I have a question that is not listed below

Perfect. Please send it in and we’ll do our best to respond quickly.

I am building a public VR attraction. How can you help me?

A good treadmill for home use costs around $1,000. A treadmill for use in a health club could be ten times more expensive. Why would club owners agree to pay so much more? Because they understand that the home equipment would not withstand the heavy use in a club.

The same is true for VR goggles. Goggles for home use are not suitable for sustained use in arcades and amusement parks.

Durability is one key issue. A goggle in an amusement park is subject to both accidental and intentional abuse. Hygiene is also important. VR experiences can be intense, and parks can be in hot and humid areas. Whether it is sweat, suntan lotion or something else, a guest does not wish to wear a soaked or dirty goggle.

Beyond the customer-facing experience, there are important operational considerations. Attractions make money by providing a unique experience to a large number of visitors. A VR solution must minimize the downtime of the attraction and streamline the process of donning and removing the headset.

Sensics understands these challenges and has developed a unique goggle for public VR. Click here to learn more.

In addition, we can help connect to hundreds of different devices and can contribute in other ways to the success of the attraction. We’ve done it before and we can do it for you.

What do you offer for training and simulation applications?

Our products include several HMDs that are helmet mounted and even products that have been tested for MIL-SPEC-810G specifications. In addition, we offer emulated optical devices such as binoculars, rifle sights and spotter scopes. We can also build new models cost-effectively.

can I use OSVR to connect new hardware to existing content?

Yes. OSVR (osvr.github.io) provides, among other things, an abstraction layer for devices such as head-mounted displays, motion trackers, gesture cameras, motion platforms, eye trackers and more. What this means is that applications that use OSVR can work on devices from many different vendors. Thus, by creating an OSVR plugin, we can connect your device to many pre-existing applications. We can also help you obtain instant access to high-quality game engine plugins for most popular engines.

Can you help me create a VR goggle for a custom application?

Absolutely. We have created application-specific goggles for many industries including medical, defense, consumer and more. We can do this for you as well.

Sensics is uniquely positioned to help you:

  • We have invaluable experience and expertise, as we have been delivering VR solutions for over a decade. Our expertise covers pretty much all aspects of VR: system engineering, optics, electronics, software, ergonomics, mechanical design, sensors and more.
  • As co-founders of OSVR, we have access to manufacturing infrastructure, deep relationships with partners and unmatched expertise in the inner workings of OSVR. We can put these assets to work for you.
  • We have lots of technology building blocks that can help us deliver faster and with lower cost.

Do you sell or license VR components such as optics or motion trackers?

Yes. We have a catalog of optical designs and can help you by designing and producing the eyepiece you need. Our OSVR Store also carries lenses, motion trackers, display drivers and a host of other components.

Need help? Just contact us and we’ll be glad to help.

Which VR headset is best for me?

It depends on what is important to you. Some applications call for the widest field of view possible. Others need super-high pixel density so that you can spot small objects at a distance or see fine details. Others have stingy computing power requirements or need to be super portable. Some focus on price. Others focus on accessories.

We could go on to talk about all the options, but just contact us and we’ll help you choose the best one.

What is the relation between Sensics and Razer?

Sensics and Razer are two independent companies. Sensics focuses on VR hardware for unique applications and on open-source VR. Razer focuses on products for gamers.

Sensics and Razer co-founded the OSVR initiative. Sensics’ role was to design and build the OSVR software platform and to design key parts of the OSVR hardware (e.g. optics, FPGA code). Razer also participated in the design of various hardware parts and led the manufacturing of the OSVR HDK.

Sensics helps customers leverage OSVR by including OSVR hardware and software components in VR solutions for applications like “out of home VR”. Sensics also provides VR design and development services.

How do consumer VR technologies impact my application?

The growing popularity of consumer headsets has led to better components available at a lower cost. It also led to richer software environments (such as OSVR) and more choice for customers. In short, this is good news.

Sensics has the experience and expertise to incorporate consumer-grade components into customized applications that need to meet unique requirements.

Let us show you how you can leverage consumer-grade components for your application.
