Early last year, we published a 4-part “Oculus Roomscale” series, outlining best practices to add a third sensor to take your Rift experience to the next level. We wanted to make it easy for new Rift owners to track down this useful information, so today, we’re bringing together links to all four posts and a brief overview of the topics covered—together in the same place.

Part 1: Tips for Setting Up a Killer VR Room

  • Sensor Placement
  • Tracking Volume
  • Wall Mounting

Part 2: Balancing Bandwidth on USB

  • Host Controllers
  • Theoretical v. Practical Bandwidth
  • USB 2.0 v. USB 3.0

Part 3: Identifying Host Controllers

  • Experimenting with Configurations
  • Addressing Bandwidth Issues
  • Step-By-Step Walkthrough

Part 4: Extra Equipment

  • USB Extension Cables
  • USB Cards
  • HMD Cable Extensions

Whether you got a Rift over the holidays, are researching a potential purchase, or just want to explore a future upgrade to your current VR setup, we hope you’ll find what you’re looking for in the Oculus Roomscale series.
