Cheaper than Oculus.

This is actually one of the few VR headsets that might actually work.

It's cheap, it's easy to use, and it gets into the hands of regular people.

    This took 30 years of development, so you know it's good.

    while in essence just a cardboard the brand recognition and well.. "install base" will be a good introduction for people when it comes to VR. 

    Tawess gaming

    Tawess soapbox

    This have been a good conversation

    no of course not.

    who in their right mind would think this is supposed to be the same thing as an Oculus.

    Its a very light basic demo of VR to get people interested. how can people actually not see this.

    Its is what cardboard was about. Cardboard was not a joke, it was 1. to get many people to try it and 2. demonstrate that its not longer rocket science.

    I'm sure it is, but not really. People are selling hats that you can put your phone in to make it "VR". When all you need is a roll of duct tape or a happy meal box.

    its not a joke.

    its to get more people to actually try VR instead of talking about it like they have a clue.
    Its not to be as good as Oculus it is to be basically 'a clue' as to what it VR is.

    its also to show you that the technology that runs VR is NOT the friggin headset itself, its the phone technology

    Hmm I really don't even begin to understand what you are even talking about at all. Your response have no meaning being that I replied to something out of fun and you come with this crap about someone being dumb or something. Not getting enough lately or did you just wake up on the wrong side of the bed today?
    The problem with playing the cynical card is that you may just be overly sneeringly fool.

    Does someone have an agenda here or did I miss something? Are we still having a laugh at happygoggles or did we move onto debating VR technology?

    The numbers on my U/N means more than just that, I was born that year. I was laughing at the happygoggles and didn't have anything to do with a debate on the tech. Sort of brought back memories when I saw the video.

    people actually think VR is static images on a viewmaster.

    Swear to god I met a person yesterday who thought exactly that. No friggin clue at all whatsoever, which is why these cardboard devices need to be out there

    I know, it wasn't directed at you, I understood your context even found it amusing. The response though.. makes me wonder if I had the wrong understanding of the true purpose of this topic.

    I think its safe for me to go with 'VR critics literally think VR is like a viewmaster' 

    no friggin clue what they are talking about, they actually think its static images

    Really now? Hmm let me see if you check the wiki on the view finder you would have known that it is exactly a 3D image. And I quote:View-Master is the trademark name of a line of special-format stereoscopes and corresponding View-Master "reels", which are thin cardboard disks containing seven stereoscopic 3-D pairs of small color photographs on film.

    By your logic the car made in 1672 in China isn't a car because it's not made in 2016.

    Missing out? Hmm I went to school not only for Computer graphics but I build my own pcs. I can build from base to OP system. Do you really think that people who are having a joke on something are missing out on anything?

    yeah missing out

    I have tried both a viewmaster and a Oculus VR headset and I can tell you that they aint the same but if you think they are I think its not possible to convince you otherwise without strapping you to a chair and putting both on your face (not at the same time of course)

    talking about VR with someone who thinks its like a 1980 viewmaster is a waste of time.
