Sensics Introduces SmartGoggles™ 3D, 360-Degree Gaming and Entertainment Platform
COLUMBIA, Md., Jan. 6, 2012 /NEWS.GNOM.ES/ — Maryland-based Sensics plans to unveil SmartGoggles™, a new 3D, 360-degree gaming and entertainment platform at the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show.
Sensics’ SmartGoggles™ technology powers new gaming and entertainment goggles that are mobile and feature real-time, first-person 360-degree tracking of the hands, adding intelligence, natural interaction, and true portability to goggle designs.
SmartGoggles™ contain an embedded processor running Android™ to run applications in a standalone mode. The goggles can also be paired with game consoles, phones, tablets, or PCs to provide 3D display and sensing services to these host applications.
“SmartGoggles™ revolutionize 3D goggles in the same way that Smart Phones revolutionized mobile phones,” says Sensics Chief Executive Officer Yuval Boger.
Boger describes an interactive environment in which immersive or see-through goggles include an on-board processor with 3D graphics accelerators that are as powerful as the latest tablets or cell phones. SmartGoggles™ can run practically any Android™ application, connect to the cloud, and communicate with a wide range of surrounding devices.
Unlike traditional goggles that, at best, provide head motion tracking and rely on external devices for video, SmartGoggles™ run applications locally and provide real-time, first-person tracking of the user’s hands. This offers natural interaction with content, games, and applications. First-person hand tracking can go anywhere with the SmartGoggles™, providing limitless tracking area.
Sensics developes SmartGoggles™ technology for consumer-centric gaming and entertainment platforms and head-mounted displays for the defense and professional markets. Sensics products and technologies power training, research, virtual prototyping and other applications worldwide.
