    Quest 2 is some awesome tech. Has better motion clarity then even crt displays. Something the vast majority of lcd's and oleds struggle with.

    The Virtual Desktop developer is pretty mad about this announcement, but I'm just hyped to see if we can get performance that's any better than his solution. I managed to knock the total delay with Virtual Desktop streaming to 22ms, but beat saber is still mostly unplayable with it.

    Damn. This thing is so cool, what would you even need to hack it for?

    lmao I use a fake name on mine. How are they going to find out? Also I don't even use it for social media purposes. So, what does hacking it do anyway?

    They wanna hack it so they don’t need a Facebook account. Literally the only reason-

    Facebook and others like Twitter and other Silicon Valley giants have been known to go above and beyond invading your privacy. I may not be the most tech savy person when it comes to a lot of the technical stuff, but I wouldn't be surprised that even if you create fake accounts they can still somehow track it back to you and your information.

    oh, trust me, I know. Big tech even works with the government, so I wouldn't be surprised either.

    Just bought Virtual Desktop a couple of days ago.

    I feel pretty dumb now.

    So basically, it's what a VR headset is supposed to be. Wireless. One of the major factors of me not getting VR is the wires, but the other is the price.

    Yeah, VR should always be wireless, if not both.

    but that doesn't include games purchaced from the Oculus store, only SteamVR and a few niche titles that use openVR...

    ummm... isn't that what VirtualDesktop does already? What would be different about moonlight? With Virtual desktop, you can play just as if your headset was a monitor (one you can resize at will, no less), OR you can run SteamVR games, OR (for a one-time fee) use VorpX to play many other games in VR that weren't meant to be played that way. Black mesa is an example. Oh, and don't forget being able to watch 3D versions of movies, in actual 3d. On a screen floating above the moon, or with you sitting in a theater...

    yea, I love VR :P

    Now, if only they could find a way to make the battery last at least 4 hours without a secondary battery pack.

    Now that I've thought about it... Doesn't the Quest 2 run on Android at its core? Can't we just put it into emergency-firmware-image-download-device-fixer-upper mode and flash a custom ROM to it?

    You can sideload anything very easily

    If you mean the not legal stuff

    Probably shouldn’t go into detail here


    If you mean to hack it or something
    Well there’s been rumors since the month of launch that there’s been a way to hack it
    But the group who made it are
    Very secretive about it

    By the way, if anybody here gets thier hands on the v28 update, and happens to have the developer hub installed, would you mind looking at your quest 2 logs and grab the URL for the update.zip? All I can find is some lying a$$ clickbait that links to an older BUGGY update file, that's somewhere in the v27 range... :(

    V28 isn't out yet, that's why you can't find it.

    Probably won't launch until end of this month or middle of next.

    See below. I have no idea how they control it, but they're somehow doing a trickle thing instead of a mass-rollout. My laptop has v28 already. My Desktop does not.

    Try using the hub and look at your logs for the URL? Please?
