Building on the success of the Oculus Quest Retail Demo App, ForwardXP was called on again by Oculus to build a new retail demo experience for the new Oculus Quest 2, showing off the breadth and quality of content already available for the cable-free VR device.
One of the unique enhancements of this demo is the casting feature, which allows others in the store to see what the in-headset user is experiencing, real-time. The app was created in C++/Java in the Oculus native framework and directly interfaces with the Oculus VR Shell. This powerful yet flexible architecture allows for highly performant 4k by 4k 360 stereo video playback, 2D video combined with 3D models, GLTF, dynamic interactive overlays, and other UI elements.
We created a powerful scripting system that allows these elements to be seamlessly integrated and easily interchanged, rearranged, or modified without changes to the primary application.
