You'd say a company would learn along the way. I'm not sure if that goes for Pimax. CES was a disaster for example, repeating past mistakes. But even so, Pimax has a LOOOOONG way to go, you're talking about a company who hasn't even shown they can make good working wireless controllers or have mastered the art to deliver a product without dust/hairs inside the lenses or know how to solve HMD drift. Really the basics out there. And you're comparing a trillion dollar company like Apple with extremely smart engineers, best of the field out there, with huge design teams and extreme quality control to a company like Pimax who seem to have more like 2-3 hobbyist engineers who are asking questions on internet forums to learn stuff? You sir, are going to be disappointed.
You see, that's why I'm really happy with this news. With Apple you KNOW they're going to deliver a great product. They're not going to release some half baked product. With Pimax it's a huge gamble. They actually might get it right, who knows. But I think most likely there will be quite a few problems and downsides with both the hardware and the software. I'm just hoping they'll get the basics right this time, so correctly working IPD adjustment, correctly working controllers etc and I'd be happy.
