Yep, I was an early backer. It has been incredible seeing what people have come up with for it.

@Caleb: I've got an oculus rift and I can tell you it is incredibly immersive. Mind blowing, even in its prototype state

You lucky sausage!!!

@David: ...how fun would it be to wander through a virtual reality Roger Dean world?  To go through those mushroom-shaped houses and climb those endless stairs?

That's the sort of thing I'm hoping to experiance with Obduction and (if they meet their stretch goal) the 3D helmet thingy. If (when) I get this I'll tell you what it's like :-)

I also loved Yes's covers in the good old days.   I had Roger Dean's book "Views" which had most of the Yes art and a lot of other stuff he did (I loved his Babe Ruth covers as well) and his other projects - he designed a "Sea Urchin" chair which you could approach and sit in from any angle.  Clever guy.

But how fun would it be to wander through a virtual reality Roger Dean world?  To go through those mushroom-shaped houses and climb those endless stairs?  and to travel through space with those broken planets from "Fragile"?   I wouldn't want  a game - my attention span does not go beyond the average game of Solitaire - but I could wander round a Roger Dean world for hours.....

@Janine: I have to say I played Myst and really dislked it. The graphics and immersive quality of the game were really impressive, but I was uncomfortable with the lack of people.

Myst was also a bit difficult -- plus to a large extent you were forced to solve puzzles just to move around. Riven had more people around (though most of them tended to run away from you, apart from the ones that didn;t who most of the time you wished they would :-) One good thing about Riven was the fact that you coudl move around from place to place without solving every puzzle.


I'm not too bothered by lack of people -- I just like walking around and seeing what's what :-)

I love your enthusiasm Max, but I have to say I played Myst and really dislked it. The graphics and immersive quality of the game were really impressive, but I was uncomfortable with the lack of people. Guess I'm a people person. Love my RPGs where I can have a dialogue, not just chase after someone who disappeared.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
