POL


Mobile VR LIKE Never BEFORE

“We deliver the most efficient and accessible positional-tracking solution in the world”

POLARIANT invented the world's first precise 6-axis tracking technology using the light polarization.

With this technology, we are working on 3D motion controller system for mobile VR. 


POL Xsuite

POL is the brand of POLARIANT's  motion tracking solution for VR, and POL Xsuite enables head-position tracking as well as local multiplay on any mobile VR devices.

Compared to other motion controller systems in the market, Pol works with the polarized light. With this feature, it has 3 advantages as below.


Advantages #1

wireless & compact

set up effortlessly on a tabletop, and used by multiple people simultaneously in a small room

Advantage #2

AFFORDABLE

Integrated onto a VR headset or controller with 3X cheaper component cost than existing solutions

Advantage #3

EFFICIENT PROCESS

Requires thousands times lower computing resource allowing it to work with smartphones lacking high performance CPUs

HOW
The Techonology
WORKS WITH
THE Light
POLARIZATION

According to the law of Malus, the intensity of the light transmitted corresponds to its angle, when linearly polarized light passes through a polarizer. 

 

So, we started with the question. 'What if with the light sensor?' Yes, we could calculate the angle from detected intensity of polarized light. 

Furthermore, we combined light sensors and formed a module. Then boom! We could calculate the 3D vector from the light source to the sensor.


HOW
Pol
works with
Mobile VR
devices

  1. Pol detects polarized light from the target light source as fast as 1,000 times per a second and calculate the data.
     
  2. Pol sends just a few bytes of result data to paired mobile VR device through Bluetooth.  
     
  3. Pol's Android Plugin receives the data and applies it to a target object in the VR scene as a 3D vector of position, and a quaternion of orientation.
