Complete the Pimax 4K tracking system!
I think the weaknesses of Pimax 4K are the tracking system, including the controller, and quality control.
In fact, the launch of the 8K product has nothing to do with me. This is because I don't have a PC that will work smoothly.
4K products have many advantages. In addition, if you continue to work as hard as you have done so far, you will get a better response from more people.
I think the launch of the 8K product will be the beginning of another adventure. Before you start another adventure, please finish your existing adventure.
Then more people will support your adventure.
Now I'm trying hard to finish my adventure.
The last remaining issue is head tracking.
Completion of head tracking - somewhat heavy. Next time, a little lighter .....
First of all, I respect the conversations discussed here.
Let me tell you the point, hoping that my heart will be heard.
1. Camera-based tracking system is difficult to cover 360 degree area.
In the above video, the four cameras used for this purpose will easily cause USB bandwidth saturation, so you have to add a USB expansion card. So additional costs also arise. The same is true for Oculus Touch.
2. Imagine a lot of laser tracking systems to emerge this year
Valve hopes that their laser tracking system will be introduced to many companies and it seems to be always at work. Take a look at the video below.
Pimax competitor, Deepoon, has demonstrated at CES 2017 a new product with a laser-based tracking system called E-Solaris. But Pimax did not. Pimax will meet many of these competitors this year.
3. Nevertheless, the Pimax 4K has many advantages over these competitors.
Light weight, better brightness than before, 4K display, steady update of Pimax engineers. Now, just add a laser-based tracking system here and you'll complete the puzzle.
4. What I am claiming is that the laser-based tracking system for 8K products under development should also be applied to 4K products.
I know that Pimax did not mention the tracking system for 4K products at CES 2017. So I hope my argument will bring a change to Pimax's plan. If you are already planning, I'd like better. Lol

I have completed head tracking using the easiest and cheapest dk1 tracker among the many orientation devices that work with OSVR. I have now completed the project of adding Pimax 4K's positional tracking and controller via OSVR. I hope that NOLO will provide a simpler installation and satisfaction. But I still believe that Pimax should add their laser tracking system to the Pimax 4K.
Hypereal, a competitor, said in a statement on GDC2017 that it will start a pre-order after launching a product with a laser tracking system, such as Vive, which requires a minimum specification, on March 27. Deepoon also announced a new product, the Deepoon E3, It will be announced on March 28. I would like to believe that Pimax is well prepared for this rapid change.
This year's consumers' greatest interest will surely be VR with laser tracking systems.
In Korea, LG EZ VR is already the most anticipated. Where is Pimax? Hurry up.
