Yes the VR headsets look stupid they are too bulky be cool if they could get them as small as a pair of shades.Being something of a science nerd I've long since found out it also helps to be something of an engineer as well.
Cutting edge science has innumerable potential applications BUT practical implementation has to be taken into account as well. VR is currently a prime example. It has so much potential, but currently it's highly impractical for any sort of general application/adoption.
To get the "whole"/"true" VR experience you need motion trackers for you hands and body movement. Merely seeing in VR is but a tiny part of it. Such systems exist (in rudimentary forms) but are expensive, bulky, and very unreliable at present. Someday we may (probably) get full VR, but not anytime soon.Yes the VR headsets look stupid they are too bulky be cool if they could get them as small as a pair of shades.
