After testing a prototype version of the Oculus Rift virtual reality device we came away impressed, intrigued, and a little disoriented.
There’s a sensor package strapped to the front of the Oculus Rift headset that includes a gyrometer, accelerometer, and magnetometer and, just like your
phone, the headset uses those sensors to measure how your head is moving in three dimensions.
That data is piped back into the control board and used to process how your character is moving in 3D space, which is then rendered on a 7-inch 720-pixel
LCD display that you watch through two lenses (one over each eye).
They work in tandem to create a stereoscopic 3D image in real time with almost no noticeable latency.
