    I got Google Cardboard to try it out. It's OK, sometimes even impressive, but I think VR will forever suffer from the "too immersive and now I want to vomit" problem. TV watching and gaming are social things and VR is even worse than 3D TV with glasses.

    Also, does anyone really want to strap a Samsung smartphone an inch from their eyes? Seems less inspired since they started blowing up.

    The Microsoft holo-lens augmented reality look the most interesting. Right now they are all too expensive for me and it's only a matter of time till my kids start wanting them. Hopefully the prices come down soon for the serious versions (that they'll inevitably want),

    My phone has a crank on the side of it and making phone calls involves asking Flora the town operator to connect me to the party I'm trying to reach. Do you think I'm ready for this thing they are calling V.R.?

    Seriously though... I'm looking forward to watching videos featuring Brother Lett, in Virtual Reality....can you imagine??

    Simon, I have both a cardboard and a nicer version version of the same thing. (SxSW swag)

    I've also tried a few of the top end "True" VR headsets. These don't have the same nausea issue from motion. Only nausea from the price!

    Let's be honest, folks.

    The porn studios are gonna be the biggest investors in this kind of R&D. :smirk:

    This is the link to Reveal's Virtual Reality story.

    In my opinion, this outstanding technology sure makes the presentation of Debbie's awful story remarkable and memorable. Watchtower officials have to be concerned that the first use of VR by C.I.R. (Reveal) was to tell about JWs and how they hide child sexual abuse through their hideous "religious" policies .

    Here's where you can see Debbie's story on JWN which was taken from YouTube.

    And to think I just started rereading Tad Williams 'Otherland' series (a not so far into the future sci-fy adventure where everyone is plugged in to VR). Hmmm....I think I prefer RL (real life)

    Funnily enough, yes ... exactly. They even have the old view-master style insert which is now just a QR code you scan. It's a nice touch of nostalgia though.
