The displays are said to eliminate jitter, achieve “photorealistic imagery” and is the first VR headset to offer a “full room-scale experience, letting you get up, walk around and explore your virtual space, inspect objects from every angle and truly interact with your surroundings.”
The headset will work without the need of a controller, instead connecting to something called the Steam VR base station, which which allows the user to walk around a virtual 15 feet by 15 foot spaces.
