Correct gaze direction is one critical factor that plays a major role in social interaction. SMI's eye tracking provides this cue accurately, robust and in real-time. Eye tracking inside the Oculus Rift records where exactly in the virtual scene a user is looking and enables people to make eye contact with another avatar in a virtual space."

Touch will be an extremely important part of virtual reality. Haptics are imperative to the experience. Imagine being able to touch the skin of a dinosaur. Next will come smell. All senses will be engaged in the experience of virtual reality!
