Did anybody watch Jimmy Fallon last night and see those Oculus goggles?

If so, what are your thoughts? For those who are unaware of what they are, they're goggles that simulate the game being played right in front of your eyes.

I'm not surprised that someone has been working on something like this the last few years; it was only a matter of time.

Also Bad Religion played on the set. That was awesome.

Well, Courtney Gears didn't seem to mind.
88 Fingers Louie were a hardcore punk band. 88 Fingers Eddward was a nickname on Ed Edd'nEddy. Pretty cool reference.

Future of gaming. Whoever gets support for this on next gen consoles is going to win the generation.

I was pretty impressed actually and I never saw a 3D film because i scoffed at the marvel.

Didn't see it. Does anyone have a link?


Here's a discussion about it with the designers at Quakecon:

It should be a pretty fun peripheral. Maybe it's easy enough to develop for that a lot of games will support it.
