It’s been a while since the last update of Pimax VR Experience v0.60. To be able to add all planned and upcoming features, a lot of things had to be changed in the code. Therefore, Armin @arminelec and I decided to dig deeper into the code and make major core changes to the entire project. This required a massive amount of work, and we have come a long way now!
Meanwhile, we are bringing you a new updated version filled with goodies, updates and bugfixes! Feel free to give it a go, and let us know what you think And as always, big thanks and credits to Armin for his amazing dedication into this project!
