I've had an HTC Vive for right about a year, and I've never once watched porn on it.

I find that shocking, and, actually, a little depressing.

I think I'd need more than VR before I started banging the furniture

Bump into furniture? Use Hololens, where the VR characters interact with your hotel room furniture.

Microsoft HoloLens Review, the future is here NOW!

This game, and the crime game that follows, use the room and the furniture in it in the VR world.

Skip to 4:18 to see how you can see VR characters close up.

I would be afraid to watch VR pron... You can't be certain someone's not watching you... watch porn.

I do not know the basics of these things (VR headsets, not masterbation).  Do they work with phones, computers, or both?  After watching the video posted above it seems to be a phone thing.  Are these a relatively new thing?  I ask because I looked up the cost of the HTC one mentioned above and it is about $800--. one could get hookers and blow cheaper than that I presume.  That sounds like the cost of new technology.  Which leads me to the question of availability of content.  Is there a lot of it, and other than porn and games, what is it?  I can imagine it would be good for watching sports and concerts, visiting museums, etc.

But VR porn offers men a very different experience that's so immersive, it's been likened to "virtually cheating on your partner."

Yeah, no. Until you can actually feel skin-on-skin contact it's only going to get to a certain level of "immersive"...

You should.  It's fun.

Well, the problem with non-CGI VR porn - or VR film in general - is that you're dealing with a fixed camera position.  Even if you get 360 degree field of view, the camera position doesn't change as your head moves, which can be really disorienting.

Games are great in VR, but video just is not all that impressive.

Cheap ones us your smartphone and can cost $10. In fact you can buy cardboard ones for a couple of dollars. You can also buy remote controls for operating menus, moving etc.

Ones that have the tech built in start at a couple of hundred dollars, and usually need your PC to work, and have a cord connecting them. Top end ones like the Hololens (which is AR not VR) cost three thousand dollars and are full PCs in the actual headset. AR means you can see the room you are in and the VR elements interact with the room, so the game shown above maps your room and knows where the walls are so can put 'holes' in the wall that stay where they are when you move.
In VR you see nothing but the image projected by the headset, hence the "bumping into furniture" comment in the headline.

The Japanese are hard at work on it. We'll have fully effective give-up machines in under two decades.

I'm thinking of getting a Vive system.

Can anyone tecconend getting one or should I wait for V2.0?


(Totally not for porn but once the Japanese get their act together who knows...)

So, I can tell you haven't actually watched a 180 degree vr video.  It puts you in another person's head.  It's ridiculously immersive.

They're fun, but not earth shattering. It's a 1080p screen in each eye, which is not quite sharp enough for desktop work, but fine for arcade games. Things like World of Warcraft have too many little buttons on the screen for it.  Plus a lot of older games are not suited for the ability to turn your head.

I did some hacking to get Doom and GTA5 working in my Oculus, and was quickly disappointed by the limitations of third-party hax. You'll find games not made for VR to be clunky and motion-sickness inducing.

Games made for VR on the other hand, are immersive and exciting, until you get used to the gimmick. V2.0 must be better, but they're not even on the horizon yet, and will require a monstrous gaming PC to do better than 2x1080 at a high framerate (and you need a very high framerate to not have head-turning jitter, which is a leading cause of motion sickness).

//honestly, these few minutes of sit-down, 180 degree videos are the better use case.

You can look around, but as Sum Dum Gui said you can't move around, the camera is always in that position. Actual VR and AR, like the Hololens video I posted above, you can walk around the room. You can walk behind a character. Those 180 and 360 videos you can't.
