The Lion King ‘Set’ Was a Bunch of VR Headsets in a Giant Warehouse

Long before Disney’s remake of The Lion King hit cinemas, it was a beacon of curiosity. Obviously, director Jon Favreau and his team weren’t going to film real lions, they were going to use digital technology to create all the animals, as he did with great success in The Jungle Book. But The Jungle Book is The Jungle Book. This was The Lion King, a remake of an even more popular, culturally resonant film. What would making this movie look like in real life? I was lucky enough to find out. Read More >>

The VR Revolution Is Alive and Well, It’s Just Not Ready For Your Living Room (Yet)

When HTC and Oculus launched their first-gen virtual reality headsets back in the spring of 2016, it felt like the beginning of a revolution. These headsets were immersive and sophisticated, unlike anything the public had seen before and a leap forward from disasters like Nintendo’s cursed Virtual Boy.

Unless you are one of the rare VR evangelists, you probably don’t have a VR headset in your home. Read More >>

HTC Can Have My £799 When It Finally Makes the Vive Pro Wireless

After months of teasing (including some great demos at CES), HTC’s Vive successor, the HTC Vive Pro, is finally on sale. It’ll cost £799 for the headset alone and ship beginning 5th April.

CES 2018: VR Takes the Next Step Forward with the Vive Pro and Vive Wireless Adaptor

But then in 2016, headsets from Oculus and HTC/Vive showed that the VR experiences people had been writing about in scifi books for years were finally within our reach. Read More >>

The biggest problem with VR is the cost of entry, with the cheapest fancy headset costing around £600 in total (that's PS VR). Even mobile VR from Google and Samsung isn't particularly cheap, since you need to buy a pricey handset to strap to your face. So now we have the new trend of stand-alone VR headsets, i.e. the kind of thing you buy once and don't need any extra hardware to enjoy. Read More >>
