I've heard Carmack commented on the issue of sensors and algorithms saying that in some cases the sensors we have are already good enough and it takes a clever algorithm to sift through the noise, or something along those lines.
So if a screen can detect finger motion, then eyeball motion is just a quantitative jump away, not a qualitative one.
Then again maybe it's easier to use an optical system like the above video, I can't say which solution is more likely, but I think it'll definitely be feasible very soon.

Palmer strikes me as a mad scientist type who probably has tons of stuff going on in "the lab" and even more in his head. It'd be cool if he started a regular podcast or something talking about potential ways to develop VR.

the dll source to see where to change the code for a single monoscopic view
that fills a rotated screen, moved back double the eye-to-panel distance.
I will construct and paper-based enclosure to see how it wears (once I get rift in 2 months).
I hope the image warping fov cone stays the same, no need to fiddle with the lenses.
So then with this 'one eyed git' hack we will see directly 4x smaller pixels at same latency.
As I've said before this hardware for a 4x pixel density (panel + video box) stereoscopic
viewing experience is already at the factory and could be packaged as an add-on this month,
if oculus thinks this might work, and is willing to let hackers play down a different route.

Any results with your ipad screens geekmaster?

From what I've seen, if it can be believed, this panel would be a Huge improvement over the current.
