Have purchased 2 of the iTheaters and returned them. The graphics were shitty and because of the shape, unless it's exactly right for your face you can't see them well at all.

I'm going to try the high end ones soon (but they're about 200 cheaper at Amazon) but haven't wanted to part with the flow yet.

Still working on my coathanger hat mount for the iPhone.

HMDs suck.

unless they are perfectly focused PER EYE you will get sick very quick. Then once you take it off, your eyes are all fucked up and you start to feel even sicker.

The consumer versions all have horrible resolution. Sure, its like a 36 inch tv 6 feet away, but... its only 120 pixels wide.  There are more expensive consumer models that do have the resolution, but then they go an shine the shit through plastic lenses and Vaseline.

I just want the direct neural interface and be done with it. This using of already faulty body parts is too annoying.

when is the singularity already?!?

A Kurzweil fan, eh? I dunno. Knowing how hard it is for me to write extraordinary software, I'm hardly in favor of some college dropout code jockey writing a container for me. Getting reduced to shitty software would just suck.

Then once you take it off,
Take them off?  WHY!?!?!  LOL

i tried out  a model in
1997 at a computer demo fair that hooked up
to DOOM...  it also had a joystick like the WII
where you just move it around in the air and
whut not but it was cool cause it was 360 spherical
you could look up, down left right, turn around
and there would be a different picture... Then I
thought wow in 10 years there gonna have
way better than this!!  ... still waiting.

Did you ever play with this some more?

Ive been thinking about mounting the pda and eee pc
on something like this to begin the transformation
to cyborg.... was thinking of using
a few dollars worth of metal brake lines and chrome
clamps so it would look all techno-industrial like the
human interface chairs in the matrix and what not....
then id just need a chair that drives around and id be all
[heavy] set...  ROFLMAO

 Idea...

Maybe a small dc generator made out of an r/c car motor mounted
onto a backpack too..   lol

I played Dactyl Nightmare at least 50 times.  I used to play up in San Francisco a few times every time I visited.  Loved that game!
