have fun I had one from Caseking few weeks ago. It's a lot of fun, especially "the lab" from valve. The vive just becomes annoying after about 2h on the head. It's still a bit heavy. And make sure you have 3x3m space

Yeah this new VR stuff is a lot bigger and heavier then what was around in the 90's. Kind of funny if you ask me. I have the first gen I/O I-glasses and it ways about 10 ounces with the head tracking system on. I think its 6 or 7 ounces without the head tracker. Not only that but I can still see what's going on around me and it has 3d, it's amazing how ahead of there time they were. The newer I/O Glasses are just a set glasses with screens in them.

I tried some of the new stuff and I just don't get it. They're way off track if you ask me. I wonder if this is any better?

Small update

Currently sporting only a GeForce GTX 780 Ti, which is a bit on the edge for proper VR. Christian is also giving it a shot and of course we need some VR Mark loving ...
