Where the fuck is the goddamn Occulus Rift thread?
« on: March 05, 2014, 09:15:45 pm »
Okay, so I've been kinda "yadda yadda...VR... meh" about this whole thing. More exited about shit like augmented reality glasses so I've missed out on a lot of the story so far but he murmuring in games related channels is getting hard to ignore. What I didn't realise was that Carmack is involved and, what's more, Carmack is excited about it. History has proven, several times over, that if Carmack is excited about something, more often than not, it turns out to be pretty rad. Here's an interview from october last year.

I'm suddenly getting a warm feeling in the sub-cockle region about VR that I haven't since I started imagining it back in the 80's  :eek: :fap:

Carmack recently quite id Software to do his own thing. Occulus Rift is definitely part of that.

Who am I?
I am a nobody,
and the odds are
 that you are too.

If you say its a bad idea
 to listen to a nobody;
you likely are also saying nobody,
should listen to you.

Do not trust the authorities on a subject;
simply because they are the authority.

Listen to them only if what they say is truth.

I'm just waiting for my moddable AR glasses so I can see the world as William Gibson intended: In neon magenta wire frame.
My shit list: Stephen Harper, anarchists that complain about taxes instead of institutionalized torture, those people walking, anyone who lets a single aspect of themselves define their entire personality, salesmen that don't smoke pipes, Fredericton New Brunswick, bigots, philosophy majors, my nemesis, pirates that don't do anything, criminals without class, sociopaths, narcissists, furries, juggalos, foes.

There's probably a google glass app for that in the works.

Google glass isn't even doing AR going by the screen/view coverage. It's a crappy little window in the corner of your view. Meta looks much better but they're only slightly more portable than Oculus, given that they're thethered to wifi and short on battery life. There's still a ways to go...

Heard a report on it from SxSW today. The HBO experience. Reporter was demoing it going up the basket lift from Game of Thrones. The astonished ball-tripping sounded pretty legit.

Saw some reports of that as well (they used tricks like compressed air blasts when you "exited" the elevator on the top of the wall to sell the experience. Neat stuff. I wonder if a video of the render they used will surface.

How wonderful. Now, we realize we should have been paying more attention to those who had been deemed mentally incapacitated because of their neurological instabilities. ((only half sarcastic))
