Oculus Quest 2 Review And Setup With In-Depth Review Of Features

Oculus Quest 2 Review

Performance and battery life: more pixels, more fun While the Oculus Quest 2 is not a radical redesign of the first headset, neither inside nor out, it has received a considerable technical upgrade. With a resolution of 1832 x 1920 (nearly 2K), it has 50% more pixels than the Quest and more than the PC -powered Rift S. The performance is backed by a new custom Snapdragon XR2 chip and an increase from 2 GB RAM to 6 GB.

And the difference is noticeable, especially when we compare the Quest 2 to the Rift S. The text is undoubtedly sharper, and the image is simply crisper overall. Do games look stunningly good? No, but they look damn good for a medium that still feels like science fiction at times.

Perhaps even more exciting is the refresh rate of the Fast Switch display LCD, which has been swapped out for the OLED panels of the first Quest and will soon allow 90 Hz for smoother gameplay and, hopefully, less motion sickness due to the lower lag.

And as VR users who are unfortunately prone to the dreaded combination of hot face and wobbly legs that a bad experience can bring, we are all for anything that eliminates the nausea. Until then, only the home screen runs at 90Hz, and that definitely makes a big difference.

Oculus has decided to keep the 6 degrees of freedom (6DOF), and it works as brilliantly as before. Whether sitting, standing, or patrolling the Guardian border, the Quest 2 registers every movement. And that goes for the subtle movements, too, like lining up a sniper shot perfectly or adding backspin to a forehand in a game of virtual table tennis.

Earlier this year, Oculus added support for hand tracking, which registers button inputs by asking you to squeeze your fingers together. This also feels almost magical at times, and it only takes a minute or two to set up, but it’s not quite as reliable as using the touch controllers.

You can expect longer battery life from the Quest 2’s controllers, but the headset will still give up the ghost after 2-3 hours. That does not sound good on paper anyone who spends more than a few hours at a time on VR probably will not know what reality they actually belong in anymore. Or, you know, just get a headache. And if you are really hardcore, there’s an optional headband with a built-in battery that doubles the life of the headset. Oculus says the Quest 2 fully charges in 2.5 hours, and that seemed to be true in our test.

Setup: a Guardian’s permission With the Oculus Quest 2 on your head, you can star in your own Star Wars movie, box with the best of them, and climb mountains before you get to work, but setting up the device is as satisfying as pretty much anything else it can do.

Once you have turned on the headset (remember, you do not have to worry about wires), found the right fit, connected it to your Wi-Fi, and paired it with the Oculus app on your phone, you’ll be prompted to follow the on-screen instructions to set up your Guardian.

This is where you draw a virtual outline around your play area to set boundaries. If you even come close to crossing your Guardian’s boundary, a red warning wall will appear, and if you break through it completely, you’ll see a real-time view of the  physical world around you. This way, you can indulge in the occasionally nauseating thrill of VR without worrying about punching a hole in your TV.

Oculus offers recommended dimensions for room-filling apps, and the headset will warn you if your dimensions are off. There are many excellent stationary VR experiences out there, but be aware that you’ll need a fairly large room to get the most out of the Quest 2. You should also know that this is the first Oculus headset that requires you to sign in with your Facebook account, even if you already have an Oculus account. If you do not, you will not be able to use the Quest 2 at all.

Top 8 Reasons To Write Journals

Top 8 Reasons To Write Journals

There are many reasons why we keep diaries. From travel diaries, dream diaries, gratitude diaries to prayer diaries, we keep special diaries for different aspects of our lives. In the past, many people kept personal diaries in which they recorded the day’s events and their observations. Without diarists like Anne Frank and Samuel Pepys, we would not know much about the personal side of our history.

‘Although people today keep blogs or vlogs and record their lives on social media, very few of us write in a diary and record our experiences. So why not give it a try? There are many benefits to keeping a journal.

Here are the top 8 reasons why you should start a diary today:

1. Keep your thoughts organized.

Diaries help us organize our thoughts and keep them trackable. You can record daily events, thoughts and feelings about specific experiences or opinions. Journey allows you to mark and archive your diary entries.

2. Improve your writing.

Keeping a journal helps you practice your writing. If you want to practice or improve your writing, the best way is to start a journal. You do not necessarily have to have the perfect topic. All you need to do is to start writing your thoughts in Journey. The more you write, the more your writing will improve.

3. Set and achieve your goals.

A journal is a good place to write down your goals, ambitions, wishes, and resolutions for the new year. By recording them in a journal, you can monitor your progress and feel motivated to stay focused on your next milestone!

4. Record ideas along the way.

The benefit of keeping a journal is that you can record all of your ideas in one place, anytime, anywhere. Whenever an idea pops into your head, you can record it in your journal. You can then refer back to those ideas later to look for new connections, draw conclusions, or even get a new idea! Get started with a digital diary – download the Journey app today!

5. Reduce stress.

Writing down your feelings helps you “unload” your fears, frustrations and pain into a journal. This can help you reduce and relieve stress that has built up over time. A good way to reduce stress is to write in stream-of-consciousness style first thing in the morning, called “morning pages.” You can also use the mood indicator in Journey to indicate your mood level. Overall, expressing yourself in a journal is a great way to relieve tension that prevents you from feeling happy.

6. Allow yourself to be self-reflective. As Ferris Bueller once said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you do not stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.” Our fast-paced lives can become even more hectic as we begin to take on more responsibilities, so we feel the pressure others put on us. This causes us to become hectic because we easily get caught up in the daily grind. A journal is a great way to pause, take a step back and reflect on ourselves. We can reflect on our gratitude or what we did today and write it in our journal. Daily reflection can also be done in the evening before going to bed. We can look back on our lives in a diary and reflect on how we have changed and what we can do to improve ourselves.

7. Strengthen your memory.

Your brain probably stores information you wrote down in your journal. Your brain makes stronger connections to the information you learned after you wrote it down in a journal, so you can recall it more easily in the future!

8. Inspire your creativity.

Writing a journal is a great way to unleash your creativity. Everyone has the potential to be creative, most of us just have not discovered it yet. Your journal is the best place to start exploring your inner creativity. Write down anything that comes to mind. Let your imagination run wild and capture it in Journey. Keeping a journal has many other benefits.

Dear Friends, I invite you to buy this weekly journal below. Thanks for your support.

What Is Creativity And Innovation?

What Is Creativity And Innovation?

Creativity and innovation are often seen as interchangeable. However, while there is overlap between them, they’re different. It’s important to understand and apply that difference in your innovation strategy. Creativity vs. Innovation Creativity is the act of conceiving something new, whether a variation on a theme or something wholly new. Innovation is the act of putting something into practice. It’s the difference between conceiving of the idea of a craft that could fly through space, and actually building a rocket that people can ride into space. Why the confusion? One follows the other, and the two usually nest within each other as well. We often even use the terms interchangeably; look at how often a new invention is called both “innovative” and “creative.”

Take building that rocket, for example; the “space dividend” from a host of parts and materials created to solve a particular problem yielded research and ideas that allowed people to go to new creative heights, and then put those heights into practice. If you use a memory foam bed, scratch-resistant sunglasses, take a picture, or put an LED light into a lamp, you’re the beneficiary of the creativity and innovation of NASA and other space agencies. Can there be innovation without creativity?

In the sense that you can build something just to see what happens, curiosity or wanting to know why can be a powerful force as well. However, innovation is strongest when it’s directed toward a goal. Creativity helps you find the goal, and innovation allows you to reach it. So how do you use this intellectual waterfall? Both creativity and innovation need nurturing.

The Flow Of Innovation Creativity should be key in the goal stages of your innovation program. Keep in mind, goals don’t have to include vast, world-spanning approaches. A creative goal can be modest. Say you have a creative vision to reinvent the car. Along the way, you’ll have to reinvent all the systems within the car, most likely, and you’ll have to apply creativity each step of the way, and then innovate to reach your goal.

This means you’ll be using creativity constantly during your innovation process. It may be used as a way of solving problems, or it may be a way of reframing the problem. Look no further than the many, many electric vehicles that are about to hit the market. Replacing the battery and motor has led to a whole host of changes; Ford’s electric F-150 can pull one million pounds. Electric vehicles can be built on a “skateboard” platform, so models are experimenting with “frunks,” trunks in the front, “crawlspaces” to hide safety gear, and even swappable frames.

Creativity has even led to rethinking transit itself. There are concepts like folding cars that can be “popped” open, cars with spherical tires that do away with parallel parking, and more. Remember the key difference. Creativity lets you think of new goals for which to reach, and innovation lets you get to those goals and find new ones.
