Is Gesture Control The Future Of Phone-Based VR Systems?
A new direction for how we engage with virtual reality content on our devices
While companies find new way to integrate VR into their products, consumers are preparing themselves for even more immersive and dynamic experiences.
EyeSight recently released a demo that shows a new possible direction for phone-based VR headsets. As CNET points out, these headsets “are some of the most affordable ways to experience virtual reality, but they lack the advanced motion-tracking controls of high-end headsets like the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive.”
The demo shows new possibilities for gesture control. In the video, the user can see his surroundings overlaid with graphics. He then interacts with these graphics using his finger. The graphics respond to his movements and create a dynamic exchange.
