Amir Rubin, Co-Founder and CEO of Sixense, is an entrepreneur with over 20 years of experience building companies and developing products in the fields of simulation, video games, virtual reality and motion tracking. Sixense’s motion tracking technology and software platform enables intuitive interaction with immersive media, including virtual reality, for both mobile and desktop systems. Sixense is shaped around Amir’s two fundamental tenets for virtual reality: (1) to deliver the best user experience, the technology should be transparent to the user, and (2) a platform’s success depends on its ability to enable application developers.
Co-Founder & CEO @ Founded in 2007, Sixense Entertainment, Inc. is a privately held company of developers, engineers, experts and enthusiasts in the virtual reality (VR), 3D modeling and entertainment, industries that share a passion for creating products that revolutionize the way we experience VR content.
Sixense develops technology and software to deliver full-body “presence” in virtual reality for all head-mounted displays (both mobile and desktop). Sixense’s VR platform enables intuitive interaction with the virtual world, ensuring that the user always feels fully present in the experience, with the ability to move and use the hands naturally. At CES 2015, Sixense won awards for Best VR experience from The Verge and Tom’s Hardware. Be sure to see this video from The Verge: https://youtu.be/bSObZQhZ8Gs
Sixense views virtual reality as a platform to enhance all aspects of life, from entertainment to training and education to health to commerce. Sixense’s new vRetail™ platform represents a merging of entertainment with shopping to bring the best aspects of brick and mortar to e-commerce through VR. Using toys as an example, a consumer can enter a branded store to engage in a fully immersive and interactive lightsaber training session. This effectively reinvents retail by allowing him/her to experience products in a way that is not possible through any other medium and can segue into a retail shopping experience in which the consumer is in the mood to buy.
vRetail will improve retail metrics (e.g., by driving customer acquisition and retention and by reducing returns). The vRetail platform includes developer tools (hardware and software) to allow retailers to efficiently develop and deliver both VR storefronts and VR applications and content. vRetail is also social, meaning that you can shop with friends, colleagues or family in any store across the world. From 2007 to Present (8 years)
