Just got my PiMax 5k+ HMD


No time to play yet :slightly_frowning_face: but had a peek in the box. They even put in an Australian-pin plug pack for me! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


I pre ordered the 5k+ a few weeks ago!
Share some first impressions with us! I wasn’t super impressed with the 4k I ordered due to its lack of Fresnel lenses (frenel?) But they have decided to use them in the 5k+ and 8k.

I’ve been saving Skyrim and a trip to Sagittarius (Elite Dangerous) until a wider FOV headset arrived.

Can’t wait!


Can you mix with Vive trackers? Interested in the 8K,

Hap ?;O)


Yes, you can use Vive trackers with it.


Any luck with it yet?


Still in the box, I’m afraid. I’m too busy for my own good this week :slightly_frowning_face:
(The new-year’s kidney stone didn’t help either! :cold_sweat:)


So… how 'bout now?


Also, did you get one with the dots or without the dots?


No joy on Linux :sob:
Linux support was mentioned in the speil back when I signed up for the device, but it appears to have been lost along the way :face_with_raised_eyebrow: so the device will have to be shelved for now. Disapointing, but that is a known risk of investing in pre-market things. I did get to tax-deduct it, though.

I might get to use it next year when I get my* new building at work, which does include a VR lab and will likely use Win10 PCs.

_* not literally my building, but I have an office there, and an electronics lab and classroom to tech-support.
