  1. Real Use of Furniture/Ability to set a Television with Hulu/Netflix and Adjust Lighting/Have custom controllable lighting objects.

    So there are a few things that contribute to the whole that I would like. Netflix and Hulu obviously have their own apps. But to have an app like experience in the home on a screen where we can set up a couch and place a screen would be awesome. This would be better than the experience you get in the Netflix or Plex VR apps.

    Also would be nice to have some lighting objects and have advanced lighting that could be able to adjust to playing of video much like the oculus video app.

    • Home game cartridge organization such as a jukebox, bookshelf, vending machine, binder, display case, rolodex shelf... anything?

      A lot of us have tried to dress up our homes by showing off our collection of games only to find that it's the quickest way to make your house look ugly and messy. Now that people will be able to visit, it would be nice to have something they can go through to see what games (that I choose) I might want to play with them while also complimenting the room with a nice piece of furniture. They could be the box art that pops out of a bookcase when you hold a button and point at them or…

      • earth

        The space environment for Oculus Home is really too busy, with too much going on, with exaggerated proportions that make it cartoony instead of awe-inspiring. I think something with just the Earth in a closer perspective, slowly rotating, would a lot more quietly impressive.

        There's one example on SteamVR that I found very nice:

        • Virtual camera/webcam in Oculus Home

          If we had a virtual webcam that our PC saw as an actual camera device, we could use that and have skype calls from within our Home environment. I could set the camera on a shelf, or even carry it around and point it at what i want. And we could have a skype meeting running on the PC and be able to view that from the screen mirroring feature that we already have.

          aside from that, it would give people another POV they can use, instead of just screen caping what their eyes see.

          • Add mods system for loading custom scripted content. What if I want to code a pet cat!! (I do)

            Add MODS!
            I want to be able to add anything that I want to my home!
            Be it a virtual arcade cabinet that emulates games, a cat I modeled and coded the AI for myself.
            ****, portal guns, why not!!
            If I can make it, I want to be able to add it.
            I want to be the god of my world!

            • Let me Place the Home-Hopping Crystal Balls as Objects

              As someone who has really enjoyed setting up multiple homes, I think it would be awesome to be able to move between different homes without opening the Oculus Home Menu. For example, being able to place the "home-hopping" crystal balls as decorations on a desk or table would be great. Alternatively, being able to place wall-mounted portals through which we could teleport between homes might be even better.
              If such an object or portal could be set up between one of my homes and a friend's home, that would be better yet.

              • Points instead of random stuff

                It would be nice to get points from using VR to spend on furniture and items instead of a RNG system. The points could be spent in an in home store.

                • add a multiplayer town option

                  this is in addition to the actual home, a new world of sorts where each person can have their own home in a town option. in this multiplayer mode, you should be able to experiments with different powers and abilities to play about with friends as well as furniture and tools such as more guns and swords

                    doing achievements in the home space like getting a lot of shots on target would earn money which then could be used to buy other houses with more rooms

                    • AI like replika

                      It would be cool to introduce an AI like replika into the Oculus home, but give it some Cortana or Siri abilities. A virtual friend you can see, play games with, teach, and chat with that can also do things you ask it to do like check the time in Australia, open apps on desktop, clean up the mess you made with the bow and arrow, search the web, and so on.

                      • Add interactivity to the pet stands/tables (Fairy table and Hummingbird Stand)

                        When you approach the fairy for the Fairy Table she just hides. You should be able to pick fruit that grows back over the course of a timeline and feed them to her. Also have her climb on your hands, be held. Some mild interactivity that is engaging. The hummingbird stand is kind of the same thing. There is two birds. They should be like hummingbirds that can interact with you more like budgies. Eventually coaxing them to your finger and having the ability to feed them with a dropper that is part of the stand.

                        • Collectibles

                          The weekly item giveaways seem kind of aimless at the moment, which is fine in the short term but longer term it might be a good idea to give some thought to themes and collectible items.

                          People could sign up for clubs and get additional boxes full of specialized items. World flags, busts of musical composers, fighting planes or ships, things like that at first -- one or more free item every week, day, M/W/F, whatever.

                          It doesn't have to be a horrifically predatory exercise in gouging users, just a way to get people interested in logging in and invested…

                            I've made a lot of friends on Oculus, but I don't want to "call" them every time I want to see if they're free to play (they're also not likely free at that moment). If their was a way of integrating Facebook Messenger or something like that so I could just send a note saying, "Hey, you free in an hour to play?" or something like that, that would be fantastic. I say Facebook messenger because A. You already own it and B. There's a mobile app (which would go a long way to communicate with friends about playing when…

                              Being able to import Medium creations in Home is already super interesting. Quill animated creations can make the Home feels even more alive.

                              • Social area attached to home

                                I think that the next step is to set up social areas that are separate from the "Home". the "Home" instanced in the social area and the social area could be like a little town with shops and game areas. Kind of like how Rec Room is set up, but your home as the dorm room and a town as rec center. I really think that that is the way that VR is heading, and why not lead the way.

                                    • Single Item remove button

                                      A couple game cartridges in my home blasted off into nowhere and it seems I can't retrieve it without putting every single furniture item away. A button that just puts a single specific item away from the menu without having it in your hands would be great.

                                        I love the idea of a virtual retro console and you place a VR headset on your head to play VR in VR (so meta), but what if those game cartridges could be placed in a console about waist height and then there's some kind of Star Trek-esque device where a portal/ Rift (see what I did there) shows up? I feel like this would enhance immersion in the game space, unify the barriers between games, and make it feel like a cohesive, shared universe.

                                          I would like to be able to set Home up to always be oriented a certain way when I log in, rather than the direction I'm facing. I would set up furniture to map realistically to my play area and know where my desk is.
