Oh yeah, and about the DK2, when I bought it I really got the feeling the consumer version would be out the same year and that I would have wasted my money :P Nope! Sure glad I did get it now :o

Oculus announced it with pix of the final HMD... The lenses look huge
Similar to those by Wearality.. Yes?

Now that we have a date, the next million dollar question is... what is that little slider for :)

Maybe it's for lens distance in the horizontal axis.

Those lenses sure look big, or is it just the angle the shot was taken from ?

I wonder if it'll be teathered as Oculus did state a sitting & or standing experience contradicting their original statements how the Rift would be geared towards a seated expereince. Sounds like they've been spooked by Valve's Lighthouse.

0.6 includes the following major changes:
Compositor service
Layers
Removal of application-based distortion rendering
Simplification of the API

The compositor service moves distortion rendering from the application to the OVRServer process. This is an architectural change that enables features like layers and other performance and quality improvements in the future.

Layer support allows an application to send multiple independent render targets to the compositor. For example, you might render the heads-up display, background, and game space each to their own separate layer. Each layer can have a different size, resolution, and update rate, which can be used to improve performance and rendering quality, particularly around text

By removing "distortion rendering".. Is this the pre-warping that Palmer introduced to reduce lens warp ?? If so they're making a move towards lenses similar to Wearality as Wearality does not require pre-warping of images.

The image still needs to be warped, ultimately. All that is changing is where the process takes place.

At the default eye-target scale, the Rift’s rendering requirements go much higher: around 400 million shaded pixels per second.

I hope around 400 means 414 million shaded pixels per second. Does a correct guess get me a preorder :roll:
