That being said, the Oculus Quest's, (wireless version), latest update included real-time hand tracking - obviating eliminating the need for controllers. /Brain-fart ...

it shouldn't take 4 days to get a result. Swab tests take time and meticulous process. Get sample, extract RNA - which will be moderately contaminated because the swab sample will carry a whole slew of other bugs which are just a part of living on this planet - prep the RNA for PCR then actually ru...
