Selfies in Virtual Reality

NewImage

From psfk:

In the demo, Schroepfer connected with a colleague miles away. Inside virtual reality, both Schroepfer and his colleague were in the same room and standing across each other (or sitting on chairs, hard to tell).

Each had a humanoid avatar, more cartoonish than realistic. Although the torsos and legs were missing, the hands and floating head didn’t look as weird. What’s most striking is the way the hands waved around and making gestures. Although it was obvious the colleague exaggerated a bit in terms of using his hand, it did highlight the natural motion rendered by VR.

Inside this made-up world, the tandem were able to switch environments quickly using 360-degree photographs. They were able to interact with virtual objects including pens to draw a tie and bowtie the avatars wore. The demo ended in a VR selfie, using a virtual selfie stick and virtual camera. The result was a photo with London’s Big Ben, taken in a VR environment, with VR avatars using a VR camera.
