PrimeSense hosts OpenNI partners at official Google I/O After Hours party
TEL AVIV and SAN FRANCISCO (May 15, 2013 at 7:05 p.m. Pacific Time) – PrimeSense™ (http://www.primesense.com/), the leader in Natural Interaction and 3D sensing, is showcasing the latest developments in mobile applications that take advantage of PrimeSense 3D depth sensing technology using Nexus 10 devices and Android’s operating system at the official Google I/O developer conference After Hours party, taking place now, May 15 at the Moscone West Convention Center in San Francisco.
PrimeSense is hosting partners from OpenNI, the largest 3D sensing development community, to demonstrate 3D sensing mobile applications throughout the evening.
The demonstrations showcase innovative developments in mobile 3D sensing featuring the Capri sensor, the world’s smallest 3D sensor, tiny enough to be embedded in many consumer electronic devices. PrimeSense and its partners are demonstrating applications on the Nexus 10 from Google such as: augmented reality games by ActiveMe, 3D scanning, “beaming” of objects by Occipital and an interior design application that allows the user to use augmented reality for interior design and decoration, by NCONNEX.
“We see Capri adding depth sensing and Natural Interaction to mobile devices and tablets, revolutionizing the user experience and usability in ways that no one could imagine until now. We are thrilled to introduce the guests to these applications at the Google I/O After Hours party,” said Tal Dagan, VP Marketing, PrimeSense. “Capri and Nexus 10 are the perfect companions to open up a world of 3D sensing of mobile applications.”
