Re: Maybe not for TV right away
@elizabethv I didn't know there were 3D TV adapters. I think I would like to try one some day, but I'm not a fan of 3D movies so I probably wouldn't keep it.

Re: Slow Headset Adoption
@freehe - I would almost think company training purposes (or maybe even schools?) might be the best places for VR to lay the ground work needed to make it more popular. Similar to Apples initial investment. I could see several job types that would likely benefit from the use of the VR for training purposes (police officers, EMT's, I could even see it being useful for retail and food service type jobs.) Create a few fun, interactive science or math games. (How about virtual reality disection of animals?) Make the headsets affordable enough that a company would see the benefit in the initial investment in a bulk order or two, get people to see the possibilities in a "forced environment." And see if it really takes off from there. Maybe the next set of Oregon Trail kids will bring VR into a more stable future.

Slow Headset Adoption
@elizabethtv, I was not aware that they could change a regular TV to a 3D tv either. However, what are the benefits of a 3D TV other than watching movies that are produced in 3D.

Headset adoption is slow because they are no real benefits for using them other than gaming. The gaming community is huge but headset companies will have to find other benefits to attract customers to use the technology.

I recently saw at a conference that offered a presentation on using headset for training purposes for companies but this requires training, budgets, culture change, safety concerns, legal protection, and assessing ROI.

It will take more than a drop in price to get customers to buy the headset at an alarming rate.



The virtual reality industry should focus on other technology that can provide quick benefits at a low cost to consumers.

Re: Maybe not for TV right away
@elizabethv in Asia I did see people pre-download digital media - all shows they want at home to hard drive and plug hard drive into the car entarteinment unit for a long road trip :)

for now CD/DVD/HD-DVD/BR-DVD is almost dead media...  it like tapes or VHS... :) how I see it as everything is cloud and stream...

Re: Maybe not for TV right away
@batye - I almost find it a little disappointing what a failure HD-DVD was. When Blu-Ray and HD-DVD were released I really would have bet that HD-DVD would do better. Though I was never in a financial position to start investing one way or the other. I guess that's a good thing, because I totally would have gone the HD-DVD route and now been worse off for it. As it stands I still don't have a Blu-Ray player and have no plans to get one. While I only occasionally buy a DVD anymore (nothing compared to my teenage/young 20s self) they are more often than not kids movies and typically for our car on road trips. Just as soon as they can figure out how to let me stream to a TV in my car (this probaly exists in higher end vehicles) without eating through data like a half starved banshe, I won't be needing DVD's for road trips anymore. Until then, my occasional investment in good ole' DVD's will remain.

Re: Maybe not for TV right away
We have such experience, though, when actually going to the movies (iMax et. al).   I wonder what your view is on it?

Re: Maybe not for TV right away
As I eagerly await your guidance @bayte, what I am curious to see as to why you think there is something "new"--what specifically are you waiting on?   I recently, as an FYI, tested out NY Times 3D App which was kind of cool on my ipHone--but the practicality of it is still of concern--is that why you've not been as involved as you'd like to be?

How about others?

But here is the thing:  We can't forestall progress--that's the ultimate challenge right?
