    Tried it with Google Cardboard/Viewmaster. Worked, but only supported up to 720p res, which when splitting an image and combining into one is kinda shit looking.

    No shit? Leo Laporte was talking about it on twit and he said it was pretty good. I guess he bought a Panasonic VR camera that cost $60,000 and takes 4 hours to render 60 seconds of 360 video but it's perfect according to him. This VR stuff is about to get real big real quick.

    Maybe the higher res's are available to subscriber/app users only? I'm more excited by the possibilites of AR more than VR. Article with some really cool videos of Google's Project Tango.

    Agreed. AR is much more interesting and useful IMO. I think google glass wanted to get AR to take off but it fizzled.

    More than anything I think people were freaked about the idea that someone could be wearing those and recording them without their knowledge or consent.
