The Oculus Quest can do room-scale virtual reality without the need of a stationary VR headset like the HTC Vive or Oculus Rift that are more focused on gaming. Instead, the Oculus Quest focuses on having all the functionality needed to do virtual reality within the Oculus mobile app and built into the device itself.

The ability to do virtual reality in such a compact device is quite impressive, especially when you take into account that this device is cord free. Oculus Quest can display games in both standing and sitting positions. The headset is 50 percent lighter and has 70 percent greater visual acuity than the Rift.

Oculus Quest uses Oculus Insight tracking to deliver close to real-world hand presence in virtual reality. It has six degrees of freedom, allowing for you to reach out and touch the virtual world, as well as 3DoF to generate a larger field of view and a 90Hz refresh rate that is more than twice as high as the Rift.

The Oculus Quest is compatible with existing SteamVR powered games. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, providing for quite a smooth experience. The headset is also streamlined and doesn't have the large external wires some other headsets require.

The Oculus Quest uses two 14-nm Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 mobile communication system processor chips, an Adreno 540 GPU, and connects to Wi-Fi, the internet, and mobile networks. The Oculus Quest is compatible with the Oculus mobile app for Android and iOS.
