    Oculus Rift S, anyone? Linus forgot to mention it entirely!!!!!!! No need for extra cameras at all, for $ 400, it’s a good VR headset...

    I had no idea that you were into a strap on experience. Not judging.

    VR is not only never dead, it hasn't even slowed down. What the hell is this insane meme about the 'death' of VR. I just keeps growing. I have zero doubt it is the future.

    Does the cat get it's OWN headset to knock things onto the virtual floor during a game?

    VR video.
    With 5 finger tracking.
    Plays games that dont need any of it. Skips VRChat entirely.

    Why didnt you play the actual hands demo? You mostly played games that barely support the index. You also neglected to mention that the fingertracking improves over time with sustained use
