The 2015 Game Developers Conference took place last week, and the major story was the influx of virtual reality headsets.
Specifically, more insight into Sony’s first party, Playstation 4 compatible “Project Morpheus.” Project Morpheus is a virtual reality headset developed by Sony that was announced at last year.
Sony provided several new details about the tech, such as it being equipped with an OLED screen that runs on a 5.7 inch 1920 x RGB x 1080 screen with 120Hz refresh rate and super-low latency, which basically means the software will read your inputs near-instantly.
Project Morpheus is also equipped with 9 LED’s for positional tracking, along with the option to equip 3D audio to give you a rich, full immersive 360 degree view of the world around you.
It was also announced that Project Morpheus can output gameplay from the headset to your television, so that friends can join in on the fun without having to buy very pricey headsets.
The most exciting bit of news was that Sony plans to commercially release Project Morpheus in early 2016. It seems the next step in technology is preparing to make itself available to the masses. Multiple name brand companies have announced they are developing their own form of virtual reality, such as HTC, Valve, Microsoft and the Facebook owned company, Oculus VR.
