I should probably just man up and buy the kit... 1k x 1k is getting pretty close to a usable resolution. I just keep thinking to myself... 4k phone screens are out now, and 2k x 2k resolution would be TOTALLY usable - maybe dev kit 3?

probably not, this is aimed at gaming and nothing can handle 4k well yet...
remember this is a 1920x1080 split in 2, it still renders it at 1920x1080

3840X 2160 would being most pcs it its knees and is not playable at 60fps unless you drop quality.

buy a kit, and if you dont like it you can probably get close to retail on ebay.

Yea I know... but it's what I want!!! The problem is just pushing the pixels... I see it from a computational side as more like a 3d 2550x1440 screen... the system isn't computing two totally independent views but rather one view from two slightly different angles. Once interfaces go mainstream that can push the pixels I think we'll see something... but HDMI 2 seems to be taking forever.

This thing has been in development for so long, it might miss its chance if other VR products hit the market before them.
I was hyped for this back when it was getting started, but its easier to wait for next seasons of my series than this.
