Kotaku's Richard Eisenbeis says that "at times [he] literally forgot [he] was really sitting in my living room" while playing with the Oculus Rift—a new virtual reality gaming eyeglasses system—for five hours straight.
Jed Fisher's insight:

There is a quote from Bladerunner which I love when Tyrell says - '"More human than human" is our motto'.

When it comes to computer graphics I like the motto "More real than real". Oculus is still a long way away from this but it is indeed another step towards it.

Jed Fisher's insight:

This is insane. Every year, year after year, computer graphics forges ahead. The great quote from Bladerunner - "More real than real", we are getting there. I highly recommend watching this.

Also looking forward to meeting YOU at Siggraph this year. Along with Tyler and other members of the team I'll be at Siggraph this year (Anahiam (near LA), July 22nd-25th. http://s2013.siggraph.org/ ;)

As Jed Fisher - rightly said this is insane. The highlight of any siggraph is never the sales floor shows - but the the technical papers and conversations with attendees - its there where you get to glimpse the future of graphics and simulation and this years technical papers preview is outstanding.  Should be an awesome event.
