meh.... Oculus Rift Virtual Blinders™... WTF?! Where's the peripheral vision?

Virtual reality smerchual reality!!! My initial reaction when I first saw one of these a year or two ago was WTF?! Where are the curved screens offering peripheral vision?! Then I thought, no worries, these are still in the prototype stage so the consumer version will obviously include it. Now we finally see the consumer offering and it's still a huge fugly flat-screen monstrosity that looks straight out of the 1980s or 1990s. Even a built-in head tracker can't overcome the sensation that you're exploring your virtual world with blinders on.

Where's the double quadruple facepalm icon?
