Re: VR giveaway
I been watching online VR and 360 degree video for some months now, and although it's nove, the quality is not quite there yet. I see Google and others getting invested in it though, for the PR and head start everyone is going to need to succeed when it all takes off. I'm guessing it still going to be several years before the majority of us are actually using it with any regularity.

Re: VR giveaway
I see 3D novels and videos more as novelty, and gaming being the driving usage behind VR for the forseeable future. Also "experiences" such as meditation or calming beach experiences for potential anxiety treatments and relaxation. 

I've seen some of the early social interaction efforts and they don't really strike me as that compelling.

We're really in 1.0 territory here, and one thing's for sure: things will get very interesting, very quickly on the VR and augmented reality front.

Re: VR giveaway
KBode, there is no doubt VR technology is going to evolve and simplify, and it's going to be fast. Think within the next five years. By 2020, you will see a big change in VR, and in adoption as well. As much as I see the advatages and benefits of VR technology in some industries I also dissagree with the use of VR in other areas, such as social interaction. Unless the social interaction is about using VR to "meet" your relatives or friends who live far away. Other than that, using VR as, say, a VR social network I am not convinced it will do any good. I am not making this up. I have seen demos of VR social networks and shared vacations as well. :/ For example, you and someone who lives far from you could share the same vacation in Alaska. Would you like something like that? -Susan

Re: VR giveaway
kq4m, I would say at this point VR is quite close to reality. At the Wearables Show, a few months ago, you could try VR for business applications. It can be used for training, demos, even real estate can use VR for their sales. Imagine you can select 10 properties you are interested in but don't have the time to go to every one of them. You can comfortably sit and using VR visit all of them in say, an hour? VR is not just about games now. :) Fascinating. -Susan

Re: VR giveaway
I just don't see it really taking off until somebody simplifies it, and we've made enough progress so that the power needed for a high-end PC feeding an HTC Vive or Occulus Rift can fit in the palm of your hand. As in -- probably another 5 years or more.

Re: VR giveaway
The issue with VR is that I think it is going to take a lot longer for people to adopt the technology. It's going to take a lot of convincing to get people to put two screens an inch from each eye.

Re: VR giveaway
VR seems to be the latest in what may be more hype than reality in coming months. It's still an expensive game to get into for the average home consumer. Other than Google Cardboard there's still a pretty hefty investment of hundreds of bucks to get that hardware. Maybe at the Google I/O there will be some breakthrough to bet more folks interested in VR?

Re: Great experience
I checked to see if videos were posted on the web but didn't find them. It's possible some will go up at a later date @kq4ym.

Re: Great experience
I was hoping there would be a link to Wozniak's keynote address. He's always entertaining and informative and it would be interesting to hear what his subject was at the Chicago ITW conference.

VR giveaway
It seems to be the norm in every VR gear giveaway: You have to try them first, and in some cases download an application, as it was the case when I got mine at one of the WIRED events in London.
