The VR industry is grappling with a serious chicken or egg question: what will open the market, accessible hardware or killer content? uSens, a Silicon Valley-based VR company, thinks that this question is looking in the wrong direction.

“People keep complaining about the lack of content in the VR space. However, the real problem is the HMD (head mounted device). It is not good enough because it doesn’t provide natural HCI for developers to create intuitive content and they cannot think about any good use of HMD,” Dr. Eunseok Park, General Manager at uSens told TechNode. Dr. Park previously served as a researcher and overseas R&D director for five years at Samsung, and will now help uSens expand within Silicon Valley market.

uSens, a provider of hand-and-head tracking technologies for augmented and virtual Reality, announced last week that its technology is now compatible with the Epson’s AR smart glasses. Epson Moverio BT-300 Developer Edition augmented reality smart glasses can add uSens hand-tracking capability through a uSens Fingo module connected via USB cable.
