  1. VR as the first step toward Star Trek’s Holodeck is the only way VR makes any sense to me for anything except gaming. I just don’t see making people put on head gear as something that has any chance at greater adoption than home 3D TVs.


    1. I’m really curious to see how this turns out. I agree with you about not seeing many use cases (and I still think something Google Glass-y w/o camera would be more useful to me and most people), but there’s so much smoke there must be fire somewhere, more precisely somewhere beyond extreme gaming and very narrow verticals ? Or the exuberance is being irrational, again, and VR will get (Green-)panned.
      I wonder if what I feel looking at the picture of M. Zuckerberg in a room full of helmeted borgs is what my parents felt when they saw rooms full of people using PCs ?

      1. That’s the part that is still TBD, right? Is the industry excited because they have compelling products in the pipeline that we haven’t seen yet? Or are they excited because there just isn’t anything else to get excited about right now and they wouldn’t know what to do with themselves if there wasn’t something to be excited about? I can’t help but think the latter. I hope to be proven wrong.


      2. (A bit OT) Speaking of Google Glass I did hear about one opera company’s experiment using Google Glass for supertitles. That was about the only use that sounded interesting to me.


        1. I could use smart glasses that pop up notifications and allow me to dismiss, open (on phone), answer, or mute x minutes (I’m sure I’m missing a few, but KISS). Bonus points if they also serve as an authentication device, which I still think is a killer app for wearables (they all should be able to confirm you’re you, and alive)
