New Hits

We’ve experienced some overarching themes this year at Siggraph. As we are getting used to virtual reality, there are certain things starting to stick out.

It’s About the Feeling

Haptic feedback was one of the most shown features inside the VR Village. To name a few:

  • Hapbeat’s “wearable body speaker” – a device that brings music listening to a whole new level
  • Cornell University’s Organic Robotic lab introduced “Omnipulse” – a soft rubber sleeve for the HTC Vive controllers simulating kinesthetic feedback
  • Immersion Research’s “Touch Hologram Mid-Air” – a device colocating visual and sensorial feedback in holograms

New Prospects for the Future

Other highlights from our perspective were new 360 cameras, eye tracking integrations, and wearable backpacks:

  • Vuze displayed their new consumer priced stereoscopic 360 camera
  • NVIDIA showcased its VRWorks 360 Video, capable of live stitching 4K video
  • HP introduced the wearable Z VR Backpack PC
  • Tobii showcased the new integration of their eye tracking solution with the HTC Vive headset

Thank you for a great show!

It was a pleasure exhibiting at Siggraph 2017. We had great conversations with many attendees and took away lots of inspiration. We are looking forward to seeing more new developments in VR!

We would also like to extent special thanks to Computer Graphics World for honoring WorldViz with a Silver Edge Award for Vizible, the next generation in communications for sales professionals!
