Have not been following the VR helmets since some of them are stupid, and other just cost too much... I do not like not being able to see my wheel.
Maybe they already do this, but;
The VR Helmets will need a web cam, built into them, so you can see through them, or a way to flip the monitors away.
VR will need a button on your hand, to quickly and easily flip between, full VR mode, Hybrid/Augmented Reality, and Full Reality.
Hybrid would allow you to see people next to you and still see the action on screen. This would be done by displaying them on top of each other, transparency style, or Picture in Picture.
If they do this and cost less then a high end monitor, I might consider using it.
