Pebbles Interfaces is among the foremost computer vision teams that focuses on depth sensing technology. They’ve spent the last five years developing technology that uses custom optics, sensor systems, and algorithms to detect and track hand movement. The goal is to revolutionize the way people interact and communicate in virtual reality.
Now, Pebbles Interfaces is joining the hardware engineering and computer vision teams at Oculus to bring users a more advanced virtual reality experience. CTO of Pebbles Interfaces, Nadav Grossinger, says of the partnership:
“At Pebbles Interfaces, we’ve been focused on pushing the limits of digital sensing technology to accelerate the future of human-computer interaction. Through micro-optics and computer vision, we hope to improve the information that can be extracted from optical sensors, which will help take virtual reality to the next level. We’ve always believed visual computing will be the next major platform in our lifetime, and we’re excited to join the Oculus team to achieve that vision for the future.”
