New to Fove!

    I am also new, and I think you want to request to test the Steam driver. As I understand it, steam has to be able to recognize you have a VR headset and until you have that driver I don't think you can do much with it. At least I haven't been able to do much other than look around in the galaxy visual used for calibration. If anyone else has some suggestions for how people can fully experience their Fove I would love to hear it!

    Here's the sign up for SteamVR Beta:

    Hi Sean, 

    I was not able to calibrate the thing. Any suggestions on how to do that?

    SteamVR recognises the headset: "the headset is connected and tracking", but as Sean says, it's pretty useless until we get that fabled SteamVR driver.

    Hi Kunal,

    Have you been able to get your FOVE up and running?

    You can always drop an email to if you're having issues.

    Hi Guys,

    I am new to Fove too...

    I was able to go thru the calibration process, and saw the new Star field in my headset.

    I applied for the Steam driver, and got it yesterday.  I will probably set it up tonight.

    Hate to say this had been so far a major buzz kill... I have been a Oculus user for the last two years, and the Fove is very lacking in comparison.

    Anyway... I hope the Fove goes some where in the future.... cause I am close to re-boxing it, and resetting up my Oculus or buying a new Vive Pro (as seen at CES).

    Happy VR'ing... my fellow travelers.


    PS - FOVE - Do you offer refunds, for unsatisfied customers?

    OK... I got my answer... and yes.. I am consumer and not developer....that's ok...


    Is FOVE 0 for consumers just like other consumer-ready VR headsets, such as Oculus Rift CV1 and HTC VIVE?


    FOVE 0 is specifically for developers who want to create innovative eye-tracking VR content. It is not fully ready for general consumer use yet, mainly due to the limited amount of content and the lack of supported platforms.

    Hey Guys... when will Fove be ready for Consumer? or will it?

    VIVE Pro is looking more and more tempting... LOL
