Updating directx drivers
And that's much, much easier to do when you have a clear space in front of you and can reach out to the same place every time to grab what you're looking for. You can use the edges of the pad to ‘center’ yourself as you start to wander around in VR.
Similarly, it's nice to have a cleared space to place the headset when you take it off. This won't really be necessary for the Rift's launch, though.
A little while ago, my German Specialist SE End User Computing colleague, Valentin Allert, sent me a document on how to optimize a Windows 7 virtual desktop in a VDI/VMware View environment, for better performance.
He summarized the information he received from within VMware but also information he collected from Proof of Concepts.
For seated VR games—pretty much the only games available through the Oculus Store right now—it's nice to have a swivel chair.You don't need much space at all for the Rift: it ships with one sensor ideal for sitting or standing (mostly) still, and the Oculus Rift launch games are built around the Xbox One controller. And trust us, you want to—nothing sells the feeling of immersion more than walking in virtual reality.Since the Oculus Rift has the simpler setup process, we'll start there.The sensors are too heavy to mount to the wall using some kind of sticky material (and we wouldn't recommend heavy-duty glue), so keep in mind that you may want to purchase a camera mount like this one if you don't have a convenient bookshelf to place each sensor on.
The sensors use a standard 1/4-20 thread (same as your average tripod).Speaking of cables: make sure there’s a clear path between your PC and where you play your VR games, or you could be sweeping mugs and tchotchkes off your desk like an excited Golden Retriever with an out of control tail.
