The latest VR headsets from Sony, Oculus, and Valve offer immersive experiences like this.
They’re designed to replicate the way your eyes, ears, and eyes of course, respond to your surroundings.
The HTC Vive’s head tracking is an example of a VR headset that mimics the way people move their eyes in real life.
The Oculus Rift’s positional tracking lets you see exactly where your head is on the virtual world.
And the Valve VR headset’s trackpad is basically a virtual camera with a touchpad.
All of these are designed to be more comfortable for VR users than the way you might experience them in real-life.
And it’s all pretty impressive stuff.
But how does VR use your eyes in the real world?
Here are 10 questions that you might have when it comes to VR eye tracking.
Do VR eyes actually track?
No, not really.
There’s a difference between the way we use our eyes to see and the way our eyes actually look at things.
That’s why it’s important to know how our eyes work to be able to feel VR content, said Marko Kloog, a neuroscientist at the Max Planck Institute for Neuroengineering in Germany who’s spent years studying eye movement.
For example, when we look at an object, our eyes automatically focus on that object.
That means we’re really just focusing on the object in front of us, Klooog said.
“We see the object as if it’s just a blur in front.
We don’t even notice it.”
Is VR eye movement tracked by your eyes?
Yes, your eyes do move when you look at VR content.
However, if your eyes move in a certain way, your vision doesn’t track those movements, Klaog said, and that’s where eye tracking comes in.
“It’s a good indication that your eyes are doing their job, but your eyes don’t have to move very much in order for the vision to be useful,” Klood said.
What about the eye tracking on the Oculus Rift?
Oculus Rift developers say that the headset’s eye tracking can track eye movements in the virtual space, though it’s not exactly a direct translation of our eyes in front to the real thing.
That makes it hard to tell if you’re actually looking at something in VR.
In fact, you can’t really tell if your head has moved around the virtual reality world because the eye movement is too far away from your eyes to actually detect it.
But if you look closely, your virtual eyes will appear to move.
That could be because your head moves with the motion of the virtual head.
The other big issue is that it’s hard to say if the VR eye trackers actually translate your eyes into the real environment.
This is because VR headsets can have some weird optical problems, and those problems can obscure your eyes from the real-world world.
How much do eye tracking issues really matter?
It’s impossible to know.
Eye tracking has been used for years to track movement of objects in virtual environments, and it’s also possible that eye tracking could translate into a similar degree of accuracy for real-time tracking in VR headsets, Klog said in a statement to Ars Technica.
But the issue here is that this isn’t really a problem with the VR headsets themselves.
It’s that the VR headset developers have not implemented any kind of “optical tracking” technology, which is a method that lets a person’s eyes track objects and then track them in the physical world.
This means that your head and other parts of your body move, but it doesn’t actually translate that movement into the virtual worlds you see.
How do you tell if VR headsets actually use eye tracking?
If you’re looking at a VR display and your eyes look like your eyes would in real world, that could indicate that your eye tracking isn’t working.
However if you move your eyes around in the VR world, you might notice that your pupils don’t move.
This could mean your eyes aren’t tracking things in VR at all.
So it’s more difficult to know whether your eyes have moved.
This issue could also be a sign that the headsets you’re using aren’t accurate enough to work in VR, because the VR glasses you’re wearing might not have any tracking hardware to detect eye movements.
Do Oculus Rift headsets really support VR eye-tracking?
Oculus Rift headset developers claim that the Oculus VR headset does indeed support eye tracking, though there’s no official word on how well it actually does it.
The company’s official statement says that VR headsets are “designed to replicate some of the human visual system’s natural vision” and that it “does not use optical tracking.”
That’s a pretty strong statement considering that it also says that “in certain situations, the VR head trackers may not accurately track a user’s eyes.”
