The Oculus Quest 2 (now branded as simply "Quest 2" under its parent company, Meta) is a virtual reality headset that is self-contained, requiring no connection to a computer or external tracking devices. That makes it a convenient headset for VR gaming and other experiences.

The only downside? Only one person at a time can take part. To make the VR experience more inclusive, you can cast what the VR gamer is seeing inside the headset onto a TV. It won't be in true 3D, of course, but it lets everyone else be an audience to the action.
