    VR Park !
    The only issue with something this grand I see....

    Location location location. (for most of us)
    Perhaps it will shine as a model for others to follow including franchising.
    It is a premium big money venture though.

    The personal VR 'ACTION CAM' market belonged to GoPro in the beginning.
    They did absolutely nothing in it for the consumer in the fashion they created the 'action cam' market.
    No less than a dozen company's have passed them by in the vast consumer market.
    They are lucky the consumer demand has been a bit light. But they now try to make things right with this...
    GoPro Fusion
    https://factschronicle.com/the-gopr...era-that-records-in-5-2k-resolution-9245.html
    Something they should have been doing 2 years ago. Instead of expanding into markets they did not understand, they let the action cam market they created slip into others hands.
    Yes they did have plays in the vr cam market and in partnership with Google. GoPro was not all that interested then. Google was.
    JMHO
    The new vr cam seems to be a great spec'd 2D cam but I've not seen anything on price yet.

    .....
    There certainly is a lot going on now compared to a year ago.
    I found this interesting and unexpected this early.

    Roni does interview... Magic Leap One & NBA

    As we know, It's still all pretty ambitious. But keep in mind, one step at a time.
    First we have to see the SDK in this spring.
    Second a DEV Prototype on the 'ONE' before end of year to use the SDK with and make content.
    Third, a price under $2k to make any of the above remotely advantageous for it to be able to roll out to the consumer. My prediction is about $3.5k in cost for it's highly proprietary chips made in the US.
    All things that will still take a few years for even limited consumer adoption.
    But you do have to ask yourself,
    how many of these will sell in 3 years even if they manage to break $1500 $1000 ?
    The reason many do not go to a NBA game is the price of the ticket. But still a nice feature.
    Read the review near the end of a rolling stone article.

    JMHO but I think we are going to be in for quite a wait to be able to purchase and afford this.
    Even if the dev version is released this year.

    I believe most VR & AR 'stand-alones' have been looking for the same thing.
    What they are really interested in is future '5G' networking.
    You just can't send hi-res 360 imagery to these beasts on 4G/LTE networks smoothly.
    And I should say the ML ONE is unlikely to get WiGig in the near term and if it did, that might limit you to Home/Work to use it..

    That's was funny !
    I did read that this morning. Is he reading threads here ...LOL...
    What's worse is while I was reading it, I started to ask why would anyone take that credible to print it.
    It's the only reason I got past the first few lines.
    Then I looked at the source... I didn't know those tabloids could make it high in 'news' search.
    So I did learn something anyway.

    Sony drops PS VR HMD to $199 - limited time frame
    http://variety.com/2018/digital/news/playstation-vr-headset-price-cut-1202702214/

    What's behind this ?...
    Normally, when a major player makes this kind of offering, even though it may be listed as 'limited time', most often, some, many or all of the following are true.
    1-Limited Time returns to normal for a month then to the previous sale price as a norm.
    2-They are expecting a competitor in the market that shaves their price. (think Oculus Go)
    So it helps maintain market share. And steals future potential sales since nobody is likely to switch.
    3-They are bringing a new product to market (v2) and have to justify 'price-points' and/or move the old stock in advance of that.

    In any case, it's good for the industry as a whole, including names when folks can afford entry level..

    I'm as sceptical as the rest of you when it comes to Magic Leap and their promises, but at least it's exciting that they are aiming squarely for the entertainment market - unlike Microsoft who seem content to build up the HoloLens solely as a business and educational tool for years to come.

    Seems from recent interviews that the Magic Leap CEO has abandoned 'mixed reality' for 'Spatial Computing'.

    Roni has never called his tech anything except for 'cinematic reality'.
    The other names that have been used were actually injected by the person doing the interview.
    However, he did try to wipe the slate clean with the spatial computing in that recent interview. But that really does not describe the visual tech, but the means to deliver it.
    AR is still completely fitting for it. So it's still up in the air if he tries to give it a name.
    If I were him, I don't think I would treed those waters either. Let it play out in public.
