"Next Generation" Virtual Reality Headset

Researchers Unveil New Virtual Reality Headset (+Video)

Try on any virtual reality headset and within a few minutes the sense of wonder might wear off and leave you with a headache or a topsy-turvy stomach.
Computational imaging experts say that's because current virtual reality headsets don't simulate natural 3D images. Now, researchers in the Stanford Computational Imaging Group have created a prototype for a next-generation virtual reality headset that uses light-field technology to create a natural, comfortable 3D viewing experience. With help from NVIDIA Corp., their findings will be presented and demonstrated Aug. 9–13 in Los Angeles at SIGGRAPH 2015, a conference that focuses on computer graphics and interactive techniques.

  1. Virtual reality is a form of technology which creates computer generated worlds or immersive environments which people can explore and in many cases, interact with.
