'Doom 3' in virtual reality: we check out John Carmack's prototype head mounted display

'Doom 3' in virtual reality: we check out John Carmack's prototype head mounted display | The Verge.

Id Software has just announced Doom 3 BFG Edition, a "director's cut" of the 2004 first-person shooter with new missions as well as refined visuals and gameplay mechanics — including a flashlight on the vest so you can have light while you shoot.
John Carmack has been talking about his experiments on his twitter account with this sort of stuff over the past few months, just assuming it would be just a play thing of his.

But, I should have known better. John Carmack's side projects often come out as some pretty cool things, sometimes products (iOS RAGE, for example). To see this working like this is very cool, even if it is a prototype.
