Google demonstrated the technology through a collaboration with ILMxLAB, which brings cinematic-level of quality from Star Wars to mobile VR. Now, that wouldn't be very impressive if we were just talking about 360 videos, but Google's Seurat approach actually generates sharp, properly rendered geometry which means that it retains real volumetric data, allowing players to walk around in a room-scale space rather than having their head stuck in one static point.

Ningún político ha sido tratado peor: Trump
El mandatario ruso anunció su disposición a entregar a Estados Unidos la transcripción del polémico encuentro entre Trump y los funcionarios rusos en la Casa Blanca .

But at the Google I/O, they introduced a new technology called Seurat, named after the famed Post Impressionist French painter, that should solve that problem.

Jefferies Group Analysts Lower Earnings Estimates for Baker Hughes Incorporated (BHI)
The company reported EPS of $-0.24, below the consensus estimate calling for EPS of $-0.21 - a negative surprise of -12.62%. The business had revenue of $2.26 billion during the quarter, compared to the consensus estimate of $2.27 billion.

Today at I/O 2017 Google introduced Seurat, a new rendering technology that's created to take ultra high-quality CGI assets that couldn't be run in real-time even on the highest performance desktop hardware, and format them in a way that retains their visual fidelity while allowing them to run on mobile VR hardware. Developers will be able to do high-fidelity rendering of scenes for the mobile virtual reality platform in real time. Basically developers can set a bounded perspective region using Seurat. The way that Seurat works is by taking renders of a 3D scene from different viewpoints and angles, and then mapping these renders to a "low-polygon VR scene".
