Anyone else looking forward to this?
Sounds like a dystopian nightmare to me.
I think the possibilities are amazing.
I'm interested in it, but I'm not convinced. In terms of pure VR capability I think the potential is incredible, however they need to come up with a solution to motion sickness if a lot of these virtual environments are going to be fully enjoyed and experienced.
I use an Oculus Rift S and have only found a couple of games that don't leave me feeling sick after 30 minutes of play, and it actively puts me off trying out more VR environments. If I know I'm going to be standing still and looking around the environment I know it'll be fine, and VR Boxing (I play Thrill of the Fight) is also fine, but anything with constant movement like Half-Life Alyx for example I can't stick for more than 30 minutes at a time, because I'll have a motion induced headache or at the very least a fuzzy head for the rest of the day.
I remember watching the Champions League final (I think it was Juventus vs Real Madrid) in VR with one of the cardboard VR boxes as BT Sport were trialling it - it was as if I was seated in the stadium, and whilst it was a little blurry it was certainly watchable. It was okay if not great, but I thought the potential for it was incredible - imagine how much money clubs could make doing stadium tours for example, or improving on the live game aspect. The legions of foreign fans would eat it up if it was a viable option. I'm surprised it hasn't been expanded upon. I guess it's much easier to peddle the bitcoin garbage and sell "fan tokens" instead.
I was thinking more of stalking fit birds tbh
