Want an out-of-body experience? Forget about strong drugs or jumping in front of a speeding vehicle. All you need is Toshiba’s new VR helmet, which claims to be a lighter, more wearable version of those virtual reality helmets which everyone had in the 1980s. Didn’t we?
Anyway, it weighs 3kg, and has a 16-inch screen inside, which shows a virtual world that’s synchronised with your head movements. At the moment, it’s just a concept product, although Toshiba reckons it could be used for gaming or movie-watching. I reckon they should get it hooked up to Second Life pronto.
