Today my silicone Quest 2 cover showed up. It fits the standard interface well and feels alright. I’ll test it a bit later.

I was using that but ended up getting the new VR Cover facial interface. It's way better and feels more comfortable. It's more expensive than most but I've tried a some of the others and the VR Cover was just better. It has the vents to help with fogging as well.

htc vive go BRRRRRRRR
Nice! The Vive is still a good HMD.

Got that kit free from Oculus. Gone back to “stock+silicone+my Terry covers
my covers but yeah, silicone over that. Actually I have the silicone for yours too but you could ONLY use the silicone wouldn’t cover the actual pads

Yeah, I got the free one too. It's not bad but I prefer my VR Cover.

I said "good".. lol I didn't say it was great or the best. It's better than not having VR at all. Plus, you can build off of that with other HMD's that use lighthouse tracking like the Index, Pimax HMD's, etc.

I guess, but it is a downer when you can count how many pixels your friend is made up of.

Too right!

SteamVR tracking is really quite good. Having the underlying tech even with the original Vive VR HMD is a boon and a great position for upgrading HMD’s in the future. While the original Oculus sensor tracking wasn’t quite as robust it was still fairly good once setup properly. Too bad Oculus abandoned it completely for inside out tracking that overall doesn't perform quite as well.
