Installing Virtualitics on Your Oculus Quest/Quest 2
After you’ve set up your Oculus Quest or Quest 2, please follow these steps to install Virtualitics on your device and begin exploring your data.
- Go to the Account Portal and login to your account
- Navigate to the My Account page on the left
- Scroll down to the Tokens and Keys section
- Click on Generate for Oculus Quest Code
- Open the Oculus app on the phone that you used to set up your Oculus Quest
- Click on your account icon in the top left of the app to open the menu
- Open the Account Settings
- Click on Redeem Store Code
- Enter the 25 digit code that you generated from the Account Portal into this Code section
- Now you can either click install from the app (if the Headset is powered on), or go into the Headset and start the install manually. To install manually, navigate to the Library on your Oculus Quest, where you will now find Virtualitics available for download.
Note: Due to the wireless nature of the Oculus Quest, all of the processing and rendering is done locally on the headset itself. This means that there are some performance trade-offs for the freedom of being a standalone device. You will only be able to load datasets with fewer than 50,000 rows; if an Oculus Quest user is in an SVO session with another user who attempts to load in a dataset with more than 50,000 rows, the Oculus Quest user will be removed from the SVO. Additionally, plotted points will be rendered in Point Cloud mode instead of as 3D Shapes for datasets with more than 10,000 points. Please refer to our Shape page for more details about different shape options and their relative performance cost.
