Without a headset it is obviously not even average, the avatars still look anonymous and have terrible animations. It is kind of pointless anyway even demonstrating it on a big screen when you have to keep explaining that "honestly, with a headset it looks amazing".
One begins to wonder what the secretive 200 invited content creators have been doing. Wouldn't you think that between them they might by now have donated something better than these worn out, way over used demos that are once again dragged before us. It just all looks tired, like they wore themselves out getting this far and cannot be bothered to do anything new. I mean honestly If they had asked me a couple of weeks before this demo I could have knocked them up something to make people think "hey this might be worth a look". And at least it would have been original content. How tired and dead it sounds to say "we bought these assets and just stood them around for this demo". Even if the purpose is to demonstrate that you can build things from acquired assets at least make those assets ones that you have created yourself and are offering free to users of the platform. Would be nice to say something positive and constructive about Sansar, I honestly mean that, but it is difficult to do so when we are given nothing to work with but amateurish demos and worn out content.
On a purely entertainment basis anyone with any sense at all would buy into playstation VR. Buy it, plug it in, and there you go instant VR, with guaranteed support far into the future. And if you are a professional business looking to produce software, then you go for a professional platform to build it with, Unity Unreal etc. So just who is Sansar aimed at, Just us freaky SL fringe users I guess, but how many of us have headsets.

Also I can't believe these two dudes drive to SF from over the goddamn Golden Gate every day, that's a traffic nightmare. Must take them 2 hours to get to LL!


Maybe that's why they didn't get time to put a more inspiring demo together :)

You know the greatest danger facing us is ourselves, an irrational fear of the unknown. But there’s no such thing as the unknown — only things temporarily hidden, temporarily not understood.
