Enhancing Virtual Reality Interactions with Modular PeripheralsPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Virtual Reality is an immersive and powerful technology which is already changing computing, entertainment, education, and social networking. Modern VR headsets are capable of comfortably delivering high-resolution, high-framerate content and providing fully mobile motion tracking. Consumer VR systems typically consist of a tracked headset and two tracked hand controllers. However, the system format and technology implementation of commercial VR headsets introduce limitations in the user experience. In this project, we identify three specific interaction limitations present in modern VR and devise a hardware solution for each. The three issues we aim to improve are finger presence, two-handed rigid virtual object interactions, and locomotion.
