Ya'll should rename this blog to "Oculus Rift Notes and News".

If we just shifted the fashion topics over to a discussion of whether Oculus of Glass looks better in 'geek-chic' it'd be done coverage wise.

"If we assume each Oculus Rift dev kit owner has given a hands-on demo of the device to an average of 35 people they know..."

35? How did you settle on that number?
Let's have ourselves a survey:

OPEN QUESTION: All those of you with Oculus Rift devkits... how many others have you shown these things to?

There've been about 10 million units of the new XBOX and Playstation. So I think it's reasonable to project that VR headsets, including Oculus Rift, could sell more than a million units if they just captured 10% of the gaming market. That seems very doable.

Sighs. All this fuss over the Oculus is just a bunch of Technorati falling for Valleywag hype over the VR they've been dreaming about. They really really want it, so are willing to ignore the practicalities.

The thing being that the Oculus doesn't work well with standard UI paradigms and thusly is an extra expense..alongside a monitor. Do you think all those Facebooking moms are going to run out and get one? Do you think I want to wear a heavy head mounted display for marathon gaming sessions, let alone the fact that many people can't tolerate the thing for more than a half hour.

After all the already existing 3D blu-ray/games via LCD glasses hasn't exactly taken off.

How many people even know 35 people? Anyway, this whole thing reminds of the Segway and how every single family in America will own one by the year 2005. Most people won't even wear a hat when its -10, I doubt they will put on the geek hat.
