Wall Street Journal
Oculus has built a surprisingly fun VR game console, the $400 Quest, that puts you inside a game and lets you move around. WSJ's David Pierce takes the new device for a spin in the park, where there’s plenty of space to play. Photo/Video: Emily Prapuolenis/WSJ

How many of you think his headset dont work anymore

Real Problem:

Non-visibility of the IR lights in the controllers by sunlight (too much natural IR light).
It needs stronger IR light in the controllers for use outside.

Protection against magnifying glass effect:
There is a sensor that detects whether you wear the glasses.Put a mechanical shutter between the lens and the screen.
Closed, if you do not carry the quest.
It is so easy.

I would buy a "outdoor mod".
* Stronger IR-lights: Best sulution, a sensor that controls the intensity (because power consumption).
* Shutter between lens and screen.

He is a technology columnist but doesn’t even though the most important rule of the quest which is DONT PLAY IT OUTSIDE

Is he brain dead did he not do any research. First he is destroying the headset and basically telling any consumer who only watches one video before buying that they should go outside and destroy their headset. Oh and don't compare this to the wii. That is just disrespectful

Worst review ever! Full of lies and poor product safety knowledge. How on earth people follow you is a mystery. For a start none of the areas you chose would work for seemless gaming, so thats false advertising. You need complete unbroken shade to play. Also no mention how dangerous the direct light is to lenses is. Literally can break the screen! You should go back to your day job and if this is your day job get a night job instead lol
