Unless they find a way for users to have a light small non closed glasses and keep track of Real Life surroundings all this stuff will be a hype and no one will stand more than 20 mins straight session, no mather how apealing contents are

metacam oh

They already have ones that keep track of real life surrounds, Microsoft Hololens for example


@metacam, but Hololens is a rig that does not permit, say, leaving one's house or office?

Then it's not really AR in the sense that Glass was. Hololens might be a great tool for certain uses, especially if it's not a scuba mask that blocks out quotidian reality. That's the sort of rig I fear; Hololens or AR seem a good augmentation to the world of atoms, as long as one is not driving a vehicle!

There, this Mac OS zealot even praised Microsoft.


I never use my VR headset anymore. It does not work for gaming. Hours with this thing on my head. No i am back on my old screen.

But it is nice to check out builds in Second life and VR art. I was wrong about that this will be a big thing.
