“AR will inevitably change the very nature of human existence, much as the smartphone has. Therefore, we believe that it’s critical that we all have a hand in shaping it. However, it’s still hard to get your hands on AR hardware that allows you to begin working with the virtual fabric, from which this new kind of existence—and the human interactions that will characterize it—will be sewn.”
“An open-source, community-driven AR hardware platform with Unity and SteamVR integration, built around the world’s most advance optical hand-tracking technology. Featuring brilliant 1440x1600px per eye displays at up to 120Hz.”
