Silicon Valley-based startup company uSens will be one of the many heading to the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this week with some new virtual reality (VR) compatible tech to showcase. The company will be revealing a new 3D head and hand tracking solution at the event that can also be used with augmented reality (AR). An early peak at the tech can be seen below.
As the video shows, the tracking is able to accurately replicate hand movement within VR experiences, similar to what can be seen with other solutions such as Leap Motion. This will be shown at CES with what the company calls its Super Reality experience, which is said to combine elements of both VR and AR and runs on the company’s Impression Pi HMD. There are plans to release the system commercially this summer.
“Augmented reality and virtual reality technologies will accelerate into the commercial market place very quickly in the next few years. There’s already a race to create the best VR content,” said Anli He, co-founder and CEO of uSens. “Technologies like our 3D hand and head tracking solve critical problems facing mobile AR and VR developers and consumers today that are desiring more immersive and natural feeling AR and VR experiences. Our team at uSens is excited to contribute to the future of our industry.”
VRFocus is at CES to deliver all of the latest updates on VR tech.
