Motion sickness won't be a problem at all for the vast majority of people. The consumer versions of both the Rift and the Vive have a refresh rate of 90 Hz, much higher than the development kits shown last year.

While the Vive does offer "room-scale" VR, the Oculus doesn't really offer 360-degree views, it does have some occlusion right behind the user, due to having only one (front-facing) tracker sensor.

Quietly and lagging behind by over a year. Oculus started development almost three years ago. Personally, I'll be preordering the HTC Vive next month.

Are bosozoku associated with right-wing groups? Some of the images seem to point in that direction.

As someone who followed NAFTA closely from its inception in the early 90s, let me assure you something: This will only, truly benefit a small fraction of people, the one that needs it less at that.

But yay, butter! /sarcasm

Posted in: New World Order dances through Yokohama’s Chinatown – but where’s Genki Sudo? See in context

Okay, I don't get it. To deep for me. Maybe Genki can explain it in his next tweet.

He's said it over and over: "We all are one."

Statistically, that is the least of your health concerns when running ultra-marathons. Just look at that ridiculous quote. Ok, don't run marathons with one month of training.

So many questions... How on earth did they get to this point? Random boys, a mom and their children beating a 17 year old to death. There has to be a very sad, twisted story of extremes in here.
