Request For External Base Station / Sensor Support

The Rift S should support add-on base station / external tracking.

I run into issues with controller drift and close to the body and outside the range of the headset tracking.  These are issues I only found when moving to Rift S from CV1, an easy fix for this would be some type of external tracking add-on for the people that need it. 

Maybe if enough people request, we can get this done.

    not going to happen, you'd need new hardware and in a time where oculus is eliminating as much hardware as possible theres no chance they'l go back on it

    Yeah I messaged John Carmack on Twitter about this a while ago and he said "better to hope for improvements to Insite tracking instead". Those were his words.

    I've given up hope for Rift S now. It is what it is.

    Let's just hope Oculus/Facebook make up for it with Rift CV2 and let's hope CV2 goes back to proper tracking with Constellation.

    However that has been running for 5 months and has 186 votes, but Oculus haven't changed their plans so far.
