    Except the product i wear in my hair would get all over the eye lenses and I wouldn’t be able to see a thing… Unless they have built in covers for them. And Im not sure it will sit on your head without feeling front heavy… I can see a market for these but as I am into gaming it’s the Oculus Rift for me!! Good luck anyway!!

    All it would take to make this awesome instead of messy failure of hipsterish wishfull thinking besetted by oily or falling haur hair is that slim, light headband that works also as a glasses cover and additional support… which they actually didn’t make. That’s stupid. Everyone will tell them that, so I hope they will read it somewhere before making it into production.

    Just spent $670,- on a pair of headphones and an Amp+DAC and I will buy a soundcard to get the best and clearest positional audio I could buy, for total immersion. I don’t think the slightly sharper image and in-build audio is going to even come close to my audio set-up + the Rift. But anything that promotes VR is great in my book!

      Also, my headphones are a Byerdynamic DT880, which are known for their extreme comfort. I can tell you, even these start to get uncomfortable after a few hours. I can’t imagine what it will be like wearing a hard piece of plastic like that on your head for more then 5 minutes. It won’t even be comfortable to wear around your neck…

        My comments + earlier comments about your hair getting the lenses dirty etc. = everything about this seems to suck except for the actual technology itself. A lens covering headband would make it appealing for a lot more people, but I would still like to see it with a bigger FOV.

    Honestly, using VR in an immersive form when you’re in a public location seems like a good way to get yourself robbed. Even on a plane, where people can’t really go anywhere, I wouldn’t trust the person sitting beside me enough to use one of these in that form.
    Anyone who has used the Rift for a long period of time in a private setting only to have someone who isn’t aware of what is happening come to get your attention would understand what I’m getting at. Awareness of ones surroundings is so much more important in a public place.

      I take it you never fall asleep on a plane then? :)

    I guess that’s just confirmation that it’s Yet Another DMD-based HMD, but this time in a fancy buy inconvenient form factor.
