The Immersive Pilot offers students the opportunity to explore real and imagined places and interact in shared environments across distance through powerful virtual reality (VR) hardware.
As of the start of the Immersive Headset Pilot the device pool consists of Meta Quest 2 headsets. These are standalone headsets that do not require a connection to a high end PC to offer virtual reality experiences with advanced, immersive features like motion tracking. Headsets are provided with protective cases, sanitizable face shields and Elite straps.
While useful for virtual reality apps, the Meta Quest 2 also offers a superior 360º video viewing experience for users. With a high resolution display and built in speakers, YouTube VR and other video app content looks and sounds rich and lifelike, upping immersion for viewers.
