Silicon Valley Gets it.

This is a show that knows how to have fun with its market's foibles!  I bet this poking fun at itself is probably doing oodles of good for the VR market.  Love it!

Skyrim on PSVR

Bethesda really seems to be all in on VR on multiple fronts.  First they announced Doom VFR (i.e. a special Doom VR for HTC Vive) and Fallout 4 VR.  Their latest guessed it...Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim in VR!  This is old hat for PC gamers thanks to the pioneering work of the Vireio Perception team, and seeing Skyrim modernized with a VR twist on console is a great sight to see!  What remains to be seen is if the PSVR enhancement will later transition to the PC world.  Skyrim in VR is scheduled for release in November this year.

Fallout 4 VR and Doom VFR News From E3 Expo

It's great to see some real VR news coming out of E3 Expo this year.  First up is Doom VFR (we think VFR was coined by the same Doom weapons naming team that came up with the "BFG".  You figure it out.).

This looks to be a stand-alone virtual reality game in the Doom universe complete with teleportation and unique VR characteristics.  It's being promoted for the HTC Vive, though pending injunctions aside (Oooooh!  That was really low!), who knows what else it could really run on if compliant with the OpenVR platform.

Doom VFR is slated for sometime in 2017.

48 Hours of VR Later...

Welcome to the virtual reality version of the "Hold Your Breath Game"!  Seemingly on a mission to prove that extended use of virtual reality devices is harmless, Sarah Jones from Coventry University and Dean Johnson, Head of Innovation for Brandwidth, recently spent more than 48 hours wearing virtual reality devices.  Their only exceptions were 5 minutes per hour for logging and bathroom breaks.

It wasn't just about wearing the HMDs, however!  Between them, they partaked in stunts like wearing VR goggles while driving go-karts, walking across the wings of an airplane in-flight (via a Samsung Gear VR pass-through camera), and...perhaps most dangerous of all...getting a tattoo.  According to Dean Johnson, the only after-effect was some temporary blurry vision for a couple days once the endeavour was complete.
