VRLA Summer Expo 2016: How VR Works A Perceptual Point of View
Many technical requirements for VR headsets, such as high-precision positional tracking and low-latency and high-frame rate rendering, stem from how our brains process virtual reality. In this talk, Dr. Oliver Kreylos will describe how VR works at a perceptual level, and how this influences the design of VR hardware and software. He will touch on visual perception, VR headset optics, simulator sickness, and its effects on artificial locomotion in virtual environments.
