How sick of Pi's VR hype are you?

Lol.    

"The tracking is even better. It is inside out as opposed to rift's outside in."
Hmmm, that doesn't sound right.  
Yeah it's true hololens is inside out, but neither way is inherently better.

Although hololens doesn't have trackers so no way does it have better tracking.



And I really need to hurry up and get PC VR.

I spent 8 hours today on BigScreen Beta VR  :o
You guys need this if you dont have it already.
乁(Ꝋ ͜ʖꝊ)ㄏ
Don't matter anyways

Haha yep I have it.  

It is amazing how convincing scale and distance are.

I just played crystal rift. I like the concept but the moving is wrong. I can't play it that way.

I can at most play a level a session
  Think I'm on like 8 now.

How long till wireless PC VR do you think?

And how long till motion tracked GearVR?


I think whichever is first will be pretty successful.

The latter should be much sooner.  

The former seems a bit challenging.  Pushing a high resolution at a high frame rate reliably seems hazardous.

Headset could handle asynchronous timewarp instead of the PC. Would help a ton when the occasional hiccup happens.


GearVR with tracking hopefully comes soon. It's the one thing that makes GearVR feel like trash relatively.

I still think even in that case, GearVR with tracking is still much sooner.  
You can probably make something in your house to give GearVR actual tracking, so I can't imagine it would be that far off.

Samsung is working on a standalone wireless VR headset | VG247

But maybe the latter isn't that far off.

---------------------------
Honestly it astounds me all the time just the list of everyone who is working on VR.
It's like every big company (Nvidia, AMD, Samsung, Google, Sony, Facebook/Oculus, etc) is working on VR, plus there's gotta be like 30,000 tiny-you've-never-heard-of-this-company companies also working on VR.  There's also tons of VR software being researched.  It is beyond incredible to me.  
--------------------------
On another note, it also astounds me just how clueless a lot of people still are about what VR is, and what it does.  

"VR isnt actually 3D. It's using head movement to create a 360 degree view."
I literally read this.  How does someone not get this?  How do you last 5 min on a PSVR subreddit, and not understand this.  :P

Thats what I am waiting for. I hate all these wires coming off the DK2, and it seems like a headset that wireless streams from your PC wouldn't be that challenging, but I really don't know.

I can't tell if this is a scam, but it seems to be.

Yeah that looks sketchy. No mention of batteries yet it'd need huge ones.

Hot jam.  :o
A lot quicker than I was expecting.  
This should be good for the headset.

Really really good for OR that they've got through the backlog before PSVR releases. That thing will be super limited supply so maybe they'll be able to steal some customers. Same goes for Vive.
