Oculus Rift S, anyone? Linus forgot to mention it entirely!!!!!!! No need for extra cameras at all, for $ 400, it’s a good VR headset...

@FlyingFree333 Are you fucking kidding me?? Oculus is one of the only things keeping the VR industry afloat with their Rift S and Quest allowing people to have a seamless VR experience for less than half the price of Valve's offering. Am I saying that valve is charging too much? Absolutely not, but Oculus is the only one keeping the market competitive.

Or is Valve VR the Revolution 9 of Valve?

@ScarfFox and Friends first of all why would you ever play fnaf be and second of all what people have glanced over with all the jype around be is that Oculus insight devices will receive hand tracking in the near future

Oh fucking GAWD what a horrible clickbait VR ain’t dead title. VR games have gotten better every fucking month. Take a look at what Sony has done with their underpowered PC. #exclusively awesome. Best place for VR multiplayer. I know PC players that have like 5 VR friends. I got over 100 VR friends on PSN

I've had the Gear VR for my Note 4 and Note 8, I currently have the PSVR, an Oculus Go, a Vive Focus, a Samsung Odyssey, the original Vive and just upgraded to the Vive Pro. Comparing the newest system out there to the first gen Vive leaves a ton of systems between the two out of the picture. I get excited when I see a new VR come out, I got the Samsung because of the upgrade in resolution to the original Vive. I'm honestly wondering if this is a big enough upgrade to ditch the Vive Pro for.

Step 1. Go to Google Step 2. Search this keyword: 123moviesdaily 2019 Step 3. Enjoy! Maybe VR isn't dead after all... - Valve Index Review I met those laughing, fierce hazel eyes. Cassian’s smile softened. “Hello, Feyre.” My throat tightened to the point of pain, and I threw my arms around his neck, embracing him tightly. “I missed you, too,” Cassian murmured, squeezing me. When, in the street, I see a mother walking with her grown-up daughter, I can hardly bear to witness the mother’s pride, the softening of her face, her incredulous joy at being granted her daughter’s company; and the iron discipline she imposes on herself, to muffle and conceal this joy.

Linus can you get your hands on HAPTX gloves? They are easily the most advanced and realistic option on the market, featuring resistance and tactile feedback.

I've dropped out with Linus Tech tips because it's not always about everyday subjects, so found the Ryzen overclock item very good but too hard for me and I'm more waiting for budget tech what people can pay like comparing OEM computers, 27 inches or 34 inch monitors, SSDs, laptops, game keyboards and mice, how to overclock safely with MSI burner a video card or processor, without voltage because that is too complicated. What can I do with the Raspberry Pi 4 is there andriod TV ??? How to sync with software RGB with different brands of computer hardware ??

Sorry, VR is still too complex, expensive and too ineffective for the average user. It will always be ultra-niche, and spending $1000 on a system like this is just ridiculous. Many don't have the space, time or money to warrant this type of investment. VR is still dead.

Linus! beat saber has a well developed modding community that allows for not only saber tailor which will fix the weird saber angle with a bit of configuration but also custom charts!

Nice video Linus. Idk if I want to pay $1000 unless I get almost the full price for my original vive tbh. There are headsets out right now that cost half that, can play beat saber, and are completely wireless(play the game ANYWHERE). Btw if it's ok with you, could we get house tour sometime? I'd love to see how you set it all up being a tech guru and a dad XD (I personally find it difficult to have nice things with kids around lol)
