PhotonLens, an augmented reality smart glass manufacturer, has partnered with Shadow Creator, an augmented reality hardware provider, to co-develop smart glass with Dual 6 DoF controllers.
The partnership was announced at the 2020 World Conference on the virtual reality industry. PhotonLens will act as the co-developer and global distributor of Photons, which are smart glass and active gaming systems.
“Through our ODM partnership, Photons will unlock new possibilities for consumer-ready AR gaming. With dual 6 DoF controllers, Photons are the only device that offers full 6 DoF head-to-hand tracking without external sensors. Through an innovative hidden tracking light ring and a magnetic trigger button design, Photons’ 6 DoF controllers are so light and compact that users can easily put them in their pockets and carry them around. Meanwhile, the SLAM algorithms we use offer impeccably accurate positioning, down to the centimeter, meaning that users can seamlessly play games indoors or outdoors. If you want to see what the future of AR is going to look like in the coming years, look at what Shadow Creator and PhotonLens are doing now.” – Patrick Liu, PhotonLens CEO
According to the company, Photons will be open for pre-orders on Kickstarter by December 2020.
