Sixense's new Kickstarter stretch goal: Android and iOS support

One technology that has me excited along with the Oculus Rift is Sixense Entertainment's STEM System, which is currently on Kickstarter. Sixense had an original goal of $250,000 but they are now at $531,448 at the time of writing.

 

 

The developer has added a new stretch goal to its Kickstarter campaign, which would see them add STEM support for both Android and iOS devices if they reach $700,000. There's another 17 days for this to happen, so we should see them hit this goal quite easily. The Kickstarter campaign reads: "An updated Sixense software development kit will support Android 3.2 or higher and iOS 6 and higher, allowing STEM System developers to bring Sixense motion tracking to a huge installed base of mobile devices."

It also adds: "Our video above shows a virtual camera application for which we've heard a lot of requests. The STEM System running on Android and iOS will enable applications like the virtual camera, or even the ability to turn a mobile device into a VR head-mounted display."
