Microsoft 'DreamWalker' Experiment Takes First Steps into Always-on World-scale VR

quote [ Microsoft unveiled an experiment this week that explores the future of always-on virtual reality. Building a system called DreamWalker, Microsoft researchers walk around in the physical world while still being fully immersed in VR, essentially taking the first steps into replacing your morning walk with something that’s not only reactive to your physical surroundings, but ultimately more interesting. ]

Gearbox finally released Borderlands 2 VR for PC and it is a shit storm. $49.99, buggy as hell, no multiplayer, and ported by someone who must not have played a VR game in the past 2 years.

Also, I need to do another nsfw VR post one of these days. Lots of new stuff out there...

Karl Pilkington predicted this, and thus it has come to pass.

I like how we're running as fast as we can towards Rainbow's End (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rainbows_End).

I think we're headed toward WALL-E.

Minus the part where we reach space travel at that level, sure. I can imagine an earth of robots sweeping up corpses and other trash. Also, Three Robots on netflix.

So the world will be a hellhole, but we won't be able to see it. I guess that's cool.
