I remember a time when i wanted to work in Virtual Reality.
No not like work IN it, but create VR products. Work in that line of work so to speak. I was obsessed. It was back when i was at Uni.
There was no such thing as the Internet , it was only the Arpanet http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ARPANET back then and we use to hang out on Bulletin Boards (BBS) and talk via text based consoles
- Everything was text based, you had to drill down through heaps of directories to find the cool little file you wanted to download or FTP to your computer
We’ve come a long way hey?! hang on a minute, just got to answer this SMS errr text message.. yeah anyway ..
Windows had just come out and you could get a mouse to work with it if it was a Logitech 2 button one and you had the correct drivers for it (from a BBS) .
- Windows 1 – revolutionary
Our Uni had 1 machine that could do 3d imaging at the time. It was about the same size as a modern day tower server, but cost $90k. I quit Uni shortly after to get a job and get married.
It was a few years later that i found out, that after about 30 minutes of playing the original version of Doom, i felt completely seasick and felt like fertilising the carpet.
- hhhhwwhuupp… dry reaching already
I was never going to be the guy to test, let alone develop any revolutionary 3D VR headset that changed the whole world.
After all these years and all the technology advancements, someone has finally cracked it
- Completely undetectable, easy to wear…
We are in good hand guys… we can relax.. at least the vomit won’t mess up your carpet… aaaahhh progress
