I had the intention of creating a short HTC Vive video with various tips – but life has gotten in the way!
Anyhow, here is the next best thing – sharing a link to a good guide! I received an email from Alex (who wrote this) a few days ago. It looks pretty cool. Check out the various tips and tricks: http://www.ultravr.org/htc-vive-guide/
I tried the HTC Vive as well as the Oculus consumer headsets at a number of London Meetups. I got love for room scale… so… blew up my bank account and have the HTC Vive on pre-order. Should be receiving it next month (April 2016). Valve have a test application that can provide you with an idea of how your hardware will cope with the next generation of consumer VR. My PC’s test results suggest that I am going to need to update the old graphics card to do the experience some justice! To be honest, I knew this was coming. Seriously considering ebaying off my “old stuff”!
