    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.

    Blurred out middle finger but showing gladiators getting there heads chopped off. Our priorities are screwed up.

    Vive pro was compelling... increased res, pass through cameras, rigid head strap, built in audio. The fact he prefers OG vive head strap is baffling. Not sure this is the place to get VR advice.
