Starbreeze deal gives you more freedom to move in VR

If Starbreeze is going to get you wearing VR headsets in IMAX theaters and pods, it’ll have to create a wow-inducing experience… and it might have taken one step closer toward that goal. The company has bought Nozon, a visual effects house whose recent breakthrough is an interactive parallax effect that gives you more freedom when watching computer-generated or 3D-scanned VR video. You ideally get quality closer to pre-rendered 3D, but the freedom to tilt your head and otherwise look around more naturally. You should feel more like you’re present in a given scene, instead of staring at a giant video wall. You don’t need Nozon’s tech to have freedom of movement in VR tracking — just ask HTC . However, existing approaches are generally designed for gaming, not the pay-per-view experiences Starbreeze wants. This could help studios produce VR recreations of movie and TV scenes that you’d actually want to watch , or guided tours that are more immersive than the usual 360-degree video clips . It’ll take a while for this technology to find its way into something you can watch, but it should give you a better reason to leave home for a VR extravaganza. Via: VentureBeat Source: Starbreeze
