From someone that has been very distant in the past in any situation...

And all i did was recommend that they give Virtual Reality a try...

Sittin at the bar with a friend... totally random, the bartender who was clearly having a good night... walks up to me and hugs me!

Hes like.." thank you for telling me about that virtual reality stuff"... I say, "what did you actually try it"?

Guy says... Its so awesome...

Shook me up a bit... but this is the effect it can have on people.

He ran out the door but I can't wait to find out what he played!

Yeah.... We're really at that point with tech visuals

Believe it!

Tell me if I got this right, you are in a bar, recommend someone try VR, they do and they are so happy with their VR experience they gave you a hug some time latter

They are so happy they show human emotion and gratitude that people can’t show VR? And your happy because you got a real hug from a real person in a real place for recommending they try an unreal experience and feel happy you can be part of their experience

If this says anything to me then we should probably try VR but not forget really connecting with people in real life

I just find it interesting the real life and the VR side

Good story Ak

Maybe he feels attracted to you and the VR thing was an excuse.

I feel bad for you that you need to share this with strangers. Is this your social media update?

I was once once well away from everyone and in the middle of a street.. on the corner.

I was down, and I heard the 'clump clump clump' next to me..

I looked up, and this small girl asked me if I wanted a smoke..

"nah I'm ok hey.." I replied.

"You sure mate?" she insisted.

"Hey nah, I'ts ok.."

"Hey, I know them feels.." she simply said..

She clomp clomp clomped away on her dr martins, her short skirt waving in the hot summer breeze..

I'd never met an angel till that day...

Ill just assume that isn't a serious question


 


And yeah, seems that might be what bar dude is happy about. Or he likes Ak.

I'm still waiting for VR to really get where I want it to be. I'm guessing a couple years at most.. but its already very cool.

Does that mean you are waiting until they have the tactile accessories available?

Yes, it's out there. Expensive, but development continues....

Among other things!

My biggest thing is I want a bit over "full" FOV (large enough that I can't see the edges even when moving my eyes), at least 8k per eye, and definitely better interfaces.

I have some personal needs that I wouldn't mind seeing addressed either, but no expectations. I'm a cripple, so that impacts my experience.

It'll get there
Until then, I'm very happy with my WMR set.

I hope you reminded him to shut the Oasis off on Tuesdays and Thursdays because reality is what's real.
