The Oculus Quest is a virtual reality (VR) headset created by Oculus VR, a brand of Facebook Technologies, released on May 21, 2019.
Similarly to its predecessor, the Oculus Go, it can be used wirelessly as a standalone device with its own integrated hardware (based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 system-on-chip, running games and software from the Oculus store using an Android-based operating system. It also utilizes Oculus Touch controllers, which are tracked via an array of cameras embedded in the front of the headset. The cameras are also used as part of the safety feature “Passthrough”, which shows a view from the cameras when the user exits their designated boundary area. A later software update added “Oculus Link”, a feature that allows the Quest to be connected to a computer via USB, enabling use with Oculus Rift-compatible software and games.
