    Are any of you familiar with the latest Pokemon Go craze?

    It's a good example of the beginning evolution of a VR system crossed with the real-world.
    Art is Nature in the flask; Nature is a vial thing.

    Except for Windows, doesn't your Mac have all those already? And I think you can run Windows on it with Bootcamp or Parallels... Unless you want a dedicated system, which, according to the requirements above, should cost much less than your Mac... A mid-level laptop has all these, for around 700 - 1000 Euros or less (1000+ if you want an SSD, which I highly recommend).

    Yes I am, but it is just a silly thing... VR has much greater potential. IMO. But yes Pokemon Go is part of the overall trend.

    According to my research, and in order to squeeze the most juice out of VR I need PC power. And I only need to get the hard drive (no need for a monitor).

    Yes Pokemon Go is a big big step. The next step will be to combine Pokemon Go with "real" money. Just like when world of warcraft etc started making money on ebay and news of child labour gangs forcing youngsters to level up WoW avatars rose. BUT WoW was to complex and "nerdy" not something most girls would like because to them it is the direct opposite of socialising. Pokemon Go is easy and social acceptable with almost no need for prior setup.
    Pretty soon Pokemons will be able to be bought and sold in the "real world". Plattforms like ebay will create auction rooms JUST for virtual goods.And this will be the point when big buisness and mainstream politics will jump on the bandwagon.
    Funny but maybe in the end what will liberate us all will not be Jesus but Pokemon Go...if I would be god this would make me laugh.
    A ridiculous saviour fits a insane world perfectly.

    Pokemon = Ope Monk

    Ope = Silly
    Monk = Monk

    Or
    Pokemon = poke monsters
    Poke as in control others to do something
    ...
    but still I like the silly monk interpretation more allthough I see far lesser connections.... a meme with Pikachu dressed up like a monk with long beard,straw hat and fake robe and shit could literally be worth gold in VR. ^^

    The reason people fear VR is because like DMT it is utterly subversive.

    Thinking about this I guess it is valid to point out the AR as a complimentary aspect of VR. AR being of course Augmented Reality... and this is going to be a game changer as well. This Pokemon thing is a very rudimentary version of what is about to come.

    Finally tested the Oculus. There are still a few things that need to be improved, but besides that it is pretty awesome.
