What are some Best Practices for Using Embodied Labs?

Here are some key things to expect when you first start using Embodied Labs.

 

1. At the beginning of your session using the VR kit
    1. Turn on the laptop and let it fully start up
    2. Plug in the headset. This automatically starts Mixed Reality Portal and you’ll see it come up on the laptop screen.
    3. MRP is like a bridge that lets us run the Embodied Labs app.  
      1. Press minus button (-) at top right to minimize it, but DON’T close it. 
  1. At the end of your VR session, turn off the laptop and unplug your headset from your laptop. 
  2. Sit down in a swivel chair when you’re inside the headset.
  3. When sharing your VR experience with a group over Zoom or in-person on a big TV:
    1. Move slowly, as if you were doing tai chi or yoga
    2. What you see in the headset doesn’t exactly translate to what the group sees on the big screen, so you may need to look up or down, or scan around more than you would expect
  4. Expect to regularly be offered updates when you log into the Embodied Labs app.  
    1. We recommend opening the Embodied Labs app a few minutes before your scheduled training session, in order to take care of any updates. 
    2. Updates will normally take around 3-5 minutes each. If a larger update is coming up, we will notify you a few days in advance.
