    I want one more and more. I’d be especially interested if does eventually release with Android, and presumably some access to the Android roster of apps.

      Now there’s an interesting tie-in — the Oculus Rift and Android. Yeah, something like that would be pretty sweet.

        Imagine shows or movies designed for this thing. It’d be a really fun and immersive experience.

    The Rift by itself isn’t enough to sell me. Now give me the ability to move around in the game… then you might have something. Too bad this thing is so expensive, I really want to try it!

      Wow, that thing is crazy cool! I’m kind of amazed that it only started as Kickstarter project. I can see it in my house now…next to the treadmill… 🙂

    I’m really looking forward to this, just the cost of it is going to be super high

      You’re not wrong there. But it’d be great to see this technology someday become as prevalent as computers.

    That looks pretty neat. I was hoping this kind of technology would become real someday. Strangely enough, I might wimp out and never use it.

      I think I’m in that same boat. Like, It’s been really cool to watch the progression of VR over the years, but I don’t know that I’d actually find something like the Oculus Rift all that enjoyable in pratice.
