Our company sent out Oculus sets to select people to test various internal portals being developed for remote applications. Received mine today. Any suggestions for a noob when it comes to VR? I'm a bit concerned about getting motion sickness so we'll see. I get sick watching movies like Cloverfield (couldn't watch for more than 5 minutes), so I'm hoping it's not that bad...

^ start with just 5 minutes and take break. Work your way up to longer.

My wife gets motion sick and can handle about 15 minutes at a time.

Having a fan blow on you can help as well.

Start off with stuff that doesn't cause you to forget you're in VR? Like short concerts and short video clips to build up a tolerance? You'd also choose these so you can choose when you want to start looking around vs being forced to look around and getting the spins.

Motion sickness wise, ginger gravol should work fine. Or get some hot ginger type drinks to help ease you in?


Off topic, I've been super intrigued by wearable subwoofers that are like early gen haptic suits. BHaptics and Woojer are the ones I've been loosely following for a few years now, but I could never justify the costs. Mainly I'd be interested in them for gaming and possibly movies vs some of the advertised usage for music which is hit or miss depending on genre. Does anyone else have experience with these subwoofer vests?

Side note, I hear that pairing up these wearable subwoofers really add to the immersion level of VR.

This is good advice as well. I've noticed that I can get quite warm with VR.

Adding to your post, a nice ice cold drink to stay hydrated and cool is helpful as well. I find I get thirsty quite easily when playing with VR headsets for an extended period of time. I think it's warmer and you sweat more when in VR.

Sense Arena, while extraordinarily expensive is great VR hockey training software for the Oculus.

I just picked up a Quest 2, my first venture into VR. What are the must have apps for it?

So, the Supernatural app on Quest 2 has now added boxing workouts. #### me some of them are hard. Fun though.

Question:

Do the new headsets have manual focusing?

This is a huge issue with PSVR and made it unusable for me .

I'm not sure what that is so I'd say no, it doesn't have that option.

Just a dial on the goggles that allow you to manual adjust the focus.

Far sighted people can have trouble with the lenses being so close to the eyes.

Is the Oculus 2 Elite strap something someone should be looking at getting? I'm just deciding whether to go with the $70 in store credit which I would use towards the strap and battery pack or the $63.50 CAD or whatever it is game credit if bought through Oculus' site.
