Extreme Reality, Which Gives Any Webcam Kinect-Like Powers, Opens Its Developer SDK

Screen Shot 2013-09-30 at 12.19.44 PM

Extreme Reality, an Israeli startup backed by SV Angel, has been at work for eight years on building motion capture technology.

Now they’re opening up the kimono with a platform that can turn any basic webcam or laptop cam into something like a Kinect, with the power to capture a three-dimensional range of movement.

“We’re aiming to give people a console-like experience without the user having to buy additional hardware,” said Asaf Barzilay, who is Extreme Realty’s vice president of products and research and development.

They’ve launched a new developer zone and an SDK for developers to play and test out Extreme Reality’s motion control software. They say it will let developers easily add Kinect-like experiences to web-based games. Without asking consumers to buy hardware, they believe the market for motion-centric games could be orders of magnitude larger.

Their platform lets based laptop and mobile cams capture motion and gestures that are up to 5 meters or 17 feet away from the camera.

The Herzelia, Israel-based company says that other game makers like SEGA have already incorporated their SDK into games like GO DANCE for iOS. Then there are more indie titles like Side-Kick’s Top Smash Tennis for Windows 8, Indie Hero’s BeatBoxer+TM for Windows 7 and VTree Entertainment’s Pro Riders Snowboard for Windows 7 and 8.

The SDK is free at first, but then there’s a revenue sharing arrangement that the company works out on a case-by-case basis. The SDK supports Unity, C++ and C# and operating systems like iOS and Windows 7. But no Android yet.

The company has raised about $ 19 million in venture funding from SV Angel, Marker LLC, Texas Instruments and Crescent Point Lantern.

Extreme Reality was actually founded eight years ago, but didn’t really start putting out consumer or developer-oriented products into the market until about three years ago. During that time, they picked up about 14 patents.

“We were in a laboratory mode,” Barzilay says.

Intel joins Alliance for Wireless Power’s Board of Directors

DNP Intel joins Alliance for Wireless Power

The Alliance for Wireless Power (A4WP), a consortium working to establish a new wireless charging standard, hasn’t been around for terribly long — Samsung and Qualcomm joined forces to create the organization just over a year ago — but it’s planning to make waves as quickly as possible. One of the most effective ways to do exactly that, then, would be to persuade large players in the mobile industry to join along, and Intel certainly meets that qualification. The company announced this afternoon that it has officially joined the A4WP’s Board of Directors. This move doesn’t guarantee that we’ll be soon seeing Intel-powered devices with built-in wireless charging capabilities, but it’s at least a solid indication that the folks in Santa Clara are mindful of (and intrigued by) the potential that near-field magnetic resonance tech holds.

Chuck Norris Shaves Beard, Loses All Mystical Powers

chuck-norris-no-beard.jpg

This is a recent shot of Chuck Norris and his freshly shaven beard and mustache. He looks like a dad. Definitely not the kind of guy you’d imagine roundhouse kicking the devil’s pecker off then singing Metallica’s ‘No Remorse’ into it like a karaoke mic. *telephone ringing* Hello? Uh-huh. Okay, I’ll tell him. Chuck? That was Jackie O, she said she wants her sunglasses back. I mean, I think you look great in them and all, but you can’t go around stealing women’s glasses.

Thanks to Michael, who once beat Chuck in paper-rock-scissors three times in a row.

This is the end, Big N supporters. Nintendo Power‘s last issue is upon us and in a shock idea of the hat, the journal’s personnel has actually determined to pay tribute to the famed cover that began it all. Framed in a similar way to the inaugural concern from 1988, this last dance with all things officially Nintendo apes the Super Mario Bros. 2 clay-styled setup for a cover tale on New Super Mario Bros. U. Try to find it to hit newsstands one last time on December 11th, bringing the treasured decades-old publication full circle.
