Frequently asked questions about installing the Edge Factor VR app on an Oculus Quest.
What is in the Edge Factor VR app?
The app is still in early development, but it currently covers five industries: Agriculture, Mining, Transportation, Construction, and Manufacturing. Each industry contains a thematic lobby with 360 degree videos, a 3D model viewing room and a 2D theater where you can watch relevant EF content.
We are currently working on implementing museum rooms that feature exhibits, more 3D models, interactive experiences and the like. We are also working on implementing quizzes and measurable academic content.
What devices are compatible with Edge Factor VR?
Edge Factor VR is being built for the Oculus Quest 2, but is also available for the Oculus Quest 1. It is not compatible with the Oculus Go or the Oculus Rift, although there are plans for PCVR compatibility in the future.
What is the Oculus Quest?
The Oculus Quest 2 is a mobile Virtual Reality headset that does not require a PC to operate. It is fully wireless so there are no cables or tracking boxes, but it does require charging in between uses.
If you are interested, please visit oculus.com/quest-2. The headset retails for US$299 for the 64GB model and US$399 for the 256GB model. There are accessories available to give the device longer battery life, to make it more comfortable, and many other things.
Is the 64GB or 256GB model recommended?
Most mobile VR applications are just a few GB (our app is 1.3 GB). The average user who intends to use Edge Factor VR and several other learning apps or games, will be fine with the 64GB model. Users that intend to use the headset for further applications, including VR media such as concerts and movies, should opt for the 256GB model, as media files and experimental applications tend to be much larger and can add up quickly.
How do I install Edge Factor VR?
You can install Edge Factor VR by visiting our App Lab page link, logging into your Oculus account, and clicking “Add to Library”. Afterwards, put on your headset and Edge Factor VR should now be a part of your library. Click on it to install. Please remember you will need to request a PIN from Edge Factor in order to access the app.
What does Edge Factor VR cost?
Edge Factor VR comes free with your Edge Factor membership.
