I was really excited when Occulus Rift was announced and when people got the first versions of it. But since then my interest in it has waned. I'm not sure this thing wont just die out again, I never hear anyone talk about it and I don't know a single person who has bought one. And I'm almost 100% that if you buy it, it's fun for about 3½ hours before you realize this should have been something you just rented. I think it does have a lot of potential though, mostly as a teaching tool, it would be way more interesting, impactful and memorable to "visit" space/world of bacteria/barrier reef/Waterloo battlefront/whatever than reading about it in a textbook.
