    Road to VR #BestCoverage.

    New sound is awesome as well.

  • MattWil

    I am excited! I am more curious about changes to FOV more than anything else right now. Hopefully they will address that.

    The new sound is better, thank you for keeping one.

      one-screen design = 90-100° FOV max
      The same for the CK1

    if you don’t want to keep hearing the annoying notify sound, add this to adblock

    If they open it up for questions Ben, can you ask if we’d be able to order a second/third camera for full 360 tracking?

    “We want to deliver on the dream of VR — the holy grail experience of the Holodeck… we’re not there yet but we’re working on it”

    I recently gave an interview about the future of AugmentedReality and VirtualReality. I broach the subject from a perspective of the usages and a global Holodeck. http://www.gregmadison.fr/2014/01/the-future-of-augmented-reality-and.html

    Merci Ben for the great coverage (yesterday also @ Sony’s)

  • Sven

    Thanks for the great live blog. I’m particularly interested in the video card manufacturer issue to reduce latency. Did they mention anything else about that’s not in the live blog?

  • Andreas Aronsson

    Haha, it’s really fantastic how you can keep up with posting! It must feel like playing a typing game, and you can absolutely not allow yourself to lose! Especially gerbaffled about how you manage to link media and post pictures as well as type all this! Fun that you get grief for your Glass all the time, haha! I guess that might be how it’ll work out in the future :) Poor Google!
