President Obama has finally put his marks on virtual reality. For the first time today he tried on a VR wearable (Gestigon’s Carnival SDK with PMD’s 3D sensor). The company provided President Obama along with Chancellor Angela Merkel a chance to see and feel what immersive virtual reality technology is all about.
This technology helps recognize your hands and creates a three-dimensional outline of it. President Obama seemed pretty impressed with the VR gadgetry and we might even venture to say that he’s a fan of it since he already owns a virtual tech product (virtual driving range). The demonstration didn’t last too long but there were some laughs and enthusiasm to be had with the virtual reality products.
