    Clicking on Adjust
    and then you can drag the corners
    of the window
    But the Lens would be capable of doing a 2 hand pinch gesture
    I mean thats way more natural
    Cristian Medina
    @tryexceptpass_twitter
    Yeah I see
    Towa0003
    @Towa0003
    So I think Meta does the natural approach with gestures
    We'll see how that works out
    Cristian Medina
    @tryexceptpass_twitter
    I'm also not sure you could do away with a kybd / mouse
    Right
    Towa0003
    @Towa0003
    In my opinion a good solution would be a "sitting" mode and a "standing/ walking" mode
    Because when you are sitting on a desk it makes sense with keyboard
    It's just stupid sitting here and making gestures
    But on the walk that changes
    And on the walk you don't want your vision blocked with some UI stuff, which is not a problem when you are sitting
    Cristian Medina
    @tryexceptpass_twitter
    That's a good point
    Towa0003
    @Towa0003
    Yeah I hope that I can collect a lot of stuff like this for my thesis
    Cristian Medina
    @tryexceptpass_twitter
    Are there enough sensors on these things to tell when u stand and have to transition?
    Towa0003
    @Towa0003
    Sure the lens knows exactly where you are
    I mean it creates a mesh of the room you are in on the fly
    so that you can place your 2d Views on walls and stuff like this :D
    Not sure what the meta2 will be capable of
    Cristian Medina
    @tryexceptpass_twitter
    Ah yes, I forgot about that. That's the only one that does it right?
    Towa0003
    @Towa0003
    Well project tango can do that too
    Cristian Medina
    @tryexceptpass_twitter
    I think the meta isnt there yet with the sense of your surroundings
    Towa0003
    @Towa0003
    But it's not reall AR
    Cristian Medina
    @tryexceptpass_twitter
    Ha! Them too, haven't heard much from that vamp in a while
    Towa0003
    @Towa0003
    Yeah but I think they made this technology big
    Cristian Medina
    @tryexceptpass_twitter
    Agreed
    Towa0003
    @Towa0003
    And their tracking almost worked as good in 2014 as Microsofts does today
    Cristian Medina
    @tryexceptpass_twitter
    Will be nice when ppl get over the gaming implications and start applying it in other places more often
    One of the main reasons I started down this path is that I wanted to plug it into some AI work I'm doing
    Towa0003
    @Towa0003
    Okay cool, I'm working on an industry showcase at the moment, but this will be mostly simple 2D stuff since it's hard to get the 3D stuff in it
    And I already like the VR 3DEditors for building 3D models and stuff
    Cristian Medina
    @tryexceptpass_twitter
    Neat, haven't used them yet
    Towa0003
    @Towa0003
    Me neither, I guess you need a Vive since they got that controller
    Cristian Medina
    @tryexceptpass_twitter
    Yeah that's right. You know I haven't tried that occulus controller either, wonder how intuitive that feels
    Towa0003
    @Towa0003
    The new touch controller?
    Does it even work with the DK2?
    Cristian Medina
    @tryexceptpass_twitter
    Ya
    Towa0003
    @Towa0003
    or just with the release
    Cristian Medina
    @tryexceptpass_twitter
    No
    Release
    Towa0003
    @Towa0003
    Okay
    Cristian Medina
    @tryexceptpass_twitter
    This is a hard problem to solve and the wrong solution could stiffer adoption considerably.
    Towa0003
    @Towa0003
    Okay I need to go, I hope to see you soon. Maybe we can discuss some ideas together when I come up with some ideas for my thesis :D
    Which problem? controller?
    Cristian Medina
    @tryexceptpass_twitter
    Yeah no worries, I'll be around here, open to kick some ideas around if u need a sounding board. Will keep you posted on what I come up with as well
    Yeah, input in general
    Towa0003
    @Towa0003
    Cool thanks cya
