So basically VR on my phone was a bust for a few reasons. Firstly it got too hot and throttled very quickly. Secondly getting the phone clean enough so that I didn't have specs/smudges in front of me was incredibly difficult and I did not have a USB cable long enough to make it viable.
Also, the remote I bought was just as crap as the controllers I tried. None of them would trigger. It also refused to allow me to calibrate it so that I could lie on my back and watch movies for example. I had to sit bolt upright, really annoying.
So I gave up on that.
Then today I was looking at a Deepoon E2 which apparently is a reasonably decent VR headset. However, it costs over £200 and comes with some pretty severe caveats.
Then I found out that for some reason there is a flood of DK2 kits on Ebay for around £160. Like loads of them, seems some one had a clearout. Brand new with the motion camera etc.
I chucked in an offer of £140 expecting it to be refused but to my delight it was accepted.
Desperately trying to keep my desk tidy I got this.
So yeah, I'm ready. I will report back once it's all set up and give my opinions etc
