Oculus Rift founder Palmer Luckey has announced he will have a solution for virtually reality locomotion sickness available via open-source later this year.
Next five years:1) Universal solution for vestibulo-oculular mismatch in virtual reality2) Superhuman sensory perception/reaction for a handful of people3) Predictive analytics indistinguishable from time travel in some cases4) VTOL air taxis5) 0 to 60 in 0.8 secondsAugust 21, 2018
When pressed to elaborate on the original claim, Luckey clarified (Reddit, via Resetera) that the solution would include “hardware and software” and that he aimed “to open-source the design later this year”.
Hardware and software. I am aiming to open-source the design later this year. Not aware of anyone else working on this branch of the problem.August 22, 2018
He added that he was “not aware of anyone else working on this branch of the problem”.
And that’s not all. In the same series of tweets posted earlier this week, Luckey also predicted that within the next five years, not only would there be a “universal solution for vestibulo-oculular mismatch in virtual reality”, but also “superhuman sensory perception/reaction for a handful of people”, “predictive analytics indistinguishable from time travel in some cases”, “VTOL air taxis”, and “0 to 60 in 0.8 seconds”.
