How sick of Pi's VR hype are you?

Go Down

I don't think any of us expected it, but so much money and effort is going into standalone headsets right now.
Yeah.  
So much effort is going toward ease of use more than substantial new features .

Hololens 2 will probably be announced tomorrow. Hopefully it has a lot of improvements so that the device can do high quality visuals.

I already saw impressions! Not meant for consumers. I don't really see this replacing normal screens in most cases. I mean, you have to wear it on your head while the screen isn't touching you.

So this is blurred out, so there's not enough information to tell hardly anything.  

Apparently this was tweeted a while ago by a game developer.  

But some people are suspecting that it is the Valve HMD.  There is another image showing that the side of the headset matches up with the leaked HMD.  

The controllers look a lot like Knuckles.  

Apparently this happened a while ago, but I dont recall hearing about it.  

Apparently this week, Valve fired half of the VR hardware team.

Is valve done with development or is this a bad sign?

Not sure:

Last month, 13 full time employees were let go and a portion of our contractor agreements were terminated. It's an unfortunate part of business, but does not represent any major changes at the company. We thank those affected for their contribution and wish them well in future endeavors.

So Gabe responded to a few questions.  

-The VR games are still being worked on.
-The people let go, were because of a people problem, not a hardware problem.

Apparently it's a big deal for Gabe to answer questions .
