Add Clock / Time back to Dash
Please add the Clock / Time back into Dash.
If I remember correctly we had that in the Void and I usually lose total track of time when inside VR.
Currently there is no way to tell the time without putting down the HMD.
I not only want a clock in Home - Dash is important because you can quickly open that up and check the time. Maybe make it a pinnable Window (wink wink nudge nudge) native to Oculus without adding another program / window from your desktop :-)
Thanks for this submission. The current date and time can be found on the far right end of the Dash bar. If you would like clock objects within Home, the submission for that idea can be found here: https://rift.uservoice.com/forums/918556-oculus-rift/suggestions/32543971-clocks. Thanks!

there is an icon on the right of the dash that looks like a few sliders, hover your cursor over that
Probably have several options for clocks to place in your home. Grandfather, cuckoo clock, digital clock, etc. This object should be a smart object that you can setup time zone info and such. It should also turn into a tool when you point at it and gives you an option for additional information like a calendar, weather, or whatever.

There should definitely be some sort of wristwatch or a clock item that can be pinned to a wall.
Essential feature in my opinion and probably one of the easiest to implement. The clock should be everywhere, at least visible with just one touch of the Oculus home button.
Agreed, although there is a clock a bit hidden, the time should be more visible. It's VR, not a casino!

Cant we put a digital time on the bottom of the Watch on your Left Wrist. That way if you want to know the time, hit the Oculus Button and look at your wrist, like you would do naturally anyway.
+1 for seeing the clock immediately without hovering the belt icon.

Yes a thousand times over. I always used the void to quickly check the time before.
Oh there is a clock in Dash, you just have to click on the info menu on the far right. I still would prefer the see the clock right away without any clicks like it was before.
