Virtual Reality Kit Finch Shift is Launching at CES 2017 to Accelerate The Mobile VR Revolution3:32 AM
Finch, a virtual reality startup, will showcase their Mobile VR Kit based on No-Camera Motion Controller at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
Finch has designed the Shift as the first no-camera motion controller to bring exceptional VR experience to smartphone owners.
The controller employs modified IMU sensors to determine real-time hands' position with sub-centimeter accuracy and a 360-degree tracking range.
Finch Shift's Developer's Kit, priced at $179, includes the sets for both hands, SDK/API, accessories, three demo games and the streaming software pack.
"We believe that Finch Shift VR Kit will accelerate consumers' interest to virtual reality in the near future. The main reasons for slow market expansion have been limited functionality and low quality of content for mobile VR, and prohibitive costs of high-end hardware. With the Shift Kit, anyone who has a decent smartphone can play the best virtual reality games from SteamVR and mobile VR app stores. Plus, you can share the fun with your friends, just like you do it with console gaming," the company's CEO Alexey Kartashov said.In spite of billions of dollars invested in virtual reality startups, current market demand for VR gadgets is significantly below earlier predictions.
The Finch team believes that it has found a solution to the problem.
