Sulon Technologies Enters VR Race with New Kind of Immersive Experience
Sulon Technologies�is unveiling a new kind virtual reality platform that will turn any room into a fanciful virtual space.
Sulon is showing off its demo of The Cortex virtual reality "spatial gaming" platform at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco. In doing so, the company is trying to win over the hearts of game developers in what is becoming a fierce competitive battle to define the next generation of gaming. Competitors include�Oculus VR�and new entrant Sony, which announced its Project Morpheus�at the GDC on Tuesday evening.
The Toronto company has taken a different approach from other kinds of virtual reality, said Dhanushan (Dhan) Balachandreswaran, chief executive of the firm. You wear a headset with goggles that cover your eyes. It then uses magnetic technology to detect the borders of the room. It can then take game imagery and virtually paint those images onto the walls of the real room. So it's like layering a fantasy world on top of the real world.
