Virtual boy wasnt real VR. <--- its Important people actuall realise this.
It was actually Steroscopic 3D (in red+blue) ment to simulate 3D effects.
its also important for people to realize that what we are getting now isnt REAL VR thats what ppl will say 50 years in the future.
Yeah, the current stuff isn't real VR either. Would be kinda cool if it was, but no strapping a tv to your head is not virtual reality no matter how many people claim it is.
Your fooling your eyes and brain's perception of where it is.
You move your head, the perceptions of the game world move accordingly.
Thats atleast "part" of the VR experiance.
Sure you dont "feel" when things poke you with a stick, ingame, you dont smell & taste food ingame.
But do you honestly want to play a game where those things happend? a cable strait into your brain? or a chip implant that fools your senses completly?
To me, fooling 1-2 of your senses (sight & ears) is enough to call it "Real" VR.
I dont need to experiance pain (feeling) or taste/smell in a game.
