In my opinion, a 2d environment should provide more relaxed depth perception experience than a full fledged 3d world. I think that anaglyph 3d could be already possible with some post effects. But for active, pasive or OR methods of viewing, as was previously stated, you'll need a 3d workspace and 2 cameras.

By the way, I'll take this opportunity to beg for a 2.5d workspace, again :roll: . Aaaaaaaaashleeeeeeeey! :shock: :oops: :lol:

I have no doubt in my mind that this will happen. I use 3 monitors at work and at home, and with an oculus rift I could have something ridiculous like 80 borderless monitors. In fact, I think the entire notion of flat desktops might end with the rift - the desktop of the future might look more like a "headsphere', and that's considering current control schemes (keyboard and mouse).

The rift will revolutionize book reading, movie watching and working.

Yeah, I can imagine it now. Everybody working in an office looking like a twat! ;) Same as 3D TVs... everyone loves to wear glasses in their own home. Google glass I hear you say? 'Asshole' replies the media.

In my opinion VR wont take off at home until you have the holodeck experience, and watches have the best chance in the wearable market at this moment in time.

@TheWyrm Have you ever tried the Oculus yourself? You can't compare it with a 3D tv or Google Glass because the VR is on a whole new level and everyone I've showed it to just loves it. Its so mindblowing when you can actually walk inside the game and you feel that you can pick up and touch everything you see.

As usual the porn industry will decide if it gets in to every home just as they did with the dvd. But it looks like they already decided to jump on the VR train according to the articles I've read.

And it can be used in so many ways. I watched the movie Gravity with my Oculus a few weeks ago and that was awesome on IMAX but holy Fu*k when I saw it in VR! I thought I was in space and it felt like you were floating around with the actors! No one will ever pay to go to the movies again when you can get 100 times the experience from your own home. With the VR you don't see any screen borders just total immersion.

I can guarantee that cinemas will be one of the first who have to change once this is commercial and every seat will have a VR device. The "regular screen" will just be used for indie movies and other small productions.

This is not my opinion its a fact ;)

Yeah, but did someone try to wear Oculus for straight 8 hours and do normal day work stuff? I think no matter how comfortable oculus is/will be, it's still like wearing a bucket on your head :D

Hehe, I'm not saying that people will wear them 24 hours a day and use them at a regular desk job. That might be in a distant future. I'm just saying that it will replace many ways of enjoying different kind of entertainment and this is in the near future for sure.

And for everyone who think this will not happen because it is bulky and big you have to understand that i will get smaller and wireless in the future. Probably more like regular glasses. It is still in early stages. And it might look big as it is right now but it doesn't feel big and heavy when you have them on. So give it some time and you'll see the VR devices will get smaller :P

I know that I sound like a total fanboy. But after seeing what you can do I really have no doubt. I use them for showcasing architecture in a 3D environment and it is groundbreaking how you can actually see if a room is big enough by walking inside it instead of looking at 3D-renders wich doesn't really show the true size of scale. But this will surely be used in the medical field and many other fields as well.

They're supposedly lighter than some models of headphones, and people wear those for long sessions. I have no trouble imagining them being used by powerusers in office jobs.

@Anonnymitet Yes, I have used it and don't get me wrong it is cool. However, my comparison of technologies is purely based on fashion. If you look like an idiot wearing something it wont take off.

I can see people going to a place and using it ala cinema or 'gunmen of the apocalypse'/'squid of despair' (Red Dwarf). However, I can't see a family of four sitting in their living room looking like the borg

***Just my opinion***
