    .. VR is nice, I guess, but some people have problems when they try to us it…

    Yet another VR thing, of which I never see them being put over peoples heads who wear glasses. ADA compliant, I think not.

    I wear glasses with the Viveand it works fine. The only complaint I have with any of these VR systems is that none of them really work well for me with narrow IPD

    The thing is, what I really want is a comfortable solution for working *in private* even when I’m in a public setting, like an airplane or a cafe. I don’t want head or hand tracking, I want someone to ship a comfortable HMD. We finally have the glass for it, dammit.
