Accommodate more hairstyles
To whom it may concern:
This past month, Marian University held a weeklong healthcare camp for high school students with the goal of increasing diversity within healthcare and reaching out to underrepresented minorities. We utilized the VR technology to take an in-depth look at the human body, however I wanted to provide feedback about the user experience. It was disappointing that many of our participants who identified as BIPOC found difficulty in using, or in 1 case were unable to use, the Oculus Rift S headset. The Oculus Rift S headset is not designed to accommodate natural, black hairstyles including braids and afros. I would encourage the design team at Oculus to consider a variety of hairstyles, particularly hairstyles that are more common in diverse backgrounds, that may be encountered by users of the product. Providing a greater range of motion for the headset adjustment (including a second knob that allows the size to increase from left to right as opposed to only front to back) as well as increasing the overall maximum size of the headset would be extremely beneficial.
Thank you for considering this feedback
