I will be there at this event tomorrow to try a Pimax product for the first time!
I used my Oculus cv1 now for 2 years, mostly for simracing.
Never tried another Vr headset.
Became vr enthousiast along the way trying a lot of games.
I was following this technology as much as possible and i was waiting for a headset that will bring a big step up from my oculus.
I guess it will blow my mind like others experienced.
I will try to capture a video of my reaction.
I bought the Pimax 8K X deluxe audio edition, so i will focus on this product more.
Maybe someone have some good questions i can ask them!
I will try to test many things as possible in my time.
Im happy to be part of this community here and im even excited as everyone to get this product at home!
greetings from holland
PIMAX VR DAY 01-12-2019 GOUDA
Im back with news from the Pimax day in Gouda.
Great setup there in a room 5x5m i guess, 4 setups from Pimax with Earofly fs2, Elitedangerous with a hotas , Assetto Corsa with a wheel and pedals and pistol whip.
All the headset were the 8K plus versions but with different comfort designs.
Remember my background, so this was my first time using a Pimax headset.
Everything i wrote is compared to my Oculus Rift CV1.
I tried my first time the 8k plus with the new comfort kit they made and then i tried Earofly fs2.
It was just "WOOW’’! I had no words in the beginning, i was in trance how clear everything is and how wide the field of view is. I saw absolutely no screen door effect. I could read the text inside the cockpit from 1meter distance.
The second try i did Elite Dangerous. I say it just again, it looks freaking awesome! you can read everything very good.You can just enjoy the graphics of the game way more better. In therms of the colours it was very good and for me it looked better with this headset. The black level is even as black as in the Oculus rift and not greyish or something. I focused this time on the comfort kit and it felt really great and i had no issues, well balanced weight so no worries there.
The third time i tried Assetto Corsa. Because im a simracer this was important one for me ofcourse.
I said to myself this is just what i was waiting for, because its so clear you can read everything so easy on your dashboard.
I tried the normal view inside Pitool and also the Large view. On both views i saw no distortion at the end.
But i have also negative things.
The biggest problem for me was to let my eyes getting used to the screens. I think it was the 3D effect or the technik they are using but i had a headache in the beginning. After playing around 10minutes it was becoming less of a problem.
I hope this will go away then after playing more with it. Maybe someone had the same issue and can tell me how they solved it.
That was all i tested so far.
I had a great time there.
The people there are very nice, and they are sharing the same passion and its great to see!
If someone have questions just ask me and i will try to answer them based on what i saw.
Thanks Pimax and VRSpace for this awesome experience!
