Xperience Virtual Attendance Guide
Step 1: Installing the Platform
EDA Xperience is hosted in VRChat, a leading platform for social engagement in virtual reality. Don’t worry, non-VR users are welcome too!
Installation varies depending on how you plan to immerse yourself in the Xperience. If you want to visit through a personal computer, laptop, HTC Vive, or Valve Index, check out the “PC” instructions below. If you’re using an Oculus Quest 2 headset, have a look at the “Oculus” instructions.
First, download and install Steam. You’ll need to make an account after installation.
Then, install VRChat. The program will be installed through Steam, and you can launch it from your Steam library. You’ll be prompted to either log in through your Steam account, or create a new VRChat account.
For attendees using the Oculus Quest 2, attendance couldn’t be any easier! Just install VRChat from the Oculus store.
Then, log in through your existing Oculus account, or create a new VRChat account. That’s all it takes!
Okay, so installing a bunch of new programs can be a bit of a pain. We went ahead and put together a few video tutorials for you, in case you need a helping hand.
Step 2: Navigate the Metaverse
You’ve successfully installed Steam and VRChat, and now you’ve been thrust into a brand new world of online social interaction. Time to get your sea legs — watch this video to learn how to walk, how to talk, and how to make your way around the metaverse.
Step 3: Get a New Style
At this point, you’re moving around the metaverse like a pro! However, you’ve also probably noticed that you’re still on a default avatar that doesn’t look much like you. If you want people to see an avatar that looks like you (and you do!) watch this video to find out how to get your own personalized character.
