    Maybe it's like saying HD-DVD will fail because BetaMax didn't work out.

    Omnimax Dome Theaters are conceptually more of a step towards better immersion than those silly headsets. That projection system MIT was working on that extends visuals to the viewers peripheral vision is more of a step towards better immersion. Surround sound = Immersion.

    Consumer "VR" Headsets are novelties trying to do something they CAN'T do and "less people vomit" isn't a good enough reason to necro the concept and put it to market now.
    I get a kick out of this.

    many VR critics have been saying VR technology is to expensive (at $450 I know I know)

    and then I read this...
    Meaning what? If it's $150 or $600 as it stands it's novelty tech that will quickly collect dust.
    no..
    that
    $350 is too much
    but
    $3,000 is not
    What does that have to do with I originally said? I didn't mention price points, you did.

    You could also say VHS won over betamax because the porn industry chose vhs.....seriously you guys are getting far out there to prove your right and the other guy is wrong....

    just to be clear the point being made is that all the technology that makes todays VR possible didnt exist in 1993

    @Adjuvant1 you may as well have titled this thread '1950s called and wants its VR back':

    Either way, it's trolling
