Express Yourself in VR with High Fidelity
Within a couple of years people will be able to interact in virtual worlds more naturally as cameras and sensors translate their real world movements and expressions to their virtual counterparts. This is the prediction of Philip Rosedale who has created the startup High Fidelity, a platform for virtual worlds where people can meet, interact and do business.
His systems utilise motion and infrared sensors to track head and hand movement while a 3D camera logs the facial expression and eye movement of the user.
If Rosedale's name is familiar it's for good reason; he created one of the best-known online virtual worlds, Second Life, which boasts one million regular users.
While predicting that the applications of High Fidelity would be very wide in range, Rosedale said his creation could spell a new way that employees could work together.
