Intel has unveiled its take on virtual reality with the announcement of Project Alloy.
The wireless headset is described as an “all-in-one virtual reality solution,” which provides a merged reality. It combines objects in the real world, including the wearer’s hands, with objects produced in virtual reality.
Project Alloy is also capable of sensing objects such as walls, which it then shows the wearer via the internal viewer, so they know not to walk forward.
Intel said the headset is capable of "a free range of motion with 6 degrees-of-freedom across a large space."
However, before you get too excited about Intel’s take on virtual reality, you should note that Intel isn’t planning to sell the devices itself. Instead, it plans to make the technology available to other manufacturers.
