We've learnt quite a lot from Valve's developer-only Steam Dev Days conference, with VR being the focus of the second, and last day of the event. Oculus VR's founder, Palmer Luckey, was a key guest for its VR discussions, where he teased the future of VR.

Luckey said: "Valve's VR tech is the best virtual reality demo in the world right now". This is quite a statement from Luckey, considering his company just received $75 million in Series B funding for Oculus Rift. The specifications of what Valve and Oculus expect from a consumer VR headset for 2015 are very, very promising:

 

Feasible 2015 consumer HDM

 

  • 20ms motion-to-last-photon latency
  • 3ms pixel persistence
  • 95 Hz refresh
  • 110-degree FOV
  • 1K x 1K resolution per eye
  • High-quality, well-calibrated optics

 

Tracking

 

  • millimeter-accurate resolution translation
  • quarter-degree-accurate rotation
  • volume of roughly 2 meters cubed
