COMFORT for the player's eyes 

Oculus Quest includes the same best-of-class optics as Oculus Go with a display resolution of 1600x1440 pixel per eye, while incorporating a lens spacing adjustment to help maximize visual comfort. The next-gen lenses with reduced glare and a wider field of view, and integrated audio with no need for headphones , deliver a fully immersive gaming experience with no setup or PC required.

With the same buttons, thumbsticks, and sensors that have defined VR gaming, their intuitive touch controllers bring real hands into VR and let users easily and naturally interact with the world around them.

The inside-out tracking system enables outward facing sensor architecture to capture, trace, and navigate physical spaces, delivering a greater sense of immersion, presence, and mobility in VR. Four wide-angle cameras in the corners of the eyewear scan the environment in real-time using computer vision algorithms, determine the player's position in space, and capture the two motion controllers.
