      Wonder if you took a movie that was (partially) filmed in real Imax (not Liemax), like The Dark Knight, and viewed it at 8k 24p on the 8K headset, if you would feel like you're watching it in a real, old school Imax theatre. Hmmmmm.

            Instead of using a rolling chair looking like an idiot for that shoes thingy, maybe have something around your body that stop you from moving.

                        If you do review the Pimax 8k, can you try reading documents or writing text in it? It seems like being able to work with text might be its strong suit.

                          curious to know if I can use a keyboard, mouse and view my desktop on this? I have no desire whatsoever to play video games, but rather would like to have a virtual workspace for my desktop

                                    8K upsampling is simply not 8k, poorly advertised by Pimax. I still don't know which headset to go for.

                                                With technology getting smaller vr. This is crap. Far to big. If vr keeps getting bigger it will fail.

                                                  Not really, 80hz is good enough and Oculus dropped their new headsets 72hz.

                                                    Well the index went for 144hz and that is amazing. Not to say 72hz isn't passable.

I'm looking for something with like double the resolution of the original Rift, a bit more FoV say 10 to 20 degrees more at least, and inside out tracking, don't care about wireless capability or eye tracking. OLED is a must too.
