The world of virtual reality will be getting more accessible to the public within the next few years thanks to the Movidius VPU.

The Movidius VPU is a small chip, smaller than the tip of a pencil, that would allow for the processing of high-quality virtual reality headsets without needing an expensive and powerful computer. The VPU chip works by taking the data from the VR headset and then making the code that the CPU and GPU much more efficient.

In addition Movidius is working on a new type of headset technology that uses "outside-in" tracking. At the moment popular headsets like the Oculus Rift and the Vive use on-headset tracking which allows for okay head-tracking at best. The outside-in system would work by having cameras on the outside of the headset pointed at the device to track sensors with much greater accuracy. While carrying sensor detecting cameras with you isn't all that practical there is hope that there will be a way to integrate the sensors into the headset.

Upon release of the Movidius VPU high-quality mobile virtual reality will be possible for the general public. The VPU will allow for even older phones to be able to support high-quality VR headsets. You can read more info about this technology at "techradar.com" or on the Movidius website.
