    Its application to pornography will be amazing.

    Virtual reality will be unreal IMO.

    I think people can still talk while watching tv or play on the iPad, so this should solve that.

    Everyone is soon going to look silly standing in their offices or homes and dodging imaginary bullets and arrows.

    The VR phone viewers as they stand now have a real wow factor, but the resolution is not really sufficient yet to have a completely immersive experience. The pixels are quite evident, even with retina and higher resolution phones. They show something of what's coming but they're not there yet.

    I like the Google Street View which now is viewable on a phone through a Google Cardboard device. There's some (though not many) pretty cool travel docs.

    Been playing with a Gear VR and my Galaxy S7, it's so much better than I thought it'd be. Youtube 360 videos are often lacking in quality but there are some pretty fun ones esp roller coasters :)

    I love the games the most, aiming a gun by simply looking is much more intuitive than moving a mouse or controller nub.

    I tried that, but someone said I looked silly with the 85cm UHD LED, and I tended to topple over unbalanced... :p

    I have been underwhelmed by previous iterations.
    But I am prepared to be whelmed.

    It alternates between positively geared. It likes it both ways.
