    Well it did not take long, an unofficial compatibility layer has already been created to run the Oculus exclusives Lucky's Tale and Dreamdeck on the Vive: http://thenextweb.com/gadgets/2016/04/14/theres-now-unofficial-way-play-oculus-vr-games-htc-vive/

    The Vive may have other potential for motion simming. One thing I am interested to try is mounting the Vive controllers to the rig so Lighthouse can track it, then see how easy or hard it is to generically offset the HMD view from the sim movement as a way to do motion cancellation.
