    Running a 8K headset on a Aero 15X 1070Max-Q version. HEadset vertical placement on the face is important and I have found FOV edge distortion is effected by how close the HMD is on your face. If I push it gently in then there is less edge distortion.
    Some users have called for distortion profile adjustment and maybe that is required as face structures change.
    As for the speed vs resolution argument. I have been using the headset in Il2 BoX series and experimenting with fps speed but in a nutshell, for me, low speed in fps as indicated in game does not seem to give me nausea issues. I am comfortable to run the sim at 30+ fps and I think this is the case as head movement with the HMD is smooth. You notice the fps in objects passing you ingame like aircraft but when turning your head in cockpit, the experience visually is smooth.
    Pimax is closed beta testing BrainWarp which is their version of Asynchronous Rendering (1 eye followed by the other) and this should effectively allow for doubling of fps in headset. For mid power systems this will really help. All in all, the headset is very good as it stands and has cemented my VR skeptical self into being a VR sim fan. The immersion in BoX is brilliant and the 1 to 1 scale and head tracking brings the sim to a new level of experience. Never to be played on flat screen again.

    I still expect people to trigger the same problems VR has always triggered. Headaches, eye strain, vertigo, dizziness, migraines/slight seizures if prone to either.
    They need a new medium to create the experience.
    However if this really does reduce nausea over the short term, that's good, but how about prolonged exposure. Some symptoms only occur over prolonged exposure, both in a single sitting and over repeated usage.
    You require a MUCH longer exposure to be sure the dizziness elements aren't present. A good hour should do. Though I'm assuming the eye tracking is the direction they're going in, as most of the problems are likely due to eye strain and refocusing due to keeping track of two orientations: game and real life.
    Hopefully this really does improve the experience in long-term gaming. I would prefer something more akin to sleeping in a chair-bed and allowing the mind to connect, but perhaps that's too dangerous. Belief in death if it happens in-game...which could be possible given the brain cannot distinguish between practice in the mind and physical practice, alongside other visualizations...not that there has been any proven death in sleep = death in life scenario, but it wouldn't be like one would simply awaken in their own mind into conscious thought. Should be interesting once that type of hookup occurs...but given the player is aware they're in a game world, that might assure few problems, though I would wonder if stress levels are higher under that form of gaming medium.

    I think you are wrong about the framerate going above 90Hz
    90Hz is good and what really need improvement is resolution.
    I play most of my VR games at 90 FPS but I don't mind playing slow games that really benefit from ultra graphics in 45FPS.
    Elite Dangerous is not impacted by 45FPS or other games like hellblade, chronos....
    Anything that isn't played in roomscale with touch controller can be played at 45FPS comfortably I think. I play assetto corsa at 90 but it's also playable at 45 and honestly if I had the choice of higher resolution with 45 FPS I would pick it.
    + you shouldn't be allowed to say things like that if you don't have at least 1000 hours of vr

    Those VR shoes are so dumb! Not the idea, the price. For about the same price you can get much more fully developed versions of this tech like the Omni-Walker. This is a really stripped down, basic version of that... but costs the same?!?! Why!? If these were like $80 they would be a real product people might want, but I can't see anyone paying more for shoe pads then their headset WTF!

    I'm rather disappointed that they are focusing on bells and whistles, rather than things like frequency. I bought a Rift DK2 back in the day, and a FOVE VR a few years back too, both of which caused me debilitating headaches and nausea after only about 10 minutes of use. I have no idea how common or uncommon that is, but I have READ that better frequency and FOV could reduce these effects so I would hope VR headset makers would shift their focus in that direction eventually.

    VR still has a long way to go, but as far as the public can see, Pimax is definitely in the forefront compared to Oculus and HTC who are pretty much using preexisting technology to make minor improvements. It sounds like I'm riding Pimax's dick, and in reality, I am. I respect their courage to actually make a large improvement and fail in the process.

    I got to try Cybershoes at TGS, and while it's not a perfect movement solution, it's better than basically anything else on the market at anything like similar price point. You get used to some of the quirks pretty quickly, and once you do, it feels pretty natural. You do lose some precision compared to the way you'd normally walk, but for games like Skyrim and Doom, it's more than sufficient. And even at $400, that's five times cheaper than cheapest omni treadmills, while providing similar degree of freedom of locomotion.

      +Sagara Sousuke those are so demanding graphics wise that the frame rate suffers since it has to double the output and why they exist but are not as good as the pancake version. The best games right now are the scary ones like Paranormal Activity, Resident Evil, Rush of Blood because you really feel like you are there and it's much smaller areas to render. Any game with bow and artows are amazing too.
