Not the first VR headset I’ve found in a retailer here, KMart has had both an incredibly dodgy headset and also the somewhat cooler viewmaster, but it’s interesting to see Officeworks dedicating some space to VR headsets.
They’ve previously done 3D printing though that didn’t end up sticking.
Recently visited Cockatoo Island in Sydney for the 20th Annual Biennale. Plenty of great artworks, however the VR installation was my favourite. It was quite a basic implementation (not even using head tracking). Even without the advanced features I’m now used to the effect of pulling yourself forward down a tunnel while a display was strapped to your head was surreal.
After upgrading an old Rails app from 3.2.x to 4.0.x I started getting a really weird error. Made all the more confusing by the fact that I couldn’t work out why it was trying to load Moped (given Mongoid 5.0.0 no longer uses Moped).
