50 here. I got my first computer at late 15 (a Dick Smith System Blue - with built in cassette tape) and got my Apple II+ at 16 (with the original Wizardry and holy crap - disk drives and a whopping 48kb RAM - I had to pay huge amount for that extra 16kb upgrade from the standard 32Kb - and couldn't afford the extra card that would have got me to 64Kb). Times have changed and it's been amazing to see it all happen.
Really exciting times we're going through with VR now and very happy to be part of it all..
16 - N64 - Mario Kart 64
I feel almost too young for these forums.
Almost any idea can seem obvious once the inventor tells you how it works.
Wow the majority of people here is older than i thought, why most VR entusiast are 28 and up? we need a new blood of VR junkies to keep rolling the bandwagon. BTW i am 21.
I was worried I was the oldest here till Roaster posted
Veteran of the '90s Virtual Reality boom.
I owned and operated 2 x Virtuality (W-Industies) 1000SD units and then a 2000Su Duo for over 10 years until the early '00s. We hired out the systems to the Corporate entertainment and exhibition space and we put thousands of people into VR environments over the years.
We bought system #3 that had been used by Fabergé on the HERO hang gliding promo tour in 1992 and then spent the next dozen years hauling the machines across the country. We used to borrow extra systems from Virtuality so I was a frequent caller at the factory and got to see some cool stuff, play demo games and see prototype kit.
Exciting times and quite a lot of what Virtuality did is still valid even today.
