Oculus Quest 2


The Oculus Quest is a fully immersive VR headset with built-in earpieces and touch controllers. The system utilizes inside-out tracking to power the headset without the need to tether the system to a PC or external sensors.

The Quest enables room-scale tracking. This means that both user position via the headset, and the user movements via the controllers, are tracked. This allows users a highly immersive experience as they can physically move around while in an experience in the virtual space. The Guardian system ensures they do not come into contact with physical objects while exploring the virtual space.

Oculus App Troubleshooting Tips

  • The headset and the mobile device must be connected to the same Wi-Fi network when using the Oculus app with the headset.
  • The app requires a smartphone running iOS 10 or 6.0 Marshmallow or higher.
  • Note there are free and paid experiences for the Oculus.


The use of Virtual Reality experience demands certain safety considerations, especially if potential users have preexisting medical conditions. Please review these considerations carefully.

Guardian System

The Quest's 'Guardian' system is designed to keep users within defined boundaries, called the play area, to account for the parameters and objects of the physical world. Essentially it prevents users bumping into walls while immersed in the experiences offered by warning users if they approach the edge, or step out, of the play area. If the user approaches the edge of the defined play area, the headset view will display a translucent grid to alert them.

The Quest will prompt users to set up the guardian boundary before use. During set up the Quest will walk users through setting up the Guardian. Get support for setting up the Guardian.

If you use the headset in the Experience Lab, our staff will have set up the guardian in advance for you.
