Trimersion: Virtual Reality is now... a reality?

Well, it seems the technology is already mature and now is as a good time as ever to release a product like the Trimersion: a combination Head-mounted display and a "gun" controller" which then allows its users to play First-Person Shooters (FPS) and immerse themselves fully in the games virtual environment.

But reading about how head-mounted displays affect its users (reports of nausea, dizziness and even vertigo is not unusual) Trimersion must be using a different approach in their displays to avoid such adverse effects. Costing $395 (approximately Php 20,000) the Trimersion costs as much as a games console.

If given a chance,would I get one? Well, the way it makes the models look like a total dork, I think I'll pass...
