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. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. Can you please make the guardian system function in 3 Dimensions

    I would like to know where my bed or my desks are, this makes it easier for me to not hit anything (as i can tell where i am and what is and isnt an actual wall) and i would be able to know where i can place things and where i have placed them. This helps a lot with room orientation and it could be done by using the controllers height or some sort of raycast.

  5. guardian direction

    It would be nice to have the ability to see sensors when approaching guardian system and/or have a front back left right marker, maybe by color of the grid or label.

  6. Set up position of desk in Guardian System. OR! Ability to setup more than one guardian system

    My computer, keyboard, and mouse sits on my desk. I set the guardian system up to where the edge of the desk is the edge of my guardian system so I don't accidentally punch my screen when punching a droid in Robo Recall or walk into the desk itself in VR. However, if I could somehow sit at my desk and use it without the Guardian system getting in the way that would be great. I like using the headset but would like to switch to my keyboard to type a paper for college or play a game that requires…

  7. guardian

    Not sure if this is a new idea, or a bug introduced by Core 2.0 beta.

    When playing games that don't support the Touch controllers, the guardian system is disabled until the game is exited. Once back in Oculus Home/Dash or when loading a Touch enabled game the guardian system works fine again.

    I'm sure that before Oculus Core 2.0 beta, that loading a non-Touch enabled game wouldn't disable the guardian system?

    So I guess this is either a great new idea, so please vote, or it's a bug that needs fixing, so please vote :-)

  9. Option to show the center of the play-area in-game.

    Some games offer this option, but it would be very useful to be able to permanently display the center of the play-area using the Guardian settings.

    Allow us to set the size, color and transparency for bonus points.

  11. Automatically disable guardian when seated at keyboard

    Ability to create/remember a "seated position" where guardian will be disabled.

    I mean "I" like the grid in my face while I'm seated and typing... but other people might not >.>

  12. Let us mark where real objects are in guardian

    For example I always keep my keyboard in the same place in my room. It would be nice to be able to mark where certain objects are in guardian for easy access. A rectangular prism for my keyboard that exists in a fixed place just outside my boundary for example, or a cylinder for my beverage that I could quickly add in or reposition on the fly from the dash menu. These would only be visible when your guardian walls are.

  13. make an option for Guardian wall when close, floor line always on.

    Like title says. Why are wall and line exclusive options? I'd love to have the line always on to know where I'm at, and the wall to come up when close. Right now we can only chose one or the other when neither is ideal

  14. Set maximum height for Guardian system

    I'm sure I'm not the only person who has slammed into their ceiling fan a few times. It would be excellent if the guardian system could be set with a maximum height so that the grid appears if you raise your hands too high. Simply add a step to the guardian setup where the user holds the controller at the max height and presses the trigger.

  15. Profiles for sensor and Guardian setups

    Myself and several other users I've come across have a play area where they can't leave the third sensor in place all the time because it obstructs passage through the room or just looks bad. But, unplugging or moving a sensor currently means having to redo the sensor configuration and Guardian setup.

    I propose a profile system so that we can have multiple configurations saved and easily switch between them depending on how and where I'm playing. If my third sensor is unnecessary for whatever I'm doing, I could then select a profile where the third sensor is disabled and…

  16. Smooth Curvature of Guardian Outline

    I would be nice if Rift would smooth out the outline that we made to made the Guardian Cage a little more aesthetically pleasing. I know that every time I do mine there are some areas where I looked like I sneezed. Unfortunately, I do not have the steadiest of hands.

  17. Easy way to turn guardian sytem on and off

    Please give us an easy way to turn the guardian system on and off. For example F1 = on F2 = off or F1 = both on and off.

  18. Allow more customization of Guardian

    Allowing more customization of the guardian wall would have a positive impact on user experience. Many of us already know the bounds of our playspace, and don't need the thick, bright guardian wall popping up all the time, but also want more notice than the floor square. This is especially true now that the sensitivity of when the wall appears has increased with the Core 2.0 beta. Some welcome customization options would be the following:

    1) Guardian wall sensitivity slider
    2) Guardian wall opacity slider
    3) Guardian wall line thickness slider
    4) Guardian wall color options
    5) Guardian wall texture…

    Hi all! Thanks for submitting and voting for this idea.

    We recently added the ability to adjust the Guardian sensitivity, which you can find in the settings menu while in VR.

    Since this idea is a bit more expansive in terms of what is being asked for, we’re going to leave this open for voting. We hope you enjoy the new Guardian settings that have been added in the meantime!

  19. Inner & Outer Guardian Boundaries for Accessories (+Editor)

    While there are tools out there that allow you to edit the guardian boundary (to make it nice and pretty for the OCD like me), I'd really like to see a built in guardian editor that additionally allows smaller, custom outlines to be placed inside or outside the main guardian boundary.

    As an example, when guardian is showing, I'd like to able to mark additional areas where non wired accessories such as keyboards, mice, etc. may be placed. This would be incredibly useful for those who have a dedicated remote VR room that is not connected to their main gameplay…

  20. Guardian Disable by app/game

    Make it so you can set a default by game so when you play a seated game you dont have to go manually turn it off every time.
