    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...

    Contact Boneworks by BrandonJLA and Stress Level Zero. They have full functionality for the index and an amazing physics engine

    Linus you really should explain the cat in the box. Did they ship the headset with a free cat?

    I know you've gotta get those clicks man, but could we drop the pedantic line of "VR is (or isn't) dead"?
    It's not. It's here, and it's growing. No, it's not mainstream yet but things like PSVR, Oculus Quest, and maybe things like the GO are pushing it into the mainstream. The Vive and Index are still the best options for people who want to have the best experience possible.

    I'm not going to invest into this kind of technology. I'm going to wait that Star Trek holodecks will become real.
