It's mostly using PC Platforms but Mac is making moves to implement 3D Virtual Reality into it's products and future offerings. I don't know how many have been over Huntsville or even know what GigaParts is but it's well worth a stop by and see what the future has to offer in computing.
GigaParts is a store, in Huntsville, on Hwy 72, just west of the Research Parkway intersection and specializes in Computers and Ham Radio (Amateur Radio) supplies and equipment. As you walk in you are greeted with a roped off section that they have devoted to Virtual Reality gaming and computing and you have the ability to put on the headset and experience some of what is to come and what's available now. Granted it's expensive, at least now, costing around $4,000 to $5,000 or a very nice outfit to get you gaming but the future is promising and most likely much less expensive. Some of the games are very rudimentary and simplistic but there is enough out there to show how promising this technology is. Driving/Racing games and shoot um up type games are very promising but the game that they are currently demonstrating is one where you shoot arrows using their setup. It's pretty entertaining and quite addicting so there is a potential that it will grow exponentially over the coming years.
If you get a chance to stop by and experience it just make sure you don't get dizzy too easily. It sure beats all the discussions about politics, sports, and religion.
