New Technology Will Almost Allow Us To Step Into Middle Earth Can't Post

Can't wait. Going to cost around $300!


It is been backed by all the big companies and is going to change the way we play games. I'm guessing it will work with movies too. Everyone who has had a demo are raving about it.

“The Oculus Rift changed my life. No, seriously… Virtual reality has long been the ultimate promise of technology… The Oculus Rift actually delivers on the promise, and then some. It’s really, really amazing. Truly and honestly a revelation, a trip, a rabbit hole. And I’m going in. Forever. Goodbye universe. Hello universe.”

Should be interesting to see all of the uses for this tech. [In reply to] Can't Post

John Carmack's involvement is really interesting to me... particularly with his iD tech.

I have an idea already for the use of this new VR set.


Middle Earth is New Zealand!

Never mind the glasses [In reply to] Can't Post

Then you need a game to support such technology and dual GTX 690's to produce realistic enough image. Sly

Pessimists have no disappointments.
