A very short post: The OCULUS RIFT arrived (www.oculusvr.com).
First impression: Far better than expected. The immersion is perfect. To perfect. I checked for the person in the back of the car when Kirsten called me from behind. I tried to grab the keyboard in the virtual scene, not the one on the desk. And yes, being afraid of heights is not limited to the real world. Longer report follows, will try if my simple unity terminal is working, waiting for a long time to walk through my created maze.
