I used to have a VFX-1 back in the day. In fact I still have it somewhere, despite the fact that it won’t physically connect to any PC made after about 1985. The VFX1, for those of you who weren’t into gadgets back then, was a virtual reality headset. It was basically a motorcycle helmet with little monitors beaming images into your eyes, headphones and a motion tracker. It was supported by a handful of games and the sense of immersion was breathtaking (although whether that sense of immersion was worth the money, time and pain of setting the thing up was another question)

Why am I bringing this up now? Because technology marches on and ExtremeTech are reviewing a modern 3D headset which looks more like sunglasses than a motorcyle helmet. Is proper, immersive, stereoscopic 3D gaming set to make a comeback? Get the lowdown here
