VR has been discussed a bit on here before so I thought I'd post this awesome deal. You get the Bundle for basically $499 (assuming you'll use the gift card). Normally the Vive alone in $599 but you are getting the deluxe headstrap for that lower price too! I'm thinking of buying it just to keep the extras. The Vive sells on eBay for $500 on it's own. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B077YC893R/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_apa_ckVlAbE39VF0W
I was reading about a desktop 'server' and wireless client (phone) software called 'Trinus' If you have a Smartphone like my Moto G then you know the absence of a gyroscope limits its potential as a VR display device when using VR goggles. The following text describes my experience with 'Trinus'. With Trinus installed on my Windows 10 laptop I can stream any desktop display (360 video, games , whatever is displayed) through a wireless router to the client device for VR vewing of the (left/right eye) split video stream. A 360 video stream position can be controlled with keyboard keys or (I've read) with a gyro mouse (a mouse with a gyroscope). I'm currently shopping for a VR headset to hold the phone (wireless Trinus client). Watching 360 video from YouTube in VR should be an easy task for Trinus. At low resolution settings and appropriate stream compression settings my full screen desktop 360fly videos (circular and equi-rectangular) can be watched on the client display (the smartphone).
