Nolo VR adds Room-Scale to Mobile HMDs

Beijing-based technology company, LYRobotix is bringing a new system to mobile virtual reality (VR) called Nolo VR. Nolo VR utilizes position-based tracking to monitor a user’s movement, much in the same way as Lighthouse does for the HTC Vive (or Guardian for Oculus Rift). Nolo VR plans to add motion control to the mobile VR experience, through its two palm-fitting wand-shaped controllers (typical system configuration shown in Figure below). In addition to improving mobile VR, LYRobotix is partnering with Riftcat’s VRidge software to enable remote play of Steam (Valve’s PC software vendor) VR’s library on a mobile headset.

StarVR, IMAX, and the Future of Cinema

The cinema industry has been experiencing problems for years, ever since the advent of HD TV technology in the home. This past summer saw a largely disappointing blockbuster season (helped largely through the Chinese movie-going market, rather than national gross). With 3D being increasingly seen as a fad and not the next step forward, movie companies are again looking to the future. IMAX looks to have chosen Starbreeze, Acer, and the StarVR as its future.
