6. now: Raytheon 3D Au­dio by 2015: next-gen vir­tual re­al­ity

Australian T3 - - TRAVEL -

Ocu­lus Rift is close to cracking the vis­ual

side of vir­tual re­al­ity gam­ing, but Raytheon’s 3D Au­dio sys­tem, de­signed to boost pi­lots’ sit­u­a­tional aware­ness by bounc­ing sounds around a 3D au­ral stage, pri­ori­tis­ing the rat-a-tat-tat of in­com­ing fire, is nail­ing the son­ics. Scary dur­ing dog­fights, but it prom­ises to make FPS games al­most as un­bear­ably tense.
