So what made the difference, why is VR happening now and didn't in 1990?

I think the answer is cheap, solid-state, high-frequency accelerometers and gyros that allowed for reliable positional tracking.

In the 90's, VR was just wearing a TV on your head. It was just the visuals of today without the head-tracking. Robust head-tracking gave a strong illusion of immersion, and the final hurdle seems to have been high-frequency visuals at 90 FPS. With that they seemingly cured the nausea effects.
It's still wearing a tv on your head never mind the actual games shown so far aren't all that impressive at all. But hey run out and get your 800 dollar head ware paperweight. It's the FUTURE! Just like Progen that has also been around since the 80's.

After watching that PAX video, all I can say is that VR should be done in private... those people look ridiculous using it.

You want reality? YOU CAN'T HANDLE REALITY! Seriously. In fact according to Professor Donald Hoffman humans in general aren't designed to deal with reality from an evolutionary standpoint.

Simply put perception and fitness trump the ability to actually see reality, even a little bit.

Here's an amazing Ted Talk where he talks about it. Very well worth the 20 minutes.

PSVR is where its at. Ive migrated back to consoles. PC's suck EA is right. The grafx and framerates are now good enough on consoles. They are not needed.

Might as well enjoy the future while you can. We are gonna be back in the stone age soon when hillary gets in.
