Virtual Reality
Virtual reality or virtual realities (VR), also known as immersive multimedia or computer-simulated reality, is a computer technology that replicates an environment, real or imagined, and simulates a user's physical presence and environment in a way that allows the user to interact with it. Virtual realities artificially create sensory experience, which can include sight, touch, hearing, and smell.
Most up-to-date virtual realities are displayed either on a computer screen or with a special virtual reality headset (also called head mounted display), and some simulations include additional sensory information and focus on real sound through speakers or headphones targeted towards VR users. Some advanced haptic systems now include tactile information, generally known as force feedback in medical, gaming and military applications. Furthermore, virtual reality covers remote communication environments which provide virtual presence of users with the concepts of telepresence and telexistence or a virtual artifact (VA) either through the use of standard input devices such as a keyboard and mouse, or through multimodal devices such as a wired glove or omnidirectional treadmills. The immersive environment can be similar to the real world in order to create a lifelike experience—for example, in simulations for pilot or combat training—or it can differ significantly from reality, such as in VR games.

    Quest 3 - Tracking Lag?

    I've just upgraded my Rift CV1 to a Quest 3, and one thing I was hoping would have improved was the slight lag I've always found with motion tracking. Nothing major, just the slight sense that my VR 'hands' are a few frames behind my real ones. It feels almost as if I'm dragging the VR ones...

    Well this is a surprise. Didn't even know this was in the works... I've very fond memories of the original. Sadly, user review suggest it's released in a sorry state. Hopefully some post launch patches will sort it out and it will be ready for the first sale price.
