Palmer Luckey Claims 30 Percent of Rift Customers Can’t Use New Rift S

The Rift S drops the hardware slider [for interpupillary distance]. Like the Oculus Go it uses an IPD of ~64mm, corresponding to the most common value for human vision [fits only 70% of people]..

As with most things, human IPD varies across a range. The original Rift is designed with a hardware slider for changing the IPD, allowing it to adjust between 58mm and 72mm [fits 95% of people].

According to Lucky, only about 70 percent of Rift customers will be able to use the headset effectively. The rest will have varying degrees of problems [due to lack of IPD adjustment].
