Project Alloy is the new VR headset that Intel has been working on. This particular VR technology is wireless and has its own personal battery and processor.

Alloy is pretty cool as it locates rooms for you and keeps a track of your fingers so that you can interact with virtual objects.
The camera which is part of Intel’s push around “merged reality” that lets you experience VR and augmented reality as a single unit allows you to see other objects as well as people around you.
This former mentioned concept is similar to Microsoft’s "mixed reality" with HoloLens. This Holographic platform owned by Microsoft will assume an important position with the Alloy hardware.
The Holographic platform will be accessible to all Windows 10 PCs from next year and Intel’s Alloy hardware specifications and APIs will become an open source from next year.
Brian Krzanich, CEO of Intel made the following statement at the IDF keynote today, “"Anyone can take Alloy hardware, combine it with Windows Holographic, and build a world-class VR system.”
A demo was given by a rep from Intel to showcase the Project Alloy headset. Whilst wearing this headset he was able to navigate through a virtual room while simultaneously move around on the stage.
Although the headset took a few minutes to recognize the rep’s hand it was impressively able to do so when the rep made the move to a door in VR. This project by Alloys is significant when it comes to the future of VR as well as AR.
