Lochlainn Wilson, CTO and cofounder of Fove has spoken about Head Mounted Displays (HMDs) during the interview to VRstatus. He hardly believes that from a hardware perspectives the upcoming 2017 won’t be a year of major new HDMs.
Lochlainn thinks that in 2017 some technologies that were considered to be in hindsight will make absolutely crucial to mainstream acceptance of VR.
He also has reported that eye tracking, inside-out positional tracking and tetherless technologies will all see major advances next year. Only after this is possible to tackle the issues around price, ergonomics and compelling content of the headsets and think about creating new ones has mentioned Wilson.
Fove was founded in May 2014 by Yuka Kojima and Lochlainn WIlson. The company produces the first eye-tracking headset aiming to revolutionize the entertainment, education, gaming and medical industries with gaze control in virtual reality interfaces.
Being already famous for its Kickstarter campaign Fove has raised up over $480K in 2015. And lately Fove has reached to 11 million lately by founding Series A.
