I've just ordered a Gear VR (and already have PSVR) but I am interested in this...
I see that there's no external sensory equipment so I assume that it doesn't do motion tracking.
I see it's for the PC and the it supports "most VRNG" - I've not heard of that before

From what I can gather, it looks as though this needs the "DeePoon Assistant" to make non-VR into VR but I don't see how it will work with games that are made for VR... Do you know any more about it?

VR newbie question: How would this compare to the Samsung Gear VR?

Totally different product. This is meant for playing Steam games and running Oculus apps really.

Will not work on windows 10

It does it's just not an officially supported platform because the Oculus DK2 didn't officially support Win10 when this was made.

That uses Nvidia's cloud streaming app to send the PC game to your mobile phone over the internet I think.

Thanks
Seems like a great device for the money - especially if you've got a small office like me and don't want to play spacial VR games (some of the best VR games are seated imo).
I guess it's going to need a beefy pc to power it, akin to Vive & Occulus requirements?

Should be pretty easy to run this. What are your specs?

Xeon X5650, 24GB RAM, R9 270x 4GB.
Should be enough hopefully - it was more of a general question for anyone else interested

Hmmm... if this has no camera for positional tracking then it's really a glorified GearVR for PC.

You'd be better off picking up a used DK2 off of ebay for circa £200 if you want a decent VR experience on PC for your money. Without positional tracking you may as well play games on your phone with GearVR and Cardboard.

You might want to have a look at Trinus psvr if you've already got the psvr just use this, allows you to play non vr and steam vr games. Saves wasting money on a extra device. reddit.com/r/P…der

Ooh - nice thanks.
I thought it would take more time.

I was on the fence about this, until I noticed that it "makes your feel real".

Sold.

No one has made a joke about the name yet? DePoon? Any poon will be banished from your life if you get too hooked on this (_;)

VR still feels like the 3D craze we had 6-7 years ago in movies and games.

Like it's a nice additional thing but it'll never quite catch on and be the mainstream standard. Then eventually people will drift away from it and the fuss will die down again. Like it did by 1995. But hey. Let us see.

Of course. It would need to be connected to a PC though. It isn't standalone.

It's a complete waste of money without positional tracking, I wouldn't even call it VR.

Yeah it works pretty well still in alpha but overall once it's set up it's amazing. My main problem is unplugging it from the PS4 and plugging it into the PC hate faffing with all the cables.

Even seated games and experiences need positional tracking. Without it you lose any ability to lean in and out of a scene or around objects which completely breaks the natural immersion which VR is trying to achieve.

Maybe it's specially designed for VR poon

I'd say what isn't doing the market any favours is the mainstream headsets being well overpriced, including the psvr, plus a lack of decent software.

Question:Windows 10 ok.Reply:Hello bruno,It cannot work with Windows 10 .



​​Gearbest reps always say that, they will only read back what the manufacturer has stated on the a spec sheet. This just means that it's not officially supported on paper, and does not mean it will not work on Windows 10 be default or by using compatibility mode.

be careful of this... OP are you SURE it is essentially the same as a DK2? the biggest improvement of the DK2 over the DK1 was its camera which tracked to allow full 6 degrees of motion tracking.
My understanding of this depoon HMD it only has the very basic tilt tracking that DK1 had, albeit with a screen more like the DK2.

IF I am right this is not as good as a DK2 at all, not even close. IMO the danger of people buying HMDs like this is they will think all VR is like this and ultimately it hurts the entire industry.

@ anyone who thinks VR is just like 3D TV..... if you have tried "proper" (ie oculus rift CV1 or VIVE) and feel that way fair enough, but if not, then, please do before giving an opinion. VR is NOTHING like 3DTV, and imo it will stick this time... sure it may not reach mass appeal for a few years, but i think there is enough traction now to survive....

I have had a VR system for 3 years now and honestly for racing games / flying games there is absolutely no going back. No VR support, no purchase for me it is that simple, and with motion control VR games to be honest other genres are fast going that way as well for me.

As above - Looks more like an enhanced DK1 to me. Without the positional tracking it's very much lacking compared to the likes of even Oculus DK2.

Great price for entry as long as you remember that this isn't even close to the high end HMDs out now. If it's not very good - don't let it put you off the proper thing.

Deepoon Works fine with windows 10, please research before posting.

Deepoon Works with Oculus home, Steam VR, Leap Motion. It's also backwards compatible with sdk 0.8 if you don't mind tinkering.

As long as people remember this still isnt going to be anything like the rift or vive then thats ok.. Its going to be almost like the GearVR tbh, just with pc apps.. no motion tracking kinda ruins the immersion I would suspect!

If you pay a quarter of the price of vive, and Rift, what more to expect. biggest part of immersion for me is the SD effect in which yes, deepoon has, but not that bad.

Price doesn't force something off the market. People will just ignore it until they can afford it or the price drops (price doesn't stop them wanting it, just prevents them from getting it).
Look at the PS3, came out at an astronomical price compared to competition (£425 Vs 360 - £280 and Wii - £180) but ended up selling a ridiculous amount after a price drop.

On top of this - early adopters are relying on a very small subset game developers to keep the ecosystem going. When somebody releases a cheaper HMD that doesn't perform nearly as well as the full priced alternative and is capable of playing only a very small portion of that already small pool of games (all of varying quality). A lot of people will be left with a bad taste in their mouths from their experience. THAT will stop people getting excited for VR - "Ohhh I tried VR, but it kept jumping about when it lost my tracking and it gave me headaches whenever I moved around using the control pad"

oculus are well aware of the chicken and egg scenario of gamesd developement which is why they have invested $250 million in game development. (valve may be doing the same but i cant comment).

Rob recall cost the same amount to make as Gears of war 1, and this is a FREE title for all oculus touch purchasers when it comes out next month.
I agree content was a little light on the ground for a while - i was fine, assetto corsa, pcars, euro trucks sim 2 and the sublime elite dangerous (among others) were more than enough for me.

but now oculus touch is out there is actually a decent amount of VR content to cater for all tastes. (and most works on the vive too using revive)
Arizona sunshine is well worth a look btw.

I know my post is very much oculuscentric, this is just the ecosystem i know, i am sure there are plenty of vive users with similar stories for vive too.

Google Cardboard / Cheaper cardboard headsets seems to be the foot in the door introduction to VR, and depending on the mobile device being used, the experience can be very bitter.

Oculus have done well with releasing polished games with the Touch controllers though
