Tongyu's In-class Activity
Prep - Install the APK file
Download the following APK file on your desktop: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1MLGeuxPymVJetHECHIBVpeYSlY4cICrj/view?usp=sharing
Follow the steps outlined here to sideload this APK file onto your Quest 2. Now, you should be able to open it on your Quest as a standalone normal application!
You don't actually need a fancy USB-C cable -- the default charging one works
(Slight modification: the steps to enable Developer mode should be mobile Oculus app -> Menu -> Devices -> select your Quest 2 -> Developer Mode)
In this activity, you will be visualizing an audio recording of a humpback whale song in a collaborative VR space. While you have your own instance of the audio and can play/pause freely, note that the increase/decrease volume and hold & move to rotate functions are shared. In addition to the controls depicted below, you can also point directly at the bottom of the visualization to see the amplitude/frequency of the sound signal at that point.
Task 1: Pick a point when you want to examine the audio visualization further and press the "A" button to toggle pause.
Take a screenshot of you pointing at a visible signal with the largest frequency.
Take a screenshot of you pointing at a visible signal with the smallest frequency.
Task 2: The sound of another animal seems to have gotten mixed in with the humpback whale noises! Can you detect when this happens?
Take a screenshot of you pointing at the visualization of this mysterious noise.
