I find it quite interesting that a movie in 1982 was already exploring the possibilities of telepathically-controlled aircraft systems. I can't think of any other movie that portrayed that before Firefox.

I can't think of one either.

Back in '73 / '74 I did a report for Advanced Biology class on Biofeedback. My, how things have changed!

Flight of the Navigator in '78. Might not count because it involves aliens kidnapping a kid and using his brain to run their navigation systems.

I am planning a serious new PC build, aimed primarily at VR, within the next 8-12 months. Sometime shortly thereafter I also plan to update my VR headset (currently Quest 2).

I am giving serious consideration to making a big leap in price range, and right now the Pimax Crystal is in the lead for my VR $$$.

PM, take a look and see what you think:

That F-18 vs. MiG-29 dogfight looked stunning! Maybe I will go VR sooner rather than later.

Remember these videos, as most VR videos, are of the desktop mirror image NOT the actual headset video. There are "through the lens" recordings of various headsets which give a better idea of actual headset clarity.

This headset just became a contender for my next HMD:

High-end VR headset Varjo Aero is now available for half the price

NOT a limited time deal, this is a permanent price cut.

This fellow really likes the Bigscreen Beyond for simming:



As I understand it, both the Varjo Aero and Bigscreen Beyond depend upon having, or obtaining, the Valve locator beacons and hand controllers. The PiMax Crystal has inside-out tracking.

Yes both the Varjo Aero and Bigscreen Beyond require Steam VR base stations for tracking. Of those 2, and based solely on reviews by others, I believed I would prefer the Aero. Great resolution and very good FOV. And my understanding is that for seated flight siming one base station is adequate for tracking, which adds about $150 to the cost.

This guy has used pretty much all HMD available. Here are a couple of his videos on the Varjo Aero and Big Screen Beyond, note the Aero video is 5 months old so some things have changed (the price and he's tried the Pimax Crystal since) but if you check his latest videos I believe he still ranks the Varjo Aero as best overall.

Another good video comparing the Aero and Crystal

I wasn't aware that Aero did NOT support AMD GPU's!

I have recently updated my MB/CPU/RAM and plan on a new GPU (will also have to update power supply at that time) later this year and I have also decided (95%) on the Quest 3 as my new HMD later this year.

So I was quute excited to see this:

You almost had it. Don't include the question mark. Fixed it for you.

Camelcamelcamel alerted me to Amazon having the Quest 3 at 5% off this morning and once I checked on that deal I saw a third party Amazon dealer that had one at 12% off so I ordered that one.

Thanks for that link F4U. I think I'll be ready to pull the trigger on a VR set within a couple of weeks.

If you do, I'll be very interested in what you pick, why you pick, and how it works in practice.

As previously mentioned, a few years back I bought $800 VR set -- and sent them back for a refund -- VR was not "there yet".


Sapphire Pulse RX7900XTX, 3 monitors = 23P (1080p) + SAMSUNG 32" Odyssey Neo G7 1000R curve (4K/2160p) + 23P (1080p), AMD R9-7950X (ARCTIC Liquid Freezer II 420), 64GB RAM@6.0GHz, Gigabyte X670E AORUS MASTER MB, (4x M.2 SSD + 2xSSD + 2xHD) = ~52TB storage, EVGA 1600W PSU, Phanteks Enthoo Pro Full Tower, ASUS RT-AX89X 6000Mbps WiFi router, VKB Gladiator WW2 Stick, Pedals, G.Skill RGB KB, AORUS Thunder M7 Mouse, W11 Pro
