Oculus rift


Published on

The Rift is a virtual reality head-mounted display developed by Oculus VR. It was initially proposed in a Kick starter campaign, during which Oculus VR.
The simulation aspect of the Oculus Rift can be put to use as a tool for training. It's one of the more obvious non-gaming applications for the device, mostly because non-VR simulations already exist in many fields, but the quality of simulation is what's important here.

  2. 2. *The Oculus Rift is an upcoming virtual reality head-mounted display, being developed by Oculus VR. *Oculus Rift was invented by a virtual reality enthusiast named Palmer Luckey and later developed with the help of John Cormack.
  3. 3. * *Virtual Reality (VR), is a computer-simulated environment that can simulate physical presence in places in the real world or imagined worlds. *Virtual Reality Simulations have widespread uses in the fields of Fine Arts, Music, Gaming, Military Training, etc. *It involves the recreation of human senses (sight, sound, touch, taste, smell)
  4. 4. * • Uses lenses and a split screen to display 3D graphics • It uses a 7 inch LCD display screen with a resolution of 1280 by 800 pixels. • Screen is divided into 640 by 800 pixels per eye, with a fixed distance between lens centers. • 110 degree field of view

  7. 7. * *Video is sent to the Oculus Rift via HDMI cable. * It also includes USB, which carries data and power to the device.
  8. 8. * • Tracking the position of your head in 3D space is critical to the way the Rift works. • One of the ways it achieves this is with a series of infrared LEDs embedded in the headset, which are monitored by a webcam-like camera placed nearby
  9. 9. * *Feed is send into the headset, which connects to your head via vertical and horizontal straps, with the uppermost strap including the HDMI and USB cable. *Further customisation is achieved with two pairs of lenses, which magnify the screen so it fills your field of view.
  10. 10. *The Screen *Its 1920 x 1080 HD resolution delivers a 960 x 1080 display to each eye. *Its refresh rate of 60 Hz keeps things smooth.
  11. 11. * *Oculus Audio SDK allows the use of Head-Related Transfer Function (HRTF) technology. *HRTFs simulate the changes to a sound when it reaches your head from a point in space. *It does this by referencing data that represents changes that would happen to a sound coming from that direction.
