Pimax 5K+‘s available on eBay ready to ship!


#1

If anyone is interested I just bough a 5K+ on eBay this morning from a US seller that has 3 units. I bought the last of 3. Then much to my surprise he listed 3 more that are active now. So it seems they bought 6 early pledges (maybe more?) for a profit. Yes, I know I’m an idiot for paying $1900 but luckily at this time I can afford to be one lol! I have a 6DOF motion simulator I built for DCS and racing but more for DCS and flight and I have to experience this with a wide FOV! I will post some videos and a review of the 5K+ on YouTube this weekend using it in VR along with my motion platform if anyone wants to check it out.

Here’s a link to my channel. Please subscribe and I’ll have some cool content up this weekend.

For your case I hope this isn’t a scam, which seems likely give there are only 50 or so delivered to the entire world…

Wait a moment… you paid $1900 for a $699 HMD? :neutral_face:

There is nothing wrong with it. I’ve sold my 5k+ (hmd only) for 1400§ month ago, althrough the device is not yet sent, ive already got my money :slight_smile: People always pay extra to try something before others. Early backers always profit. Same was with oculus and vive.

Hopefully it’s not a scam, but the seller has excellent feedback on eBay. Luckily if anything goes wrong it’s pretty easy to file a claim and get reimbursed if somethings not on the up and up. As far as the price, yes it’s pretty insane, but on the other hand, it’s all about supply and demand. Pledges alone are selling between $1400-2100 now on ebay depending on how low the backer number is and they’re selling! So far the seller has sold 4 units at $1900 so far.

Hey cool another Delorean owner with a Pimax 5K+ :grinning:

You should check out my time machine on my channel. :spy:

I’m interested in if there is any motion sickness with the Pimax and your 6DOF.
I’m planing on buying a 3DOF.
But driving without one is giving me slight sickness. I don’t know if it will be better with motion to trick the brain.

Hey Doc! Awesome time machine brother!! I’ve seen quite a few and one local to me but yours is exceptional. Great job! I’ll be posting some videos hopefully this weekend once my 5K arrives and I get it setup with a single lighthouse on the platform to be able to track the 6DOF motion. Hopefully this will work fine as WMR and Oculus do. As for motion sickness, it actually helps the inner ear coordinate the visual sensations from VR.

Thank you very much. I would like to see your videos with the motion platform.
