I made $22 Virtual Reality Gloves.

quote [ This is the journey of how I decided to make my own VR Haptic Gloves and the first 3 prototypes on the way to making VR Haptics affordable for everyone. ]

The dude that made the VR gloves that have been all over TikTok and youtube has responded to the recent popularity with the intent to start a diy series to show people how to make the gloves and teach the basics behind them. Pretty ingenious techinques.

There's also a Humble Spring Into VR Bundle - kinda disappointing selection, but if you're just getting into VR, they're a pretty good start for a library.

The NEW Yaw 2 VR Motion Simulator Is INSANE - Exclusive Look!

Cool, I was hoping to build my own version of the Yaw, but that doesn't seem likely anytime soon.

Hand haptics and brain input stuff in the extended.

After the Fall | Cinematic Trailer

quote [ Explore the remains of a civilization ground to a halt in an alternate 1980s, craft a range of ranged and melee weapons, and wield devastating powers with real-life movements. Go solo or join up with players worldwide as you face relentless hordes and colossal bosses in a bid to take back the city. ]

From the creators of Arizona Sunshine, this has a very Left 4 Dead feel. Looking forward to it.

SteamVR Body Tracking Kit Much Cheaper Than Vive Trackers - this looks like it may have some potential. Not quite the accuracy of Lighthouse trackers, but at half the price-ish...

There's a place where you can hug a stranger and never get sick

quote [ From video cuddle sessions to immersive VR experiences, people are finding the next best thing to in-person affection. ]

I ordered my bhaptics vest months ago before everything went crazy with my living situation. Just got it the week before I moved out, it's pretty sweet. I'll do a full review one of these days once I have time to really mess with the SDK, but what I've used it for has been interesting. Lots of additional perks to the VR experience, but I haven't really run across anything that's tried to really mess with your brain's ability to benefit from synesthesia just yet. Half Life: Alyx was fun with the extra sensations here and there for sure, tho. Boneworks was actually a bit scarier, especially big jumps that result in an extra rumble in your midsection.

Why the bottles in Half-Life: Alyx look so dang good

quote [ The bottles are not transparent. But they look transparent, because Alyx is pulling the cube map for your approximate coordinates, and projecting that pre-baked image onto the side of the bottle you?re looking at. It shows you a distorted view of the space, but it?s a wild illusion that absolutely works. ]

Interesting deduction of shader fakes in simple English.

VR Porn IS More Real and Intimate Confirms German University Study

quote [ Virtual reality porn is widely marketed as being a far more satisfying, intimate, and of course ?real? experience than watching regular 2d porn. A study commissioned by leading site BadoinkVR in 2018, did find that the stimulation of VR porn was not only felt to be more positive by the viewer than 2D, but also that it required more interaction and ?work? on the part of the consumer. ]

Sega VR Revived: Emulating an Unreleased Genesis Accessory

quote [ Equipped with a high-frequency inertial measurement unit and two LCD screens, the Sega VR headset shares a lot of fundamental design with today?s VR headsets. That design was nothing short of revolutionary when Sega officially unveiled the unit to journalists and retailers in 1993, promising to break new ground on the frontier of virtual reality. They miraculously hit their $200 target thanks to technology licensed from a start-up company called Ono-Sendai, whose patented tracking solution could be manufactured for just $1. ]

When I was a kid trying to get into VR, one of the DIY methods for immersion was hacking the SEGA 3d glasses for use with a PC. I never got to do it, but SEGA always seemed to have that extra bit of hardware and research in their back pocket.
