SoftKinetic Helps Turn Virtual Reality Into A Social Experience

Company First to Allow Multiple Players to Interact Directly in Virtual Environment

SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 8, 2015 — (PRNewswire) —  Augmented World Expo -- SoftKinetic®, the world's leading provider of 3D vision and gesture recognition solutions, today announced it is expanding the virtual reality (VR) experience into a social, multi-player environment, using its unique 3D vision technologies. SoftKinetic's sophisticated DepthSense® camera and Close Interaction Library (CILib™) middleware, in conjunction with an AR/VR headset, allow multiple players from anywhere in the world to see each other's hands in a virtual environment and interact through game play. SoftKinetic will demonstrate this experience for the first time at Augmented World Expo in Santa Clara, California, June 8-10, 2015, booth #22.

SoftKinetic's CILib, adapted specifically for the unique needs of the AR/VR environment, offers the most natural and robust interaction available on the market today. By placing multiple users' actual hands in the environment, CILib's superior tracking allows both gesture recognition and physical interaction.

"Virtual reality is an incredibly hot topic right now, but in order to create mass appeal it needs that social element," said Michel Tombroff, CEO of SoftKinetic. "SoftKinetic's vendor-neutral technology provides powerful capabilities for true social interaction in an alternate reality.  While it may start in gaming, the possibilities for using this technology in a virtual setting are limitless, and will be the catalyst to seeing widespread adoption of VR/AR technologies."

SoftKinetic has included CILib in its ReachVR™ toolkit, available through the company's website at
