  1. Hi There
    Im interested in more details about the Omni directional treadmill you posted on Youtube…. where is it? is it commercially available? …further, I do see some drift. is this something that you are working wirh? ..also some questions about interfacing


  2. Hi
    I want to thank you about this blog..It is very useful
    I am studying VR in MMU in Malysia..I dont have any idea about my future job..Can you give me an example of work fields..I mean that when I can work after graduation..
    Thank you

  3. Hi,
    thank you for your nice words =)
    For a list of the different applications your could start by reading this article : http://cb.nowan.net/blog/state-of-vr/
    Then you can also create your own field, there is a lot to be created!
    Then it also depends on wether you want to be on the low level programming side, or the 3D modelling side, or the experience creation (high level scriptig).
    Anyway, do what you like, happiness will follow =)
    Let me know about your decision and maybe see you one day in Malaysia !

  4. Hi, your site is one of the few truly informative HMD sites on the net, thanks for your efforts.

    Have you come across the VR1440? It appears to be a succesor to the VR920 for consumer use, but information is scarce.

  5. Hi Neil,
    I have never heard of this HMD but I sure hope it has more resolution and FOV =)
    Let me know if you find more information !
