Sixense STEM to support Samsung Gear VR

Posted October 29, 2014 by Edmund in News

Amir Rubin, CEO of Sixense, announced at SFVR today that the company has been working closely with Samsung on supporting the Samsung Gear VR.

Rubin quoted a latency of 7.5ms and notes that the STEM trackers can be used to provide wireless positional tracking to the Gear VR and that all current STEM demos work on the device.

This relationship could significantly enhance the value proposition of both Gear VR and the STEM system itself – giving it a real advantage in the hand-tracking ecosystem and encouraging more developers to adopt the STEM SDK into their experiences.
