Oculus Go
« on: January 06, 2019, 10:48:44 AM »
So I finally decided to buy the oculus go. Been having a lot of fun with it. Playing a game called"Dark Days."

Now I need to learn to develop for it. I know you can use Unity or Unreal, but I want to learn the native code. Supposedly it uses the Gear VR sdk. Having a hard time finding tutorials, everything I see in a Google search uses Unity.

Well,I have to work today, so I'll update when I can.

Yes, it uses the Oculus SDK ( Gear VR SDK ) but there are a couple of differences.

1.. The Go can support a 72hz refresh rate
2.. The Go has Fixed Foveated Rendering which is easy to enable in your apps. This feature renders the edges of the eye at lower resolution resulting in a general rendering speed boost.

For native coding Oculus have this which includes the native SDK, how-to guide and also samples. Should be enough to get you up and running.
Mac mini ( 2018 / 2020 ), 3 GHz 6-Core Intel Core i5, 16 GB 2667 MHz DDR4, 1TB NVMe, eGPU Radeon Pro 580 8 GB, LG Ultragear 27GL83A-B 27 Inch
Mac mini (2020 ), M1 SoC, 8 GB LPDDR4, 512GB NVMe 
Commodore VIC-20, 1.1Mhz MOS 6502 CPU, 5KB RAM, VIC ( 6560 ) GPU

Until the next time.
