Is VR The future? Eyes & Resolution. (Gaming)

As a young teen I learned how to raytrace & would wait DAYS for my poor LCII to render a simple scene. This was before I got a math coprocesor daughterboard which cut it down to somewhere between 12 & 24 hours. Many years later when Half-Life came out I was curious about using raytracing for Barney's shiny helmet and I wondered when they would have enough performance to get real-time raytracing into video games, even if it was just for reflections.

Halo 2 WAS supposed to have real time reflections in the Master Chief's visor :-p
