I had a chance to play with the Rift but could only do so for a few second before motion sickness kicked in big time. I can't do first person shooters without the same thing happening. I'm wondering what will happen as we move more and more toward these types of immersive HCI's and how folks like me will be affected. As some point will these devices become ubiquitous and this type of reaction be considered a "handicap" because it will require special accommodations in the workplace?

Or, being a new company with no established revenue stream nor war chest full of cash, do you want to see the big boys come in and purchase so much bandwidth for their game that you can't compete? 'Cause the second option is the one that's more likely to happen, regardless of what you want.

A holding company is a thing where you hand an accomplice the goods while the policeman searches you.
