Again: “Breakthrough Glasses-Free 3D Technology on Display at CES 2022”

There have been several interesting 3D solutions including glasses-free, over the years. Unfortunately, the public so far has not been real interested in 3D.

Those that I have seen have looked pretty good, too.

The HP Reverb G2 VR Headset

I just got an HP Reverb G2 VR headset.

I had some difficulties setting it up, plus difficulties getting the controllers paired – and so on. Some of the information at this link will be helpful in overcoming problems you might encounter.

Since I normally use reading glasses, and the G2 has no diopter adjustment, you need to wear your reading glasses or contact lenses when using the system. So far, I have not had success using reading glasses inside the headset – this means I have used it without the reading glass correction – which means a bit much eye strain for now.

I have used the headset in conjunction with MS Flight Simulator in VR mode and this makes an already impressive simulator even better – and yes, it is in 3D then too. For now, the set up each time I launch is a bit time consuming but perhaps I will find some shortcuts.

I expect to have more comments on the G2 in the future. I  have much to learn.

“Scots cop called officers for help after being pursued by drone but dot in sky was actually Jupiter”

Reminds one of the Sussex Police and that Gatwick drone fiasco two years ago – when the only confirmed drones in the sky were the FLEET of industrial drones operated by the police themselves:

It was only after a drawn-out “pursuit” that she sought help from senior officers, who told her it was Jupiter – some 365 million miles away.

But it’s okay, lights on buildings and towers miles from Gatwick were being reported as drone sightings. Clowns.
