"I'm a clumsy fool, there for VR is a bust this year" meanwhile I'm having the time on my life. Also VR will not be any different from that with that level of fidelity for another 5 years. You have to factor in battery life if you want something wireless and all the sensors that have to be powered and latency.

Glad you're having fun. That wasn't might point. It's too cumbersome right now. You're right though that truly great wireless solutions could be another year off.

I have doubts on this as there are some limitations in VR. You will need a VR headset to access any content. However, in AR, you can access content using your smartphone or lenses so it is a good option to reach more users.

I agree that AR looks promising. The Lenovo Tango phone is an important first step

I don't care about the wires, because I have no intention of clearing a special space in my house to wander around in. That's crazy. All I want is for prices to come down far enough that I can have a reasonably good VR experience on my PC without causing my own divorce.
