The next generation VR headsets will support AR porn

VR headset manufacturers are increasingly looking to create the next big thing. Increasing per eye resolution and including room tracking can only take you so far. While Oculus was the first to bring room tracking (or room scale as they call it) to the mass market. But soon, all the manufacturers will start building it into their headsets in bid to stay competitive.

In fact a look at the smartphone market will tell you all there’s to know about competition. There are two aspects in which companies will compete - price and features. The premium headsets will all start featuring room tracking and high per eye resolution. As a result, the ability to remain part of the industry will depend on next levels of innovation.

When talking about virtual reality, any discussion about the next level automatically spills over to augmented reality. VR itself is built on 3D projection, visual quality and audio quality. As a result, there are limits to VR. You can immerse yourself in content that looks like real but it won’t feel real. Also, you’ll have to separate your reality and virtual world, which can be troublesome since it isn’t practical to spend hours in a virtual world.

As a result, AR will be the next frontier for headset manufacturers to look at. In fact, Windows mixed reality headsets are proof of this theory. Not only that, more and more new generation headsets are looking to include reality integration with virtual reality. A look at the new Valve Index will tell you that this trajectory has already started taking effect.

The Index’s ability to create ‘passthrough’ is a nod to the augmented reality feature. While AR includes a whole different world of capabilities, it’s basic ability is to mesh VR and reality. Index’s passthrough does exactly that. As headset manufacturers keep pushing the envelope, VR will soon spill over to AR and what we know at VR porn will, in a way, merge with AR porn. Only thing is, it will be better. AR will offer the ability to interact within existing real-life environments.

The Valve Index will set the bar high with its high per eye resolution, over-the-ear headphones and passthrough capabilities. Soon enough, Valve’s long-time partner, HTC, Oculus and other manufacturers will look to include such capabilities. As that happens, consumers will no longer need to order AR headsets. The same headset will run both AR and VR porn.

There’s still a small minority who are no sold on the VR immersion. With AR porn, the minority will possibly be won over. So, the next time a new headset comes to market, hold your horses and don’t go buying it. Struggle a bit longer with your current HMD and it will allow you to save some big bucks in the long run. Buy a headset which will essentially serve both purposes, at the cost of one.
