We built a portable lagmachine using a Raspberry Pi and a Oculus Rift.

- at least you're now conceding that ping can measure round-trip time. A step in the right direction.
I mean, you are aware that the name ping came from the noise sonar makes aren't you? That technology to determine distance based on round-trip time. So it might do a lot more, but that was it's original intention.Apr 28, 2014
- Anyone that thinks bandwidth means ping has no clue how the Internet works.
I have 20meg down Internet and I love it, but I also have 20ms pings. I'd take 5meg down with 20ms pings over 20meg down with 300ms pings any day.
I'm not even talking gaming. I can pull up a dozen or more web pages in a few seconds and especially with a modern multi threaded browser you WILL notice some serious delay on page loading.
The Oculus rift test here is a joke, human beings have trouble with 30MS of delay let alone 300ms.
I bet you 10 billion dollars that if you fitted one of these to a very young child and forced them to use it they'd eventually cope because the brain at that age is far more plastic, but you're talking about forcing the brain to do this when a child is less than a year old.
Would be a neat if morally problematic experiment.Apr 28, 2014
- Given a typical geosynchronous orbit of about 22k miles the relativistic MINIMUM ping time is 240ms anything bellow that is physically impossible.
That doesn't include physical or protocol layer encoding/decoding latency
In theory latency could be lower to non geosynchronous satellites (substantially) but the network would not be practical for large scale deployment.Apr 29, 2014
- The WHY is important. I didn't use bigger words, bigger words were required to explain WHY.Apr 29, 2014
- Great idea, and well executed too. Made me smile.Apr 30, 2014
