@jdavidnet like, this is precisely what I want.

I had a blast with the Quest 2, but that thing is bulky, probably to house the battery and fan.

Reduce the CPU power, and you probably won't need such a big battery and fan.

Meanwhile, Immersed's Visor is sleek and minimalistic, and I suspect it's not very powerful, but powerful enough to project a monitor in a 3D environment.

Class of XR device:

desktop monitor.

The whole point of the device is to receive desktop video feed via 802.11n, and relay that in a virtual environment.

No fancy CPU or GPU; just something to project on a 3D environment with headtracking, plus passthrough.

I have no idea what such a device should be called.

The biggest reason to be excited about the web was - and is - the openness of disintermediation.

I really feel that the #quest3 is a glimpse into the future, the same one that #apple is investing in.

#vr is great for games but #mr or #ar has far more use cases and would wlbe what gets these devices into the mainstream.

Sure people will give you odd looks right now, as the technology is in its infancy and isn't really discrete. Same thing used to happen when people first used to use mobile phones in public, or used laptops in cafes.

We’re chugging along with our MR first UI library. Here’s our built in implementation of hand matting!

A good spatial experience is gives a sense that virtual content is truly in the room. If you put your hand in front of an object and it appears behind it, it instantly breaks the illusion.

Hand matting is key to this. Our implementation isn’t perfect, but a little goes a long way!

Even if they walk it back, the Unity debacle is ultimately good for the XR community. Allowing a game engine to dominate the space has locked out developers who have no interest in game development.

We need to move away from game engines and create new & intuitive tools, designed from the ground up for XR, enabling an untapped community to discover new use-cases.

Considering the accessibility of Vision Pro pricing, I would expect to see a standard, non-Pro, Vision in the future.

I would love to see a licensable operating system in this space to level out pricing. It won't be Apple, but I think whoever does that OS will do well.

Have it on good authority (someone in the room) this is/was very authentic behaviour (GoGo 80's DNA)

Like the WATCH, existing #BigTech Co's will avoid  Vision Pro like the plague. The inability to scrape / harvest intimate personal BioData and #Health #Data is reason why.

Few will buy this device / millions will buy V2 & V3’s at;
Good - $1,000
Better - $1,800
Best - $3,000

@macrumors I think the early success could depend on the text quality.

If you can use it for virtual monitors, it could support your workflow.

A single Studio Display by Apple starts at €1,749 and a headset could potentially simulate multiple monitors around you.

Or (thanks to Stage Manager) pin your windows around you in space.

Universal Control lets you move your mouse pointer into floating windows.

The #SidequestVR and the #fdroid app forms a good foundation for independent, mostly open source apps for a standalone VR-Headset based on Android.

But this quickly leads to another problem: The standard library does not know any subdirectories! Yesterday I downloaded the PI-Launcher. The configuration takes a little getting used to, but it works fine. See for yourself:

A standalone VR-Headset like the #Focus3, #Quest2 or #Pico4 is nothing more than an Android device with built-in screens, motion trackers and usually two wand controllers.

So everyone who likes #FOSS should also have F-DROID on it. I thought so and gave it a try. Awesome! Besides #Sidequest now a second source to be more independent from the official stores.

So eine Standalone VR-Brille, wie die #Focus3, #Quest2 oder #Pico4 ist im Kern nichts anderes als ein Android-Device mit eingebauten Bildschirmen, Motion-Trackern und i.d.R. zwei Zauberstab-Controller.

Folglich sollte jeder, der #FOSS mag auch F-DROID drauf haben. Dachte ich mir und machte es mal. Genial! Neben #Sidequest nun eine zweite Quelle um unabhängiger von den offiziellen Stores zu sein.

Lasst uns probieren, wie der Multiuser-Modus von diesem kostenfreien VR-3D-Design Programm funktioniert. Evt. sogar Cross-Device? Interesse?

Let's try how the multiuser mode of this free VR 3D design program works. Maybe even cross-device? Interested? PM me.
