I haven’t tried VR at length – just small experiments so far.
I did participate in a few full body VR experiments in the early 1990s. In New York City they had some VR equipment and for $10 you could spend 15-20 minutes battling with someone else. It pushed you side to side, would throw you in the air if you got punched out – it was basically boxing on the moon I think.
It was fun.
Tried the “phone up to the face” like in that image above a few times, but not much. I’m very much a keyboard/flat screen guy but I can suspend disbelief if I have to and get into it.
