Just wanted to start a discussion about the importance or relevance of the choice you make for your final year project at University, I am a final year student studying for a Bsc(Hons)computer science(Games Development) Degree, and was looking into using the Oculus Rift with the latest version of Unity to basically push myself into a relatively new and growing area of games development.
My concerns and thoughts are as follows:
Just stick to what i know and have learned already and improve on them to produce a higher grade game at the end.
Putting aside the media hype about VR is it a real world choice for graduates to pursue and have a successful career.
Spending a large chunk of my maintenance grant on buying the developers version of Oculus Rift (about £350)and then living off beans for the next 9 months.
