Oculus Rift

Might want to hold off on a new TrackIR if that's in your future. OR is slated for commercial release in Q1-2016 for about $200 supposedly.

Great video of what it's about and shows the tracking very well...but remember, most importantly, everything is also in 3D (which can't be shown in the yTube vid)!!!

Cannot wait...saving my pennies now...

I see one in my future too!

My only concern is seeing your keyboard while wearing that thing.  I'm not sure if you can see under it...?

Lots of talk about it on the Star Citizen forums for the last year or so. Many people have been trying the devkits.

Seeing the keyboard is one of the main issues, but most HOTAS users seem to do just fine without the keyboard.

Motion sickness is another major issue reported by some people.

Just a couple nuggets I've gathered from reading the feedback.

It's definitely on my list for a couple or so years down the road.
