One of the major things that is holding back the VR experience at the moment is the need for external sensors to establish where you are in the physical realm, and translate that into your location in whatever digital location you’ve been transported to. They add to the complexity of a room-scale set up, and are at least part of the reason why VR has a reputation for needing a complex tangle of cables before being able to enjoy the experience.

As a result, there are headsets in the works from VR industry leaders HTC and Oculus that are attempting to figure out the solution for inside-out tracking – basically allowing the headset itself to sense where it is in space.
