For me, so far, it does make me feel a bit queasy. I have now had about 5-6 friends and none of them had the effects I had. I bought a newer Video card nVidia which has special OR drivers, I'll see if that works better.
So far I've only done a handful of demos. The thing really is amazing, it is a better experience than the first time you saw Doom or Quake. VR will definitely be HUGE in the future.
I got the DK2. They plan to improve the resolution and make the headset smaller and lighter before the finished product ships, and work to further reduce motion sickness.
My friends all of them adults were BLOWN AWAY. All of them turned into kids again wearing this thing.
Stay tuned, I'm learning more about how to tweak and adjust it and so forth.
I think the HoloLens from MS looks like an absolutely amazing product. Not taking anything away from Oculus here, as they are completely separate devices with different functions, but I like how MS glasses allow you to have an overlay over your existing environment.
The Oculus is clearly the winner for someone looking to create a full 'world' to immerse yourself into, but the MS one appeals to users who do things other than game, or caters to a game like Minecraft that allows you to build a castle in your dining room. Now it makes sense why MS spent 2 BILLION $$$$ to buy Minecraft.
Cain, can we get a pic if it to show its dimensions ??
Does it fatigue your head at all like my wireless headphones do ?? After 2 hours, my ears are screaming for relief from my vice grip headset.

I played this in Vegas this last October for the first time using the OC. It was IMO the most amazing thing I have ever seen for video games. The Oculas Rift is and will change ALL VIDEO GAMES FOREVER!!!!
