VRTogether was excited to hear about Microsoft’s new depth sensor Kinect4Azure (K4A). Now this sensor has been successfully integrated to VRTogether by CERTH. The new volumetric capture will offer high quality representations which is critical for immersing each user of VRTogether to a realistic virtual experience. Fine details such as facial expressions, will boost the emotional engagement of each user, significantly contributing to achieve VRTogether ‘s objective which is to provide an interactive experience for multiple remote users inside the VR space.
