The Augmented World Expo (AWE), featuring some of the world’s hottest augmented reality and virtual reality technology, returns to the Santa Clara Convention Center May 31 – June 2. We’re excited that the uSens team will be in booth #400 so please stop by to meet the team, experience a demo, and discuss anything and everything AR and VR related.

At AWE, the winners of the annual Auggie Awards will be announced, highlighting the best-of-the-best in AR and VR. We’re thrilled that our Fingo 3D stereo vision hand tracking technology is nominated in the Best Developer Tool category. With its mixture of revolutionary software and hardware, Fingo offers low latency, 26DOF and the tracking of 22 finger joints. The combination of these features allows users to interact with digital objects in AR and VR the same way they would in the real world. Simply by attaching a Fingo module to the front of a HMD device holder, you can experience your favorite apps controller-free. Fingo supports mobile ARVR platforms including Samsung Gear VR™, Google Daydream™, and Google Cardboard™, in addition to any Android OS-powered glasses for augmented reality. Fingo also supports PC-tethered virtual reality systems such as Oculus Rift™ and HTC Vive™.

Public voting on the Auggies is now open. Please vote for uSens Fingo by May 22 to help us reach the semifinals! (Quick tip: Try voting though a desktop computer as well as your mobile device.)

Additionally, uSens co-founder and CTO Dr. Yue Fei will be speaking at 4:15 p.m. on June 2 to share his insights on “4 Keys to Augmented Reality’s Future.” Dr. Fei will break down the challenges to AR adoption and how to overcome them. With all the current hype around the promise and potential of AR, you won’t want to miss this featured presentation.

Whether you’re an executive, designer, developer, analyst, investor, or reporter, AWE is a fantastic opportunity to discover all the latest news and trends in our industry. Experience it with us and share what’s top-of-mind for you in the world of AR.
