Glaucoma Predator Posted March 13, 2020 Share Posted March 13, 2020 While the Cosmos has a nice screen and the idea of inside out tracking is appealing, the performance of the device is just not acceptable. Being a day one adopter of VR and having bought and used the original Vive, this is nowhere near the the performance I expect from a VR HMD. Yes the gradual improvements of inside out tracking are welcome, but the performance will never compare to light house tracking. HTC is trying hard to remedy the problem but the only way to do that would be to do some sort of external tracking. This is why... Maybe if HTC offers good pricing on upgrading the Cosmos to Light House tracking I might buy it and send the HDM to my brother but for now it will be sitting in a box collecting dust. Because for the life no one want's this thing and I have tried to sell it for the last month and a half. HTC if you are reading this, yes you have improved the tracking. But you need to go a step further, the default controllers are nice and going to light house tracking with the elite package as a consumer you are taking two steps forward one step back. The controllers that come with the current package are far superior to the default HTC VIVE and HTC VIVE PRO controllers. They are even capable of competing with the knuckle controllers. So my suggestion to the Management/Engineering in the VR department is instead of light houses sell 2 custom 90+ hz external cameras with a good FOV that are capable of of low light and bright light performance. Make them pair with wifi, or bluetooth. Then in conjunction with the inside out tracking on the HMD you can get your algorithm right. You will have many points of reference for tracking at this point. Camera sensors are pretty cheap these days, every smartphone has one.
