Donald Trump, insulation is a seamless wall with airpockets. Ceilings can be printed using a re-enforcing scaffold for support. Try googling info..

Absolutely no information about the 4.2 release - was it ever released in September. There is about as much information on trueSKY as there is in any of the so called products that use it. For me this lack of transparency is killing there business and points to fundamental issues with the technology. Google trueSKY in YouTube and you'll hardly get any information at all. For such a ground breaking technology this is very suspicious. Do they not have a marketing team - do they even care? Sounds like a very small company which wishes to remain small and doesn't understand what they can become because with the technology they have they should be targeting a bigger profile, revenue streams and audiance than they have and the lack of foresight here with the Simul management is quite frankly very disapointing. Another 10 years could easily disapear for these guys and they will simply remain a small fish. Very sad.

GDC: A New AR Engine Targets Over 2 Billion Android Smartphones
5 March, 2018

An AR/VR immersion pioneer uSens is going to GDC this month to show off uSensAR, an AR smartphone engine that is said to do what Google’s ARCore can’t. You will have a chance to meet with uSens at booth #1528 at the show to try it out yourself!

A quick comparison:

  • uSensAR performs well on entry-level and premium-level smartphones.
    • ARCore requires premium chipsets, such as the latest Qualcomm Snapdragon versions.
  • uSensAR targets over 2 billion Android smartphones worldwide that lack AR functionality; that’s over 95% of the Android market. 
  • uSens has strong tie-ins with the mainstream Chinese market, with offices in Beijing and Hangzhou in addition to its Silicon Valley US HQ.


uSens will also be offering at GDC demos of:

  • Hand-tracking: Fingo version 1.2 – recently version-upgraded and featuring 26DOF. Here is a video comparison of the tool in action vs. Leap Motion:

  • Head-tracking: Illuminate, a Unity-built illustration app that showcases uSens’s industry-best 6DOF SLAM head-tracking:
