I do hope it all comes sooner than later, as I think everyone hopes for too :)

Gamescon is this week, will see what news they have on Friday!

If anyone is ever around in TS I am usually idle in the SC channel when I'm free if anyone wants to chat. But I'm sure more people will be active when 3.0 drops.

Who all watched the livestream? I liked what I saw, sure they had some hiccups but it's nice to see it all coming together. I liked seeing the new mobiglass in action and didn't expect the facial tracking software which was pretty cool.

I did not see the livestream but I checked out the facial tracking. It will be interesting to see how that works out. It certainly has the potential to impact the immersion aspects of the game.

I agree and I'm sure a lot of content creators will use it to make more videos too. I can see this as an option in games in the future and pretty cool. I will definitely check it out since they said any webcam will do. I want to see how accurate their head tracking is with that software. I was thinking about getting Track IR but if their facial tracking software can get nearly as good I might skip out on Track IR.

Actually, just watched the facial tracking again from Gamescon and a Track IR video in SC. Track IR looks to get a lot more range to where you can almost turn your view all the way around (180) whereas the facial tracking seems ok to turn left right (about 75). It seems like once the facial tracking loses the points on your eyes nose face turning left right then it stops. Maybe this can be adjusted to be more sensitive.

Will keep up to date on it to see how it plays out.

Other than for gesturing, can someone explain to me the purpose of head tracking? Unless you are wearing VR gear, or otherwise have a screen attached to your head that moves with you, what good does it do if the perspective moves with your head?

Head tracking can be useful when your dogfighting. You can turn your head and track that extra bit in the canopy to your 3 and 6 o'clock, the other use it to slave gimbaled weapons to head tracking so they follow your eyes essentially

I purchased TrackIR when Elite Dangerous released. I think you would be surprised how well it works with just a regular monitor setup

Track IR and Voice command are going to be very important if you want to sword fight in space.
