This last year we have really been focused on extending ourselves further into virtual reality because we understand the great need there is for this technology not just for entertainment but as a business solution as well.

Not long after announcing their latest virtual reality-related product, the motion-tracking Hi5 VR Glove, Noitom makes its return to the world’s premiere virtual reality gathering, the Silicon Valley Virtual Reality Conference & Expo taking place at the San Jose Convention Center from March 29-31.

At its core, Noitom is a motion capture technology company, dedicating much of its research to all aspects of motion capture and creating affordable and accessible tools for VFX, animation and gaming such as its popular Perception Neuron system. The company however, has continued to steadily advance into the virtual reality spectrum where it is now focused on making immersion into VR a smoother and even more dynamic experience.

As Noitom prepares to be a part of SVVR for the third year in a row, the industry professionals from around the world who will be in attendance have the opportunity to experience the company's latest virtual reality products, both of which promise to deliver better, more engaging ways to enjoy virtual reality.

For SVVR 2017, Noitom will once again showcase their multi-user mixed reality B2B platform Project Alice. They will also be presenting to a whole new audience, their consumer Hi5 VR Glove which made its unofficial debut earlier this year at CES in Las Vegas. Both Project Alice and Hi5 VR Glove are poised to generate excitement around the Noitom booth at SVVR where they will be offering daily live demos throughout the course of the convention.

“This last year we have really been focused on extending ourselves further into virtual reality because we understand the great need there is for this technology not just for entertainment but as a business solution as well,” says Tristan Dai, CTO and Co-founder of Noitom. “There are just so many possibilities with VR. Gaming and entertainment are only the beginning. What we have discovered is that virtual reality can really help to expand and strengthen business goals by providing a tool that offers a complete simulation and virtual training solution that can be used in the automotive and theme park and real-estate industries as well as many others.”

Dr. Dai, who is also the developer of Project Alice and Hi5 VR Glove will host a speaking session on the first day of the conference where he will discuss Noitom’s year-long journey into VR as well as give some insight as to where the company is headed in the future.

Noitom’s SVVR booth will actually be two separate spaces, each providing a set of live demo sessions that will go on throughout the day. The demo sessions fall into several categories including games, education and advertising.The demos will include a multi-player, multi-scene demo featuring the Hi5 VR Glove where players can immerse both hands into the VR environment while interacting with objects.
