Project Alloy is Intel's wire-free, standalone head-mounted display. The headset was built on the idea that a great experience is the true product of virtual reality. Towards this, the headset integrated several technologies believed to be critical for next-generation virtual reality experiences: embodied interaction by way of hand-tracking, user-safety capabilities powered by realtime 3D reconstruction, and enhanced presence through low-latency inside-out head tracking.
Project Alloy was conceived as a spirtual successor to my interaction design prototype using dual Intel RealSense™ R200 cameras affixed to an HTC Vive in the spring of 2016.
Later announced as a reference design, my work touched nearly every aspect of the Alloy prototype -- from silicon selection to internal C++ SDK, showcase demos, and user-experience research. You can catch me on video being interviewed by Fast Company at CES 2017.
