    Indeed. I have an Oculus Rift and VR and AR set up. But the MS society cannot send me this program.
    And my source one VR industry said there are no good ones available : seems like a good business opportunity to me…

    You should be able to watch VR YouTube videos on your Oculus. Like this one:

    Am also thinking about the leg part of the Wetsuite.
    Example, When I put on my socks, usually my foot spasms from it.

    So, I realize that putting on a long Wetsuite might be impossible, much worse than sox.

    I know I have an old flat lock Roxy suite (my first!) that has a zipper from the ankle to about 4 inches above it on the side of the leg.

    So I am wondering, if I get a good seamstress, if I put the zipper on up to just below teh knee, if it woul let too much cold water in?
    Opinion?

    I think the zipper is a good idea. You may have to sacrifice some warmth for function Betty, if your getting spasms from sox I can't imagine the tightness of a wetsuit. The only other thing I could think of would be to slice the suit up the side of the leg and glue or sew Velcro straps, sort of like on your leash that attaches to your leash cord, something thin like that, that you can close up the leg and adjust the tightness.
    Hopefully you get out soon!!!

    Thanks Manik—- Velcro could do the trick.
    My non surf friends are mystified as to the lengths I would go to to get back in the ocean.. but then I am mystified by the lengths some go to to put on makeup , polish nails and dye hair to look younger :)
