Oculus Rift S and Rift


Welcome to the Oculus Rift S and Rift feedback forum! This is the location to provide all your feature requests and ideas for the Oculus Rift platform. We're looking forward to hearing from you on the following areas of the product:

  • Dash: Oculus Dash is the in-VR command center the pops up when you hit the Oculus button on your Touch controller. Dash allows you to access PC Desktop apps, your VR Library, and other system settings and services from anywhere in VR.
  • Desktop App: This is the out-of-VR Oculus application on your PC that allows you to do things like browse the store, manage your settings, and view your friends list, among other things.
  • General: Use this category for any feedback that doesn’t fit neatly into one of the other more specific categories.
  • Home: This is your customizable in-VR home where you can show off your unique style and decorations.
  • Store: The place where all VR app purchasing takes place. The Store category covers both the out-of-VR and in-VR stores.
Please do your best to ensure all ideas are original and have not been previously submitted. Thanks for helping us improve Oculus Rift S and Rift!    
  1. Track moving objects

    Make it so if there is a moving object (like a person or pet) in your play space/ inside of your barriers, you will get an alert or pass through will activate so you don’t hit anyone, anything, or you can see people trying to prank you while your playing. Would that be a good idea?

  3. Frustration free coil-less wire for Rift S please !!?

    VERY dissapointed at the sheer useless cable for the Rift headset. It knots up and curls up like a dried worm and ruins experiences. I was hoping for a wireless PC headset, but i guess that is a way off yet ? Quest is what i would have gone for, but i want more PC gaming.
    Anyway, i am pleading with Rift, PLEASE make the cable/wire for Rift S braided, or some material that does not coil up like a snake, PLEASE !

  4. Get a Quality Assurance Department

    You guys have kept slipping further and further up on my list, well you hit the top now(You were second, but Apple kept being so , then I sold off everything I owned of theirs, including and entire account of stock.). So here it is, drop your ridiculous idea of HOME IS MANDATORY. Just have a set of drivers for the rift and let the big boys handle the rest(i.e. Valve), I get it you have your store and need to make money so still offer that, but get rid of the VR home that NO ONE asked for.

  5. Option to extend warranty via a payment method

    I previously had to return my oculus for a refurbished model due to a blacking out/display related fault in the headset cable. My warranty ends in a few months and i don't want to be **** out of luck and have to buy a complete new headset if this new replacement suffers the same fault issue. So I was hoping there could be an option to pay for a warranty plan for a certain length of time to allow replacement in the event it is damaged or broken after the original warranty expires.

  7. Could you allow me to use rift CV1 HMD to create the YouTube content about my VR technical idea?

    Dear Oculus,

    I am Yongbum Kim from South Korea (Republic of Korea).

    I want to upload Youtube VR contents created using Oculus Rift HMD (CV1) and 3rd party's Mocap solutions.

    I would like to make a VR HMD required for performing this activity. But, I do not have the ability to produce such excellent hardware.

    It is so obvious. Because it's a masterpiece that the world's best engineers have built and updated over the years. Therefore, I have no choice but to use Oculus’s HMD for making the Youtube contents.

    I have seen a lot of VR videos created by…

  8. Mirror Audio is a disaster! Although I can send Desktop to Oculus I can't do it opposite way for good use without bad latency!

    Useless!
    Design the Driver to duplicate Audio in Sync to onboard Sound (or card) rather than this latency delay!

  9. Spectators

    Rift is a phiscally solitary experience. Even at VR parties, everyone who's not in vr isn't gripped by the TV screen's flat representation.

    To remedy this, enable users to view the experience from their perspective using gear vr or phone app.

  11. Guardian takes away too much room, warning too early when I'm in a small space.

    Guardian takes away too much room, warning too early when I'm in a small space.
    It would also help if I could map space above a desk as available, but not below the desk or where the monitor sits.
    Consider some kind of configurable fixed visualisation aids for the boundaries rather than popping up grid.

  12. more 90s sci fi styling

    Can you make it bigger with loads of RGB lights and coloured wires to attach to your head and some coloured wires that go down your arms like tron and a 2001 HAL style voice AI DEEPMIND voice that talks to you and guides your experience and i want a dash button with LSD mode on it so i can drop out and just hit the trip button and it just sucks up my body like in the Lawnmower Man movie's .

    Thank you !

  13. Keep The Rift Model Readily Available for the Forseeable Future

    Just went to the website to purchase a Rift model and the website states it is out of stock so I contacted support and was told there were more on the way. Great.

    My concern with the Rift S however is that it will be COMPLETELY replacing the Rift model. Not all of us want the S model, not all of us want to pay more for it, not all of us mind the sensors, etc... See my concerns here? I don't want my only option of a product to be the version I don't want. I don't have any…

  14. Mountains

    I climb nountains for a living in Colorado and I've been wanting to link up with a VR company for awhile now in an attempt to create content for their VR platform. My idea of VR is to experience those things around the world instantaneous. No geographical or physical hurdles to leap, just load the content and go. Specifically Colorado has 58 peaks above 14,000 ft all of which have uniquely amazing views and physical feats associated with each. I believe it would be great to share these through your VR platform and your users. Thanks and let me know…

  15. "Do not update automatically" button

    Ovrserver_x64 uses 7 gigs of bandwith a month, even if your Rift is sitting in the box, for updates i am told. The only way to stop it is to delete everything. Then you will have to re-download the oculus installer which is also huge, when you want to play the Rift. Also let us save the installer and update from there instead of having us re-download it everytime there is an issue.

  16. Push To Talk

    A generic push-to-talk system would be very helpful. Most software that has VOIP includes PTT.

  17. Allow non-SSE4.2 CPU to work with Rift even though it has no Support Help and not passing specs

    Having had my Xeon Quad Duo 3GHz perform very well with CV1 for 3yrs now with a GTX970 then GTX1080, Oculus blocked it in 1.32 Runtime. You know about the cpu install hack and it should have been allowed to still work but they blocked the completion of install in the LibrarianServer.
    Although I begin again with Rift today with a new (£1200) XPS8930 i7 8700, I still feel strongly that Blocking older cpu was very wrong. Only LONE ECHO uses SSE4.2 which even has it's very own cpu check after the install!

  18. Hardware system check

    Some kind of system hardware integrity check or something. My touch controller appears to be malfunctioning (and it's brand new) and I've done a bunch of stuff like removing the battery, reinstalling, etc, all for something that could totally be a hardware problem. so it'd be cool if there was a way i could rule that out.

  19. VR accelerator

    My idea is about a hardware device. The one thing I think that is agreed about what Vive does a little better is tracking. I think if the devs don't get that 4 USB devices are not the root cause of all the tracking issues and requests for an off button with Oculus dash/home. Wondering if it is possible to have a hardware box, kind if like the link bor for vive, but to be able to accept all the usb inputs and have some kind of onboard processing that does the math for what the cameras are doing and…

  20. Add Oculus Venues

    Since we paid the most for your headsets, why does this have to be such a big deal. Just add Venues to Rift. We couldn't watch the oculus connect 5 livestream in VR.
