HP wants to add “blended reality” features—including VR and 3D printing—to laptops and desktops running the Chrome OS and operating systems other than Windows, the report says.
HP already has desktop computers that assist in creating and consuming Virtual Reality content. Sprout PCs have projectors and 3D cameras that can scan, create and manipulate 3D images and objects.The 23.6-inch Zvr monitor allows users to modify objects “in thin air” with a stylus-like pointer and 3D glasses.
Virtual Reality using web technologies is a promising area for Chrome OS to explore. I would imagine that the Chrome team is already working on something, given all the recent fuss around VR. We already have Virtual Reality Chrome experiments. Now it is time for more powerful apps that can create Virtual Reality content right from your Chrome tab.
We will have to wait more details on how HP is planning to bring Virtual Reality to Chromebooks. Will there be some kind of VR support on-board the third generation Pixel Chromebook?
