Here are some details about Oculus Quest 2 Controller
Oculus Quest 2 is the most versatile headset you can buy right now. It offers a truly mobile virtual reality experience and it’s one of the top consumer VR headsets on the market today.
Oculus Quest 2 comes with a new type of controller, dubbed “Oculus Touch.” Unlike the first Oculus Quest controller, the Oculus Touch is designed to allow users to reach out and grab virtual objects as easily as they would in real life.
Oculus Touch also has an analog thumbstick on top and two facial recognition sensors that can detect your facial expressions. It even has a haptic touchpad to simulate physical object interactions that aren’t possible with the external analog joystick found on the rest of Quest controllers. This next-generation tracking feature allows you to use Touch in a variety of games and applications.
What are the default controls of the Oculus Quest 2 Controller? Do I need to manually calibrate it before I play my games? Read on to find out.
1) Oculus Quest 2 Controller is packed with a 5.5-inch OLED touch panel display that sports a resolution of 1080 x 1440. Oculus Quest 2 comes with two controllers and a primary controller, which you’ll use to interact with VR games and applications. The secondary controller can be used for social experiences, or for playing games that require you to handle the device itself (e.g., when Quest is mounted onto a desk or other flat surface); however, the easiest way to handle Quest 2 is through use of the primary controller.
2) Each controller has built-in 3DOF sensors that track how you move your head and hands, to provide an immersive virtual reality experience. The primary controller has a standard analog joystick, which is useful for things like navigating through menus and games.
3) Each Oculus Touch controller can be paired with up to four Quest 2 controllers by dragging them over to the controller you want to pair. When you’re done, be sure to click the pairing button on all four controllers so they’ll work in unison.
How to Pair an Oculus Touch Controller
To sync your Oculus touch controller, you’ll need to power on the Quest 2 and then
- Click on the settings icon in the bottom left of the menu.
- Scroll down through the various options until you reach Devices, where you’ll be able to choose which controller you want to pair with Quest 2 (either controller can be paired with either of your headsets).
- Once in Device Settings, select the controller and drag it over so it appears under your device name.
- Once you’ve paired each of your controllers with one of your headsets, you can calibrate each one to ensure the Quest 2 Controller is set up correctly.
- To do this, start by putting on the headset and then double-clicking the trigger button on either controller.
- Then point at the button you want to calibrate, and hold the trigger in for a few seconds until it’s set. You can calibrate up to four buttons per controller.
The Oculus Quest 2 controller is among the best available gaming peripherals and features a number of interesting innovations that make it one of the most commercially viable VR controllers.
