In his latest presentation at #Oculus Connect 5, #Oculus Chief Scientist Michael Abrash took a fresh look at the five-year #VR technology predictions he made at OC3 in 2016.
His predictions for headset capabilities in the year 2021 were 4K × 4K resolution per-eye, a 140 degree field of view, and variable depth of focus.
Beyond Half Dome, Abrash briefly mentioned two potential solutions for future optics: pancake lenses and waveguides.
Foveated rendering ties closely with eye tracking, the technology that Abrash thought was the most risky of his predictions in 2016.
Controllers & InputRegarding controllers, Abrash stood by his predictions of Touch-like controllers remaining the primary input device in the near future (alongside hand tracking).
Opinion… * Man-Made
According to #Oculus’ Chief Scientist, four years from now, #VR is going to jump to the next level. And that’s just the beginning, as every area will continue to improve, and virtual humans and haptic hands will be along before too long. #Trend
