Meta Reveals VR Headset Prototypes Designed to Make VR ‘Indistinguishable From Reality’
Meta says its ultimate goal with its VR hardware is to make a comfortable, compact headset with visual finality that’s ‘indistinguishable from reality’. Today the company revealed its latest VR headset prototypes which it says represent steps toward that goal. Meta has made it no secret that it’s dumping tens of billions of dollars in...
Meta Research Explores a New Solution to One of VR’s Biggest Display Challenges
New research from Kent State University and Meta Reality Labs has demonstrated large dynamic focus liquid crystal lenses which could be used to create varifocal VR headsets. Vergence-Accommodation Conflict in a Nutshell In the VR R&D space, one of the hot topics is finding a practical solution for the so-called vergence-accommodation conflict (VAC). All consumer...
Researchers Show Full-body VR Tracking with Controller-mounted Cameras
Researchers from Carnegie Mellon University have demonstrated a practical system for full-body tracking in VR using cameras mounted on the controllers to get a better view of the user’s body. Although it’s possible to achieve full-body tracking in VR today, it requires the use of extra hardware that needs to be strapped onto your body...
NVIDIA Researchers Demonstrate Ultra-thin Holographic VR Glasses That Could Reach 120° Field-of-view
A team of researchers from NVIDIA Research and Stanford published a new paper demonstrating a pair of thin holographic VR glasses. The displays can show true holographic content, solving for the vergence-accommodation issue. Though the research prototypes demonstrating the principles were much smaller in field-of-view, the researchers claim it would be straightforward to achieve a...
Prototype Meta Headset Includes Custom Silicon for Photorealistic Avatars on Standalone
Researchers at Meta Reality Labs have created a prototype VR headset with a custom-built accelerator chip specially designed to handle AI processing to make it possible to render the company’s photorealistic Codec Avatars on a standalone headset. Long before the company changed its name, Meta has been working on its Codec Avatars project which aims...
