Panther Posted March 28, 2017 Report Share Posted March 28, 2017 I'm sure many people here have their idea of what an ideal true virtual reality (credit for that term goes to @kayaba from Brain Jackers). However, the smallest differences in features could be the difference between dominating the gaming industry and being in the news for a few days before dying off. Think of it this way: kids will always be a major part of the gaming industry. Let's say the device cuts off your hearing while you use it. There will be many safety concerns, sure, but on top of that a parent would never buy something like that for their kid. Even putting a kid for sleep would be hard for a lot of parents to grasp. If there was nothing to stop you from logging off before you get dehydrated or very hungry, the product's public reputation would be really bad.A system would need to satisfy what people are looking for but cause no real safety concerns. These types of limitations may be very important in the kid industry, but say someone wants to experience complete immersion. That could be a second product that is much more expensive, used in the military, and for studies. The kid model could even have parental controls which would be another major selling point.If a company or group succeeded in making some form of true VR, the best way to have the most success would be to have multiple levels of immersion, all of which would still be immersive. There could be an education model mainly based on ar, a kid gaming experience that creates close to 0 safety concerns (and have none of the things kids would be better off not seeing like super realistic gory scenes), maybe a couple other options, and then an expensive full experience for military use or rich adults. That sort of plan would dominate the vr field as you would cover all of your audience.Anyways, that was my take on the type of things that would bring the most success to a group that is able to create something to the true vr effect.
