In VR terminology, “drift” is an unwanted situation which occurs when your VR device slowly loses the internal compass of where forward is supposed to be and is need of calibration, or “reorienting”.

And that’s pretty special if you’re in the same room with the friends playing this, as hearing their laughter makes it all worth it….
You may rue the day your mobile HMD failed to come with positional tracking pre-installed because this room feels so real that you’ll want to believe that it is. Part of its appeal for me is the incredible sense of scale, as you feel about about a 4 fee high … and everything feels the size it would be if you were that tall. And you get all of this amazing feeling of VR Presence for FREE as of this writing…
