Jacob has been working in mixed and virtual reality for the better part of a decade. It started with webcam-based AR in 2009 and things just escalated from there. These days he can be found working on Occipital’s Bridge headset, supporting indie MR/VR projects and rambling on about the intersection of tech and human perception.

Occipital
Occipital is equal parts science lab and software startup – we develop state-of-the-art mobile computer vision applications.

In 2013, Occipital launched the Structure Sensor, the first 3D sensor for mobile devices. Structure Sensor went on to become one of the highest funded technology projects in Kickstarter history

In 2016 Occipital launched two new products, Canvas: a home scanning application which lets users turn their rooms into scale accurate CAD models, and Bridge: a mobile powered, spatially aware, mixed reality HMD.

Bridge
Bridge lets iPhone owners instantly experience immersive mixed and virtual reality. It’s a premium headset that uses the Structure Sensor to capture a precise 3D representation of the real world that can then be used to power immersive mixed reality capabilities that simply aren’t possible with available headsets.

For example, Bridge can allow virtual content and characters to merge realistically with real-world environments. A virtual character can hide under the kitchen table, or run across a couch. And a virtual ray gun could blow a hole in the living room wall, revealing a portal from the real world to a magic world…or a friend’s house halfway around the world. And Bridge isn’t just for mixed reality – it’s powerful for virtual reality too.
