When I first read about this I assumed it was a misquote from an Engadget interview with Carmack but it would appear not.I wonder what concessions they will make on the Headset and what the price difference will be between it and the "real" version.

Not that I really care, I'm just counting down the seconds until the higher res version comes out with fuller motion tracking. I don't care if its Dev kit 2.0 I will buy it in a heartbeat as the original rift blew my mind when I used it.

HURRY UP!!

I'd be interested to see how this is going to work in practice - I'm not sure that I see the point of OR on smartphones, to be honest, nor do I see how it's going to work with touchscreen devices. I'd imagine that you'll need some sort of controller as I just can't see how it'd work otherwise.

Ah, so there'll just be the one headset which will work on either PCs or smartphones. Makes sense - I've updated the article with that link. Cheers!

Having actually used the newer HD headets (EVE Valkyrie @ EveVegas) a couple of weeks ago, all I can do is cheer. More platforms = more fun (in theory).

I tried the very first VR headsets, back in 1996. They were essentially helmets that clamped over your head. The 3D graphics were simple and blocky, but there we went, stepping through the looking glass into a new universe where there was no there. Good times.... good times.

They seriously called it vrAse? And their t shirt is of a fist? And one of the supporting people has Gas in their name. What were they thinking.
