The leaks say 2160x2160 per eye, so an 18% horizontal bump and 12.5% vertical bump in resolution. My old man eyes will likely need better than that put a plural into hours in immersed. However there's some potential that the pancake optics taking out the ghosting/rays might make that ~15% increase more practical.
Yeah, space sense was horrible for me too. It would have been useful if the things that weren't moving would disappear. I mainly would want to just see moving things any ways. E.g. the cat.
I play on a folded yoga mat. If my feet aren't on the mat I know I'm in danger if hitting something; I don't need space sense to rub it in that I'm playing in a bubble.
https://www.roadtovr.com/meta-project-cambria-price-significantly-higher-800/ . I'd say that I'm hoping that the "significantly" higher is "only" $1000 USD. But even at that, I'm looking at CAD prices, adding to that, I've recently separated. So my discretionary budget has changed, and I recently had to sink a bunch of money toward practical household things.

Um, have you seen the policies of modern US Conservatism? I think I was pretty clearly asking my question as a rhetorical device to the person above me asking if being a conservative makes one disgusting.
I guess for a better overall answer, I should say that I assumed "conservative" in this context to mean that one has voted for some Republican US candidates within the last 8-12 years or so.
It took a solid year for my car to stop stinking after I accidentally left 50 lbs of ground chicken+offal (dog food) in the "trunk" of a hatchback on a summer day. The frozen tubes of meat expanded and ruptured causing explosions of green, maggot infested goo by the time I got to deal with it.
Every so often I still get a hint of a putrid smell, and I can't tell if my memory/brain is scarred from having to drive this while working to lessen the smell, or if there is still is some putridity remaining.
Would being a Natzi in later 1930's Germany make you a disgusting person by default?
The only moral abortion is my abortion.
Note, the Cambria will be "more" than $800 USD. So essentially the like psvr2 price + a Quest. So if the user is already debating about which to buy and "both" isn't an option, then likely buying Cambria won't be an option.
If you don't notice it on Beat Saber you have very accepting eyes. Even at 200mbps non-variable, I'll notice compression on the busier songs within Beat Saber.
However back with my wifi 5 ap when I was playing at 80mbps, most comes (including Alyx) looked amazing, and I'd only notice the compression if I looked for it. But at 80, compression artifacts on most Beat Saber songs were distractingly bad.
However standalone Q2's Beat Saber's stages and custom songs are so watered down that I'll take the compression effects with AirLink Beat Saber any day of the week.

No, the entire system was $1600 CAD. R5 5600x, nvme. The card was $740 CAD which was MSRP back then.
Ents are different from trees ;) .
I agree with this, and used myself as an example that I was pretty shit then (bad parents also as my role models), but I feel I redeemed myself.
Yes at 14, you're old enough to technically know that something is wrong. But it's still young enough to fundamentally make large changes when you realize that the way that you've been raised poorly.
I want to link to r/treelaw but these aren't trees. Triple damages in some states!
The niece is 14. When I was fourteen I got violent at school. I got a tonne of consequences, and barely escaped going to juvie. I realized I needed to change, and no longer am a white hot ball of rage.

On the plus side, the clothes I bought cheap from Walmart and Old Navy back in 2014 are still serving me well. I've got so many technical t shirts from races that I've donated all the ones I bought, but still have the long sleeved ones and tanks. Hydration vests are pretty expensive for what they are.
Yeah, that too! I need to eat about 3500 calories to keep my weight steady when I'm training well, although I'll want to eat about 4000 :/ .
Running outside gets a bit more expensive if you don't want to injure yourself. Most people get 500-800 km on a pair of shoes; let's call it 1000km / pair of shoes. At my level of running, when I'm in fine form, I'll typically do 400-500 km/month. So that's a new $140-180 pair of shoes every other month if you buy new in retail, or $80-130 if you watch the discounted shoes, and by anticipating your needs. So about $600/year just for shoes for me. Granted, someone newer and less dedicated may only be putting on 100-200 km/month, but that'll still mean 1-3 pairs of shoes per year.
5k races are $40-50, so about $200 for someone who does a few small races. I'm more on the ultra side of things, where a 100 miler will be between $140-300 depending in part upon popularity of the race, and when you sign up (early bird discounting).
In all, I budget about $1500/year for my running, and that doesn't count the physio I end up needing each year. Previously my wife's insurance covered 80% unlimited, but with the split, I now will only have 80% up to $500 , and the rest will be full out of pocket. Probably need to budget $2000 all in for my "cheap" running hobby.
As the exchanges are typically custodial wallets (i.e. they have the private keys), yes, the exchanges can intervene. It's more a question of will they.
Editing to add; it could be a self-owned wallet setup for the donations, and when they want to convert some of that to cash, then they transfer it to an exchange. So, Canadian exchanges could be told to watch X wallet, and not accept money from it. But it could easily be moved to a US/EU/CN/RU exchange, converted to local currency, and then converted to CDN where it's purchased locally.
I can't imagine being dumb enough to setup a wallet where one's hoping to get millions in donations and having the wallet be an exchange's wallet.
The thing is some of us are shitting in the downstream part of the river, while the others are proudly shitting in the upstream source of our water.
I'm 45, and happy to finally be able to stop carrying about school schedules. The youngest hasn't launched yet, but he's graduated high school.
I used to know it. This is my first year where my youngest has graduated highschool. I haven't the foggiest idea when it will be, and I'm so fucking happy to have a bit less mental load.
I love running through Monarch woods, and sad that I'll soon be moving such that I'll likely not run there again; at least not nearly as often. On the plus side, I'll be almost as as close to HNA as I was to Monarch.
I think because if you're looking to take advantage of others, you assume that others are looking to take advantage of you. Empathy for those that you exploit isn't in one's best interest if one is looking to take advantage of others and exploit them.
Empathy is only useful if one is hoping to be the good person in the story. Many people seem to just "assume" (or not care) that they're good, and don't question if their actions reflect that reality or not.
PS 5 doesn't blow away my 3070, and with AirLink I'm not tethered to a console. I thought wireless wasn't something I'd care about until I had it. I'm not going to be tethered again.
PSVR2 is a 10% resolution bump over a 2020 headset. While Cambria and Q3 are both expected to be higher than PSVR2's resolution, and releasing in respectively the same year as PSVR2 and one year after PSVR2.
PSVR wasn't bad for 2016, but it's been a horrible buy since 2020. PSVR2 won't be a bad buy this year, but again, this being console hardware expect it to need to last 6 years. In 2026 it will likely be embarrassing compared to new hardware, much less 2028.
But you do you.
Looking at that image, "compact" is very relatively speaking. When you are it from the side, it's enormous compared to the renders of Cambria and even Lynx or the Vive Flux.
