  1. Option to change headset “cursor” placement in view

    I’ve noticed that while playing certain games that allow you to select things by looking, primarily Elite Dangerous, the current “cursor”, for lack of a better term, is about 2 cm higher than my normal resting center of vision. This means I have to tilt my head down to look straight at it, rather than normally look straight ahead. Its rather uncomfortable. I suggest a sort of calibration where you look at a dot in space at your normal resting look-forward position, and press a button similar to ‘wheres the front’ when setting up guardian. This can set your normal…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Push To Talk

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

  6. Facial membrane to track either an emotion or facial shape

    A facial silicone membrane that would allow oculus to track emotions and or the way you’re looking at something.

    Your facial shape could also be tracked and replicated within games thus giving a more realistic experience not only for a single player gaming experience but from a multiplayer perspective where they’ll be able to see how you react to things within a certain game.

  7. 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…

  8. 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

  9. 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…

  10. 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!

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. "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.

  14. 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 !

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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…
