    The Totem is still alive? (It was on kickstarter in 2014)

    But it doesn't have the smiley face any more! :(

    The only worry is if the market gets flooded with cheap rubbish headsets which actually turn people off VR both Rift and Vive are good products and will sell VR but others may have a negative effect.

    On the flip side it does push towards standardisation which will be nice in the future where all VR headsets will just work like monitors but quality will vary.

    The headset its self must be hooked up to a computer. Why would people care then?

    Yeah that design is really hideous. Might be comfortable with the rear head brace but it looks like you're wearing a toaster on your face

    The specs don't look rubbish.

    These guys keep upgrading their specs as they go along without ever producing anything.

    Agreed.  I really like the 120 FOV.

    The specs are bullshit. Sorry. These sort of HMDs have good specs but not the technology to drive it. There's a reason why Oculus/HTC/Sony do not have those specs.
    Excuse my bad english. I speak to you through the google translator. :P

    Hopefully competition will drive innovation.

    Yes, I've looked for any real demo of the unit and I cannot find anything live.  Makes me wonder if it is going to go the way of that MASSIVE green and black one.  Forgot the name, to be honest it is because I could not stop laughing at how incredibly terrible it looked.  I actually wondered if they were using 13" LED TV's inside of it, it was so big.  It was reviewed on Road to VR and a pic was taken that made me burst out laughing at work.  I actually got the attention of the entire department, though being the manager, it is easier to explain away.  :)

    ...What does a VR goggle need a magnetometer for? To ask you to shake your heads around in a "8" shape when there's electromagnet interference nearby?
