OculusGo KioskMode

This application is aimed at customizing the oculus go startup process to use these devices within exhibitions. It disables the store and overwrites the welcome screen. So the user only has acces to one predefined application.

It is implemented as a minimal android launcher that executes your application as soon as the Oculus Go has finished booting. Then, as you look inside and press the volume button, your application will focus again or restart if necessary.

The key feature is a custom overlay (.jpg image file) to hide and override the default "Enter VR" welcome screen.
