Developed at Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, "MoVR" system allows VR headsets to communicate without a cord

One of the limits of today's virtual reality (VR) headsets is that they have to be tethered to computers in order to process data well enough to deliver high-resolution visuals. But wearing an HDMI cable reduces mobility and can even lead to users tripping over cords.

Fortunately, researchers from MIT's Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) have recently unveiled a prototype system called "MoVR" that allows gamers to use any VR headset wirelessly.

In tests, the team showed that MoVR can enable untethered communication at a rate of multiple Gbps, or billions of bits per second. The system uses special high-frequency radio signals called "millimeter waves" (mmWaves) that many experts think could someday help deliver blazingly-fast 5G smartphones.
