We would however like to ask you to cooperate with us on improving this breakthrough technology, be it on providing feedback not only on functionality, but also on the user experience, comfort, and features.
As part of the launch of our eeVRee application, we have encountered certain limitations on distribution options and are currently in the work to improve this process with our partners, the Oculus store and vendors. In the meantime, we ask you to understand the requirement for the current, below described, set up and installation process.
To support you with the hardware and software set up, we not only utilized standardized guides and provided our own, but will be also available to provide you with online support on the following date within these times:
10:00 – 12:00
14:30 – 16:30
On this day we will do an online demonstration of the set up, but in case you encounter any problems, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will ensure a 1 on 1 online session where we will guide you through any problematic steps.
We ask you to perform the below described installation process on the 14.3. if possible, so that in case of any issues you will be able to contact us as soon as possible, or on the online sessions.
Thank you, and we wish you a pleasant experience, see you in the mixed reality!

This means that the calibration of the floor of you Oculus Quest 2 is off, please exit the eeVRee application, restart the guardian setup and make sure your floor in VR corresponds to you floor in real life. Also make sure that you are either sitting or standing correctly during the floor calibration. See https://support.oculus.com/guardian/ if needed
(see the control schema if needed) First, open the eeVRee menu, make sure you are logged in with your credentials and afterwards click the conference list button, I.e.
Here you can choose a conference for which you have a valid VR ticket
Several possibilities. First, make sure you have joined a currently running presentation and that asking questions is enabled. Some speakers may wish to allow questions only at the end of their presentation, in which case you’ll see a notification that currently questions are disabled.
If all of the above is satisfied and you still can’t submit questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
In order to activate and use the keyboard, you need to have the laser pointer(s) on the controllers active and use the trigger buttons to “click” on what you want to choose.
Note that you can use one or both hands with active laser pointers to type quicker if you wish.
While generally this shouldn’t be possible, there might be instances when you, by walking in real life, might cause issues if you clip through boundaries. In such cases the simplest solution is to close the application and rejoin the conference.
Also make sure that you haven’t been disconnected due to a network error, check you Wi-Fi connection is active and rejoin the conference.
Aside from making sure that there is a currently running presentation in the chosen room, try leaving the presentation room and return to the main venue and rejoin the presentation room to restart the stream.
Also try to click on the choosing room button several times to ensure the video and audio loads if needed (3-7 click should be enough).
First, it is very important to set up your Oculus quest 2 correctly, ensure it has a good fit on your head, the lenses are clean and the IDP is set to the most comfortable level for you.
If the problem persists, immediately take a break and join us on our web player. For some first time users the VR experience can be a bit overwhelming, so take your time while you get accustomed to it.
Yes, you can also chat with available onsite users who are using their eeVRee mobile application! That’s one of the main advantages of eeVRee, so stay in touch with your peers!
Yes, we’ve currently build the darts minigame as a single-player experience, but expect new minigames in the future, that will allow you to synchronize with onsite and VR attendees!
We will be sending a questionnaire after the conference is finished, but feel free to also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and thank you for helping us improve!
