Foveated rendering, the hope of it, for all things VR, and not just VR porn, it’s something I’ve talked about ad nauseam on these pages, as well as in countless interviews.
It’s the clearest path to widespread uptake of virtual reality, reducing processing demands, and making the prices of even the most high end devices drop dramatically.
Here, Business Insider discusses the Fove brand headset, which is currently available for pre-order. More exciting than the HMD, which we will, rest-assured, get as soon as possible, is the potential for other VR brands to license the eye-tracking technology that makes the Fove brand and its entrepreneurs so interesting to look at.
Of course, one can’t discount the positive effect that eye-tracking has on a VR storyteller’s ability to craft a cohesive narrative, but the foveated rendering possibilities are hands-down, the most exciting feature of the Fove release.
