Nintendo going VR

Nintendo representatives were looking at eMagin's Z800 3D Visor, which uses VR technology. The item's resemblance to the ill-fated Virtual Boy is unmistakable, and reports say that Nintendo has already purchased several of the Z800 units and expressed interest in the technology. This news comes courtesy of and other various websites. What is going on?

It seems unlikely that the VR applications of eMagin's visor can be utilized in time to make Revolution's launch, but the fact that Nintendo, as well as other software and hardware makers, is showing such interest in the process could offer a hint about the future of gaming. Can you imagine actually jumping into the mushroom kingdom, or being in Hyrule?!?!?!
