  • Weird as in it's probably another distraction to keep us preoccupied from what's really important? Or weird that no other major corporation thought it was a good idea to invent VR and it took a third party developer to independently create it?

  • people have been creating VR for decades man, this is just the one that got the right combination of technological advances (smallness and lightness) combined with hype (kickstarter) and publicity (internet sharing) , plus people now have computers that can run the games in high enough rez to seem real

  • i agree its weird though, just because of how immersive it is, its going to make addiction so much worse. there's a novel "ready player one" , and in it, everyone lives in mobile homes or shacks, like favela style, and only find enjoyment and interaction within VR. if your life sucks, its even more tempting to be in it all the time . just wait for MMOs and social games

    RE: cunty

    Remember what our favorite comedians said about rape jokes, and #RAPECULTURE...

    "you should be allowed, you HAVE to be allowed, you ARE allowed to joke about aaaaaaaannnnnnnyyyyyyttttthhhhiiinng you want."


    I think it's bullshit, but this is the ideology of the times, the #ZEITGEIST, if you will, if we allow it to be set by the lowest common denominator. People telling jokes to other people with impaired judgement.

    Basically, fuck everybody. Nothing is sacred. Nothing is discouraged. It doesn't matter what you say, or what message you are sending, nobody should ever be held accountable for anything they say, no matter how it affects anyone else in society, fuck everybody, look out for yourself, that's all that matters.

  • I think you all would enjoy SondSelf:
    SoundSelf is a sensual exploration game about the intrinsic pleasure of playing instead of the rewards of winning. You use your voice to explore a hypnotic world of sounds and visuals that feel like they are emerging directly from your body. Each tone will navigate you through strobing tunnels-of-light, impossible shapes, and into a meditative trance.

    It's not really a game but more of a trip lead by chanting.

  • There's no way im playing Amnesia or Silent Hill with this. It will be so scary id probably die.
  • There will be interesting applications with this device for exposure therapy. Afraid of flying? Snakes? Crowds? Sit back and relax in the comfort of your own living room or your therapists' office, strap this bad boy on and live your fear without actually living it. PTSD, anxiety, etc.

    I can also imagine some guantanamo inmates getting a taste of the darker side. You know, like a torture device, a virtual brazen bull of sorts, 'cept instead of you body being boiled it's your mind.

    Athletes strap this on in preparation of deeper level motor imagery (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motor_imagery) - or would it perhaps mitigate some effects and not be "deeper level" at all? Something to research. "I know kung fu" indeed.

    Anyone see the movie Strange Days?
