Remember virtual reality? Its buzz has faded at CES 2019

Quote:
Just a few years ago, virtual reality was poised to take over the world. After decades of near misses, the revolution finally seemed imminent, with slick consumer headsets about to hit the market and industries from gaming and entertainment to social media ready to hop on the bandwagon.

But the buzz over VR has faded to a whisper. At the CES 2019 tech show in Las Vegas, Facebook’s Oculus unit isn’t holding any glitzy press events, just closed-door demos for its upcoming Oculus Quest, a $399 untethered headset due out in the spring. Other VR companies are similarly subdued. HTC announced two new headsets — one with only sketchy details — while Sony has some kiosks for its $300 PlayStation VR set in the main hall.

It’s a world away from the scene a few years ago, when VR products from Samsung, Oculus, HTC and Sony seemed omnipresent and unstoppable at CES. These days, VR is mostly a niche product for gaming and business training, held back by expensive, clunky headsets, a paucity of interesting software and other technological shortcomings.

VR, AR, living in a holograms matrix... Whatever you want to call it. This is an idea that isn't going away.

My reality is pretty good, so a big "pffft" to VR for me. The idea never really made its way over here in the first place....

Taco MacArthur has a little shameless behaviour in the past
I guess some video games would be cool to play in VR but other than that I have little interest in it. The advancement in technology is cool though.
