They might as well do Day 3 to announce confirmation of shipping of headsets and to show off the abovementioned confirmed items which have not been showcased yet such as new lenses, new controller and tracking ring designs, along with the new Index styled comfort accessories and wireless accessory which was meant to be shown on Day 2
The simple upgrade as offered on the Pikmax page (let’s say simple 200$ backers discount) for the 8kx
may be the most interesting, as keeping the stretch goals is making it way easier to sell the old headset on eg. Ebay for a reasonable price.
Which was not covered, at least I didn’t get it:
What about the extra stuff that backers could pledge for?
-The extension cable (which won’t work with the 8kx) 70$
-Hand Tracking 100$ (seems still in the dark)
Is there any chance to add/distribute this money 1:1 for upgrade programm?
The longer cable and hand tracking will still be delivered to anyone to purchased them. There was some delay on the Leap Motion because they were purchased by Ultra Haptics and are now called ultraLeap. They are outside the scope of the stretch goals because they were direct purchase items.
Good to know Pimax has sighted this thead ,
I hope the question summary posted above collated from around the forums and the summary of still undiscussed items which have been confirmed by Pimax provided in the original post in this thread is helpful to address the outstanding questions - which is reportedly incoming shortly in an update according to @PimaxUSA.
As per @PimaxUSA’s comments at the end of the Pimax day 2 stream, any unanswered questions posted on the forums will be noted to be answered very soon so you’ve asked in the right place and you’ll definitely find out soon @Pimel.
It is likely that PimaxUSA can’t comment on the issue of returning the 10m cable now without touching base with his superiors first to find out the official policy for that situation.
Another question - Why are the preorder prices on the preorder page not reflective of the prices shown on the Pimax Day 2 preorder plan slides?
It seems to be $100 more on the website compared to what was shown on the slides with no option to use the downgrade coupon to reduce the price further for those who downgraded from the 8K/8KX to the 5K+.
They also didn’t answer if the 8kX could work with a 2m extension cable or wireless IF in reduced FOV native mode OR upscaling mode, then they introduced two models of the MAS and made things even more confusing!
