How sick of Pi's VR hype are you?


A while ago, I was at EAA, and I got to try something that was kind of like a VR set.  It had a display that you held onto your face.  You could drive around a car by turning the headset. Low resolution, bad.  It was interesting, it wasn't great though.
Today, they had a GearVR set up at BestBuy so I tried it out.  I only got to see a little menu thing.  I wasn't sure how to work the thing.  It looked good, even though I could see pixels.  It just felt great though.  I don't know what it was exactly, it just felt great.  It was just a little menu, it felt fairly comfortable, but it was just crazy cool to be able to look around. I'm so excited for the real thing!

 I kinda feel like a lot of people are expecting it to be like the first thing I experienced.  Interesting, but not worth buying.
