I already decided to buy it weeks ago that is the future of games not only games movies as well. The potential is there. I always wished for something like this in the 90s but obviously the tech wasnt there yet. This is the first step into a new future. Also the Price while high for some is justified. Compare that to a 3D TV.

Also the technology behind it is bleeding edge. If Sony would make a 56 inch TV with the same Specs. It would be a TV with a Resolution of 99200x57600 or 57600p . All this as OLED (superior to Plasma/LCD). A TV like that would cost a Million or more. Through the seperation of eyes on two Displays you will get the best possible 3D experience. Also this is just the beginning the potential for this technology is limitless. In 10 years we will have this with seemless perfect 360 degree vision head and eye tracking and the highest possible resolution the human eye can peeceive. In 50 years all this technology will be integrated in contact lenses. If you decide at night you would like to walk in sunlight you will be able to do that. Its for sure the next big thing, a virtual layer above reality. This visor is the first acceptable step into VR.


Just to clarify a "Contact Lens" like you describe, just isn't going to happen. If anything, an eye replacement/direct modification ala Deus Ex: Human Revolution is far more likely, and will happen if allowed.

Also, 1080p is just about the highest resolution the average Human eye can percieve at the moment as well.

Edit: Also, to clarify, discussion resolution in terms of the human eye is quite pointless. As resolution is all respective to the size of the screen your viewing. EX: A 720p 0.7 inch screen is obviously far different then a 720p 70 inch screen.

I chose the contact lense because I made a Thread about it a year ago (?) where they already had a working contact lense that can project pictures in your eye. Ofcourse very limited and on the very early stages.



Im very dissapointed they didnt built a software that convert 2D signal to 3D. There so little 3D contents right now.



Yup here the articles I read: http://www.livescience.com/2240-contact-lenses-bionic.html
http://www.belfasttelegraph.co.uk/lifestyle/technology-gadgets/contact-lens-tv-on-sale-within-a-decade-14183131.html

Those implants you talk of will happen but they are magnitudes more complex and there are huge practical problems. Our technology just isnt there yet on every level.
Whereas the contact lenses are technologically easier and I am sure we will witness them (in an acceptable quality) in our lifetime. At the beginning they will be as useless a VR in the 80s/90s.

You forgot aout distance. As a long time HMD owner, I can tell you it doesnt look as good as a TV with similar specs. The eyes are easily able to notice a difference between 720P and 1080P + at 6 feets away of 150 inches. Anyway, the point of those is 3D. By far the best 3D you will ever get, its flawless, just like how you perceive depth in real life.

If you are refering to : " In 10 years we will have this with seemless perfect 360 degree vision head and eye tracking and the highest possible resolution the human eye can peeceive." with your edit.

I mean ofcourse the highest possible resolution you cant differenciate from higher resolutions on the implemented screens.

Also there is a physical limit of resolution the eye can percieve meaning if the pixel density is higher then the density of rods and cones in your eye. But I didnt refer to that.



Um I actually used these and I'll say, while cool, it's not too impressive. That "150 inch" at 6 feet away is lies really. It was cool that things were in 3D, but everything was soo tiny.  Like I was using those things that had a feed from Killzone 3 and I could barely make out what was going on.

Maybe 150 inches is exagerate, but it shouldnt be tiny either. Are you sure you adjusted it correctly?



this will fry your eyes off



Couple of downsides I can see are for people who need bifocals and people who get motion sickness. Otherwise this looks great!
