Embedded software found in VicoVR is highly optimized and requires moderate ARM chipset for processing. This means that VicoVR is less expensive and consumes 10 times less energy than solutions based on Kinect+Windows PC.
3DiVi Inc. was started five years ago with the idea to bring 3D gesture recognition technology to emerging computer platforms. By assembling the brilliant team of computer vision engineers, we created a state of the art 3D body tracking software. Our developments happened just in time for the emergence of the Mobile VR market.
Our team found 3D Full Body Tracking was capable of solving key problems in Mobile VR. We identified the lack of positional tracking of Mobile headset and the lack of body interactivity to be two of the biggest issues. Our team believed the sensor should work wirelessly- without a PC- meaning the sensor should have its own embedded processing capability. This belief is how VicoVR was born.
During the last year we’ve evolved from a duct-tape prototype to a validated prototype that’s ready for mass production. The VicoVR prototype has already been assembled in small quantities and shipped to Android VR developers. More than ten Android VR apps are ready for VicoVR and we’ve had successful demos at VRLA2016, CES2016, and MWC2015. VicoVR is literally a game changing peripheral device with a total addressable market (TAM) of over two billion Android and iOS devices!
Our team deeply believes this is the beginning of a great chapter in full body presence within the Mobile VR world. To grow in sync with the Mobile VR industry, we look forward to working endlessly to evolve the capabilities of VicoVR via software updates.
VicoVR’s breakthrough in accuracy, stability, and latency of body tracking has resulted in a virtual reality gaming system unlike any other. With VicoVR, virtual truly becomes reality. We cannot wait to share this gaming reality with our backers.
3DiVi Inc. is headquatered in San Francisco and has a R&D office in Russia.
Q: What is VicoVR?
A: VicoVR sensor is a Bluetooth peripheral that brings wireless Kinect-like motion tracking capability to Android and iOS ecosystems – without a PC, wires, or wearable sensors! When wirelessly paired with Mobile VR headsets such as Samsung GearVR or Google Cardboard, VicoVR enables HMD-positional-tracking and full-body-tracking capabilities. When wirelessly paired with the new generation of gaming platforms such as AndroidTV, AppleTV, or an Android game console, VicoVR enhances mobile gaming with familiar Kinect-like body tracking.
Q: Is VicoVR Sensor similar to Microsoft Kinect?
A: Yes and no. VicoVR sensor is similar to Kinect as it uses similar bundle of depth sensing technology and the body tracking SDK (middleware). The key difference is VicoVR Sensor’s embedded processing capability. Unlike Kinect SDK, which requires xBox or Windows PC for middleware processing, our proprietary middleware is executed inside sensor on embedded processing unit. Processing results such as real time user skeletal tracking data and gestures are sent then by Bluetooth to any compatible host device.
By offloading heavy image processing tasks from the host CPU, VicoVR Sensor makes full featured 3D motion control available on any Bluetooth enabled device. You can think of VicoVR Sensor as a new type of Bluetooth peripheral, which is especially perfect for emerging Mobile VR applications requiring full body tracking and gesture control.

Q: I am an Android VR Developer, can I get VicoVR Devkit now?
Q: Do you provide SDK?
Q: Is PC required?
Q: Can it be paired with iOS devices?
Q: Can VicoVR be used in non- VR applications?
Q:How does VicoVR use the RGB camera?
Q: If my game/app is higher than 30 FPS will it delay, operate too quickly, and/or cause motion sickness?
Q: Can I play popular VR games currently on the market using my VicoVR gaming system?
A: Firstly, we work with Mobile HMDs only. Secondly, developers need to use our free SDK to add body control and to make the game VicoVR-compatible. Games can be:
1. New and developed only for VicoVR
2. Already existing Android games
Q: What controllers are compatible with VicoVR?
A: Developers are free to use any extra controller of their choice with VicoVR SDK.
Q: Does Vico VR detect finger movement?
A: We do not track individual fingers.
Q: Does Vico VR support Voice Recognition?
A: No, this feature is not supported and we have no plans for enabling it in the future. We think that your Mobile HMD is better suited to handle any voice recognition tasks.
Q: Does VicoVR have physics implementation for hands and feet?
A: While we have samples of body models as part of SDK, all Android VR developers are free to use any other models they like.
Q: Does VicoVR track both position and orientation of HMD?
A: No, VicoVR just tracks position of Mobile HMD by approximating body tracking data. Orientation of HMD is tracked by Mobile HMD itself with no influence from VicoVR.
Q: Does VicoVR work well with bracelets, watches, sleeves, etc?
A: VicoVR uses high quality IR based depth sensing module for tracking body. But, as usual in computer vision, we cannot guarantee fault free performance under any circumstances, especially with materials non reflecting IR (such as some types of fabric, watches, bracelets, etc).
Q: Does VicoVR work outdoors?
A: Current version of VicoVR uses IR based depth sensing module and it means VicoVR cannot work outdoor or indoor with a direct sunlight.
Q: What data is sent from VicoVR to the Mobile Headset?
A: VicoVR processes depth input and wirellessly outputs to Android or iOS headset:
- User pixel masks, unlimited @ 30 fps
- 3D coordinates of upto 19 skeletal joints for user, two users max @ 30 fps
- 3D Point Cloud @ 30 fps, upto 160*120
- Hand pointers (3D), Gestures (fist open/closed, swipes).
All processing is done inside sensor, completely off-loading CPU of Android/iOS Headset!
Q: I know that depth map based tracking cannot provide submillimeter accuracy of tracking – how accurate is your HMD’s positional tracking?
A: Yes, 3D position tracking of HMD is based on just one head joint and cannot provide a comfortable experience because of some jitter. However, by having data of all other body joints apart from head, and taking into consideration body kinematics, there is an opportunity to significantly reduce jitter in headset location. We’re constantly working to improve perceived accuracy of headset tracking, and those improvements will be available via firmware updates, without the need to replace sensor hardware.
Q: What is the Warranty?
A: We provide a one (1) year limited warranty. We guarantee you receive your VicoVR Sensor free of manufacturing defects.
