❌ Recommended >cable management< is needed.
❌ Same games not supported (compatibility like the Rift S)

Stream SteamVR wirelessly with Airlink or Virtual Desktop

✅ More games compatible with Cybershoes
✅ You are free. No cable issues to disturb your experience.
✅ Lower Cost: 802.11ac WIFI router + Virtual Desktop app.
❌ Video signal has compression artifacts on detail-rich surfaces when in motion.

Purchase the original Oculus 5m / 16ft Link Cable on the >Oculus store<.
If you’re wondering about the price of 79.- it’s made of glass fibers to achieve the extra length.

Once the Quest is physically connected, the Quest can be used equivalently to a Rift S.
Also, this applies when wondering which games are compatible with Cybershoes.
See this link for our recommendations on >cable management<.
