The consumer Virtual Reality Industry seems to be soaring higher and higher every year. Numerous companies, such as Oculus have no choice other than to keep upgrading to match the growing demand for advanced technology.

In 2019, the company accomplished two improvements for its virtual reality (VR) headset; Oculus Link and hand tracking. The latter has not been easy to use since it was rolled out because of the manual swapping from one menu to another. This is one of the many areas that Oculus is pursuing to make the headset user-friendly and flexible without a controller. 

The installation of the new “v13” update

This is likely to be the biggest feature to Quest headsets and is expected to help the user navigate through the Oculus Quest’s settings menu. This has been made possible through the company’s use of advanced computer vision algorithms and the incorporation of machine learning. The v13 update has a way of helping the use of Quest headsets interact with Touch controllers while being able to disable and enable them automatically. 

Other features include on the app include an updated search appearance, a redesigned storage manager, user profiles, and many others. However, the company says it is yet to test the feature despite all the hype it has received. Besides, the controller-free hand tracking does not support any games at the moment. Nonetheless, it may be just a matter of time before the games can be included.

A lot of companies are making some real money from Virtual Reality

The tech industry is bursting with competition as many technological companies swing into action to outdo each other. Notably, many of them are making bucks of money from Virtual Reality. According to Heather Bellini, a researcher, the Virtual Reality market will be worth $80 billion by 2025. This is the current market size for the desktop PC marketplace.  Examples of companies in cashing in the VR market include 8i, which uses HD video to make a virtual. Everyone knows that Google is seemingly the primary occupier of the VR space with impressive and affordable Cardboard VR headsets.
