Meet Sony’s Virtual Reality Device: Project Morpheus

project_morpheusAfter the come of the Oculus Rift which is still waiting to be publicly distributed, it looked like the big gaming companies didn’t have anything to join the new race in virtual reality technologies. Now Sony finally “came out of the closet” with this new project called Morpheus. It’s not hard to understand the quotation from the famous sci-fi movie Matrix.

The device, as said by Sony, “will deliver a sense of presence, where you as the player actually feel like you’re inside the game and your emotions feel that much more real”.

The technical specifications of the prototype are a head mounted display with 1080p resolution and a 90 degree field of view, accelerometer and gyroscope sensors built into the head, a new 3D audio technology that “re-creates stereoscopic sounds in all directions and changes in real-time depending on your head orientation”.

Watch the video to know more about this futuristic (but not too much) device.
