Quest link extreme extension

I would like to play be games from my computer using the quest, the problem is my computer room isn’t in the most VR place and the nearest “usable” area is about requires 30ft of cable to reach and the best place requires 40 to maybe even 50ft (including slack to move around a bit) what can I do to extend and cable far enough?

    For long distances like say 50ft I think you will need to use optical usb cable, like the official Oculus Link cable.  Pretty expensive though.

    If only they had a VR headset that didn't need a cable. Wouldn't that be something?

    I'm amazed at how many people are buying a standalone headset so that they can buy a cable to use with their PC. It's also a bit weird that the only cable that Oculus sells is for their "standalone" headset.

    Dear Oculus, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it", please.
