At GDC 2014, SCE has just introduced its new prototype virtual reality system that works with PS4. According to the post on the PlayStation Blog, the new VR technology will allow the player to actually feel like they’re inside the game and emotions feel much more real.
The current prototype for Project Morpheus features a head mounted display with 1080p resolution and a 90 degree field of view. The head-mounted display is fitted with accelerometer and gyroscope sensors which will accurately tracks head orientation and movements, so as your head rotates, the image of the virtual world rotates in real-time.
Project Morpheus also features our new 3D audio technology that re-creates stereoscopic sounds in all directions and changes in real-time depending on your head orientation. In addition to PlayStation Camera, Project Morpheus works with DUALSHOCK 4 Wireless Controller and PlayStation Move to deliver an easy-to-use, plug-and-play VR experience.
Apparently, the team behind Project Morpheus has been working on the project for the past three years, it will serve as the first development kit for PS4 developers that are as enthusiastic about this new virtual reality gaming platform.
