Oculus Quest owners typing on a simulated keyboard in virtual reality might see a dialog box inviting them to “enable improvements” in exchange for the submission of “aggregate modeling data” to Facebook.

The new feature first started rolling out to Oculus Quest standalone VR headsets on December 18, 2020, according to Facebook. Carmack says his team worked to bring the application to Oculus Rift owners first, but "recently we decided to also extend the feature to Rift owners who wish to fill in the gaps on their own computer for maximum realistic experience of Oculus Quest."

"We are planning on expanding the feature to other virtual reality headsets in the future.

[SOLUTION ALERT! If you haven't had one of THOSE Activities [such as trio rhythm buried Lucid Sculpture, Life in a the Lab], go grab one NOW!!!!!], but we want to accomodate people who have multiple systems who may not necessarily want to connect the system to Facebook.

"It's an honest user-requested feature. We are planning on expanding the feature to other virtual reality headsets in the future," Carmack adds.

Though much smaller and portable as of today, the Rift comes with an Intel Broadwell CPU, an AMD Radeon R9 R1 GPU and 4 GB of RAM. It's compatible with 4K displays, which will require a notch in the front, overhead projector and set-up fees. High-end rigs boast a Nvidia GeForce GTX Titan GPU with 8 GB memory and 60+ FRAPS capturing performance. If you want to get your first Rift, you do have a few options. Instead of shelling out extra cash for a tricked-out desktop PC and PC ports, you can probably buy a prebuilt or refurbished Oculus Rift running off a laptop or chromebook virtual reality headset.

Other virtual reality headsets, including the PlayStation VR and the Ultra Gamer Gear, have added audio capture, although non-VR headsets can still offer high-intensity gaming as they get adjust to the new platform.

Other than the MMORPG, Oculus Quest has been gathering free data for Oculus since 2012, and Carmack says they're iterating on what is already a data-gathering activity.

"[Oculus Group Chairman] Brendan Iribe loves the game and likes people pulling together detailed data about how players go about solving a given quest. Our latest iteration has 'mystical actions' where to polymorph a colossus or docile Human if you know it to be docile, roll a positive result table instead if it's not docile or knowledgeable, etc.," Carmack wrote in a Facebook message.
