Anyone know why Rift S has Lenovo design and not Quest/Rift design?

My
perplexity is the fact that rift s is "newer" in the production than
quest but they use the lenovo/halo system (that on samsung odyssey+ was
causing me a big red mark on the front)

So why this choice?

halo
system is less comfortable, and more heavy. Another thing not so
important is that with halo system it's not possible for example watch a
video or a movie in the bed with the head on the pillow, or watch/play
with the head resting on the chair due to the plastic of the halo system

Agreed. The older strap system is far better.

I guess this is one of those "can't please everyone" scenarios. Many people trying the rift s claim it is more comfortable than CV1
Fiat Coupe, gone. 350Z gone. Dirty nappies, no sleep & practical transport incoming. Thank goodness for VR 🙂

It's the PSVR design.
Go lookup why Oculus partnered specifically with Lenovo and you'll have your answer.

That’s pretty obvious but it doesn’t mean that it’s better. The strap design is best. It allows for more ventilation and is far more secure.

This is the reason and I much prefer the halo myself rather then having something grabbing my face like a facehugger from the Alien movies. I had to purchase VR PV cover from VR Cover before I could even stand to wear the current CV1 for more then 15 mins. I tried a friends PS -VR and it's super comfy, I used it for a couple of hours and had no problems with comfort.

The Vive is also going to go with the Halo on their next headset.

Samsung did GearVR (and supplied note3 screens for the DK20 and other stuff), Xiaomi did the Go and Lenovo did the Rift-S. But who helped Oculus with Quest? Was it another Xiaomi?

Vive with halo? All I can imagine for that is someone wearing the ring of a giant vive wand. 🙂

I am skeptical of the Halo design, but I will wait until people on this forum whom I trust try it and report their findings.
I will ask this though,
Did we potentially replace Rift-Face:


With Halo-Head?

Nice DnD! Ah yes, I remember the first time I wore the Rift for longer than an hour...

What it did to my head reminded me of a story I once read,
