The controls of Magic Leap 2 have integrated cameras like those of Cambria
The official presentation of Magic Leap 2 and its launch are waiting, and as in the case of PlayStation VR2, little data is missing to know. What we have today in a closer look at their controllers, where we see that they integrate cameras, a solution that Project Cambria would also take.
The truth is that attendees at the SPIE Photonics West 2022 fair could already see in a projection that the controllers would have the function of tracking 6DoF based on computer vision, a tracking inside-out based on the placement of cameras in the controllers in addition to the glasses, which allows there to be tracking although these are behind the user’s vision.
6DoF tracking based on proprietary computer vision. Tracks out of the FOV of the screen, even behind the user”
The use of cameras integrated into the dashboard is a solution which is also expected to lead the high-end viewer that Goal will launch this year known as Project Cambria or Seacliff, and is something that could allow the tracking of full body, in addition to avoiding the loss of follow-up when the user places the driver out of reach of the cameras placed in the viewer.
