Recommended Posts

As someone who lived through the 1990s and seen all the gimmicks of virtual reality not pan out it is no surprise to see how the cover of Time Magazine has presented the current state of the technology's progress.

I'm going to be a bit of a devils advocate here and say that your 90s experience with "VR" is nontransferable to the experience now. VRs biggest stumbling block is that the technology for real VR is still quite away, like 4-5 years away considering estimates on what's required to fool a human brain; turns out the brain is already running a VR simulation and doesn't take kindly to your bullshit.

It looks like Microsoft is bound and determined to get into the VR scheme.

 

Microsoft wins patent on HaloLens design.

 

The devices, along with the bulk of their technical specifications, have been kept under wraps, with scripted demonstrations for analysts, journalists and developers held in rooms watched by private security guards.

 

The San Jose Mercury news has a better article here.
