Facebook can project your eyes onto a VR headset, and it’s exactly as uncanny as it sounds
‘Passthrough VR’ projects your surroundings into the virtual space. ‘reverse passthrough’ would be projecting your face/eyes to the front. Is it the next step needed to really make VR happen? From The Verge:
Facebook Reality Labs wants to help people see your eyes while you’re in virtual reality — even if the results sit somewhere between mildly unsettling and nightmarish. Earlier this week, FRL released a paper on “reverse passthrough VR,” a recipe for making VR headsets less physically isolating. Researchers devised a method for translating your face onto the front of a headset, although they emphasize it’s still firmly experimental.
