Pico Neo 3

The Pico Neo 3 is a standalone VR headset that is supported by VR Sketch since release 17.

First note that the Pico Neo 3 can be used either as a standalone headset or tethered to a PC with a DisplayPort cable. We tried and failed in testing the second approach (with a Pico Neo 3 Pro), so we cannot support it explicitly for now. Notably, even if you manage to get it working, it will likely show incorrect controllers in VR Sketch.

We only support the Pico Neo 3 in standalone mode.

Installation (in standalone mode)

These instructions are for Windows. It is likely that something similar works on Mac (or Linux) but this has not been tested yet.

  • Connect the Pico Neo 3 to your PC using any USB cable, like for example the charging cable.

  • In the headset go to "Settings", then "Developer Mode". Click and allow "USB Debugging".

  • Go to your PC. A window of the Explorer should have opened automatically with a folder containing the files on the Pico Neo 3. This folder is called "Internal shared storage".

  • Download the APK file for Pico Neo 3 from our download page and copy it into this "Internal shared storage" folder.

  • In the headset, go to the File Manager (bottom right button).

  • At the top of the screen it says "videos", "images" or "APK". Pick "APK", then choose the APK you just copied. Confirm that you want to install it.

  • After installation, VR Sketch should be accessible from the "Library" button. It should be in the folder "All" or in the subfolder "Games" (not "Apps").

More information

For now, please see our documentation about the similar Oculus Quest for more information. We will update this page with more specific information in the future.

Note that many places in VR Sketch still refer to "Oculus Quest" when they really mean "any standalone headset that we support". We will fix this in the future. When working with our software please understand that for now most options that apply to Quest also apply to the Pico Neo 3.
