Oh and what is that higher resolution going to do for latency and frame rate? Hmmmmmm.
It kind of shocks me how uncritically positive this article is. The situation to me reads differently, more like "any joker can plug a higher-res LCD into an Oculus DK1 spray painted white."
Let the competition begin.
Interesting thoughts below that Apple could be making a VR headset, I doubt they would be entering the market considering the lack of content, but for all we know Apple have been working with developers launch a new VR product with a lot of content.
Microsoft recently said they're not interested in VR, but surely they're not stupid enough to miss out on a potentially new market once more like they did with mobile phones and tablets, are they? I think it is safe to assume most companies are working on a VR product in some way, shape or form.
I think 2015 is going to be a very interesting year for VR. Exciting times ahead.
As good as Oculus is, it's really not good enough. And the idea that 2.5k (i.e. 1440p) is the key thing vs. 1080p and far lower latency is ridiculous. Bear in mind, Oculus uses the best displays they can get in the quantities they need, these guys are simply showing off in-house prototypes.
