It really is... It's not like you are signing into facebook. You can even block everyone from see you on fb. It's already set this way by default. You have to actually turn on let your fb friends see you.


Nice! Tell us how long the battery last with the new strap.


This is without the elite + battery version. Still same OG battery about 2hrs lol

Aww yeah i just notice the width of the back of it. The battery version is bigger on the back. I do see most people that have the battery one have said to just get a 10000mah battery pack. The usb-c battery pack I posted with PD works amazing. I was going to by an extra one to switch out but I don't even need too.

@xkm1948 I bought an ax210 wifi pci-e adapter and wow! This thing is fast! Thanks for the heads up on the ax210, I was really close to buying that ax200 adapter. I tried out Virtual Desktop last night and it was noticeably better. Wireless PCVR is amazing. I can't wait for Quest 2 to get official support from Oculus. Guy Godin has already said he's not using it to its full potential. He isn't taking advantage of wifi 6 atm and is only using 150mbps .

I assume you also got a new wifi6e router? Set your PC to communicate with router only on the 6GHz band would be blazing fast haha.

Too bad Quest 2 does not support wifi6e. 6GHz band would be really good when you stream your PCVR right over to Quest 2. And yeah, Oculus really need to work on that official wireless Link. But from my point of view, they have little monetary incentive to do so. They want to lock folks into Quest store. If PCVR wireless becomes an option and super stable, then lots of folks gonna flock over to SteamVR instead. I dont think Facebook want that.

On the other front, Next gen Valve HMD with lighthouse tracking and wireless streaming over wifi6e might bring me back to light house based HMD. For long Beat Saber session, lighthouse tracking is still unmatched in accuracy. Also less camera means way less power draw.

Cannot believe we are already into 3rd panel of this meme now If counting Half Life Alyx and other good VR games, we may even be panel 4 already haha

I'm not using a wifi 6 router. I'm currently using an Orbit RBR40 Mesh system. I think FB is looking to create a wireless adapter to tap into Steam's user base. They would be crazy not to use that reach. I mean I use steam mostly but I have bought stuff off of the Oculus store as well. You have to look at the big picture. John is already pushing it because he can see the impact and the potential growth.

I really don't think Valve's next HMD will use lighthouse tracking. Now when I say next HMD I'm not talking about the HMD refresh that a lot are expecting to happen this year. I bet all of the Linux SteamOS work that they have done was mainly to do exactly what FB is doing and offer a self-contained AIO VR HMD that is hybrid and can wirelessly connect to pc.

I'm surprised they haven't offered an aio system that does PC, VR gaming. A package deal that's just a Steam Machine with a full Index kit. I'm going way out on a limb on this but looking at their past work it would make since to offer this setup to a non-pc gaming person. Who knows what we would have right now from Valve if COVID didn't happen.

I dont know. After playing back and forth with OG Vive and Quest 2, I am a bit torn. I do not want to give up the precision tracking using lighthouse. Camera based are good, but definitely still lacks behind light house. I am sensitive to motion jittering. On Vive I rarely experienced that. On Quest2 from time to time there are always those micro stuttering when I am taking the controllers to the edge of HMD camera detection.

What I wanna see is a powerful decoder sit on a wireless HMD tracked with lighthouse. I dont need the HMD to do computation by itself at least for me. That computation also will add additional power draw and cost.


Just a wireless decoder running on fastest wifi protocol, big battery, good visuals, light house tracking. That is just my dream lol

The tracking on the Vive is better but the screen on the Rift S and Quest 2 are so good it's a none issue for me. I'm not getting the motion jitter you are talking about. The only issue I have is if the room is too dim-lit. There is better IMU's that can track behind your back. I'd be surprised if Valve isn't working on inside-out tracking for future VR HMD's.
