I'm nearly just as excited for this aspect of the Rift as I am for the gaming. God! I want this thing!

Wish I could try it out just for couple of hours I have a simple home cinema system nothing fancy in my small flat so I can compare.
I be worried it may not good to wear for long periods may give me eye strain or headaches.

Octulus Rift + Kinect (XB1) = Closest thing to VR.

did i understand this correctly?   it's just like one of those stereogram pictures that fools your eyes/brain into seeing 3D?

You need to use a head mounted display such as the Oculus Rift which immerses you into the experience, giving you perception of actually being inside of the game/application.

 

Having your own private Cinema in a box is a very interesting idea which is coming to fruition.

yea!  kind of like at DisneyQuest in orlando.  they have a cool light saber thing that you fight another person with that type of 3d thing on your head, and an alladin ride where you fly around the city on a magic carpet.

 

some people get really motion sick when they do it, but it didn't bother me much

Off topic question, but how did you get the youtube vid to work?

I posted one on the video thread and no matter how many different attempts (share, embed etc...) I couldn't...
