大家好 and welcome to the 4th episode of this blog serie about our preparation for the WTT exhibition! (If you miss older episodes, you can begin from here).

This week we’ve another great announcement for you all: our Kinect-based virtual reality solution will be showcased at a private tech event at the beginning of November.

Hi everyone! Today I have great news for you all: all work scheduled for the past week by me and Gianni has been completed!

Gianni has made a great work: now all the Kinect system is able to auto-configure itself in every situation: you can add a Kinect sensor, remove it, put on fire all the system… and after some seconds, voilà! It can work again without the user pressing even a single key. Very cool, isn’t it? Besides that, all communications have been optimized, so the frame rate and bandwith are almost optimal, now.

Hi everyone! How has it been your weekend? I hope well…I’ve relaxed a bit, after a week of work.

In the past week, in preparation for WTT, we’ve bought some fancy hardware for the demo. First of all, we bought an additional Microsoft Kinect needed for our tracking solution. Then, we bought some fantastic covers for our Oculus Rift and Gear VR from Bangkok (! But… what is a cover for the Oculus Rift?

Hi to all! As promised, I’ll update you about our work in preparation for the WTT here in Turin.

First of all, we bought some fantastic Kinect stands! As a colleague of ours says: "they’re like selfie sticks, but for Kinect" :-) You can see one of them in the photo in this post! Stands are very useful to put Kinect sensors at a certain height above the floor, in an elegant way. Until now, we used card boxes: they are great for lab experiments, but very unelegant and unreliable for a public place use.

Hello again from Turin, Italy!

Holidays have lasted too short (as always)… I had a lot of fun with my friends in southern Italy, and you? What about your Holidays? I’m just curious… let me know something in the comment section! :-)

We’re back at work! And we’ve a great announcement for you all! We'll partecipate to the WTT here in Turin! If you are wondering what the WTT is: it is the first exhibition in Italy (and maybe in Europe) dedicated completely to wearable technologies… cool, isn’t it?

Summer has come and from tomorrow on, we’ll take some spare days to have a deserved rest. We’ll get back to work by the end of September, to follow our dreams. We’re on the right track, more determined than ever.

There have been important developments we’d like to talk to you about… but we’ll do that after the holidays break. In the meantime, enjoy the sun and the sea J

Hearty greetings of Happy Holidays to all our followers

Some months ago, we left you with "We will try to keep this blog up to date by writing periodically"… but I have to admit we didn’t succeeded a lot in it… our last post is dated February the 2nd… ops  :-)

If in all this time you have wondered if we abandoned our project, the answer is NO. On the contrary, it is due to the passion we are employing in the development of our vision, that it is very difficult to find the time to share our results with the rest of the world. We are determined to go through with it.

We owe you an update about our work… so here you are a fantastic bullet point that explains all.

Since the first time we tried the Oculus Rift, about 6 months ago, we felt a big limit in its use: being seated in front of the PC and moving around with keyboard and mouse (or using a gamepad) instantaneously made us losing every immersive effect (and, above all, it caused nausea and motion sickness). Browsing on the Internet, we found some interesting solutions to this problem, but all were early prototypes and required dedicated hardware with ad-hoc wearable sensors. Being expert with Microsoft Kinect applications, we wondered if it was possible to develop an alternative solution, which required nothing but our body. It was.

Welcome everybody! With a little emotion due to the start of a new adventure, we present ourselves: we are Gianni and Tony, two Italian guys that created the ImmotionAR team (sometimes shortened in iAR).

Our dream is to create virtual reality immersive experiences that are able to make our users feel any kind of exciting and amazing sensations. We want to achieve this using the latest cutting-edge technologies:
