    What would you improve?

    Well first off there is no sollution for people who wear glasses. The headset should be adjustable depending on eye sight. Also I don't like that the screen ends in the corner of my eyes. It is true that you forget about these "black" areas, but even so there should be none. Finally (and maybe due to my eye sight), I could see pixels. Like when you look at a TV screen up close...

    All these things are easy upgrades and it will come. I tried an older model also so haven't tried the latest.

    It also gave me a bit of a hangover, but I expected this.

    I was in an African world with lots of elephants, and I could sense the size when the elephant walked up to me. It was not far off from how that would feel in reality.

    Donít let the delusion of reality confuse you regarding the reality of the illusion.

    This is true and very disappointing.

    Pokemon = poke monsters
    Pokemon was originally going to be called Pocket Monsters.

    cool. I had an interesting 'virtual' experience once on how the mind is able to create a 'presence' quite easily just by concentrated thinking. This was a bit beyond our current technology though, as the mental-creation was imbued with intelligence. I'm sure the images in the VR headsets help that out quite a bit.

    Next step for VR? Artificial intelligence interacting with the viewer!

    There are 6 episodes in this season, all quite brilliant IMO.

    Yes it is interesting that there is such an increase in VR related TV shows like this one, Sense 8 and Westworld... and Dr. Strange... and many more.

    Seems to be the zeitgeist.

    Indeed, but I think 'Black Mirror', especially season 3, stands out in being UN-apologetically dystopian and IMO closer to what's actually happening, perhaps closer than many of us would care to admit.

    Black Mirror is on Netflix. Stumbled on this in my social media feed:

    For those who don't have Netflix, all episodes can also be streamed online.

    A few episodes of the third season are heavily centered around social media, especially 1 and 6.

    Could it be that David Cameron was carrying out a selfless sacrifice then?

    Episode 1, Season 1 WARNING: material is of an obscene and sick nature!
