    Yep. We really need natural feeling locomotion by whatever mechanism. Tea For God is a good preview of how immersive and comfortable it is to "just walk around", but T4G is "special" in constructing labyrinths that fit inside your Guardian boundary. Other games have longer sightlines, and very few people have a playspace so huge that they can freely walk around their preferred VR gaming area. Teleporting is completely immersion breaking; zooming around like a quadcopter tends to cause motion sickness and is again immersion breaking.

    Ideally nothing in VR should remind you that you're in VR... it should look and feel real! so now that we've pretty much nailed resolution, graphics quality, spatial/directional audio, and price point (with the Q2), it's time to solve the locomotion problem!

    [UPDATE:] See my rave review on Steam of Freedom Locomotion VR, George Kong's bloody brilliant implementation of walk/jog/run in place locomotion. His CAOTS algorithm should imho be industry standard, a third option in addition to Seated and Standing. I like it better than VRocker -- and way better than arm swinger hacks. Arm swinging is a feature of FLVR (for all out running) but isn't required.

    FLVR makes a very impressive demo partly because it doesn't try to be a hack or patch that modifies existing controller interactions. I found VRocker didn't work well with the games I most wished to use it for, and Natural Locomotion was difficult to set up. FLVR is just a demo of an algorithm so it's easy to try out, no disappointment factor when you run into compatibility issues. It's beautifully realised and tremendously convincing.

    Yep! I mean c'mon Oculus devs, back in the late 50's they had projector TVs (b/w) that you could watch in bed. They were used for hospital patients, women in late stage pregnancy, very elderly and bedridden etc.

    Wanting to lie on your back and watch a movie on "the ceiling" is nothing new, it's perfectly reasonable, and in fact I'm kind of outraged to discover that my brand new Q2 won't do something that I assumed it just naturally would. All sit-down apps should also be lie-down apps. How is that anything but a no-brainer?
