BostonVR Meetup: Oculus Quest Game and TechJam

  • CIC Cambridge - Venture Cafe, 5th floor 1 Broadway Cambridge, MA 02142 (map)

The Oculus quest is an all-in-one VR headset with 6 dof head tracking and 6 dof tracked hand controllers, available for under $500. It uses inside-out tracking, so the user can theoretically define an infinite tracking area.

How well does it work? How does it compare with similar headsets, most notably the Vive Focus? Come and find out!

We will have at least four Oculus Quest headsets available to pass around and we'll do lots of experiments and games. Including mirroring to a big screen and multiple people in the same virtual/physical space.

Doors will open at 6:00pm with pizza and soda, paid for by your registration fee. After everyone has had a chance to try it, we may have a group discussion about the Quest's capabilities, developing for it, and headsets like it. If you have ideas on that, let us know.

Last, but not least, if you have a Quest, any similar headset, or any other XR demo, please bring it!
