SamsungC-Lab’s FaceSense demonstrates biometric VR navigation : Virtual reality is fast becoming the next big thing in mobile entertainment, and Samsung Electronics continuously seeks new ways to innovate with VR technologies to make the platform more accessible. At the recent VRLA Expo 2017 in Los Angeles, a group of Samsung engineers introduced one of the latest VR products of these efforts: an experimental, hands-free biometric based virtual reality interface that they call FaceSense. The biometric VR navigation solution is an innovative product of C-Lab (Creative Lab), Samsung’s startup business program that nurtures its employees’ creative ideas to develop the technologies of tomorrow. The Samsung C-Lab project presents a new approach to VR navigation that works just as its name implies: by tracking movement in the user’s face.
Biometric Virtual Reality

Biometric VR navigation
Whenever we speak, change our expression or shift our gaze, our faces generate electric signals. FaceSense recognizes and translates these biometric signals into input for VR navigation, allowing users to maneuver through virtual reality worlds with intuitive movements and simple voice commands, rather than reaching for out-of-sight physical controls.

The prototype showcased at the world's largest virtual reality expo in Los Angeles. The VR Expo hosts a thriving community of developers, entrepreneurs, enthusiasts and more, all excited and curious about this modern renaissance of virtual reality, augmented reality and immersive technology.

VR navigation based on biometric data input may one day lead to the development of further biometric technologies that allow more individuals, including those with various usage impediments, to enjoy virtual reality experiences.

The biometric virtual reality navigation solution is based on Samsung’s Gear VR headset. It works by recognizing and translating biometric signals in the user’s face, allowing them to navigate VR worlds hands-free.

The biometric technology registers movement in the user’s eyes and facial muscles, and is also capable of recognizing certain words. The biometric VR headset is currently capable of recognizing common voice commands such as 'home', 'back', 'select' and 'cancel'.
