    Sure you can simulate that you're picking up a cup....  if you're holding the controller in your hand and directing your "on screen" self as picking it up.

    You can't, however.. pick up an actual cup in VR.. or pick up any general items placed before you in a physical world.. such as... multiple controls,  or a ball that feels like a ball,  or actually unsheathing a sword at your side like you could with say.... Hololens.  

    Cost of using a cell phone you already own as a screen in a piece of "free" cardboard seems VR enough for those that want to stick a TV to their head.  There's nothing wrong with that, but there's a big difference between something like an actual experience - virtually simulating flying a plane - being able to toggle buttons and use a real flightstick or steering wheel -- and just watching it play on a movable screen with gyroscopes. 
    I am not following you let me break it down to its elements.

    1. VR solution that uses screens on walls = cant pick up anything virtually 1' away from you
    2. VR solution that uses a headset = can pick up anything virtually represented 1' away from you

    1. VR soultion that uses screens in which you can not pick up virtual items 1' from your face costs a billion billion dollars
    2. VR solution that you CAN pick up virtual items one foot from your face costs $1500?

    Its a good move. You enjoy your VR while still smelling burgers and fries from the box. It makes you hungry and you come back for more.

    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.
    To be fair

    An Oculus is pretty much a View Master with head tracking and moving imagery.

    Take the Head Tracking away and you've got shit.
    see!

    I knew it!

    so yeah saying 'missing out' isnt exactly a stretch even for computer boy
    The Oculus and similar products can be kind of cool with certain applications.

    But things like this


     

    will be more "Virtual Reality" than an Oculus ever will be.
    and people complain about the cost of VR headsets.

    so you are saying that VR will fail because we can all go out and buy one of these to put in our spare bedroom? not sure what you are trying to say here
    I'm not even knocking things like the Oculus, I've experienced it and with certain applications it's very cool. But let's get real here, it's a monitor with head tracking, it covers visuals only.

    Here is one of my customer's products: https://vs3.irisdynamics.com/

    I manufacture some of the metal parts for the unit. Interestingly this product was also started with a Kickstarter. It's just as much "Virtual Reality" as an Oculus. It just deals with the feel, not with the sight and is more specialized but is just as much of a "Virtual Reality Device"

    Great, some f**king idiot is going to pick those up at the drive through then try to figure out how they work while driving down the highway. 
    if you think about that for a second, it would be pretty much impossible to sell any product that could avoid idoicy like that and concerns like that is why everything has 15 pages of warning labels of friggin everything we buy
    true but the real problem is that we let people that stupid actually get behind the wheel in the first place. Because of that fact, we now have to carefully scrutinize every little thing because these idiots can now kill others as well as themselves.

    All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

    I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.

    I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

    I don't hate much, but I hate Apple© with a passion. If Steve Jobs was alive, I would punch him in the face.

    ok I am going to be more clear and explict.

    There is FAR more a player can do in a virtual environment using a VR headset than the picture in that image.

    That's amazing, but unhealthy. I'd prefer a box of strawberries that turns into a VR set once you've eaten all the strawberries.

    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.



    That my friend had me laughing so hard. It reminded me of something I had as kid without the phone no doubt




    Eh today they look alot different dude. :pleased:

    "VR headset" is marketing period. It's not "Virtual Reality" 

    Closing your eyes while picturing your favorite fantasy and stroking it is more "VR" and you won't even need the damn headset.

    Just wanted to point out there's a bit of sarcasm in the title of this thread; it's a subtle dig at the price of other, "actual" VR rigs.  I don't think any reasonable person would expect these to measure up to Rift or Vive any more than Cardboard, including parents that take their kids through the drive-through.

    That said, it's interesting to see the market adapting to the 2016 VR wave.  Kind of a VR "sample" kit.

    if that is the case they likely should not have created the thread for risk of someone thinking they actually do think this and actually are not that bright or use it as an opportunity to attack.

    just something to think about

    the point of sarcasm is to express truth in a lie.

    this is doing neither

    Anyway.... For the people curious about how a more holo-deck like VR experince would work.

    Swing by the old youtubes have a look at the people trying out Vive units. 

    Both barnacules nerdgasm and Jacksepticeye have videos i have stumbled across showing both in-headset and room view. It is actually pretty impressive.

    Now look at those and then imagine wearing a par of haptic gloves... Then you will actually be able to pick stuff up... with your hands... Sure you will not feel the item in the traditional way but pick it up you will none the less.

    and I would like to point out that a holodeck system like that is more limiting in what it can do then a VR headset because of what I might call the 2 foot problem

    Sean... the Vive.... is a headset.... It just add two IR cameras and let you map your actual room so you can move around in the VR space without dying from smashing in to a wall. =) 

    any way.. for the lazy

    No joke at all here. Google did this a while back as well, either purchased or the cut-out prints for making your own: https://www.google.com/get/cardboard/

    Real gig. Nice post.

    so people really do think that the VR of an Oculus headset is the same as a McDonalds headset?

    I am confused now

    Certainly not the same. Though I see no reason why some kind of compatibility couldn't be implemented. Considering such, there would be a pretty bad delay transmitting video over a bluetooth or wifi signal to accomplish it. Similar to that of the chromecast (A device for streaming video to a television via wifi network from a smartphone, tablet, or PC.)

    I read a few posts stating "is this a joke." I more or less was trying to point out that my post with information about smartphone VR was not a joke. Perhaps I should have read more of the later posts in the forum to keep it relevant to the current conversation.
