I have a few questions...
1) Will omni gadgets be compatible with Daydream VR (for Android) ?
2) Will omni gadgets be compatible with Steam VR / OSVR (for Linux) ?
3) Can the harness track thigh movements ?
3b) If not, can the tracking pods be added to the harness, to track thigh movements ? (For tracking leg movement while sitting)
4) When will the Omni gloves be released ?

Thanks in advance.

  • Hi @Ne0 here's the answers to your questions:
    1) Will omni gadgets be compatible with Daydream VR (for Android) ?
    This should be possible, as the Omni can connect already to Android mobile devices using Bluetooth.
    2) Will omni gadgets be compatible with Steam VR / OSVR (for Linux) ?
    Currently, the Omni is not compatible with Linux, but we may look into this in the future.
    3) Can the harness track thigh movements ?
    No, this is not a function of the harness.
    3b) If not, can the tracking pods be added to the harness, to track thigh movements ? (For tracking leg movement while sitting)
    That's an interesting concept, and we haven't looked into it. It may be possible, but that would depend entirely on the game itself and how it utilizes the data being sent to it from the Tracking Pods.
    4) When will the Omni gloves be released ?
    We don't have anything to announce for this. The Omni Hands project was created by a team of students at Rice.. It's fantastic tech, but it's not yet ready to be a product.
