VR: Are We Ready For It?

My conclusion after watching this video is that I’m not. Not because I can’t adapt to it but because, simply and stubbornly, I just don’t wanna! =^.^=

I can’t speak for any of you, guys but all this has zero appeal for me. So sorry to say, the Lindens can take their Sansar shit and stuff it where the sun don’t shine. 🙂 Got no time, no patience, so money and no need for second hand experiences. Why life my life vicariously through a machine with premade worlds, premade experiences and premade emotions when I have a real life to live where all that is available for no extra costs? And, just like we jokingly said about Second Life, like 10 years ago, the graphics of RL are just soooo much better and realistic, so why swap?

    • See, I never thought of VR like you, in a classical gamer’s way. I’m a over 50 y/o housewife, not a gamer, so I wouldn’t even pay 10 Woolongs for something I’d never use anyway. But let me quote from your very good blogpost, please:

      “Is it still worth it?

      Quick answer: no. The Rift is just too much of a hassle to setup and with all of the extras you have to buy like sensors and VR covers it’s just not the best headset for your money anymore.”

      And that’s exactly it! The setup alone would take more time as I’m willing to spend in world on some days. I don’t need virtual reality to read and answer my IMs and group notices and do some building on my land or go sailing. Total overkill and so not worth it.
