Proposing new "groups"[edit]

Under the section or "group" as denoted by the wikicode: Immersive devices has several categories.

I believe these could be retitled into two categories and possibly a third category: "Immersive Personal devices" & "Immersive Room devices" ... possible "Discontinued or Historical devices"

Membership would look like this ...

Google Cardboard | HTC Vive | Oculus Rift | Samsung Gear VR | Project Morpheus

AlloSphere | Cave* | TreadPort

Sensorama | Virtual Boy | Famicom 3D System | Sword of Damocles | Sega VR Virtuality | Cave

Notably, "Cave" as a system is probably discontinued (needs citation) and would move to historical. Does "history" belong as a subcategory with Personal & Room style devices? IamM1rv (talk) 16:31, 6 March 2015 (UTC) IamM1rv (talk) 18:39, 9 March 2015 (UTC)

The Cave systems exist in academia, for sure. Minnesota Interactive Visualization Lab et al Runner1928 (talk) 02:05, 7 March 2015 (UTC)
Really sweet! Thanks! What do you think about the subcategories - do you believe that Personal / Room / History are all directly related and belong in the same line? IamM1rv (talk) 18:39, 9 March 2015 (UTC)
