By early 2017 the size limitations of my domestic PCVR space sparked a thought – how big could SteamVR tracking actually scale?
Only one way to find out…fate aligned with the offer of unlimited access to a large retail store in London’s Canary Wharf area.
I packed up my HTC Vive and PCVR rig and somehow got onto a local train.
The store had a number of different large spaces that could easily be made empty for early morning sessions before the store opened at 10am.
The answer? 6.36 metre X 6.36 metre with sync cable (before tracking failed). This equated to a 9 metre diagonal distance between the two lighthouse Tower mounted base stations.
