Had mine for about 6 months now and truly love it for Elite Dangerous, wouldn't and couldn't play it any other way. Simply the best for dog-fighting and can wear it for hours ( 4-6 ) with no issues, eyes even feel relaxed when I take it off. Will buy the consumer version with the high-res screens to resolve the screen door affect.

Con: Drinking red wine, hard to with a glass need a straw


Yo ene, what's your handle and which system you at? ;)

(Please tell me you're wanted by Empire)

@Kiral yeah you'll (probably) need crysto's high end computer to get to high frame rates to reduce motion sickness. Also I'm sure I've heard eye tracking hardware already exists..

Eye tracking will be pretty hard if you're wearing goggles. They need to some how get a camera inside the goggles to track your movement.

Enesis that's interesting, it could be mainly because I'm not used to VR and my brain doesn't know how to handle it. I've been reading up on it a bit and the term they use is 'Simulation Sickness' which is essentially the complete opposite of motion sickness.

Look at this fancy cunt with his glass for his goon. Just drink it out of the box like the rest of us.

You could probably rig it up to the oculus so the nozzle is always near your mouth too.

I was thinking about asking the question of how someone who is short sighted and wears glasses would go about wearing this thing but of course the screen in the oculus is so close to your eyes this wouldn't be a problem. That raises the point though that because everything is in focus and the lack of your eyes to need to adjust to focus this must be a major difference between seeing in real life and seeing with the oculus on.

To be more aware of your surroundings would be a possible symptom of getting used to everything being in focus while the oculus is on. Or, does the oculus do anything to require your eyes to need to focus?

The DK2 comes with two lenses, one is for short sighted people I believe. In the future I reckon if you wear glasses you will be able to get lenses which match your prescription.

So think of the Oculus this way. The centre of the screen is in focus, and if you look towards your periphery without moving your head it will be blurry. So in order to actually focus on things you need to keep your eyes straight and move your head in the direction of the thing you want to focus on. This essentially makes your head a single eyeball.
