Sharing your Lynx-R1 session

In an upcoming firmware release, you'll be able to record in the headset a Mixed Reality (Passthrough + VR elements) directly.

In the mean time, here is a workaround, as of 1.1.8.

Activate/Deactivate the lens distortion

The Lynx-R1 optical system has many advantages, but also a few caveats. Like all lenses it's full of compromises, and the distortion is one of them.

Sharing your display over scrcpy or Vysor will not yield a good view at all. Fortunately, there is now a way to deactivate the lens distortion.

Install adb on your computer, and use these commands to play with the Lynx compositor:

adb shell setprop persist.lynx.openxr.distortion value

Replace "value" in the command this way:

As an example, if you want to make a demo of the headset on a computer, follow these steps:

  1. Plug your headset over a USB port on the computer
  2. Run the command adb shell setprop persist.lynx.openxr.distortion 2 to deactivate the right eye lens.
  3. Use scrcpy to share the undistorted view with the command scrcpy --crop 1600:1600:1600:0 --max-fps 60
  4. Use the headset, it should be a bit more difficult with one eye, but Stan was able to ski this way after a bit of practice (these stunts are performed by trained professionals, do not try this at home).

We will update this page once the native function of recording will be available.
