This post covers technical specifications and considerations for making the most of your virtual simulations. Acadicus provides both VR and non-VR access, and can also be streamed to video conferencing platforms like Zoom, WebEx, Microsoft Teams and others.
VR Mode Hardware
Virtual Reality mode can be access with Oculus Rift or Oculus Rift S. Support for HTC Vive, Valve Index and HP Reverb G2 coming soon.
Oculus Quest 1 and 2 can technically be used when connected to a Rift-compatible windows PC, but please beware they require use of an authentic private Facebook account which is incompatible with most education and enterprise policy. We are working toward compatibility with HP Reverb G2, HTC Vive, Valve Index and other headsets, so please check in with us before making hardware purchases!
We recommend exceeding Oculus’ recommended PC specifications by including 16 gb memory or more: https://support.oculus.com/248749509016567/
