VR headsets close to reality as Google Wear arrives for your wrist

Morpheus: the god of dreams, a faintly annoying character in The Matrix and soon, something you strap to your face. We're talking about Sony's Project Morpheus, a VR headset for the PS4 that might just change gaming forever. It's a bit rough, says Alex Roth, and there's no sign of a price tag as yet, but the 1080p display has a lot of potential.

As for Oculus Rift, it's tantalisingly close to being A Thing You Can Buy. We've had a go on one of the latest developer kit, and we reckon it's "the coolest product in the world right now, and it gets better every time we see it." Rumours suggest a Christmas 2014 launch. We've sent our letters to Santa already.

Google had some news for us this week too. The Chromecast TV streamer has hit the UK, and Patrick Goss was quick to put it through its paces. That's not all. Google also took the wraps off Android Wear, its version of Android for smartwatches and other wearable devices.

If Samsung's gear-related tomfoolery had convinced you that smartwatches are ugly, think again. The incoming Moto 360 is a genuinely pretty watch that just happens to do the Google Now stuff too. We won't have to wait long to find out more: as Swider says, we can "expect to hear more about Android Wear and see the unveiling of the first Wear apps at the Google IO conference in June." More details will be "on hand", so that's one to, ahem, watch.

The new iPhone 5C is a really bad buy
Imagine. You're buying something exciting and expensive. The sales person makes you an offer. You can have 1/8 off the sticker price if you agree to just one thing: from time to time, the sales person would come round to your house and punch you in the face.  The new iPhones and iPads are a bit like that.

With a metal body, full HD display and decent innards the G Pad 8.3 is strongest rival to the iPad mini 2. While battery life could be better, LG's tablet doesn't let the side down.

Should Twitter drop the @ sign?
@Cat_E_Ellis That's going to really mess up browser add-ons like Twitbin that don't show conversation threads.
@OleIChristensen Sounds like a terrible joke!.
@esmith_SA Let's hope this is an early April Fool's joke.
