    Kind of reminds me of that local 80-year old Irish granny who uses her new Bugatti Veyron to pick up grocery in her village. No pan intended, it is real, she won a few millions in lottery and now is used by lottery companies for advertisement. This is as stupid as it gets...

    This is her...

    I think there are many ways in which Oculus Rift can be misused just the same.

    And as much as I like the technological progress, I don't think that Oculus Rift is a good thing. People will play it without moderation, detaching themselves from reality, which in the long run will lead to serious sickness and mental problems. There is already research data available that supports it.

    Lol! Right, because people are not like this now...

    I can think of at least 535 people.

    For what it's worth, I don't think OR is a good thing either. It's actually quite innovative, and reducing it in status to "good" or "bad" smacks of under appreciation. :p

    What? Really? "Missusing OR" is the take away here? Not a single person wonders when Nintendo will squash this ripoff of their IP?

    This is like saying every tablet is a ripoff from windows ce or palm devices for that matter... this is ages ahead of what VB was.
