Add a more aggressive guardian option and make it easy to switch between guardian modes
Sometimes the guardian system's light blue grid is too gentle when I'm quickly moving my arms and body in certain games (like ping pong, sword fighting, etc.). It feels like a suggestion not a warning and it's easy to reach past the bounds. In certain games, it would be very helpful for peace of mind if the guardian turned more forceful when reaching past the bounds for certain games - it could turn the grid red, sound a loud audio alarm, vibrate the out of bounds controller, or begin occluding vision completely. If it feels like a warning I will pull back more instinctually. I want it to break presence if I'm on the verge of hitting my laptop which would break presence even more.
As part of a recent software update, we added the ability to adjust the sensitivity of Guardian. These options can be found within the settings menu while in VR and will allow you to adjust for your desired experience. Thanks for submitting this idea!

This request particularly applies to games that may involve lunging motions. Also, I found this: OpenVR Advanced Settings Overlay at https://github.com/matzman666/OpenVR-AdvancedSettings which also has an option to pause the game when in the danger zone (perhaps by bringing up the Oculus menu).
