Sony Could Soon Alert VR Users Of Real-Life Obstacles Using Notifications

The VR headset could become capable of alerting the user of any humans or animals nearby using a dynamic 3D audio system.

Seems fair enough, no-one wants to smack a toddler in the face because of a game.

Saying that, this isn't a consideration for everyone, so it should be an option so that imperfect detection doesn't ruin our games - anyone with a new car knows the sensors and driving aids can drive you nuts. I turn them all off. I'll drive, thanks.

never rely on the sensors anyways, lol. Nice to have, but shouldn't replace common sense.

would be cool if it could detect that it's not you, and then say create a different colored outline of the object in question so you know to avoid it or pause your game.

Even with sensors, people would still smack a toddler in the face. When the Wii first came out, people were doing that. And that was with nothing blocking your view... kids just get in the way sometimes.

Fair point. Children get in the way and adults probably aren't paying attention if they're gaming, I guess.

I would never play PSVR2 while my young children are home and awake . They need supervision and having a headset on is asking for my house to be torn up (or worse) and it would be my fault for not being able to see them.

This would be useful i reckon! The wife and kids seems to think its funny to tickle my neck or face while I'm playing....also when I was playing horizon looking down over a cliff one of the kids thought it would be funny to push me in the back....almost had a heart attack lol

My niece and her toddler moved in with my family. Her kid almost got pistol whipped during a game of pistol whip.
