i dont intend to be impersonal or anything, my ellipses were suggesting that im saying it very softly...... im interested in seeing why people are interested in it, but its definitely not something i would go out and purchase. someone told me that they had to drill things into their walls to install their vr system which i thought was funny though

Even soft movement can be tough for people.  Especially jumping or slopes/stairs.  Try some games that use teleport locomotion, that's supposed to be a lot more comfortable (if a bit less immersive).

I used these things.  Enough of them to hold up 8 lbs (~3.6 kg) even though the lightbox + power cord are probably only 1 lb (~0.5 kg) at most.

There does appear to be some sort of motor inside of them though because they vibrate while they're plugged in.  I hope that doesn't fuck up the adhesives.

it's more that i don't care about it at the moment while the price is still generally high and headaches etc. are still an issue than that i don't care overall. it's hard to get excited over something that's still not very accessible

plus i don't really want to splash out hundreds of on something that may or may not be supported in a few years due to format wars or whatever

I'm super excited for VR but it's extremely cost prohibitive in Canada.

I played another game with the teleport movement.  Did it for an hour and didn't get nauseous so that's cool.

I did have a period of about 10 minutes afterwards where focusing on objects in the real world felt weird, as well as half-expecting my actual hands to pass through solid objects.
