During the 12/2/21 community call we discussed the idea of doing a hardware grant for VR headsets. Within Metafactory is a working group that is focused on VR events and virtual productions.
If access to hardware is an obstacle I propose that we sponsor 5 Meta Quest 2 headsets to robots that post a comment in this thread on what they intend to use it for. They cost $200 refurbished on Walmart.com and $300 brand new.
Note: You will need a FB account currently (yuck) to use it. One of the employees said that sometime next year they plan to lift this restriction.
Note: New headsets are expected to release around Spring 2022, such as the Lynx R-1 (open source hardware). Can still expect a long lifespan with Quest 2, and it can also be linked to a PC and used with Desktop VR apps.
