Newbie is totally perplexed by usb 3.0 "Hardware Error"

Just received an asus g11 with the oculus package. Easy setup. The demo worked great! Tried to load the valkyrie game, and discovery vr (both downloaded through oculus store) . Both threw up an error message "hardware error - update usb drive to cont...

3rd camera arrived

360 degree tracking is definitely improved. I totally see why oculus dont support it officially with 2 cameras.(please dont call me a liar on this again anyone).. I guess the only sad thing is the userbase is fragmented even more with some without to...

Touch must haves?

I've been away from the 'rift for a few months due to the house being in disarray. Just getting it set up again now, and have succumbed and ordered the Touch controllers. They'll be here towards the end of the week. Thing is, I've pretty much lost to...

What? The Rift came with a Mic that is inside of it?!

Wow, I'm sure this is old news to everyone but me. I just learned that the Rift has a built in Mic. I could have talked to those people in that VR social chat program where I was looking around at everything like an idiot while people were asking me ...

It must be said, but they are awfully good. (Rift headphones)

The Rift headphones.I am far from an "audiophile" but still picky when it comes to sound. If you get a MP3 player or similar today it comes with earplugs which in general sound like something you won at a tombola at the Chinese dollar store. I love b...

I still get surprised how good VR is

I've been using the Rift since May, and there are still many moments when I get surprised just how convincing and good VR can be. I'd say I'm quite used to VR now... I use it often, especially since Touch controllers came out. But even with quite a b...
