SIGGRAPH attendees “test drive” immersive experience co-designed with Daimler China’s IT Innovation Lab to bridge real and virtual worlds
SAN JOSE, Calif., July 25, 2016 – uSens, Inc., a Silicon Valley-based startup specializing in natural hand-and-head tracking technologies for Augmented and Virtual Reality (ARVR), will showcase a new collaboration with Daimler China IT Innovation Lab at this week’s SIGGRAPH 2016 trade show in the Anaheim Convention Center.
This new demo is powered by uSens’ cutting edge 26DOF (degrees of freedom) hand tracking and 6DOF head tracking. It lets participants observe and interact with the exterior and interior details of a 3D car model in ARVR, while enjoying a pleasant virtual drive over the Golden Gate Bridge. SIGGRAPH attendees can be among the first to “test drive” this demo by visiting uSens at booth #751.
uSens’ technologies leverage 3D HCI, machine learning, and computer vision techniques to enable natural, intuitive experiences in ARVR. With the world’s first 26 DOF mobile hand tracking solution, uSens liberates ARVR users from cumbersome peripheral devices such as handheld controllers or complex outside cameras. Along with the new demo, SIGGRAPH attendees can experience uSens’ tracking technologies in additional mobile and PC-based demos for applications such as entertainment and education.
“ARVR won’t reach its potential to create a truly immersive experience unless hardware makers and content developers overcome the challenges of natural hand and head tracking on both PC and mobile platforms,” said Dr. Yue Fei, CTO and co-founder of uSens. “We’re excited to provide the SIGGRAPH audience the first opportunity to take our ARVR application for a ‘test spin’.”
