I’m at the same place, so excited I have to comment but have not much to say yet. I upgraded to a 17" Asus ROG with the 1070 video card and installed an SSD drive. I have the Oculus Rist $399 (BestBuy) set up. I fired it up a few days ago and was too amazed to try describing it here. “Collider walls” and everything else set up exactly as the instructions indicated. When you enter the virtual world, you’re in some trailer, fitted out on the inside to look like the Millenium Falcon, sort of with tubes and bundles of cables and monitors everywhere and a counter in front of you and on either side, because you’re standing in the trailer’s kitchen. On the counter are various ‘retro’ machines that might be a printer, or a microwave or a paper cutting machine it’s hard to tell. Overhead on the right is a VHS player.
Right in front of me, what I thought was maybe a counter sized oven, suddenly, Wall E (from the movie) wakes up, sees me, freaks out and blasts out of the trailer. Then you discover you have two hands, and you can use them to reach things, press buttons, insert discs, VHS movies in black and white and watch the old grainy video, a 3D printer that makes things that work, and more I can’t remember.
Now I’m refinishing a room and moving furniture.
