Hmm, something happened so they're late or it got suddenly cancelled?

Not sure, I PM'ed Palmer ~20 minutes ago. I am assuming something may have unexpectedly come up.

The tracker is going to be much, much improved for the consumer version. Positional tracking is a must have.

I'd bet my Rift that they plan on having head-mounted camera tracking on the consumer version - with pass through navigational video of course. :D

LOL - that just made my day - totally put what you are going through into perspective!

Get some rest and relax - you deserve it! Plus the kickstarter campaign is almost done - then the fun really begins!

We are still working on it, hard to say for certain at the moment. The tracking output should be exposed, so people could use it for other purposes if they want to!

Good thing Palmer's AMA wasn't today. Reddit is getting slammed right now.
