Does anybody have a VR Headset?
This seems interesting vr application for programing.

    I love my valve index, but I would think that the resolution when looking at the text would be too low and the text would look grainy. I prefer looking at screens instead, no matter how many screens u can have in vr

    I’ve considered building this ever since I heard about VR. However, @Ralle has a point: the resolution might be too low.

    Thankfully there are new nanometer scale pixel displays in development which could remedy that issue entirely.

    Soon I might start working entirely in VR 😁

    Does anyone do a lot of reading in VR?

    One day, when text is actually legible I can see it becoming a thing.

    This would be better in Halolens. Should have bought one when I had the money. AR is better than VR. I have a Vive and as everyone else has stated it's hard to read stuff.

    Now I got a reason for memorizing keyboard's keys

    This reminds me of Buddha box from south park. I would really love check it out tho.

    As a VR headset owner : it isn't.

    Grid effect is still a thing, and while it doesn't affect you much when, say, chopping zombies into pieces with a virtual battle axe, it sure does when reading.
    Even the books in Skyrim VR were a PITA.

    I got a Oculus Rift and RTX 2080Ti. Great for gaming and 3D modeling. Not for reading or development afaik

    People were wondering on some other post (too lazy to look for it) why anybody would want a 10,000 dpi screen or whatever it was. Well now you know.

    Hold on a sec, Linux support!?

    @RememberMe I'm wondering why people would want it as a normal monitor as you can't see a difference after 4k anymore from what I've heard.

    But for this, it would be awesome!

    @linuxxx I can see pixels on 4Ks. VR headsets are like looking though window bug screens to me — very difficult to look at unless the image is moving.

    If VR screen resolution improved, I could see doing work in VR, but currently it would just give me a headache. ☚ī¸

    @Root I said after 4k 😄

    And fair enough :/

    So did anyone actually tried to code with VR or you all THINK it wouldn’t work with current headsets and their resolutions?

    @yehaaw Well... You'd have to type completely blind, as you have a VR headset on your eyes.
    That is, unless you use some point and click method to input... Which would be a serious PITA.
    Then there's the issue of resolution, at least on low to mid end devices. Reading larger portions is painful and exhausting to the eyes.

    That said, I never tried coding in VR... But I tried some of the required activities, so I can put two and two together.

    @ilPinguino That’s a shame

    @ilPinguino @yehaaw You two don’t touch type? Really?

    I can’t remember the last time I looked at my keyboard.

    @yehaaw @Root I do. But for the F keys, my Macro keys and the Home /End /Pgup /Pgdn keys I still need to look.

    @Root Really

    @yehaaw i never tried coding with the headset, but even with a index, small text still looks kinda grainy. I don't think looking at code with a vr headset would be a good experience in any way

    @ilPinguino home/end are above the arrows in the middle; page up/down on the right. Delete bottom left. I don’t ever use insert unless I’m sshing and using vim.

    Function keys on my keyboard are in groups of four, so they’re really easy to distinguish.

    The only thing I have trouble with is finding % and ^. I keep getting them backwards for whatever reason.
