RE: My first impressions of the Oculus Quest 2 I got for Hivefest

in STEMGeeks4 months ago
  • all the adjusting didn't work for me until I put in the spacer... which supposedly for glasses but it helped me see better for sure.
  • there is a really cool steam vr discount on humblebundle.com I'll do a larger post about but the discount is for 5 more days. It will get you a bunch of pcvr games
  • as for comfort of strap i didn't mind but after a couple hours I didn't like it so I bought what most people consider the most comfortable head strap the HTC vive DAS and will do the frankenquest.
  • facebook I owe to basically helping to pay my bills for a decade or so. Its how I advertise my photography and communicate with clients ... in theory I am against what they do but in practice I would not be in the great position of life I am without them so obviously for me having a fb account is a not a big issue. Also can't you just have an account with no posts no likes and essentially just a shell of an account with little for them to traffic? My sister is playing and she isn't really on FB she deactivated it years ago... but technically it still exists.
  • I get you don't like fb in theory but you are smart enough to work around your issues with them is what I'm saying. But the venting is understandable I suppose.

I was thinking about trying this. But I feel close works better as it seems to get clearer if I push it to my face. It seems as it falls down on my face it gets blurrier, but higher it gets clearer.

I'll check that out, I'm in the market now for VR stuff :)

But the only way to do this is put my real information, that they can track my IP, location, what I do via the Oculus iPhone app and Oculus Quest 2. There has already been experiments that just talking about something with Facebook on your phone will result in ads for that topic, it isn't unexpected this carries over to their other apps. Facebook has always proven they will sell anything they can ethical or not. The oculus has cameras, who knows if it is watching me when I am and when I am not using it.

Facebook is evil af, and I want no part of that. I will use a sock puppet, but I won't give them real identifying information, so that puts everything I own in the ecosystem at risk of being stolen like my Steem was.

... that they can track my IP, location...

Using some VPN and/or TOR connections could be a good workaround to protect your privacy?

🍻 Cheers & a huge hug! 🤗

Yeah the bundle deal seems crazy good you get a bunch for $17 and one of those titles alone is walking dead for 39$ normally. Buying directly on quest though would mean playing without wires which maybe is worth it to some.

The Quest 2 can be used wireless from a PC, so if you are in your house you can still do it without wires.

but the games in that bundle are from Steam so i figured wires are needed.

Not from what I understand, you can setup virtual desktop and use that wireless to play games at 90 fps over wifi 5/6.

Not sure what wifi my computer has to be honest... it's many years old now.
Not sure how to check. I guess i could get a different USB wifi adapter.

Well now i'm probably gonna buy this and upgrade my wifi anyway

Hey @themarkymark, here is a little bit of BEER from @amico.sports for you. Enjoy it!

There's been talk about them not even needing your video feed data, that's too heavy to constantly send to their servers. They can just get your movement data, which is pretty unique to each user. So basically without logging in and just putting on the headset they know exactly who's using it.

They have zero competition though and that's a problem. Their headsets are like a gift from the devil. Too good to pass up, but you know it's wrong.
