Is VR The future? I went to VRLA to find out (Gaming)

Great read. Thank you.

As for the tech itself, I felt it was pretty good except for two things. First, none of the units had a high enough resolution. The screen door effect is real, and it's a significant detraction from the experience. Each eye was 1080p (~2K), so realistically you're looking at 4K per eye to eliminate this. I don't know many systems that can render two 4K images at 60fps right now. Second, and this is minor, but none of the units completely filled my field of vision. I always had the black from the edges in my periphery, so the field of view was too narrow, and in a way felt like tunnel vision.

Just give industry a few generations and a little commercial success, and maybe we'll see explosive progression here like we did for smart phones.
