Hyve 3D has virtual reality without visors

Hyve 3D creates virtual reality environments without needing visors like Oculus Rift

The 3D images are the result of an optical illusion created by a widescreen high-resolution projector, a specially designed 5 meter-diameter spherically concave fabric screen and a 16-inch dome mirror projecting the image onto the screen. The system is driven by a MacBook Pro laptop, a tracking system with two 3D sensors, and two iPad mini tablets. Each iPad is attached to a tracker. “The software takes care of all the networking, scene management, 3D graphics and projection, and also couples the sensors input and iPad devices,” Dorta explains. “The iPads run a Satellite application, which serves as the user interaction front-end of the system. Specialized techniques render the 3D scene onto a spherical projection in real-time.” The Hyve-3D software also works on conventional 2D displays
