What the Surreal Vision acquisition means for Oculus
Oculus now has the technology to blend augmented reality with virtual reality.
Oculus VR last week acquired Surreal Vision, a company creating real-time 3D scene reconstruction technology that will allow users to move around the room and interact with real-world objects while immersed in VR.
Brian Blau, analyst at Gartner, believes this acquisition will really help Oculus as their efforts in VR will certainly merge with augmented reality (AR) technologies over the next few years.
"Based on the quality of Microsoft HoloLens and its ability to map topology in front of the user, and also when looking at how can scenes, rooms, and locations be mapped, it's imperative that Oculus start to integrate scene mapping technologies to best be able to deliver compelling immersive content," Blau says.
