Augmented and virtual reality startup uSens announced yesterday that they have raised a $20 million USD A round led by Fosun Kinzon Capital, followed by returning investor Maison Capital and six new backers including Great Capital.

This new investment will help uSens launch their inside-out 26 DOF (degrees of freedom) hand tracking and 6DOF head tracking tools in 2016, according to a company statement. DOF refers to the freedom of movement in three-dimensional space, where a higher number indicates an increased flexibility in positioning.

Founded in 2013, uSens is principally engaged in designing gesture recognition and hand-and-head tracking technologies and 3D ‘Human Computer Interaction’ system design. The San Jose-based startup first attracted public attention in 2015 as the developer of wireless AR/VR headset Impression Pi, a Kickstarter hit which raised over $30 million USD.
