"Wireless Valve Index VR headsets could be on the way, if a recently granted patent in the US is anything to go by. The document details both a standalone device — like the Oculus Quest 2 — as well as a wireless version that would connect to an external device such as a PC."...
Hey folks. I just purchased the Valve index, and my PC room is too small so I am running a 15 foot extension out to my living room.
I would like to have my desktop display the VR view onto my TV in there so people can see what the person in VR is viewing.
Does anyone have any advice on how to...
Doesn't address the stuttering when using monitoring tools (I had a lot of issues with RGB software services causing...
Might as well start an owners thread since there is not one yet. I have used my Quest 2 a little bit for now and here are my impressions coming from CV1.
First, the image is absolutely beautiful. There is still just a hint of SDE but it is equivalent to what you see in 27" 1080p monitor. Like...
Didn't see a thread for this so I figured I would start one. Others can post similar articles as well if desired.
Seems like the 3080 is on top in most tests, trading blows in others.
2,160 × 2,160 (4.6MP) per-eye resolution at 90Hz + 2 hand controllers + 1 hip tracker?
This headset set looks great but at $450... It looks too good to be true.
It is getting a bit panned on reviews.
So how is the VR? Is it an improvement? I am thinking it should be as it would have been designed from the ground up? No?
I personally found PC2 very good with VR. A really good piece of software IMO.
Recently purchased a pair of the WidmoVR prescription lens inserts and it's like a brand new system. I thought that since I was near-sighted that it wouldn't really affect me much, but the different is incredibly significant. Took a shot in the dark and these things are AMAZING. If you need...
And what defines a "flawless" experience?
Visuals? Hand controls? Foot controls? Tactile force-feedback?
What will be the breaking point of when VR becomes better than reality?
What features would you like to see improved, besides visual clarity?
And what features don't exist yet that should...
HP has just launched a new VR headset developed in conjunction with Microsoft and Valve. The headset sports a resolution of 2160x2160 per eye on 2" x 2.89" LCD screens with a refresh rate of 90 Hz. It promises "infinite" tracking area with 4 cameras in the headset. IPD adjustment is...
With some down time on my hands I've been looking at getting a VR set. Knowing I have a big ol' noggin I measured my IPD (inter pupil distance) with a ruler and a mirror and got a 75mm.
Seems that falls well above most of the given IPD for headsets.
Anyone with a high IPD using a headset to...
I'm pretty happy with my Lenovo Explorer, especially with the limited VR gaming I do.
That said my main complaint with it is how tiny the "sweet spot" is when positioning the HMD. a centimeter in any direction causes everything to go pretty blurry. I don't have the funds for an Index, but is...
Came across these VR videos of vintage F1 in the Early Access release of Automobilista 2, and holy hell this is the best thing I've ever seen (aside from the lens flare :banghead:). The EA was just released a couple weeks ago. The first game flew under my radar, but this definitely has my...
Selling my quest - probably has about 1ish hour of use as I never got around to it. Pretty much like new - charger etc.. never unpacked. Comes with original box and all the accessories. Not trying to turn a profit here - this is just what I paid for it and realized I don't need it...
I know this is likely to be ancient news to most, but I don't have any friends who VR and wanted to share. For whatever reason, I held off a long time on buying Beat Saber. I think I was harboring some kind of grudge against it for being such a simple, "casual" game. A couple days ago, I finally...
Humble currently has a fantastic bundle chock-full of VR's best games...the first payment tier starts at $1 and gets you Cosmic Trip and Smashbox Arena, both of which have 'Very Positive' user reviews on Steam...the next tier gets you Gorn, Budget Cuts, and Space Pirate Trainer...lastly, there's...

Haven't picked this up yet, but may check it out with my Boneworks refund money. A bit more expensive, but apparently a lot more "game" than Boneworks from what I've heard.
Anyone have any experience with this one? It's getting some pretty rave reviews.
From the information I've been able to find there is a suggestion that VR does have some more scaling with core count relative to conventional gaming. Well at least in terms of benefiting more from having >4c/8t more so than conventional gaming.
What I'm unable to find is more direct...
So I've had a 2017 era Rift kit sitting unopened in the box for over a year now. This is the version immediately previous to the Rift S and Quest releases.
What games or apps are must haves or must experience in your opinion?
Keep in kind that I can't do S or Quest exclusive titles - they...
A long time coming, and still missed the mark. Not at least matching the Index is a massive mistake. Will help the used market buyers at least!
My B-Day is coming up and I want to make myself a present. Whatever in $500-700 range should be ok, IF it's actually worth it.
I did a quick Google search, and it doesn't look like theres very many "good" VR games out there.. i'm talking truly AAA titles like Fallout 4 or Resident Evil 7.
Having an issue where my oculus quest can only see my chromecast ultra if its on my 2.4ghz channel of my router, and not if i set everything up on my 5ghz channel... Anyone else experience this? I am able to see the chromecast ultra and cast youtube from my phone on the 5ghz channel though...
users can now open a browser and flip Facebook the bird
Shame there isn't a launch game, but could be they sorta cracked the code earlier than expected. Does this put Knuckles to shame, will we always want a controller for that tactile feel or haptics? I can't imagine gun hand gestures to be...
Half-Life: Alyx is the next VR game from Valve, to be announced next month, releases in March 2020
