We mentioned before that our new AR development platform is in the making. It hasn’t only generated quite a lot of attention at the recent Slush and Tech in Asia startup fairs. We often have people interested in what we do visiting our office for a demo. Last week, for example, Helmut Wenisch, Head of Corporate Technology at Siemens K.K., and Alok Kumar Dubey of Siemens K.K. were visiting us to experience our prototype first-hand. Thank you so much for coming by and the inspiring conversation!
Tech in Asia Tokyo 2016 is over but we still get great responses from the fair. It was such an amazing day, thank you once more! Moreover TIA reported on us again, this time in their round-up of interesting booths. It was our new Virtual Reality headset that caught their eye because it made our booth “more attractive and interactive”. Indeed, many visitors were eager to get their hands on it.
If you would like to know more about how we use sensor fusion for VR headset tracking, watch our demo video over here. This is a just a preview, we will give you more updates in the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, read the round-up coverage on the Tech in Asia blog over here.
Last week we set up our booth at the Tech in Asia Tokyo 2016 startup fair. During two days, Japanese and international founders, developers, marketing experts, investors, recruiters and many more roamed the two big halls at Shibuya Gardens Bellesalle. It was a great experience for us to get in touch with potential investors and network with industry experts.
At our booth we highlighted some of our technologies such as our new line of sensors. Besides providing a hands-on experience with our Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs), we showcased our virtual reality headset and wireless controller. These use our sensor fusion technology to combine data from IMUs and a camera-based positioning system to obtain precise, reliable positioning and tracking for a room-scale VR system.
Our booth was pretty popular and throughout the day many curious visitors came to try out the wireless sensor function by themselves. They could hold our new LPMS-B2 Bluetooth sensor in their hands, turn it around and see its tracking in real time on a flatscreen.
See you again next year!
We were featured on the Tech in Asia blog as one of eight startups with fresh approaches, ranging from restaurant recommendations via Instagram to a wearable camera that takes pictures with the blink of an eye.
And that is what they said about us:
“This promising startup develops advanced sensor technology, and is currently working on creating a novel type of AR goggles. Their sensitive 3D orientation sensors can be used in different fields from sports to medicine, and even function in naval environments. LP-Research frequently collaborates with other players in hi-tech solutions, from accurately navigating autonomous drones for the European Space Agency to creating innovative solutions for human-device interaction with Google ATP. Going through their portfolio feels like browsing the future.”
Thank you so much, we are so happy!
Tech in Asia Tokyo 2016 has started today. Please come by and visit us in our booth on Wednesday, September 7. Looking forward!
With Tech in Asia being held this week, it is never too late to let you know that we also attended Slush Asia at Tokyo’s Makuhari Messe in May 2016. Two days of networking, catching up with old friends and meeting new folks to hear about their exciting projects. At our booth we presented our new generation of sensors to many very interested visitors.
Attendants could also get a glimpse of our two new projects currently in the making that involve VR and AR: One is a high-definition hardware and software development kit for Augmented Reality; the other is an a IMU/optical tracking system development kit for both Virtual and Augmented Reality applications. Stay tuned for more!
