Hi guys. I stumbled across this thread and I gotta say, it's a very interesting and fascinating discussion! As a VR user, I was quite surprised to learn about these "dedicated movie watching" headsets, so to speak. I was completely oblivious to the Cinera, the Goovis G2, and the LUCI Immerse until reading this thread. I gotta say, I'm intrigued by all of them, namely the LUCI immerse but it seems that one isn't out until sometime in August.
Am I correct in assuming these are not full VR HMDs? And are designed with viewing 2D or 3D movies in mind? If so, this could pose a big problem. Since these are not full VR units, I assume they wouldn't be compatible with VR applications like Bigscreen Beta. Bigscreen Beta is a VR app that allows you to view movies and other 2D content in a fully immersive VR environment, and not only alone, but with others, sharing the same environment as yourself. It's pretty awesome and in my opinion, if it picks up steam could seriously pose a threat to actual movie theaters some time in the future. It's that good!
The Cinera appears to be the headset that offers the highest resolution between the three and is the one I'm sorta interested in, but without full VR support I don't think it would work with Bigscreen Beta, unfortunately. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. Otherwise I may decide to go with the new HP Reverb, which by all accounts looks AMAZING! True 4K VR HMD with 114º FOV and is out next month.
So I guess we'll see how all this play out
