    i'll take the eye implants .. but not straping all that to my head .. if you've had a drink you'd be looking down all the time
    What does it matter now if men believe or no?
    What is to come will come. And soon you too will stand aside,
    To murmur in pity that my words were true
    (Cassandra, in Agamemnon by Aeschylus)

    I had the DK2 and the experience is amazing and I would certainly say to anyone to try it before judging it. However its come out at a far higher price than I was expecting so no I won't be investing in VR until the price drops.

    I get bad enough motion sickness from some games in normal reality, never mind virtual ones. Pass.

    Not interested in the short term but maybe later on when it actually works well instead of just kind of works. I prefer buying less broken technology and have low expectations for first generation hardware, firmware and software in general. Maybe 3rd or 4th generation will be OK.

    Re: QOTW: Are you planning on buying a virtual reality headset?

    Once the reviews are out, sure!

    I'd like to test one beforehand though... should have taken my opportunity at the i-series in 2015!

    Re: QOTW: Are you planning on buying a virtual reality headset?

    nope.... I can't really use the current designs because I wear glasses and have no intention of using contact lenses.

    Not to say I can't see a use for them because I can for my 3D work but from a personal perspective there's no point.

    It will likely have to come down more and possibly seen as a more solid product that is here to stay.

    Re: QOTW: Are you planning on buying a virtual reality headset?

    At these prices and without trying it - No.
    Like others, I would wait for the price to become more consumer friendly
    By the time I get around to it, they should have the system more mature.
