Wired Quotes Mark Bolas on Near Field VR

June 12, 2015

Mark Bolas was quoted in a Wired story about the Oculus Touch, a two-handed interface that brings haptic feedback and a sense of touch to the VR experience.

“There is a special place in virtual reality—we call it Near-Field VR,” says Mark Bolas, director for mixed reality research at USC’s Institute for Creative Technologies. “It is the place that is within arm’s reach of a user, and it is magical, as it provides the best stereoscopic and motion cues of VR. Hands are very important to enable interaction in this region.”
