As i know VR devices sent in same time pictures to left and right eyes rest do our brain to feel - see 3d model, to enjoy full 3d animations in most cases only people with two healthy eyes can see this, how about people who got only one eye...

In my case i use only rigt eye, left eye is totaly destroyed -95% visibility, somone can explain or got expirence with this case ?

Sorry for poor English and bad grammar.


Hello Oxylan
I think that only the older 3d animations with layered red and blueish images required you to use both eyes to see them with those red and blue colored goggles. I'm not sure about this, but i think neither the newer 3d nor the Rift animations require you to use both eyes to see them. In any case, if I found myself in your position, what I would do would be to consult the ophthalmologist about the possibility of getting an eye transplant (surgical procedure where they implant a donor's cornea in your damaged eye), or one of those new bionic eye implants (electronic component implanted in your eye that will feed image to your brain via the optic nerve). I think the best ones available right now already provide the implanted person with a blurry monochromatic vision.

btw have you heard that saying: "In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king" :D hahaha


Thank you for this extended and vauable replay very helpfull answers, here still hope to enjoy VR in future even with one eye , also thanks for other replays from other forum users .

Cheers folks.

Yes and no.

You'll get the head tracking, but not the Full 3D. (I'd think at least. I /think/ what each eye can see is isolated.)


Yup you can use it and the eyes are indeed totally isolated. A lot of the immersion comes from the head tracking and getting situational awareness. In real life your stereoscopic vision only extends to 8-13 meters, rest is your brain interpolating from visual cues like parallax movement.

mmorpg's e3 review of EVR is up now

here

alomost everytime I look somewhere and see 3rd party thoughts/reactions to this .. it's basically the same.
I think the only negative reaction ive seen mentioned so far is "some people may get motion sickness"

CCP YOLOSWAG is here and he is coming for your game. My deepest condolences to see it walk the same path of Dust514 and die so soon. It would have been fun. R.I.P. EVE-VR

Just a remark about motion sickness, its not a game-breaker in my opinion, it just adds a level of difficulty; Flying in such a way that you don't vomit mid-battle. Though I say this as someone who has a chair with G27 steering-wheel in front of a 46 inch flatscreen only to play racing sims an hour or two per week. Its fun to push the body to the limit, and motion sickness would be just that. Some good racing sims can unleash adrenaline and sweat and a feel of momentary panic, exhaustion, so when you finally cross the finish-line first its like you've just won a sprint against Hussain Bolt; you jump up and run around in celebration, as the TV falls on the floor.
Adding acceleration and deceleration to the EVEVR game would add to game I feel, even though it makes you sick if you do it a lot. Perhaps have two game-modes, like normal and hardcore? Normal being the wuss-setting which does not allow the player to do things that have a large probability of making them motion sick, hardcore being the mode where you have no flying-aids and can pull turns that make your pilot pass out.
