I'm not so much a gamer, but I think this will make into a good replacement for home cinema, eventually, to be able to watch a movie that surrounds you should be awesome. They will just need to up the resolution.

So how are you supposed to get this thing on your mug if you wear glasses?...
from their website:
Most people can use the Rift while wearing glasses, however it also depends on the shape and size of the glasses. To accommodate as many glasses as possible, the Rift Development Kit comes with 3 removable sets of lenses. Each pair has a different depth that place the lenses closer or farther from the users face. In addition, the screen itself can be moved closer and farther away.

Thank You. You saved me some legwork which I wasn't interested in doing anyway.

This tech is awesome I can't wait until it is done. What is even better is it appears it will be priced reasonably well, about the same as a very good gaming monitor. I know I will be buying one it is just a question of when.
