I was just writing a wish list last night about the things I’d like to see moving forward with the Gear VR. One of the things I wanted in a lot of the apps (and home screen) was the ability to see outside the closed confines of the HMD. For me it’s not claustrophobia, but it’s not knowing what’s out there in the real world, while I experience the VR one.
Interesting to see that Vive has incorporated this into the release. I’m guessing that this would allow you to input the various features of your room without hand measuring. I can imagine some interesting uses for it.
