ITRL? Racecars and B*@t Plugs

It is an incredibly exciting time for VR. It seems that every week there is a new innovation or advancement and best of all, apps are turning up left and right. Luckily for us we have the 6dof to spot them.  

This week on ITRL we look at some of the latest apps that are toping the VR charts and discuss the dreaded delay in GFX card technology.

Since the inception of the latest VR rush we have all been looking for a suitable input device. As it seems Oculus may have found their golden nugget.

It was about 6 weeks ago when Nic had endured the loss of his beloved DK2 after just 5 days of use. This loss lead to a deprivation of VRs sweet taste. But alas did the replacement not only arrive for Nic, Brandon too has finally just recieved his DK2. 

Today on the show the gents discuss what few games and demos they have had the chance to get into. Along with another shallow look at Magic Leap.

ITRL? Mysterious Magic Leap

Mysteries are all fine and dandy but when you're dealing with a crowd of ravenous VR heads you might think twice.

ITRL? With Reverend Kyle!

The inception of the pureVR podcast was no mistake. There were several inspirating factors. From the Oculus Rift to the Hydra but none were as influential as the Rev VR podcast. Today on the show we are happy to invite Reverend Kyle, creator and host of the Rev VR podcast on the show. Rev talks about his personal endeavors in VR and also his trip to Oculus Connect.

Is This Real Life? The VR Naysayers

Virtual Reality was a medium that was first promised over 20 years ago. It came and went, crashing in a fiery mess. Now that we stand on the cusp of the second arrival of virtual reality it is no surprise that naysayers will be there to tell us that history will repeat itself.


Today on the show Edmund Ward of Virtual Reality Reviewer joins us to talk about a particularly hot article and a few other news pieces.
