Thanks @mixedrealityTV for your awesome coverage at CES!
I hope they actually deliver the controllers. CES2020 and they still don’t have anything real to show, this could just be a mock-up again. And no base stations for anyone yet… Still paid for that stuff a long time ago and would appreciate to receive something in exchange for my money.
Matthew demonstrated.a working controller with Beatsaber. Though it makes one wonder what happened to changes PimaxUSA talked about in Feb/Mar 2019 as this still shows the ring.
Guessing there was an issue with the design changes he mentioned. Suggesting a premature update back then.
Matthew was filmed, playing with one hand, super gently. First thing I thought was: It could easily be some other guy behind him with an htc wand or index.
I want to see the controllers MRTV is holding working with Beat Saber on Expert+.
And about the Sword Sense, they have never shown anything other than a concept art and a name.
Let’s not speculate as Matthew is very honorable. As Sword is mainly a vive wand re skin. Still has challenges but one could create a variant though rough with a vive tracking puck.
Yep, I dont want to be pessimistic but the controllers did show a very serious lag with steamVR one controller and no LH…
No lighthouse? Don’t you need minimally 1?
I know the demo video matthew did was just a quick demonstration and not a full demo.
Yes but that is what we can see on the screen in the SteamVR window.
Will need to rewatch it been awhile.
I hope it wont bother anyone if I post this… but there is a sc, showing the hand down and the saber up, and we can see steamvr window without BS (yeah ok I know it doesnt mean anything, dont hit me please)
That would explain the lag then maybe.
I was hopping they would have gotten rid of the tracking ring on the inside of the hand, It`s going to get hit a lot. good luck with trying to load and cocking a gun in boneworks with that setup, and fast game play in beat saber is going to be interesting, I have hit my index controllers and HMD more that once
Its impossible to track controllers without lighthouses… maybe its a bug… ?
Yes yes probably, just …weird.
Unless it’s a inside out one lol
or maybe it was just a video playing and Matthew was trying to match the movement on screen, that would explain why he was so slow and it was ‘lagging’
But like Heliosurge said, let’s not speculate and assume Pimax is trying to get away with the money we paid for controllers over 2 years ago.
Dont worry, in the worse case we will end up with Nolo setup ^^
@PimaxQuorra Can you please include Pimax controllers in next update! Thank you.
Yep. have come real close with Index and would have even them with a smaller ring (like Touch). The reason for this ring size and position totally eludes me.
