Having just bought a Quest 2 , I can see perhaps a media device that would weigh 1/3 as much for watching a movie is what you might want. But as far as I can tell, most 3d VR content is like five minutes. Also, most of my head weariness has been from playing WW1 Fighters, where I’m constantly whipping my head up and/or behind me (really appreciating my old TrackIR rotation multiplier curve now, ha)… otherwise it’s not so bad. Maybe boxing would be tiring as well. But an hour of ping pong was fine since you mostly just look forward, and other games are more sedate and less frantic on the head movements.
I love the Quest, by the way. I thought I’d be put off by the simple graphics, but the immersion factor really makes up for it. Playing Onward, I guess I wish I’d see grass on the ground like every game past 2007, but whatever. And a game like Star Wars Vader trilogy, where they’ve spent more time on character animations, textures, and the environment is more tech, it’s pretty convincing.
What a great toy. I’ve only let my kids (4 and 8) dabble in the Quill Theatre, since it’s really hard to tell a four year old where to go and do when you can’t see what they’re seeing, but they love it too. The little guy keeps fogging up the glasses though since his face is so small and his nose winds up in the goggles!
