【谷歌为“Daydream”耳机测试了一些新的功能】Google为早些发布的Daydream耳机引入了一些新的实验特性。首先是透视模式,一种让用户通过VR耳机看到周围真实空间的设置。它通过一个实验应用程序演示了这一特性,该应用程序允许佩戴者在现实世界中放置虚拟家具。其次,通过添加API使虚拟现实中更真实、更自然的运动成为可能。谷歌还开发了一套使用机器学习和现成的部件的6 DoF控制器,而不是昂贵的外部摄像头和传感器。最后,谷歌将使用户可以在他们的“白日梦”设备上打开任何受支持的智能手机Android应用程序。这意味着用户将可以访问各种游戏、工具和其他应用程序。

Google tests see-through mode, better motion tracking for Daydream

The experimental features are designed for Lenovo's Mirage Solo.

Google has introduced some new experimental features for developers working with the Lenovo Mirage Solo, the standalone Daydream headsetreleased earlier this year. First up is see-through mode, a setting that lets the user see the real space around them through the VR headset. Google says this mode plus the Mirage Solo's tracking technology will allow developers to build AR prototypes. It demonstrated an application of this feature through an experimental app that lets Mirage Solo wearers position virtual furniture in a real-world surrounding.

Secondly, the company says it's adding APIs that support position controller tracking with six degrees of freedom, which will enable more real-world, natural movement in VR. Along with that, Google has developed a set of experimental 6DoF controllers (pictured above) using machine learning and off-the-shelf parts instead of expensive external cameras and sensors. "We're excited about this approach because it can reduce the need for expensive hardware and make 6DoF experiences more accessible to more people," Google said in a blog post. Some developers are already working with the controllers and those who would like to can applyhere.

Lastly, Google is making it possible for developers to add Daydream VR support to their apps and users will be able to open any supported smartphone Android app on their Daydream device. That means users will have access to various games, tools and other apps in a larger 3D VR space. The company says developers will be able to try out see-through mode and Android Apps in VR soon.
