One of the biggest technological breakthroughs in today’s VR devices is the ability to achieve 6DOF (six degrees of freedom) tracking and wireless transmission


In addition to greatly reducing the weight of the headset and the size of the computing host, current VR devices are capable of 6DOF (six degrees of freedom) tracking and wireless transmission. In the past, most VR devices, including today’s mobile VR, were 3DOF tracking and could only recognize the rotation of the head from left to right. If you squat down or move around, the virtual world you see will not change your perspective with your movements.

The Vive’s current 6DOF tracking allows players to move in a space of 3×4 meters at will, and the VR perspective you see will also change with you in real time, thus gaining a stronger sense of VR immersion.

With the TPCast wireless upgrade kit, you can also get rid of the cables, allowing the experiencers to move more freely in the space. These are the technological breakthroughs that VR inventors dreamed of in the past.
