Smartphone-Based HMD at IEEE VR 2011

I’m traveling to the IEEE Virtual Reality Conference in Singapore this weekend. I’m presenting a poster describing our prototype head mounted display which uses two smartphones as displays and 3D rendering engines.

The cool thing about this prototype is that it is completely wireless. The phones do all the rendering. We use a Phasespace Impulse motion capture system for head tracking, but all that head tracking data is transmitted to the phones over WiFi.

We have a number of other posters and talks at IEEE VR from our lab. We have a presentation on redirected walking, our software toolkit FAAST which lets you control any application using the Microsoft Kinect, and a poster that shows how the Kinect can put real people into virtual reality scenes.
