  • Re: Cleaning and maintenance

    I have a soft brush I occasionally dust with. I threw an old bedsheet I had laying around and sewed the edges in so that it functions as a rudimentary cover when not in use. It's the only way to get my cats to stay off the dang thing and quit tracking dirt and litter on it.
    I had been suggesting that Virtuix put 10 seconds into designing up a basic cover since I first got into the pathfinder program. I had the idea to offer different options ranging from; "covers when not in use" to "can stay on even during use to prevent outsiders from fiddling with buttons" to "is cut resistant and can prevent the Omni from being stolen from public booths/arcades"
    Had Virtuix not shut down consumer sales, I probably would have run a kickstarter for something official for them myself, but now I don't think the footprint will be large enough to justify the expenditure.
  • Re: Here is my custom 70 inch Support Ring with working hinge ready for 3D printing : )

    HEY!!! SORRY ..I was not laughing at overweight people! I was laughing at the pathetic 3d model that doesn't take any of the internal electronics into consideration (the stuff that tells what direction you are pointed).
    gahh
    Internal electonics? How about the basic ability to attach it to anything? Even if the ring is larger, it has no way to connect to the support posts, and the support posts aren't even angled properly to accept that attachment if it was present. I get that it's supposed to be a joke, but there's not enough of a reason to take it seriously for me to find it funny that it's not being serious.
  • Re: question on running games with rift

    @CheezWiz - Rather than suspect a grassroots propaganda campaign against Oculus, it's far easier to just chalk up the different reports to different hardware limitations. I'm not sure what specs your motherboard has, but I'm sure there are people who barely meet (if they do at all) the suggested or even minimum hardware requirements for VR, and as a result may not be equipped to handle multiple cameras.

    magnets
  • Re: Virtuix shoes need wheels for turning while walking/running

    yeah, the only difference in our shoes seems to be that those three white sliders of yours are black on my shoes. the foam I was talking about is the same as that half disc of form that you can see on the toe of your shoe. For me, that provides plenty of grip to allow proper turning. It's possible you aren't leaning enough, which helps when you pivot at the waist. It took me a couple different tries before I was able to walk properly, because I also wasn't really sure what height to set my support ring to.
