Now Meta Quest Pro Data Collection Features Allow Creating Scientific VR Research Apps in Python

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Aug. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — WorldViz VR is pleased to announce the ability for researchers to harness the power of Python with Meta Quest Pro data for the creation of scientific Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) applications. The integration between WorldViz’s Vizard VR Toolkit for researchers and Meta Quest Pro offers groundbreaking opportunities for academic researchers, as shown in this video.

Empowering Scientific Research with Python
The integration of Meta Quest Pro and the Vizard Python-based toolkit, marks a significant advancement in data collection capabilities within a VR and AR capable headset. Meta Quest Pro’s intricate tracking technology, capturing the subtle movements of hands, eyes, and facial features, combined with Python’s rapid development and data analysis capabilities, enables users to create experiments, as well as collect and analyze data efficiently.

Simple Scientific Experiment Creation
The integration also simplifies scientific VR experiment creation, data recording, playback, and visualization with SightLab VR Pro, the simple yet powerful extension to the Vizard software. SighLab VR Pro offers an intuitive interface for designing experiments, and its multi-user capabilities open up new possibilities for collaboration and data, significantly simplifying the technical challenges of running complex VR and AR experiments.

Hardware Connectivity
With Vizard’s support for over a hundred different VR peripherals, users can expand the capabilities of the Meta Quest Pro even further. This comprehensive compatibility ranges from physiological measurement devices, functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIR), to various input devices, tracking devices, and displays.

Advanced Body Tracking
Researchers and developers will appreciate the advanced tracking capabilities of Meta Quest Pro, including hand tracking, face tracking, and eye tracking. These features, alongside the video pass-through AR capability, are remarkable and serve as an invitation to step into an unprecedented realm of human behavioral scientific research study possibilities.
