In 1993-4 Sega ( video game king) Announced a set of VR Googles as a product to ship soon. Every magazine and every wanna be new media guru pontificated on them for a year. No one paid attention to Carmacks demo of Doom at the VR Conferences. No HMD no “real” VR, no “real money”…

At that same conference I stood next to the marketing director of SegaVR at the urinals in the Men’s room. ( how life works)  I asked him about the “future” of the platform from Sega, and how i was uncertain about what i had heard as being “real”.
Needless to say the truth trickled out that day.

Luckey is right.
