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. 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…

  2. 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!

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. "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.

  6. 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 !

  7. Push To Talk

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

  8. 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…

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  14. 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

  15. Allow toggle key for Guardian (Sim Racing)

    When sim racing, the guardian grid is right in front of my face. I have to go into dash and disable it, but need to re-enable it if I'm playing a standing VR game. This requireIs me to go into settings. It's an annoyance.

  16. 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…

  17. 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 >.>

  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 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.
