I want an Augmented Reality foldit... so i can run up and down the halls of my local behavioral health hospital, folding proteins . The doctors only allow us in the corridors for a few hours, after the restraints come off for breakfast

Foldit in Virtual Reality (VR) is actually a really interesting prospect that I've thought about.

The game is very reliant on 3D sculpting and to have free range of movement via your headset as the camera and your tools loaded into the VR hand tools sounds extremely intuitive for this game. Dare I say it might be better than hand sculpting on keyboard and mouse?
