Guardian Intrusion Feature Found In v32 Firmware For Oculus Quest 2


1 min read

Basti564, a Twitter user, discovered updated graphics and settings options for the ‘Guardian Intrusion Detection' interface, which was first discovered in March and is now known as ‘Space Sense.'


On Twitter, Basti564 shared a video of new graphics and an explainer video within the Quest running on v32. We were also able to obtain the graphics. We can see ‘Space Sense' in Settings, under Device, which is a currently dormant feature that shows an outline of people and objects moving in front of you while using a roomscale boundary.
On v32, the feature and menus shown above are not available natively to Quest users. UploadVR, on the other hand, was able to use the adb commands to bring up the menu and enable the feature on a Quest 2. For the time being, the menus appear to be just a placeholder — the feature didn't work in our testing, even after it was enabled via hidden menu.


The following is a transcription of the dialog box text:
To see outlines of people and things inside your Roomscale boundary, enable Space Sense. While in VR, staying aware of what's going on around you can help keep you and others safe.


As long as the outline is within your boundary and directly in front of your headset, you can see it up to 9 feet away. This feature can be turned off at any time in Settings.
Basti564 also shared a screenshot of the new explainer animation, which depicts a Beat Saber player being alerted by a ghost-like visual of someone entering their play area and walking across their field of view. It also demonstrates a user who can see visualizations of objects in their play area. Currently, the Quest can detect objects during guardian setup, but this feature appears to visualize them during regular use.
