The Awesomeness Of Head-Mounted Displays


Stood by the Oculus stand at GDC, I heard someone say "the thing about all this VR stuff is that it hasn't moved on a great deal from the '90s." Can that be true? For a moment I assumed this gentleman in the crowd might know something I didn't, but it turns out that there's a good deal that VR and head/body-tracking can do in 2013 that it couldn't do in the 1990s. For a taste of that, you'll want to read this and watch the video below, which places the user in a Doom 3 level with a Portal gun, and shows off all manner of body tracking and movement cleverness.

Go look!
