    Im interested, if you can call it that, partially because, I think, that society en masse, has become alarmingly stupid over the past two decades. As a growing nerdy teenager in the 1990's, VR was the promised land to anyone in the video game, or PC world. It was fabled as the future. It was hyped up every chance that Hollywood could muster up some big cash for what back then was considered to be cutting edge C.G.I. to fool the viewers into thinking the world of VR was actually something more than a damn screen up in your face. VR was a iffy territory, low budget movies disgraced it, making the user look, well, actually they did it right. People using it just look plain old stupid as DURR! But then you had movies that did it justice like the LAWNMOWER MAN.
    It was such a BIG-DEAL, Nintendo made their 3-D (the thing that all the others lacked, DEPTH!) VR system. The VirtualBoy. That lasted about a year. Too many people getting sick, one color, poor sense of location, weak graphics, cumbersome usage, and lack of interest.

    As fast as it came, so it went. And the reason it failed its first time around, (and I understood this as a preteen never even having used one before) was not from a lack of interest or lack of budget. Its a simple mostly un-thought about area of our human OS. Compatibility. We humans are simply not, (yet) compatible with the current VR "screen N yo Face", cough*, "technology" that is so widely used. (makes you wonder if those companies actually give a fluff about you the end-users seeing as they just waited two decades to shovel out the shizz from the past on you all over again. you got the arcadey bubble popping crap, the match colors and blocks, and the Atari classics, on these "cutting edge" devices.... whaaaaaat? )

    The Human OS is a complicated program. Its taken mother nature millions of years and revisions to make it run this smoothly.
    And one thing that the Human OS requires to interact with our environment is....*drum roll*...................our tactile sensory input.
    In order for us to interact with things in a virtual world, we MUST, be able to do it one of (now 3) ways. The first method of touch, left users re-doing moves over and over and over because judging distance and FLOAT level mind processing "am I grabbing it enough?" or, " damn it door, open!", is a ardous task that needed a fix.

    The easy fix, would render the VR element pointless, while at the same time , you would be a GOD-LIKE boss with your ease of doing anything you want as fast as you need be. The Emotive would be your way to go.

    The other like this is the US Military's - DARPA's (I would never trust a single thing they do) Matrix like Human to PC brain hub link

    And finally the double O.G. of all, the PowerGlove!!
    Yeah baby! you can look like a straight up socially inept derp while you match colors like a boss in your local Starbucks!

    That being said. Ive pushed the **** out of my LG G2 and it still beats SSGS5's on benchmarks all day long. (2.8GHz byach!)
    I would like to see what if any improvements the newest version of the G phone has to offer. Before it becomes the "was the flagship until this one came out" like I did with my G2. "shhh I bought it last summer. Im hella poor"

    Thanks for giving to the community and providing a much needed and useful resource for everyone.

    No its not early in its development. In human terms, VR is a full grown adult.

    I've yet to try any of these VR headsets out so I think the thing that excites me the most about it is just discovering what it's all about. Thanks for the chance to win.

    I'm excited about two things with vr: rts games and how will the internet look in vr. Will it be Johnny Mnemonic or something else. Very excited about this technology and glad android is leading this new dawn of technology interaction. No more keyboards and mice.

    I am really excited for VR, because I've always loved the idea of making video games and movies as lifelike and realistic as possible, and this is a huge leap towards that. We're getting closer every day to that future where the real world is indeterminable from the virtual one. (Virtual-Reality)(Also, Matrix) 😀

    The most exciting thing about VR is the possibility of exploring places I'd probably never be able to afford to travel to or places that are generally off limits to the masses. It would make for the ultimate street view.

    To be honest - just for fun. Play some games. I don't think it's serious VR opportunity.

    I think it would be fun to use "VR Cinema for Cardboard" and watch mp4's in simulated 3D.
