    Hi,
    Does anybody know of a VR headset that works with Mac OS?
    I thought Vive was supposed to be supported, but some people are saying that it isn't.
    Thanks in advance,

    Brian

    I use both Oculus Go and Quest, and am very happy with them. No wires == mo better.

    Vive is supported if you have the graphics card to support it (I've done some tinkering myself, only one game on Steam is available and Unity integration is buggy).

    cardboard, Daydream and GVR are fully compatible, you can compile to droid or sync up a Daydream headset.

    It looks like GVR is off to the google graveyard though... so I can't recommend it. Latest Pixel dropped support for Daydream and buying in to the platform now is a waste of time.

    As mentioned, Oculus Quest is probably the best platform to develop for on Mac as of Today.

    In essence there is no "Mac VR headset" but mobile platforms like the Quest are easy enough to develop for on the Mac with Unity.
