Default Re: John carmack on next game engine.. cool stuff.

I think people can become completely immersed in a game if it makes them forget they're sitting in front of a computer monitor and keyboard regardless of the graphics. I would like to see one day wide acceptance of head mounted displays (the ones with a mini monitor for each eye) and head tracking units. Would be interest if id's next engine natively supports those devices such that the person can use his head for freelook without affecting the crosshair and keyboard/mouse for body position and crosshair movement. Maybe then input devices with gyroscopes will take off since you can hold them in the air like a real gun. Now that would be interesting, a Logitech mouse that looks like a gun.
