New 'Furion' software allows untethered high-quality VR

The virtual reality industry is faced with a conundrum: Users must be tethered to a server or PC in order to play high-quality apps.

At the same time, next-generation smartphones and wireless networks will not be advanced enough to sever the tether, say researchers who propose a new software platform to solve the problem.
