will Oculus drift work for virtual tours?

Now that it works with Kolor eyes, can we expect it to work for virtual tours too?

DK2 may be available to order, it still is a development kit. I can understand people wanting the technology to be developped, but why not rush and panic about the compatibility when it's actually available for consumers instead?

(PS: not that I'm saying that you're rushing or panicking, but it seems that it's a popular demand and it kind of baffles me in general... It's like as if I was working on creating the absolute perfect jam jar, and while I was busy sorting out the design and whatnot, people are asking if I've prepared a lid yet so they can fill it with jam. Why can't I finish the jar first?)


(PPS: My metaphors are strange, I know)

I get confused with all this new technology in this area..

I viewed this video, which I can see great value if the cameras were set on a Stage of a concert or inside a dangerous environment etc. Where the person with the Oculas could be immersed into the stage/scene as if they were really there.. I can also see this working from anywhere in the world where you can hook into the live feed..

Also, 3D panos are also currently available.. and spilt screens in a Tour for the next PTP release as I understand is also coming..

Seems this technology is going in leaps and bounds. I feel its great that Kolor is in the middle of it all.. It can only be good for those that love this technology..
