For a complete and immersive experience, a VR headset is required. However, if you are accessing the content using a PC or phone with a regular 2D browser, you may enjoy it more through the main page.

Tested with Meta Quest 2. It should work with Oculus Quest, Meta Quest Pro, Oculus Rift and Oculus Rift S, although not tested. An attempt has been made to support Vive headsets (based on coding documentation), but, again, not tested since I don't have those headsets. If you are using any of the other headsets (besides Quest 2) or any headsets at all please let me know how it works for you. I'll appreciate a feedback, and that should help me improve the app.
