How sick of Pi's VR hype are you?

Super high res, super bright, super high refresh rate

240 Hz, 5000x4000 resolution, 2 million nits in a tiny 0.6 inch display.  Downside is, no RGB panels yet.  Suppose to be coming soon, though.


About 4 of these per eye, would hit what I often hear is the "resolution" limit of the eye.  And you could easily fit that into a VR headset too.

Consumers have started getting the Valve Index.

Yes, the Index looks and feels a bit better than the Rift S, but really not by much.

WOW. The value proposition is worth mentioning, but that's an insane tl;dr. Rift S is in a different class.
Lol.

Which is true?

I mean the price difference is massive

Probably depends on the individual.  

Some people might not be able to tell 144 hz vs 80 hz.  
Field of view also depends on the individual.  Fov in VR is kinda complicated.
Clarity will definitely be an improvement, but not exactly double.  

Some people might be able to see a huge difference, and others might not, I suspect.

I think a Naruto VR game would be awesome.  

-You could make hand signs and use jutsu that way.

-i also think it'd be cool to have sharingan/Byakugan. Completely change how the world looks.

Facebook is testing a device worn on the wrist that can apparently simulate haptic feedback on the fingers.

Apparently it's reasonably convincing.

Roughly 10% Of Steam VR Users May Be Using Rift S Or Valve Index

A mystery headset or two randomly jumped up to 10% of all PCVR headsets.  
Seems most likely to be Rift S and/or Valve Index.  

That's pretty impressive for less than 2 months.

An awesome thing about PSVR, is using it as a second private screen.  

Wifey gets motion sick with games.  But I can play Bloodborne in the same room as her while she's using the TV to watch some shows.

I think it's one of those *it's the future* things, that it's awesome that Sony put that in.

I really hope PS5 has enough power reserve to put up virtual environments for stuff like this. I love watching 2D content in cozy VR places.
