VR Technology Progresses

New VR Lens

Full steam ahead with Valve’s new contribution to the VR viewing experience. Take a look at how their new lenses will improve the visual and motion effect in immersive headsets. “The lenses, which are designed to support the next generation of room-scale virtual reality, optimize the user’s perceived tracking experience and image sharpness while reducing stray light,” said Valve in a press release about their newest VR lenses. Valve is known for developing Steam’s digital distribution platform and was one of the partners that helped HTC Vive headsets become a reality. #HTCVive #headset #VR #virtualreality #lens #VRheadset #Valve #immersion #realistic #welcometothefuture
