    Oculus Rift Full Room Scale Setup

    So when I got into VR I made a bad assumption. I thought I'd be more into seated VR games than room scale stuff. Once I got touch I realized how awesome full room scale games could really be. So I did the only thing I could do, I added [H]ardware until the Rift did room scale :) Heres is what I...

    Oculus Touch price drop feels like I have been scammed...

    I don't normally like to make a big deal out of things, but I am truly concerned about what happened with the Oculus touch price. How can a company just drop the price on a product by 50% three months after release? I pre-ordered my touch and got it mid December. Within a few months, they...

    Gear VR: Intriguing, exciting, disappointing, expensive, immature?

    Click-bait title, maybe, but it's how I'm feeling after about 2 hours screwing around with a Samsung Gear VR and a Galaxy S7 Edge. Mind you this is the original model which I found on clearance locally for $25; at that price I figured why not? The S7 Edge isn't on the officially supported list...

    This Was The Year Of VR, Until AR Stole It

    Why does it always have to be one or the other? It's not like AR, as cool as the technology is, stole any of VR's thunder this year, or vice versa. In fact, I think both will coexist just fine because they are clearly different products targeting different markets. VR, AR, MR and every other...

    Returned my oculus

    Two reasons I returned my Oculus to the store. 1. It just feels too virgin and there is not enough mainstream support to justify owning this $600.00 system. 2. The VR is nice but its making me motion sick. I have regret in returning it but in time if more support is available and more...
