My comparison film camera vs digital was not intended in the technical sence, more in a sence as to how difficult it is to predict technical developments and what the impact on the public is going to be. 30 years ago experts predicted home computers would only have a limited interest with the public. As to how we watch TV: untill not too long ago one had to consult a TV guide, shows were presented on a linear scale. Now Video On Demand services have changed that. E.g. I missed Homeland entirely, thanks to Netflix I can see the whole series in a row.
I expect more fom the Oculus than I did from 3D TV's. Yes, you need to put on glasses. But the 3D sensation, even when the viewing point is fixed to "straight ahead" will be overwhelming. I believe Oculus can mean the same fore "portable 3D movie's" as the Sony Walkman did for music (there was no such thing as real portable HiFi stereo listening equipment up untill Sony introduced the Walkman! iPad took that portable music experience to the next level. I might be wrong here, but I see myself enjoying 3D Blockbusters in my hotel room when I'm on the road for work. And I guess I wont be unique..
