When porn is good in VR then you will know it arrived.

Sweat band technology still hasn't caught up unfortunately.

I remember hearing the main reason Sega VR was canned was because people were stupid and would try to walk around with the thing on their head, even at trade show demos.

Untethered VR is dangerous dude.

I remember my aunt had one of those and when I was 9 it felt like The Future.

From way back in the thread:

Guess what Griffin just released?



The PowerMate Bluetooth.

I just read the whole description on the website and I still have no loving idea what it's supposed to be. Is it some kind of wireless volume knob?

Argh, I want one of these knobs so much. It looks perfect for fixing the poorly-designed proprietary UIs at work. I would pay the sixty bucks for that bullshit knob in a second if it weren't mac only. Imagine if that design had made it into the standard keyboard layout how much happier we would all be.

They need to bring back the Tully Toggle.

The problem is they never adapted to the iPhone paradigm shift. The Blackberry engineers reportedly said the iPhone was impossible, even after it was announced, because they couldn't imagine a battery big enough to power that huge screen. They just didn't see the need for a form factor past their own until it was obsolete.

Blackberry couldn't figure how to get around the battery life problems with a screen that large, and neither could apple.

Man, if something like those discs don't take off, in the next few years we might be on the verge of loving tapes out-living optical discs for practical purposes.

e: All those sci-fi novels written back in the '70s knew what was up.

The flipping cassette head seems bizarre, and I expect it's an eye-candy Unique Selling Point. It's can't be that hard to have a bi-directional read head, although Wikipedia suggests that it's tricky to get right - some systems had mechanically flipping heads instead of the whole tape.

My dad's late 80's Oldsmobile Eighty Eight had the no-flip tape deck. It blew my loving mind.

Edit: must be thinking of a different car after Google image searching. But as a side note I remember my dad preferring this colour and even in the early 90s I had the sense to plead for the grey interior.
