How sick of Pi's VR hype are you?

Go Down

VR is starting to get standardized.

Rift S announced.

Quote
The result is a new VR device that is more comfortable, sports 2560 x 1440 resolution (or 1280 x 1440 per eye), and features the same inside-out tracking system that will ship on Oculus' upcoming standalone Quest headset, which the company calls Oculus Insight. That way, you won't need cumbersome cameras to enable full-body movement
Makes it lower res than the quest .

quest is my next VR purchase.  Hoping to only get wireless VR from here on out.  Hoping for PSVR 2 wireless. At least the headset.  Don't care if there are some extra wires, but don't want wires going to the headset.

Sony made a patent that shows a wireless PSVR.  No guarantees, but PSVR 2 will definitely be a step up over Rift S.

Valve talks about an experimental super bright screen.  "Fire hazard bright". 

Says it makes every other headset disappointing. 

A little after 14 min.

Have you been using your Rift much?  
And is there a game type you wish for in VR?

I've used it a lot for development but nothing outside that recently.

Locomotion issues make a lot of my "dream" vr games unrealistic at the moment. Instead right now I really like small highly detailed vr spaces. I loved the rift demo in the rv.

That's fair.

But what would you like?  :D

Kind of a silly thing, but you should try out Coco.  It's free, but it's pretty neat.

quest is up for preorder to release on may 21.  

Got mine preordered and ready!

Oculus quest is amazing!  So nice being untethered.  Controller tracking is great

So I've been putting some time into Sairento.

And it's weird.  
It's super fast paced.  I don't actually get very motion sick from it (a little, but not much), I get more sick with Minecraft.  But it's fast paced, and it feels half good, half awkward.  

I really love moving around.  It's like a mix between teleportation and artificial locomotion.  You point to a location and you do a high speed motion there.  The bad part is while trying to attack, you often miss because of how fast you move. Which doesn't feel great.  

It takes away from immersion, but it's fun as heck jumping.

This does a lot of stuff well that I expected to suck.

I actually got an ad for it on Facebook. Kind of want it

I saw this earlier.  

I've been saying for a while, that the Quest is the closest thing VR has to a mainstream device.
