Tinkerers Get Apple’s visionOS simulator displayed on Meta Quest Professional

Tinkerers received Apple’s visionOS simulator for Mac streaming on Quest Professional as VR.

In late June, Apple launched the SDK for visionOS, Imaginative and prescient Professional’s working system, together with a visionOS simulator for builders to check their apps on their Mac.

Reverse engineering fanatic Max Thomas confirmed off this visionOS simulator in stereo on a Quest Professional by way of a USB cable on Friday by way of Thomas’s present undertaking to port Quest Hyperlink, Meta’s software program that enables the Quest to behave as a PC VR headset on Home windows, on Mac.

Thomas says this setup works and is stereo right, however described the outcome as a “hacky mess” with noticeable judder and famous that it helps neither handbook nor visible enter.

Yesterday, software program developer Zhuowei Zhang constructed on Thomas’ work to make the concept work wirelessly with ALVR, an open supply various to Meta’s wi-fi Air Hyperlink and Man Godin’s Digital Desktop.

This ALVR strategy ought to work smoother than Quest Hyperlink’s hacked strategy, but it surely nonetheless lacks handbook or visible enter.

Each approaches present the digital front room of the visionOS simulator, not the precise front room of the person. Zhang says their subsequent steps are to attempt to combine enter from Quest passthrough, hand monitoring, and eye monitoring.

If these tinkerers truly get that enter to work and make the software program steady, this might ultimately turn out to be a extremely helpful means for visionOS builders to check their app concepts in an actual headset lengthy earlier than they get entry to a Imaginative and prescient Professional, which is reportedly closely bundled and can initially solely be obtainable within the US.
