A great VR experience is one that is immersive and compelling - that is what Ximmerse works to create. Ximmerse is a tech company focused on the R&D of mobile visual computing. Since its establishment in January 2015, the company has been developing methods of computer vision to solve inputs for mobile VR. The company’s solution provides users with new possibilities of interacting in the virtual world. With offices in Guangzhou, Shenzhen and Los Angeles, the company strives to create the perfect input solution for mobile VR. <p> </p>
The Ximmerse kit is an outside-in solution that adds positional tracking to VR headsets and other peripherals. It consists of a stereo camera, a pair of motion controllers with LEDs, and an LED marker that can be easily affixed onto your mobile VR headset for headset tracking.
The stereo camera accurately tracks the position of the LED marker on the headset so it can tell your position in 3D space. It also tracks the LEDs on the motion controllers to tell where your hands are in the virtual environment. Additionally, advanced motion sensors are placed in the controllers to precisely track fast and subtle movements of your hands. Altogether, this results in a complete VR experience that is compelling and immersive.
The Ximmerse kit is optimized specially for mobile. However, it can run on PC applications as well. A separate SDK which allows development for PC applications will be released in the near future.
To use the Ximmerse kit, you will need a Samsung Gear VR headset (Innovator Edition or latest Gear VR 2) and a Samsung Galaxy S6. External battery pack wise, any battery pack is fine as long as it is at least 5000mAh with a power output of 1A.
One of our goals is for the Ximmerse kit to be compatible with all mobile VR platforms. Currently, we highly recommend the Samsung Gear VR headset as it gives the best mobile VR experience. Couple that with a top-of-the-line Samsung phone and you get a controlled, standardized, VR experience. As Cardboard continues to evolve and the experience gets better, we will definitely push out support for Cardboard apps.
Our goal is to become the standard go-to peripheral for mobile VR experiences. At this point, we have distributed a number of prototypes to game developers and studios from all over the world. The feedback thus far is extremely positive and we have developers who are very excited to create content for our hardware. Upon launch, there will be at least 20 games that will be compatible with our Ximmerse kit.
