Former Oculus VP of Engineering demonstrates long range VR tracking system |

curated by | March 10, 2016

“Tracking is the foundation of great virtual reality. Knowing the position and orientation of the user’s head is essential to being able to move the virtual world convincingly around them as they move through it. Oculus and Valve/HTC have the leading tracking systems (dubbed ‘Constellation’ and ‘Lighthouse’, respectively), but soon a new entrant could join the VR tracking arena.”

John Payne’s insight:
While being developed with the VR market in mind, as with Kinect this technology may turn out to be a useful addition to the roboticist’s toolkit.
