Tonight's adventures. More Tetris Effect, and another bike ride.

It's hard to find good bike ride vids. Low-res vids spoil the illusion, whilst others are ruined by "head cam" placement.
If you add the camera to your head, then every time you look around, you move the camera.
That's a big no-no.
The best ones I've seen are mounted on some kind of stick, mounted to the bike.
Those work infinitely better.

As well as that, the browse section has some 3D videos from the SloMo guys. These aren't 360 vids, only stereoscopic 3D.
The effect works alright, but you lose the "in and out" head tracking, making everything a little sickness inducing... feeling rather queasy after a 9 minute video. Bleurgh.

The 360 vids don't "feel" 3D, so my head seems to be able to cope better with those. *shrugs*

Yeah the videos are pretty crappy.

I did read about a proper VR bike game... Not sure if it's any good though https://www.oculus.com/blog/exercise-around-the-world-vzfit-releases-on-the-quest-platform-today/

Yeah, there a number of "you wanna get fit? Subscribe, you fat bastard!" apps out there.

Wander is nice enough. It's a Google Street View VR thing, and it works well enough. You can even switch dates of the street view imagery, if they're have it.
My house can be either 2020 or 2008, for example. Neat!!

Quite static though. Not exactly a "wander"
