Lol, I know right.. That would suck.

They seem really cool and the upgradable features is really drawing me in.

I think I may wait a little while, to get some reviews, and let some of the upgrades come out.

The fact it can handle 3D data is pretty interesting...

I wonder how big in reality and, if it'd fill your entire view?

That is what I am wondering. I would really like to try a pair before I actually buy a pair.

That would be my plan - don't rush at something just because it's the latest thing. What may seem ridiculously future proof and upgradeable now may not be in a year's time...!

Haha, all of us being nerds know this all to well xD
It's sort of a draw back for having a computer as a hobby..
Two weeks later it's out dated, almost as bad as women and shoes.

3D tech is here to stay. I know that much.

Probably would still be better to get a HD projector with a fast enough refresh rate and a silver screen however

This kind of reminds me of Virtual Boy. I wonder if it would do better.
