Yup - maybe time to invest in a VR home network?
Anyway, I watched "Click" on the BBC News channel this morning and they were doing a bit about VR, and whether it's ready for "prime time" or not. I could have almost cried, the pure rubbish they were coming out with, I can tell you.
If we are depending on people like them to spread the word, then the future looks bleak for VR!
They were basing their whole assessment on only one "VR" device - Gear VR. Not only that, but even then, the stuff they were saying about it was just wrong. Like making out that if you like what you see in your headset and want to pass it to your friend to look, you can't because it switches off. Huh? They also said that the reason the Rift is now cheaper is because Oculus/FB are doing so badly with it, that they are desparate for sales. Oh - and apparently there is a big hole as far as content is concerned. Once you have watched some 360° videos, there's nothing else to do with it.
Basically, they were telling people not to bother - though they did emphasise that it is just the beginning for this tech and people should just wait a few years before investing.
Still, that's the modern BBC for you. They should just stick to the news - but even that is mostly just politically correct, liberal-lefty feminist bull these days. They actually make me feel ashamed that people around the world will be watching them and thinking it's what all Brits are like. If I want the actual world news, I have to watch something like Al Jazeera.
