Virtual Reality Partnership Will Change The Way You Define “Virtual”
Image Metrics and Sine Wave Entertainment are pleased to annouce a partnership with plans to create the most immersive social experiences in the virtual reality industry. Using Oculus’ virtual-reality equipment and Image Metrics’ proprietary technology, the companies will integrate true-to-life facial animation into Sine Wave Entertainment’s virtual reality worlds.
Sine Wave Entertainment CEO Adam Frisby remarks, “the way I envision users using this technology ultimately is going to be where we can make it a de facto system for highly immersive social environments. This gets us another notch closer to ‘being as good as there’ when talking to someone online – it has potential for both social & commercial uses.”
The initial release to the virtual reality worlds is set for late August to over 2 million existing users. The companies anticipate that the user base will grow exponentially as they launch beyond desktop platforms and onto mobile platforms.
