As promised, Road to VR’s first DK2 has arrived and, despite my strong urge to rip open the carton like a maniac, I managed restraint long enough to film this short (and somewhat rushed) unboxing video. Apologies for some out of focus moments here – I’ve added annotations to the video where I missed info or blatently forgot what I was talking about.

There’s already a more detailed photo based unboxing to come which will also include my first impressions on the DK2. Early preview: it doesn’t suck! ;)

Don’t forget to let us know what you’d like to see us try in the DK2 as we embark on a weekend news blow-out for the next generation Oculus Rift.

    I can’t get anything other than the demos in the sdk and runtime downloads to work with movement tracking / device detection at all. I’d be interested to see if you have better luck!

      Same here face9, I Can cludge the displays to get something showing on the DK2, but when not in direct mode, seems head-tracking of any kind simply doesn’t work.

      Working on this, let me know if you find anything.

        Will do, speaking to the @Radial_G guys on Twitter, they’ve been fiddling and managed to get the 1.2 demo to work somehow. Apparently disconnecting the camera was part of the puzzle? Go figure…

          Got it! (For Radial G 1.2 anyway) Went to task manager > details, shut down ovr service and also wscript.exe (runs the vb script to restart the service automagically) and started up Radial G- BOOM! Movement tracking! :)
