Virtual Furballs

HA! It's cool they have a demo of it on their site, 'cause otherwise I wouldn't have been able to try it out myself. But seriously: Just replace what happened in that Surrogates movie with what happened in this comic and they would have had a blockbuster hit.

Scary vertigo-inducing fun sounds like one of the big problems we're seeing with VR (and even 3-D monitors/handheld devices). Our brains just aren't wired to detect motion via sight while the fluid in the ears says 'nope, not going anywhere, Cap'n'. Games that emphasize crazy ragdolling while getting tossed around sound like a great way to lose your lunch. Still, I've been waiting for this stuff pretty much my whole life... now if only I had the gold to scrape together, I'd get myself all these fancy new shinies.

Hey now, some of us can actually play that stuff without upchucking into a comically over-sized bucket. Not all of us are defective. /no1

No, that sounds more like you *are* defective. Kind of like people who can drink milk into adulthood.

Yay, I'm a defective wizard! Detective Defective!
