SoftKinetic, a maker of 3D vision technology, is showcasing its new product for augmented reality mobile platforms during CES.



The SoftKinetic DepthSense 3D Time of Flight (ToF) camera - powered by the Qualcomm Vuforia mobile vision platform - makes it possible for users to interact in 3D with devices in various environments. The live demonstration uses depth sensing technology to create a room-sized environment so testers are able to carry out natural AR experiences, such as arranging items in the virtual room - and tinkering with items using AR.


"Augmented Reality and Robotics are such exciting arenas, with more and more technologies coming to market that support truly sophisticated capabilities for users to engage with the world around them in fun and beneficial ways," said Michel Tombroff, CEO of SoftKinetic, in a press statement. Qualcomm's Vuforia is a perfect example of a platform that allows our DepthSense technology to deliver at its fullest capacity, creating the most robust mobile AR experience available to anyone, anywhere."
