#2: VRXCity is the world’s first cryptocurrency powered VR porn brand
A cryptocurrency fair held at a venue near the Houses of Parliament in the UK, saw great diversity of brands and products being exhibited. While there were traditional financial services aligned cryptocurrency products on show, there was one other company that drew everybody’s attention.
The name of the company is Me.Mento and their product, VRXCity is the first-of-its-kind interactive adult VR game that not only lets you watch and hear eroticstars (as they call it) perform in front of you, but TOUCH them as well. Yes, you read it right.
You can now watch over 900 eroticstars perform for you, while you sit back and relax and just when you can’t hold it in any longer, you can reach out and feel them where ever you want. But that isn’t half of it. Another unique aspect of the product is that its cryptocurrency powered. The game has its own token called redBUX and is offering its tokens for a limited period of time (probably around 10 days from the time of writing this piece) before their ICO.
But, if you’re not interested in their ICO, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the game or be a part of their process. They are currently in alpha version 1.0.02 and actively looking for alpha testers. So, get on and register with this new upcoming adult VR game!
#1: Qualcomm to offer Tobii eye-tracking with Snapdragon 845 VR headset
Qualcomm has been working on its Snapdragon 845 VR headset for some time now and we recently covered that Qualcomm released a reference design. The announcement had also mentioned that the headset is slated to have 1024x1152 resolutions per eye which is still less than what HTC offers, considering the Snapdragon 845 is expected to be above the $300 range.
And now, there’s news that Qualcomm and Tobii recently signed an agreement that will see them collaborate to offer eye-tracking with the headset. Tobii works on a technology called “foveated rendering” that focuses on where the eye is looking at and rearranges GPU resources to focus on that particular area.
Alternatively, the GPU could also blur out the remaining sections and focus only on the area where the eye is looking at. This will add a new dimension of immersion for the current users, especially since increasing resolution and sharpness of images lies at the forefront of pushing VR technology. In addition to adding more sharpness, Tobii’s technology will also help in-game characters to maintain eye-contact (in essence increasing intimacy) by locating the area of the users gaze. Great news for VR porn loves, isn’t it!
