Irides: Attaining Quality, Responsiveness and Mobility for Virtual Reality Head-mounted Displays

In this video, we present Irides, a stereo HMD system that
simultaneously attains quality, responsiveness and mobility.
Irides achieves this by offloading rendering work to a (possibly
WAN) high-end GPU. The HMD client is mobile and
only requires a wireless network connection, yet receives high
quality and responsive visuals. Irides leverages prior work
to overcome WAN latencies. It employs speculative execution
on the server, and compensates for misspeculation
on the client.
