And with hand tracking!! AH! I want a 3d OS that surrounds me!

Sir-Ex 08-11-2014 10:27 AM

I seriously love the idea of being able to construct virtual apparatuses for physics research and engineering. UGHGHHGA!! EXCITEMENT!

Friend of mine just got DK2.
Idk much about programming but I'm gonna spend a few weekends w/him to see if we can do anything interesting.
V excited for this whole thing.

Way to bite my idea. :(

Didn't they sell out to Zuckerburg?

Im not judging them, id sell out too if given the chance, but it also killed any inclination of me ever trying them or wanting to use them for anything...

I still think they're very neat.

Bite it? I dig it!

Komp is the person who gave the idea of hand tracking in an occulus rift environment guys.


LGR (who I subscribe to) posting this video showing off the DK2 just inspired me to make a thread on it. Sorry if it seemed like I was appropriating your ideas Komp.


I'm just thinking that the interface could be made to be so intuitive. There are so many applications besides just games. Imagine building levels in Unity with that set up. You could work so quickly! Or being able to plot data sets for some physics analysis in 3-dimensions, being able to study and manipulate things in a 3d environment instead of with pen and paper or on a computer screen..

If you've seen the ending to HBO's Silicon Valley you'll see basically what i'm shooting for conceptually, even though its starting with Surgery.

Sir-Ex 08-14-2014 09:37 AM

Do you have any idea when the first commercial release of the Occulus is gonna be?

Sir-Ex 08-14-2014 09:41 AM

I haven't seen silicone valley..

Kompressor 08-14-2014 09:42 AM

No clue, there were no product dates even before Zuck bought em out.

I don't think FB will brand it to them alone, however. If anything Facebook is a big enough Google Jr now, able to incubate far-reaching ideas and sell ads/products from it instead of as it.

I'd give it 3-4 years before the average person is going to be able to pick one up like a console or pc...

even then, id skip the first few generations to let them work the bugs out...

I know that Sony is releasing their own kind of thing.. the name escapes me atm. I wonder how it'll compare.

Kompressor 08-14-2014 09:57 AM

Sony, even Google's Cardboard is making a run for the Rift's money.

Most surprisingly from the Kove Kit is that the Rift uses an over the counter overclocked Samsung Galaxy Note 3 as its display.

im jelly!

is this the one with the upgraded resolution or is that coming next build?

Kompressor 12-03-2014 02:21 PM

Next build, i ordered mine when the dk3 just came out. I reached out to them when they were ready to ship if i could switch to the dk3, but those aren't for sale yet. And given how long it took to distribute the dk2's, it'll probably be a while before the 3's are ready.

Correction: It is 1080p

fenderbender 12-03-2014 02:34 PM

cant wait,

i dunno if anyone has seen the anime Sword Art Online, but that kinda shit is totally what im stoked about. Virtual reality RPGs. Soon enough.

also virtual reality boobies will be nice.

Terry 12-03-2014 03:16 PM

You fucking bastard Komp.

I expect a full review by Monday.
