I haven't used my VR helmet in years.... maybe it's time to sell it.

I used to have a set of these ...

Used them w/my 3DO for maybe a week or so, but returned them as I couldn't see enough enhancement to justify the cost ... it was basically like playing Wolfenstein while sitting to close to the tv. :P

Just watched that video... just what everyone wants, to watch their own teeth being drilled into. LOL

HMDs really should block out as much light as possible, unlike those my headset is big and covers the eyes. I think I'll pull it out sometime this week and play with it. I remember Metroid Prime was awesome with it.
