Tuscany demo for Android

Hi,I was wondering, is it possible to export the Unity Tuscany demo for Android devices (with SBS 3D) and use the on-board IMU for tracking? For us unfortunate devs that haven't received a Rift yet, it would at least allow us to play around some with...

multiple hydras

It seems like it could be possible to connect multiple hydras for additional tracking. With additional hydra(s) you could track head position, both hands, and possibly even feet. Has anyone tried this yet to see if it works in any of the engines?

Why no headphone jack?

Hi there,I wonder if the next DevKit (or at least the consumer version) will have a headphone jack on the HMD itself? As the device is connected per HDMI anyway, this should not be a real problem, doesn't cost much but will make the setup much easier...
