I think it would be VERY wise to send an hmd to the simracing youtuber Jimmy Broadbent.
Today he reviewed “The McLaren Edition Vive Pro” that HTC (thanks for sending him lighthouse sensors ) sent him.
He complains that the head strap adjustment knob sticks out too much for his racing seat which will not be a problem with the Pimax.
But best of all, he complains that the FOV is too small. He says: “Something that I’m a little bit disappointed in, though, is that the FOV is pretty much the same as the Oculus Rift”
He really emphasizes the insane price of the Pro (and especially the McLaren edition) and says that 700-750£ had been a price point to consider.
That is why you really should send him the 5K+ instead of an 8K. Reading gauges is another good reason to send the 5K+.
Do it, Pimax! This guy has 200000 subscribers on youtube and you can show them, Jimmy, HTC and Oculus the virtual horizon in almost all its glory.
