How sick of Pi's VR hype are you?

Yucky. Better positional tracking is the big thing making me want a pc headset. Inside out tracking is the future but needs more work.

Kinda ugly. Don't see why it'd improve tracking either.

I'm really hoping for something like Oculus touch or Valve Knuckles.  I'm mostly excited that there is still something going on.  

The pictures make it look like there is a hoop with 3 points (I'm guessing of light for tracking).

Rick and Morty VR is great, but I wish they focused more on breadth instead of depth.  

Like they did some awesome stuff with the combining stuff.  You can spend hours just combining random stuff to make new stuff.  

But I'd prefer if they spent that time giving the player more things to do.  

I also would like a bigger room to play in.

So im curious to see when Valve shows off their VR games.  They first talked about them about a year and a half ago.  

In the next year aand a half, I figure that we ought to hear about at least one of them.

How much time and money do you think valve is investing? Might be smaller teams working on them that need more time.

I don't know very much about Valves structure.  
Could be small teams.

That would be awesome. I hope to buy a pc headset for Christmas so more info better start leaking out! ::)

According to our independent sources this is in fact a Valve HMD. We've also heard the field of view will be 135 degrees with the Vive Pro resolution and it should come bundled with Knuckles controllers as well as a Half-Life based VR game.Click to expand...
An interesting tidbit is the dual cameras on the front in addition to the usual lighthouse markers. Could this allow for both outside-in and inside-out tracking?

 As for the voracity of the rumored Half-Life VR game...
