Virtual reality at home
Sony’s Morpheus Virtual reality, the Oculus Rift, and an as yet unnamed Microsoft device. All three are being feverishly developed and fine-tuned. With each boasting solid software support, at least Microsoft’s device appears scheduled for a 2015 launch. Healthy competition means the Rift and Morpheus VR should follow with consumer launches of their own, and advocates will ensure at least one is accepted. It’s still too early to know whether virtual reality devices have a longer-term appeal. Yet the coming year should help to answer the question. Particularly as if, or when, one of the three aforementioned products comes to market, we can be sure the the others won’t be far behind.
