The evolution of VR

I have been on VR since the Oculus Kickstarter was a success and got a DK1 and a DK2 Rift – but early on Valve demoed a type of VR that seemed like something from the far future called “The VR room”. The guys over at RoadToVR had a great article about the experience here.

Last year I was among the lucky to receive one of the earlier Vive devkits and the experience blew everything out of the water I had experienced before. Ever since I have been a strong supporter of roomscale VR and tracked controllers.
Now Make released this very cool video of the guys at Valve discussing a bit of the history of how the Vive became a real consumer product and the long path to get there. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
