    Well for whatever reason my tracking ( two sensors ) in my Rift has always been excellent.
    IF and when they come out with a next gen Rift, I would hope the tracking is at least just as good.

    Here is the tracking volume for Santa Cruz

    This does make me think they are not going to use managentic tracking though and just use sight only. This brings me to the question of what is that dongle like thing on the side of the headsets from the patent images

    Does anyone have a link to watch the keynote live? Even tho I don't have Oculus rift yet, I still wanna watch it. (On browser of course)

    Although if they work like the rift, the controllers will keep tracking for about a second using the IMUs after leaving sight. So time it right to be sure. :)

    First report.
    Oculus are ditching all pc based vr and focusing on an app specifically for iPhone that uses google cardboard.
    All existing services will cease to function as of tomorrow including access to your game library and the oculus sdk
    This is my forum signature.
    There are many others like it, but this is mine.

    Steam VR just randomly popped up and refuses to close. I'm not running anything VR. I think it knows what I'm watching.
