If technological progress was based on the cartoon show 'The Jetsons,' then the human race is way behind schedule. Civilians are taking the matter of technological progress into their own hands, with virtual reality gaming on top of that list.
This DIY virtual reality gaming headset by Stefan Welker showcases how a person doesn't have to spend hundreds of dollars or wait 50 years for a cheap virtual reality headset to acquire an immersive gaming experience.
One could spend hours inside their own virtual bubble with this immersive gamer gear. Imagine playing Angry Birds while wearing this head gear -- that would cause headaches, but result in hours of fun. The homemade gamer accessory only works with the open source Quake 2 engine and is only playable on an Android Smartphone.
