Yeah !!!
More and more screen glaces/ virtual reality helmet begin to appear, more the time pass, more the resolution become close to HD regular screen and more the price are low for the same quality, i'm sure the future of gaming and simulation (before another revolution who will coming in 10 year max) but also movie its this kind of virtual reality helmet !!!

@Aries, the price its really expensive, when we have a huge price for this kind of helmet you have great chance to have a HOTAS like the Warthog or other advanced capable to make the keyboard useless, same thing for the mouse, i have the Logitech G700 and with HOTAS Warthog and i only need the keyboard for communication menu, every function for DCS its programmed into my 9 buttons, including recentering Track IR, and two thing can be done, change the files for make a clickable radio menu, and the other its to use a vocal command system who can completely replace the full keyboard, tou just have to know where is your joystick or our HOTAS and your mouse and the problem its gone, no more problems from the keyboard, you can even create a simplified simpit (rudder, mouse in a simple box at your right, throttle at a simple box at your left and a simple support for the joystick between your legs or at your right like the F-16.
Simpit + vocal command its just perfect for this virtual reality helmet !

the keyboard issue is a real point, thats right, but i think specialy for DCS not a very big one, because you have a full clickable cockpit <3DCS


also you can combined that >PERHAPES< with leapmotion (http://leapmotion.com.
I think thats a great thing for people that dont have the skill/room for a own build flightpit with multi monitor or projector setup.

Also i think the Oculus Rift will have a great future and it would be great if EagleDynamic take a look on it and will give us a lil feedback what they will think about it.

At least that thing is in a early state, the developer kits will be ready in december and he consumer version perhapes Q4 2013 <- but thats only my personal speculations

Default Hey DCS DEVS... Oculus Rift!

I'm not sure if your up to date on this, but the devs really need to look into devloping DCS to work with the Rift... This HMD is starting an entire new trend in gaming and simulation!

I 'kicked' in. If nothing else, it will make an interesting item to have twenty years from now, when everyone has them.

We still need to see the keyboard, hotas and mfd buttons. Unless we'd have something like minority report gloves, which could be used for manipulating the virtual cockpit.

That gets brought up everytime (well not the HOTAS) but there are potential ways of dealing with that too. I don't expect this to be ready for prime time next week but given time and funding, who knows.

Besides, it has a pretty high 'cool' factor!

My personal view and I do not speak for Eagle on this:

I think this is very interesting, but until I see a means for easily viewing the keyboard hands-free, I am not sure how well this would work with a DCS title that often requires heavy keyboard use.
