What does DOF mean?

DOF means degrees Of Freedom

DOF (or level of freedom) is a term you encounter at VR, and then it mainly concerns the two terms 3DOF and 6DOF. Both indicate how much freedom of movement you have: with 3DOF it is about moving forward, backwards and up/down. At 6DOF come there: deviation, height and roles. The developments in the field of sensors and controllers are going very quickly so 6DOF will become more common. Incidentally, you'll also find terms like 3DOF and 6DOF in normal (non-VR) games.

What is the Switch?

The Switch is a game console

The Nintendo Switch is a game console that you can use at home on the couch, but also on the go if you are in the train, or if you are in the waiting room. With the Nintendo Switch you play your favorite game wherever you want: everywhere and with everyone. You can connect it to the TV and enjoy a big screen, but without TV it is also good to do. The 2 controllers can be used together or separately, they are called Joy-Con-controllers. The standard joy-con controllers are neon red and neon blue. Give a controller to a friend and go and play together. If you didn't ever have enough time to play a game and so had to stop, you'll get the idea of the Nintendo Switch: You need to adjust your OT, and you just take your game console on the go to continue where you left off.

What is Z-wave?

Z-Wave is a wireless protocol

Z-Wave is the name of a wireless signal used for communication between a base station and other devices. Z-Wave is a protocol used for various IOT devices. The protocol was developed by a Danish company (Zen-Sys) and is now an open standard. Z-Wave uses a low frequency, which has the advantage that it goes better through walls and obstacles than Wi-Fi or Zigbee. A problem with Z-wave is that not every country has received the same frequency, so a US Z-wave product will not work in Europe. So you can't just order a Z-wave product online without taking it into account. Each Z-wave switch/sensor/controller has an antenna (external or internal), so at a bad range it is often possible to use an extender to boost the signal. Z-Wave is also a mesh network: With this network it is therefore possible that Z-wave modules not only with the controller but also among themselves. It is easy to add new Z-Wave products, and you do not need any professional installation or special wiring which often makes other systems expensive.

What does Nunchuk mean?

Nunchuk is a controller

The Nunchuk (sometimes also Nunchuck) is named after the Japanese weapon Nunchaku, but is a piece of plastic that sits nicely in the hand and is stuck to the WII controllers. On top of the Nunchuk sits a stick that you can use for actions like walking, at the rear sit 2 buttons. The Nunchuk is a motion sensitive controller, and allows to play with 2 hands: You can, for example, make a little easier to play a First Person shooter game on the Wii.YouTube MiCtC2WdaS8 [/youtube]
