VR Links

Handpicked links about virtual reality, curated by Peter Rojas.


Hi again. Reviewers got their hands on the HTC Vive this week and I put together a roundup of reviews below. Not sure when I’ll get mine, but haven’t received my Oculus Rift CV1 yet either, so I’m just sitting tight right now and mainly using my new gaming PC to play Civ V on fully maxed out settings. 
Tons of great stuff in this week’s issue, make sure you scroll all the way down. The section with links to stuff about non-gaming VR is especially weird and wonderful. 
As always, please get in touch if you’re working on something in VR or have a link you think I should include in next week’s edition. Also, if you like my newsletter would you mind sharing it?
Thanks!
Peter
