DecaGear - new VR headset for 2021?


Recommended Posts

Did you see this? 450$? Sounds too good for this:

 

- 2160x2160 (so like Reverb)

- 90Hz (like Reverb too)

- wireless (with DecaAir system in the future)

- face and fingers tracking

- SteamVR

The wireless thing sounds good for most of the population but I like my wired headset as it is. It is a bit more like a wired/tubed in pilot.

Let us see what the G2 brings and what DecaGear need to equal and surpass.

HP pro Reverb.

Current settings:

Windows VR setting: IPD is 64.5mm, High image quality, 90Hz refresh rate.

Steam: VR SS set to 100%, motionReprojectionMode set to "motionreproduction" and Locked in at 45 Hz display,

DCS: Pixel Density 1.0, Forced IPD at 55 (perceived world size), 2 X MSAA, 0 X SSAA.

My real IPD is 64.5mm. Prescription VROptition lenses installed.

VR Driver system:

I9-9900KS 5Ghz CPU. XI Hero motherboard and 2080ti graphics card, 32 gigs Ram 3

[code][code][code][code]

[/code][/code][/code][/code]200 Hz. No OC at the mo.

Looks amazing !!!!! The team seems to be very talented, and they have a prototype with the final shape working.

 

We have still to see if they can achieve mass production at that price, but I'm hyped !!!!!

 

BTW, the wireless solution will be based on Wifi, so it will not be as good as the HTC adapters based on WIGIG.

They say they see it mainly as a wired headset.

I don't care for the trend of wireless devices. While I understand wireless is beneficial to standing experiences, it only introduces another failure point for those of us who use VR for seated experiences...like everyone who uses VR for flight or racing simulations. I'm bothered by the trend and that sim folks will get lost in the shuffle as VR appears to tend to wireless devices in some ways..fwiw...

 

However, since this thing is 450 bucks, I get on the pre-wait-for-the-preorder? It's 10 bucks...why not. But someone tell me if this is going to us WMR. Is it? Or would it use its own software like the Pimax?

 

And 450 clams is better than the 600 for the Reverb G2...for the same resolution it's pretty much a no brainer...if it works like expected...

That looks really nice! Well, since I will forego the Reverb G2, maybe I will get this next. But I’m not sure how much of an upgrade to my G1 this might be.

 

Just where did you see that this should be completely wireless? They are talking about their DecaAir pack. But I can‘t find any info that this is wireless only.

No, I didnt noticed this in his materials but according resolution example - 2160x2160 pxt I think it will the same like in Reverb (FOV about 114 deg), not like in Pimax.

Looks interesting, but at the end of the day I don't really think it will offer much beyond what the gen2 reverb does for DCS. Of course wireless is great for other VR things, but for seated VR largely irrelevant. Also, we have no idea on what types of lenses/IPD/screens etc are in this headset.

It doesn't sound too good to be true really. Back in 2015, it used to cost about that with the promise and premise that in time, the price would eventually go down. 5 years later, people are paying twice as much thinking it's just "normal". The technology already evolved, there is a healthy supply of the required high frequency screens but they keep charging higher and higher prices. $450 is already on the high end of the price spectrum of what "they said it was going to be today".

Remember that, now, every new headset that intend to enter the market will have to take into account the Quest 2 price.

It won´t be easy to any company trying to enter the market now.

But this company won´t be able to manofacture in such great volume to acomplish that intended price in my opinion.

Will see.

Yeah, price manipulation with fecesbook seems to be the name of the game. Undercut the market, get market share. Happily get monopoly, charge what you want.

This thing seems too good to be true at that price, and I'm afraid it's a scam, as the owner was involved in some adware business earlier in his career. See uploadvr article about it (although be advised, it's writen by the one and only "Insufferable (Oculus) Fanboy" David Heaney). I'm rooting for every new HMD on the market, though I'd prefer new SteamVR offering than another WMR offering - for that there's the G2. And wireless is great as long as you still have wired option. We will see when this thing pops out if it's worth the hype. Certainly sounds interesting.
