Remember the LG VR 360? No? It doesn't matter: the new LG VR prototype looks worlds better. It's based on the same technology as the HTC Vive, and it's got some cool additions too. Let's take a peek at what's new.
Like the Vive, LG's headset uses Valve's Lighthouse base stations, which house spinning laser emitters that sweep the room and land on the optical sensors built into the headset and controllers. That's how they know where they are, so you can walk around the room.
Here are the new controllers. Updates include a slightly better grip, slightly different positions for the buttons, a second program-dependent app button, and what LG claims is slightly better tracking.
