"The fusion between ImmersiON and VRelia takes us a step closer to releasing the perfect head-mounted and heads-up device on the market. That, added to the AlterSpace ecosystem, combines virtual reality, augmented reality and artificial intelligence at its best, making the user experience a new kind of reality -- a parallel universe, where the line between the real and the digital world is completely blurred," said Manuel R. Gutierrez Novelo, architect of ImmersiON, AlterSpace, AILEENN and TDVision.
ImmersiON and VRelia have officially announced their partnership in the professional HMD space, and are co-developing a Head Mounted Display / Heads-Up Display (HMD/HUD) for virtual reality and augmented reality applications. While pricing is still unknown, their hardware is being designed to support dual full HD 2160x1920 resolution panels with an unprecedented 120-degree field of view. The ImmersiON-VRelia HMD will also feature the required hardware needed for both augmented and virtual reality experiences. Access the full press release for complete details.
Now THIS is seriously cool. Glasses-free stereoscopic 3D technology has been plagued with all kinds of problems. Limited resolution in 3D, having to sit in a perfect sweet spot to see the 3D, drops in brightness, and lots more. It really hasn't been competitive to stereoscopic 3D through glasses because there were just too many trade-offs, and it's very expensive too.
Cyberith is getting set to launch their Kickstarter in two weeks! A new contender in the VR walking (running?) platform market, their Virtualizer has been getting well publicized as a means for achieving real locomotion in games.
Their solution lets you walk, run, jump, crouch, and sit and features both an SDK for custom development and a keyboard emulator that lets you play existing games without extra coding from the game developer.
Speaking of Kickstarters, come back later today. There is a major innovation in the works with glasses-free stereoscopic 3D displays, and MTBS has the exclusive!
