How sick of Pi's VR hype are you?

Go Down

That looks incredible. Any catch?
This article is the first I've heard of them.

Just from the article, I wonder if they actually have a single headset that is doing all of that, or if they have a few technologies working, but not at the same time yet.  

There are a bunch of really exciting technologies for VR and AR, that seem to be just a year or two away.  Maybe this is the year that AR finally gets good.

HTC Cosmos is taking it's place.

-2880x1700 resolution
-RGB display

-support lighthouse tracking with add on (for headset, not for controllers)

Your post was clickbait!

I thought you meant HTC was leaving the VR market completely haha.

I have learned a lot about VR in the past 4 years.  It was kind of fun looking at some older posts in here.  Particularly seeing the stuff that I was wrong about.

I don't think so.  ::)

Nah, VR is pretty much HTC's bread and butter right now.  They sold most of their phone business to Google.  VR is pretty much most of what they do...

Just bought a Google Cardboard thing.  It was a dollar.  

Not planning to actually use it with my phone, but I'm hoping to be able to mess around with it.  

It has these adjustable lenses on both sides, so they can get pushed towards the eyes or left and right.  Also has earbuds in it.  

Would be cool to make or get something to track it, and put some kind of display in it.

Oculus Quest will support PC games later this year.

Quest also getting finger tracking next year.  

Stormland coming November 14th.  

Facebook showed a smaller VR headset with varifocal lenses, without moving the screen.  Much smaller, yet supports larger fov than quest.  Says not to expect this headset until after 2022.

Are the PC games running on the headset or streamed? I didn't think it had that much power.

Sweet about varifocal lenses. That's my biggest desire right now.

Running using a USB C plug in.

They're really pushing the Quest as the big VR platform.  Also bring Go support to the Quest.

Oculus Quest is "by far" Facebook's most retentive hardware. The Oculus Rift S, however, has already surpassed the original Rift in terms of retention.

Picture doesn't quite make sense with the description.  
1320, 1330 and 1410 are supposed to be cameras.  Doesn't really make sense with where the lines are going.

1730 on the controller is also a camera.

Smartphone VR is dead...

What happened?
-GearVR is done.  Carmack gave a eulogy.  
-Google also dropped support.
