Best ideas to level up your couple gaming room
✅ Level Up Your Gaming World With VR Experience
‘This device is life changing. I’m a huge gamer. I’ll admit, an unhealthy addict. Sitting in front of a desktop PC doesn’t do my body any good at all. It’s been causing me anxiety, loss of sleep and disappointment in myself. I was assuming the Vive would just add to it, but I had to have it anyway. The result were entirely unexpected. In less than a week I’ve exercised more than I have in years and had a BLAST doing so. I actually WANT to exercise more than my body can handle. My entire body is sore and I’m loving it.
I feared that I would use the Vive as a form of escape and ignore my real world responsibilities and kill my social life. The exact opposite has happened. This is not a casual toy. If you intend to use it room scale, it takes a lot of planning. There are sensors to set up, a good amount of space needed, a LOT of cable management. It works best if you have an entire room dedicated to VR, but not all of us are fortunate enough to have that kind of space.
Something you will learn early on is that when you take off the headset and return to the real world, you want your real world settings to be pleasing. The last thing you want to see when you return is a sink full of dishes, dirty laundry, clutter or anything that would cause you disappointment. My apartment is now spotless and totally in order. Half of my living room is set up for the Vive. I have a welcoming, clean open space complete with yoga mats. I now live in my previously unused workout clothes.
This is an experience to share. My friends are totally blown away. This didn’t decrease my social life. Again, it did the opposite. I’m inviting my MOTHER over! GASP! That never happens! 🙂 She used to be an avid scuba diver but can no longer dive due to health issues. Next week I’m taking her scuba diving in my living room! My friend’s wife was trying to plan a small surprise birthday for him but they’re new in town and don’t know many people. I offered to host the gathering at my place. Why not? It’s now clean! We had a wonderful evening. I’m planning on having people over most weekends to have fun and explore the possibilities the Vive offers. It’s a joy to share!
My PC gaming addiction is gone. POOF! Just like that. I never would thing this would happen. Yes, I’m still playing games, but I’m fully active. Very active. I moved almost non stop for 3.5 hours yesterday. I’m much more aware of my time. I don’t feel depressed or that I’m missing out or hiding from life. I feel exhilarated.
This does not come without a price. Please know that the current $799 price is just the beginning. You will need a top of the line computer with a powerful graphics card in order to run the Vive properly. Being a big gamer, I already had the computer ($1100 about six months ago) but I still had to upgrade to a GeForce 1070, which currently runs just over $400. Tripods and mounts: $60. Applications run from free to about $30 each. I’ve dropped a couple of hundred on games in the first week.
Budget your money, budget your space, know what you have to do to get this set up, get your act together and THEN buy this. Your story might end differently than mine, but I hope if anything it’s better.
And for the love of all that is holy, buy Audioshield. It’s by far my most used app and SOOOOOOOO much fun’
✅ 412 Amazing Classic Games For 2 Players – Controls on BOTH sides
‘Being stuck inside cause of covid and Chicago’s winter, this gamer has made it easier to deal with. Friends and family love it. It reminds us of our youth and how fun was so simple. Assembly was easy and everything came package securely. Nothing was damaged and it arrived quickly. I’ve inspired so many others to purchase one for their homes.’
✅ You’d Be Stupid To NOT Buy One For Winter Gaming!!!
‘I would never take this off during the winter if I didn’t have to. So soft. So toasty. I can fit my whole body into this thing when I’m sitting down. You deserve this’
✅ Extra Long & Bright – Essential Decor For Every Gaming Room
‘I have tried several types from different brands before, and this one is by far the best deal on them based on how much you get for the price!
These lights work very well, with a remote and even having an app to try them with. I personally have not tried the app yet, but I do like the settings on the remote.
These LED lights are bright but can be dimmed as necessary, and the colors are vibrant and fun.
You get an excellent amount of lights as well, with them being separated into different strips so that you can fit it to your needs. If you really need to, I have heard you can apparently cut the strip to fit your needs and it will not affect the rest of the line. I have not tried this yet, but I haven’t heard of this going wrong for people.
Overall, this is an amazing buy! You get an excellent amount of led lighting fun for a reasonable price with amazing features. I recommend this to anyone looking to add a personal touch to any home, as this will do the trick for you!’
✅ 2 are good, 4 is better! These are beautiful!
‘These are beautifully defused and can be controlled easily by iCue software but installing them by the instructions is not advisable if you want great cable management. I did not use the metal plates as I found that the magnets are not very strong and getting them to stay in place was really difficult. The plastic stands containing the magnets pop right off and you can use strong two sided 3m exterior tape to mount them to the monitor or just use two sided tape directly on the plastic stands. I also did not want the controller on the monitor so I just ran an extension(provided in the kit) back towards the center of the monitor to run hidden to the underside of the seat where I mounted the controller. Two important hints, make sure you use the input of the ascending strip as shown in the directions and once you have the unit installed, don’t be alarmed if some of the lights will not light on a 2 channel setup. The instructions say you can have up to 138 leds per channel and 192 for both together. I have two 450 mm and two 250 mm on channel one behind the monitor and another four 450mm on channel two behind my desktop for a total of 192. Three leds would not light until I placed them in lighting channels in iCue. If you are going to try to use these without a computer, you can, your limited to about 188 led’s for some reason. The expectation is that you will fire these up with iCue. They are beautiful but you have to know how to set them up.’
✅ You can set each LED as you wish to scroll messages or draw little images, firework lighting effect, KTV lighting effect, another chasing lighting effect etc.
‘This panel looks great. I was easily able to control it with an Arduino. Do an internet search for “Random Nerd Tutorials” and you will find the Arduino code you will need. Customer support for this panel is very good. I was supplied a data sheet and other panel information upon request. The seller is very responsive and does everything possible to satisfy you.’
✅ Cheap Alternative to Nanoleaf: Very cool lamp with limitless design possibilities!
‘I have about $700 invested in Nanoleaf and this was the best/cheapest alternative I’ve found.
Compared to Nanoleaf, the app is pretty bad. But it does the job and there’s a lot of customization available.
I think the lights themselves are pretty good and have a wide range of effects. The lights are very bright when used at 100%. I’ll probably never use mine over 25%. It works with Alexa but the alexa skill and the native app are named differently and I never saw it documented anywhere. The Alexa skill is called lifesmart….saved you a google click.
I got the lamp with 10 modules and I probably wouldn’t get any set that was smaller.
In reading the last few comments before I purchased 2 of these, there was a comment about the packaging being excessive. Then the next guy was like, ‘really, buddy?!’. I kinda felt the same way until it got here. Let’s just say I spent more time unpackaging and cleaning up than I did setting up the lamp. All the boxes are folded origami style so you can flatten them all or a relatively small size, but you’re talking at least 20 individual boxes and dividers for ONE lamp. No fear of these lights being damaged in transit whatsoever, but it was a bit of overkill.
I like the lights and I think they’re a great value. The item is as described. The touch sensor is about useless, (you have to fumble around behind the lamp to find it with blinding LEDs in your eye but this is not a feature I care about). The app isn’t the best UI/UX but I’m not here for the app. Once I get the presets the way I want, I’ll probably always use Alexa exclusively to control this device.’
