FOVE HMD arrives

One of the first FOVE HMDs to be shipped to the UK arrived at Thornton Science Park this week. The FOVE is the latest in the new generation of cost effective head mounted displays. The usp of the FOVE, however, is that it has in-built infra red eye tracking. This will open up new possibilities for user navigation and interacting in a virtual world based on a user's gaze.

We are already working on a neurosurgery application that will benefit from a device like the FOVE. Look out for more news on this to be posted on this web site. For more information on the FOVE see here.
