I noticed the picture from the previous post was no longer showing up so i had to fix the link. I thought i might as well make a quick post while I’m at it.
I got to spend about 15 minutes demoing an HTC Vive yesterday and came very close to buying one.
I have to wait just a couple of months before i can though, so we can pay off a bit of our Japan holiday debt and then i can pull the trigger. I’ve been given permission by the wife too, so i’ll live to post about it!
If you haven’t tried the Vive i suggest you check it out. Its so far ahead of the rest its not funny. I left the demo without a hint of motion sickness, yet my Oculus DK1 left me feeling so sick, it got to the point where i couldn’t even look at it without feeling queasy. This is why I ended up selling it.
I’ll go into more details about it another day, but one thing i will say, its made me rethink quite a lot of aspects of the project.
