thedrone Posted April 3, 2022 Share Posted April 3, 2022 The recent updates (particularly with regard to VBS) have been great, but as good as the Focus 3 currently is, there's always room for improvement. Here are some features I would like to see included in the future: Hardware New batteries should come with a sillicone cap for the charging port, to prevent damage from sweat. A stray drop could easily find its way to the exposed interals, causing a short. I understand there is now a narrow face gasket option (very nice), but I think a different kind of material other than pu-leather would also be much appreciated. I'd like some external Vive-branded IR illuminators to enable tracking in a completely dark environment. Software Please allow us to disable the controller prompt without defaulting to hand tracking in SteamVR. This gets awkward really quickly when you're trying to use a gamepad or keyboard and mouse (for seated games like Tetris or Bigscreen) and it randomly recognizes your hands as input devices. This is currently my biggest peeve with the device. There is a way to disable high performance mode (and reduce fan noise and airflow as a result), but I'd like a third option: fanless operation within a reduced thermal envelope for passive content consumption. Maybe combine with a 3DOF mode to eliminate tracking overhead and decreased brightness. I'd like to see the Focus 3 as a supported device in Viveport, and Viveport extended as a platform for XR2 content. Alternatives to the default Vive Reality Systems 2.0 would be nice. Better browser support is becoming a necessity. Native resolution streaming support in VBS would be much appreciated for increased text clarity.
