A 6DOF headset (6 degrees of freedom) tracks six movements of the user: three head movements and three spatial movements.

  • tilt his head to right and left
  • turn his head to right and left
  • tilt his head forward and backward
  • move forward and backward
  • walk to right and left
  • go up and go down

The headset tracks the movements and gives the user a vision close to reality and a freedom of movement. It’s a more advanced technology than 3DOF that requires compatible applications.
