There is a Samsung patent on the net, suggesting that the new generation of Gear VR goggles can be significantly upgraded. The documents indicate that on board it has the opportunity to find the technology of eye and face tracking.
Samsung Gear VR is one of the cheaper ways of experiencing virtual reality, although not available to everyone. Goggles only work with selected smartphone models of this manufacturer, which limits their usability.
However, the company managed to maintain a low product price of $ 99, although it is occupied with some imperfections in terms of its functionality. Goggles do not offer the same capabilities as the Oculus Rift or the HTC Vive, so it is not easy to find the eye and face tracking functions.
Samsung also noticed the limitations of its product, as a patent appeared in the network, indicating that the new generation of Gear VR goggles could be greatly improved. Disclosed documents indicate that the device is likely to receive the missing technology. It will include a camera and LED lights that will be used to track the position of the head. On the other hand, the camera inside the goggles will monitor the face and eye position.
