Love VR, but afraid of tripping over your cat? A new high-tech jacket will help solve that problem by tracking your cat into the virtual world. The VR Tracked Cat is a wearable device that allows players to see their pets while in virtual reality. Triangular Pixels’ device uses HTC Vive’s new tracker, which is attached to a modified cat jacket. With the help of coding, your feline friend appears in-game and is tracked while it moves around. The VR Tracked Cat is still an early prototype, but the company hopes to develop it for other pets and even children.
