CLAREMONT, Calif. (PRWEB) November 08, 2021
Athanos, Inc. will publicly unveil a prototype of its Athanos VIEW (View Immersive Experience Window) peripheral at Augmented World Expo (AWE) USA 2021, ushering in a new extended reality (XR) product category called Modern 3D, which bridges the gap between 2D and VR/AR computing.
Athanos VIEW is a system that couples an ultra-lightweight head-tracking wearable with real-time game engines. It seamlessly integrates into stereoscopic 3D-capable displays such as flat panels and projectors to deliver comfortable, immersive, high-resolution experiences. Interacting with Athanos VIEW feels like staring through a portal into another 3D world.
“I really enjoy immersive 3D experiences on large screens like TVs and in location-based entertainment (LBE) without having to fully disconnect from the real world,” said Peter Giokaris, Athanos’ Founder and CTO. “Athanos is building systems to bring interactive 3D onto any screen, anywhere, and Athanos VIEW is the first step in realizing that vision.”
“The time is right for a 3D revival,” said Marv Su, Athanos co-founder and CEO. “3D from ten years ago did not have access to technologies made possible by innovations in XR and today’s compute power and flat panels. What Athanos is building will blow people’s minds and force them to re-think the future of 3D in today’s XR landscape.”
AWE USA 2021 conference attendees can experience games and entertainment firsthand on Athanos VIEW at Booth 4 in the AWE Playground in Hall D of the Santa Clara Convention Center.
Athanos, Inc. is a startup founded by Peter Giokaris, a veteran game developer, Oculus’ first VR software engineering hire, and a 3D aficionado. Athanos is inventing Modern 3D by applying its expertise in virtual reality, games, computer graphics, and hardware to develop Athanos VIEW. Athanos VIEW is a system that enables comfortable, immersive gaming and entertainment on 3D-capable displays, while allowing developers building for flatscreens and VR to quickly and easily port their projects to the system. Athanos’ initial focus is to serve the gaming, entertainment, and metaverse markets, but Athanos VIEW is equally applicable for enterprise 3D markets. Athanos’ mission is to “live and play in both worlds” by blending interactive 3D with the real world on any screen, anywhere.
