uSens to showcase latest Fingo demo with Samsung at Samsung Developer Conference 2017

“Latest demo Illuminate, featuring Fingo hand-tracking technology and created using Samsung’s Gear VR Framework, will be featured at GearVRf booth”

uSens, Inc., a pioneer in inside-out tracking solutions for interactive and immersive augmented, virtual and mixed reality experiences, will join Samsung at the Gear VR Framework (GearVRf) booth at the upcoming Samsung Developer Conference. uSens hand-tracking VR demo Illuminate will be on display at the annual event, held October 18-19 at San Francisco’s Moscone Center.

uSens will also be highlighted by Samsung Research America’s Thomas Flynn during his conference breakout session, How to be a Rock Star VR Java Developer, held October 18 at 2 p.m. PT in Session Room #2010. Flynn is responsible for multiple virtual reality projects in his role as Director of Software at Samsung Research America, including GearVRf.

Illuminate, which allows players to light up the night sky by borrowing colors from fireflies, was created using GearVRf and is playable via a Samsung GearVR headset device. The GearVRf project is a lightweight, powerful, open source rendering engine with a Java interface for developing mobile VR games and applications for Gear VR and Google Daydream View.

“The Samsung GearVR framework allows for easy access to Android APIs and includes the OpenGL features needed for rapid Android deployment,” said Shengying Liu, Software Engineer at uSens and creator of Illuminate. “For developers who are familiar with Open GL features, and are looking to develop fantastic mobile VR content, it’s seamless to adapt to GearVRf. We’re excited to participate with Samsung at SDC 2017 and share our experiences with using the framework in creating Illuminate.”

The 2017 Samsung Developer Conference brings together thousands of developers, technologists, business leaders, innovators, designers, and content creators to network and learn about the next wave of intelligent technology. To register for this year’s event, visit
