“Virtual Reality” now a reality
It has been a long desire of 3D gaming designers to develop a system that will enable the user to have feeling of real life gaming environment. They wanted to make gaming experience as realistic as possible but no matter what a television screens are unable to produce that feeling. So after a long struggle, waiting and with some investments engineers and developers succeeded in making a virtual reality device which enabled the user to have full gaming environment and a chance to enjoying gaming as if he or she were a part of it. A number of tech developer introduced varied types of virtual reality headsets with some variance in there technologies but working under the same principle. It was a huge advancement and progress but it had certain limits.

The virtual reality devices were limited to only a small part of the body that could be generated in the virtual world.

The VicoVR is a full body motion tracking devices that is similar to kinect.
It is able to synchronize with already existing 3D platforms like Google’s Daydream and Samsung VR. The device consists of sensors capable of recognizing 19 body joints by their coordinates and processes the data and passes it to the VR efficiently without any delay. It has a built in processor which uses 10 times less energy than the VR.
