Virtual Reality headsets? TME

Thinking of getting one. Don't know jack shit about these things. Is there a brand that does cool realistic shit like in the movie Ready Player One? TME.

I had the first mass produced Oculus Rift and currently have a Rift S. You will need a Facebook account to use Oculus gear soon. I use it for sim racing exclusively so I'm seated at all times. It still has the screen door effect. You could probably find the first consumer version used for $200 or less, it has sensors that need to be placed in the room whereas the Rift S has built in sensors. It is wired to the PC as well but there is a standalone Rift someone can probably tell you about. https://www.oculus.com/rift-s/

 

The new Reverb G2 has a much better resolution but will require a cable to the computer and a seperate power cable. It will likely be my next purchase since you can actually read the gauges in the car (iracing, Project Cars etc.)https://www8.hp.com/us/en/vr/reverb-g2-vr-headset.html

 

There is also Pimax which is a high resoultion, high FOV headset.https://www.pimax.com/

 

You will need a pretty powerful PC to run VR on the settings that give the most realism. 

I have the quest 2, it's amazing for the price...... Steam has something coming out that is absolutely insane.

Plus the quest 2 can hook up to your computer to play the heavy duty games like half life alyx.

Can you log on to the interwebs and watch Pornhub?

I have a Quest 2 and it’s great. The first time you use it is mind blowing. Just be aware that it’s riddled with cameras, you need a Facebook account to use it, and they are most likely watching you fap, for future reference.

I have the PS4 proprietary one. Haven't A/Bed against anything else, so can't speak to it competitively other than to say I can't imagine it was ever cutting edge.

What I liked about it is that it's plug & play, so no dicking around with settings to make it work. But then it only works with PS stuff, so, double edged.

I think I would have preferred it to be an all-in-one design rather than have to work around my regular headphones & deal with those extra steps. every time I put it on & take it off.

The pr0n thing, what can I say: The immersion is very effective except that you're still dealing with the same people shooting it, with the same annoying bad acting, lighting, & taste. So, it's very difficult finding content that "works" IMO. & there's no wriggling out of it if you live with others.

For price and quality you cant beat the quest 2

Dude VR porn is a whole new ballgame.  


 


The quest 2 tracks your motion so it's not just a world you can see, but you are actually there. You can lean in for a closer look at stuff.

I have the Steam Index.  It's much better than anything out there as far as quality, comfort, balance, field of view, colors, and clarity.  It also cost more.

Just be careful with this. There's a chance you could get caught jerking off and not even know it until someone slaps the headset off your head.


 


That's what I'm told anyway.

^That's what I was implying. Better make sure everyone with a key is cool with it & not an asshole.
