Work: Inside-out 6-DoF Positional tracking for Mobile VR

05 October 2016

Last week Occipital announced the VR Dev Kit, and a public preview of our kickass positional tracking inside of Bridge Engine. As part of the launch, I did a lot of stuff! Here’s the video that I wrote, shot, edited, and narrated:

I also designed the system with our in-house 3D team, prototyped it all on our 3D printer (an Ultimaker 2), and am currently helping to kit and ship the orders with Lauren. Being this close to every part of a product is really exciting and scary, but so worth it when it works.

Update: We got featured on TechCrunch!
