do better then try doing something the same, but with HD graphics ;)
And i'm pretty sure you'll all get it when the final product comes out.

@Ian Sell It's not that it didn't go well 20 years ago.  HMD's have been in use for decades in the professional sectors including medical, military and space.  The difference is the display tech is now inexpensive and very high resolution as well as being brighter and clearer.  It's the perfect time for low-cost consumer HD VR.

@pelvist Palmer is aware of the importance of making HMD VR affordable and so the consumer version is expected to be a similar price to the dev kit.

@louie_cloud I saw someone wearing glasses with the dev version, and im 99.9% sure that the dev version and the consumer version would come with adjustable focus for people with different eye sight.

@louie_cloud *hint* they have built in lenses in there to make it work*/hint*

@monkeypants You would just aim the same way you normally would. Doesn't matter where you are looking the aiming reticule would move with you and you would aim with the mouse, controller, whatever inside that viewing space.

@likuidd Considering all the possitive feedback it has gotten from testers and extremely well known developers (Gabe Newell and John Carmack, specifically), not to mention all the live testing videos showing off the tech I think your probably the only one who is even skeptical at all. Besides, the people making it aren't a big evil corporation out to make millions by ripping people off, its some smart guys on Kickstarter trying to make games even better than they already where. I really really REALLY doubt this tech isn't going to be amazing.

@zenstrata Its not close to real life eye tracking and focusing. But if its good then that path will open up. 

 But for 2013 and a few hundred bucks (I hope less than $400.00) what do you expect. It does good for what it is.  

jeffrobin

@zenstrata You can just look at it with your eyes, you don't have to move your head unless you want to change your field of view. Just like in real life you move your head then look within your field of view with your eyes. Tracking eye movement isn't necessary.

@zenstrata  

yea I see a problem with them focusing a higher number of pixels in the center view.. there should be a high amount of pixels everywhere, because your eyes are not static. Im just glad that someone are making VR glasses with a higher field of view. Hopefully they will correct these problems in the future regarding low resolution and different resolutions in the screen:)

@godmaster89 Then why present it to the public? Do artists show off half finished paintings, genius? Do auto makers show off vehicle chassis'?

@SiDima @louie_cloud So someone who needs corrective lenses can simply take off their glasses, put the Oculus on and see perfectly? I don't think this product will work for everyone.

@vault-boy 'really, really, really doubt this tech isn't going to be amazing'. I think you're a bit optimistic and a little blind if you don't think the developers are not thinking of the possible financial payoffs.

@cuddlyfuzzle You're living proof that people say really stupid things when they don't know what they're talking about.  Palmer wants to get his HMD VR as close to perfection as possible.  He is not going down the route every other HMD maker took.  For example:  Sony TMZ is a typical HMD with a price tag way beyond most consumers.  Sony didn't get user feedback before unleashing it.  Palmer wants Oculus in the hands of every game development company and the consumer as well.  The product is already a great success because of this strategy.  SDK in the hands of the public means a massive game and app library long before the consumer version hits.

@cuddlyfuzzle don't game makers present their games in betas? aren't beta's unfinished products dimshit? Don't compare completely diferent objects......you can't compare a piece of art to a fuckin game device...where is the logic in that!?!? -.-  Now what I find stupid, Which is aparently what you didn't get, is that there were a lot of people saying that they weren't bothering to get it if it came out because it looked stupid and like shit and the graphics were crap.....

@cuddlyfuzzle  

umm. the event is called GDC.. You do know what that stands for right??

A lot of unfinished things are being shown there.

I think its a great step in VR. the problem has always been the field of view and delay in head tracking, but this product seem to take care of both of these things :)

prototypes get shown of at these kind of events all the time, why should they wait until they are ready to ship them to tell developers and consumers what they are working on?? sounds like the stupidest marketing strategy ever.. so good thing you don't have any say in these kind of decisions:)

@petez34 @vault-boy No.  You;re the blind one.  What Vault-Boy said was the company behind Oculus isn't some big evil corporation out to make millions by ripping people off.  He didn't say they were a charity organisation working for nothing to bring you free HMD tech.  

Palmer is someone who started out with a love of HMD VR tech and is determined to make it affordable and popular.  Of course he wants financial success just like the rest of the people on the planet including you and me.

@cuddlyfuzzle I didn't say that idiot....I said it was stupid them saying it was crap because the graphics were "blocky" because it's a prototype, and OFCOURSE there going to work on the graphics.

@tumle @cuddlyfuzzle ugh, I'm well aware of that however, godmaster apparently finds it stupid that people form an opinion from what they see and to me that is 'stupid'. bye
