Quote: "The final topic was that of John’s VR glasses experiments that
he has been doing, as well as the work he is doing with the company
Oculus. This is obviously a passion for John, as he talked a lot
about it. He detailed out the issues with current head mounted
displays, what he has done to mitigate them, and the final cludged
together product that he was able to produce essentially on his own.
He was quite excited to get in touch with the people at Oculus, as
they have a nearly shipping product that takes HMD VR to the next
level. Topics involved per eye resolution, optics, latency, absolute
head position, and software support. This took up the major portion
of his talk. It is an area that he obviously is very excited about
and hopes to expand upon soon."
