One of the biggest differentiating features of the HTC Vive is the front-facing camera and its augmented reality capabilities. I decided to turn this demo into a new game show, "Name that Amiibo!" Please take a look.

Cool, will have to watch when I get home.
Awesome video guys just finished watching it. Man I had no idea it had that safety grid thing(such a good design) and augmented reality stuff, that is insanely cool.
Seems like the Vive is doing a "D10 battle ship sunk" the Oculus Rift tech wise. For all the extra stuff you get with Vive for the price its 100% worth it if your into VR no question. Vive or go home LOL :)
Sucks you can not play Rift games on it, I heard they are really good.
I would totally build some sort of cable arm bendy thing from the ceiling so I don't trip on the cord and have it always above me.
Very cool stuff, thanks.
