So a couple of months back I pre ordered the HTC vive on the spur of the moment as VR which I could walk around in appealled.
Arrived last Friday in big box 9kg via FedEx.
Fair number of bits a pieces in the box so took a careful couple of hours to setup but instructions clear.
Installed software ok, and pre existing steam account updated itself and downloaded some free games with the passcode that HTC sent me.
Minor panic when the software could find the head set on second hdmi port which went to splitter box but resolved when connected the PC directly to vive link box.
Then traced out the free space in my study to delineate the boundaries of my study play area 2m by 2m.
Then I dove in...
It works very well. But of silly giggling playing in first tutorial blowing up balloons and hitting them round room. You can see some of the screen pexels but it passes.
Young daughter fascinated by the underwater "game".
Unfogotten Relms is basic D+D games which has had me crawling on the floor to get under swinging ax traps.
Wearing glasses has the usual distortions and issues with fogging.
I've inserted my prescription glasses that fit in my ski goggles (no ear pieces) which was a definite improvement.
Next weekend might try Elite Dangerous. I see there is a utility for using the Vice with Microsoft flight simulator.
Plus can load Google photo spheres I think.
Any other opinion?
