Fun fact. Oculus Rift DK2 uses a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 screen. Literally purposed for the mobile phone, it still has button and camera holes, covered up by plastic.
I'm not fussed, as long as it make the consumer model cheaper!

http://techcrunch.com/2014/07/31/oculus-rift-dk2-gets-torn-apart-revealing-its-samsung-innards/
yea, I seen that some where the other day. That's a lot better screen that the one they used in DK1. It's a 1080p screen so there is still room for improvement. Some people I heard are still feeling sick after playing it, but that number has drop a lot over DK1. I heard the final product may have a 1440p screen which should be amazing.

You get used to it, the same shit happened with Track IR it can make people sick until they get used to it.

Any thing like the Occulus Rift always gets my attention and believe there is so much fun to be had, how ever handhelds like the DS screw people's eye's up in more than one way and that's got me thinking how this is going effect people's eye's over time.

Yea, they are calling it "Virtual Legs". e.g. It will take some time to get your virtual legs.

@Frick - I haven't read that yet, but it's on my list to do.. hehehe

count me in ! please there Mindweaver(op)

Had mine (DK2) 11 days, and still messing with it, played Elite mostly with it, most demos made me instant sick but for some strange reason im ok with Elite, keep getting silly cockpit judder though which kind of trash's the game, wish they would implement 0.4.2 sdk into elite and make it direct because its such class what they have done, i remember it in 1984 on the acorn BBC comp.

now the devs lark might take a while I've been very rusty with code past 30 years, done some VB and a bit of C in past 10 yrs but i did shine at basic in the 80's(peek&poke). Been to busy fixing hardware the late.

Elite is so fkn coool !

did the chromatic aberration hex edit with elite last night and it does look better. (elite.exe)
they could of put better lenses in them though..

count me in !

same name on vrforums..

@Mindweaver and other club members, what is your thought on other hardware. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2091603040/totem-the-premium-full-featured-virtual-reality-he

These totem guys look to beat the competition with more features and broader support but oculus was there first.

I've seen these and I'm glad they started a Kickstarter. The only thing I thinks going to hurt them is the steep buy in price.. $440 for a Dev kit. I hope they do well, but for me I can't justify the price for the Dev kit. The plus, side is they support a lot of platforms. :toast:

Dam they went up in price ?, last time i looked they were $400 although still expensive and still will not bother at that price and hate to think if these will screw people's eyes up like the DS hand held do.

I think the winner for VR will be who gets the most game support. The rift seems to have the most support therefore why would you purchase a different VR system at this time?

Yea, they didn't get close to funding the Kickstarter. I don't see anyone spending 100 dollars more for this over a DK2. Hopefully we will see Consumer models early next year.

I do as well.

I purchased a Freefly VR hmd for my phone last week on a Amazon lighting deal for $65. Here is my take on the HMD if anyone is interested in buying it. I don't like how you load your phone into the HMD. You have to open an app that takes forever to get to the part to align your phone. The whole unit feels like it's too narrow. The strip around your face is nice looking, but it's to hard and takes you out of the experience (e.g. Think about a car with leather seats and you want to move over a little and you are wearing shorts, but your tail is stuck to the set and you have to pull it off the sit and then adjust.. lol). The strap is nice and the lenses are nice. If I press the HMD to my face and really push my face into it.. It's really nice, but that's impossible to do with the strap, because I've adjusted it as tight as it will go.. and I have a big head.

Also, if you look at the 4x adjustments to hold the phone, one leg always covers the head phone port. I can barely adjust it enough to hold the phone and use the head phone port which makes the adjustment useless and it kind of twists the phone. I would suggest to hold out for something else and just pick up a Google Cardboard v2.0 for $19.99 instead. I bought mine from I AM CARDBOARD.

Well guys I went ahead and bit the bullet and pre ordered the Oculus Rift CV1, but ship date looks to be around June. Feb 29th the HTC Vive will go on pre order and hopefully it will be around the same price with controllers. If so then I'm going to cancel my rift CV1 order, and get the Vive more than likely. The Rift CV1 is pretty steep at $599, but it comes with an Xbox one controller (I don't need), Head phones (I don't need), a DAC for the headphones (I don't need), a nice carrying case (I don't need), 2x games "Lucky's Tale" and "EVE: Valkyrie", and last but not least another small controller for watching movies and other video content. We still don't know what's going to ship with the Vive, but I believe HTC will have to stay close to the $599 price.. Only because everyone had a fit over the price of the Rift CV1. HTC is counting on this to save their company. I guess we will see.
