Controller accuracy and flexibility have been improved.
While the Oculus tracking solution for Quest and Rift S was largely successful, there is always room for improvement and advanced settings. Currently, the company has released several updates to enhance the overall tracking experience of the controller on both devices, as well as improving the Oculus Quest system.
First of all, the new Oculus Touch controllers for Oculus Quest and Oculus Rift S have their own tracking algorithms that are configured to update accuracy, for example, when the hands are near the headset or at an angle from it. Thus, players should see smoother tracking and fewer mistakes when using any device, great for making several hits in Creed: Rise to Glory, reloading weapons in Gun Club VR, or just pick up things in Job Simulator.
And only for Oculus Quest, the Guardian system that keeps players safe in VR is made even more accurate and flexible. The updated system is now better automatically recognize several gaming areas in different rooms, so Oculus Quest can quickly and easily switch between locations. Or for those who have one massive room with several areas to enjoy VR, there is now support for several Guardian installations in one room. This means that there is no struggle between brothers and sisters who may want their own little piece of VR sky.
In addition to all this, the Guardian settings page now includes options for adjusting the height of the floor and changing the boundaries of the playing space without having to start from scratch.
