It would be great to have one of these, but the ascetics really need some work done on it

That looks huge!!

With something that big on your face, your neck will start to get tired, it'll make it horrible to use!

I sense future neck pain right there. Those who buy this will most likely be putting alot of gaming hours into their day and it does not look comfortable. Even those straps will dig in/wear and cause soreness.

I see many heads in the future with slightly less hair from the strap friction of head sway.

The future way to spot Gamers.

Over developed necks, and index fingers.

People are still into this dumb VR thing? More like a waste of money from Valve. They could have spent it elsewhere. Don't see VR becoming big for a long time.

I think this could be very exciting. I'm well up for the VR thing being a success and a bit of competition is always good at the beginning

Its like home cinema 3D. All manufacturers had to jump on it to get on the market and not lose out even though it was a temporary fad. It helped sell units. Thats all they care about.

Personally I think VR is going to be far more detrimental to the eyes than staring at a screen. After all, they advise against gaming in the dark as it is more damaging to the eyes than in daylight.
