Going on a cruise soon and i wanted to take my Quest with me. I know it has sensors and such that it uses to track your movement anyone know if the boat moving would mess with it at all?

    it will technically work fine but could cause motion sickness. like using an motion platform for vr racing without the compensation tools.

    If it's a very small cruise ship like this one I'd worry too, especially in rough weather, lol

    - but if it looks like this, where you don't really notice it's sailing, I wouldn't worry at all:

    If it’s like this one and there was enough movement to cause VR tracking issues, I think I’d have other concerns!
