Abstract

We present a low-cost tracking technique for mobile virtual reality (VR) head-mounted displays (HMDs) that uses retro-reflective markers. Our technique allows the built-in cameras of existing smartphones to track real objects even if they are moving rapidly. The user simply attaches retro-reflective markers to the objects or creates unique objects (easily fabricated by 3D printing) and uses them as input devices for smartphone-based HMD applications. Several VR game applications that use our technique are described and testing shows that our technique works effectively.
