    No.


    Though I'd be happy with 2x4K 2nd gen VR headsets. The biggest drawback I found on 1st gen was the paltry resolution.

    Disappointing, I was expecting two people pulling as hard as they could to make it bigger.

    I wonder how long it'll be before they find a way to make it wearable.

    Then head to eBay and buy a Crossover. I just bought a 32" 4k Freesync monitor for under £400. It's lovely.

    I can see it being useful for mobile displays. No more shattered screens after dropping phones.

    Re: Samsung showcasing stretchable OLED display this week

    The 1.96-inch 4k panel display would also be very interesting to high-end camera manufacturers for use in viewfinders, which up to now have 4K recording but monitoring is usually way less than 4k (1080p if you're lucky) which makes focusing more difficult.

    Done right, this sort of stuff could definitely replace projectors. Hang it from a hook when using it, roll it up and put it in the corner when not in use.

    TBH a 2" to 5" screen is more likely to be *in* a projector than replacing it anytime soon.

    So many times we've seen demonstrations of transparent/flexible/stretchable/whatever-able OLED displays that have never brought to market, probably because they couldn't scale it up from the 2"-5" demo versions to something practically sized.

    VR headsets are a lifesaver for these technologies because not being able to scale beyond 5" is actually an advantage.
