Left Handed / Right Handed improvement ideas.
Let me start by saying I LOVE this item - and already got about 20 people to buy it... that being said - I have two simple thoughts - that I believe would make people's experiences a bit more enjoyable - -
1 - as a left handed person - trying to figure out how to switch every game to be for left handed people is strange.. why not just have it in the profile - just like your avatar - to select handedness. Then just like games pull avatar info - it can pull handedness info - and that solves that problem everywhere.
and 2 - while you render the controls on screen - the most common thing I have seen - is people picking them up incorrectly. Why not render an L and an R on the actual controller. so there's no question - the on screen render of each hand controller should always say L or R on it. and that eliminates that issue that's really it.
I would think these are both easy fixes.. I would love it if I actually heard a response :D
Edit: After some more time I'm fine with this as-is, most programs will switch if you pull the left trigger at a menu, or have options/settings. OP's suggestion of profile setting is still the best idea though. For some reason I wish my left hand was the blue Saber !!!
New to VR, just picked up the Oculus Quest. I'm actually shocked to see how this is handled right now.
In something where you need to interact physically, it is just too much of an oversight for us lefties.
As OP said, left / right handed should be an avatar setting that is inherited by each app. We are real people not a myth.
It's so frustrating to load an app or demo that doesn't acknowledge us. I guess I just didn't expect VR to have prejudices, at least not this far into its maturity. For shame !
