With over two weeks to go until the release of the Oculus Quest, fans patiently awaiting the arrival of the highly-anticipated standalone VR headset have been getting creative with their time as they countdown the days until the May 21st launch.  

Whereas a majority of users online have been busying themselves with various speculations and memes, one fan, in particular, has been hard at work conceptualizing a variety of Oculus Quest skins themed around some of the headsets most anticipated titles.

In addition to these detailed game-themed skins, u/Cothilian also shows off a solid blue design that—while not as intricate as the Robo Recall or Beat Saber versions—is still a pleasant alternative to the standard jet black color of the Quest.

While Oculus has yet to reveal any information regarding potential visual customization, we did spot a glimpse of both blue and orange colored Quests during the companies arena demo of Dead and Buried at OC5; although they maintain these colors were just to help spectators distinguish teams.

While the future of official game-themed Quest headsets is murky, there’s no reason why third-party manufacturers can’t provide their own solutions to customization; if they can figure out how to play nice with the Quest’s multiple infrared sensors that are.

What is 360 VR Video?

360 video is a video that is recorded in all directions at the same time with multiple cameras. The videos are stitched together either internally in the camera or externally using special software.

It then forms one spherical video that is controlled by the viewer, enabling them to look up, down, right or left at their discretion.

Is 360 Video Virtual Reality?

I want you to be the judge.
