Virtual reality goggles on the way from Sensics

Boot Camp feature for Thursday, March 8, 2012

Ready for virtual reality goggles?   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.     There have been efforts for years to make head gear for a virtual reality experience in games for the most part.    Much of the progress has been made in military and industrial applications.   Now one of the companies in that field, Sensics, is entering the consumer space ..with partners in the consumer electronics field.   How is what they are doing different from head mounted displays from Sony and others?   Sensics CEO Yuval Boger…

“The eyewear that’s on the market is essentially a media viewer.  It allows you to play media in essentially a non interactive way through the goggles.  It doesn’t interact with you.  It doesn’t sense where your head is.  It doesn’t sense where your hands are.   It doesn’t allow you to run games or other interactive applications on board . ”

The company is hoping to see goggles using its technology in stores by the end of the year.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
