Our partner Nolo is introducing the first Homido-compatible mobile positional tracking system and is providing access to SteamVR content

Mobile positional tracking is a technology that was expected for nearly a year, and our partner Nolo has just launched a Kickstarter campaign to finance its ambitious project.

As of May, starting at $89 you can get the following pack consisting of:

  • a detection base
  • a “tracker” to be placed on the headset as well as two supports
  • two 9-axis motion controllers
  • a 4 meter USB cable for SteamVR compatibility
  • a 25cm USB cable to connect the “tracker” and the smartphone
Pack Homido / Nolo

The “all-in-one” package, including a RiftCat license and a Homido V2 headset, is available starting from $149.

Hurry, with the funds for the project already in place, the packs are selling very fast!

What can be done with this solution?

The solution developed by our partners allows a multitude of things today and many more things to come.

Positional tracking for mobile applications

Nolo is compatible with Cardboard/Gear VR and Daydream applications. A simple Unity plug-in is already available, and the Unreal engine plug-in is also provided for easy integration. The iOS world has not been forgotten, and the Nolo and RiftCat teams are actively working on a compatibility that will be in effect at the end of the year.

SteamVR at a lower cost

Thanks to RiftCat’s know-how, Nolo allows you to access the SteamVR catalog with a Homido V2 headset. Once the Homido V2 is equipped with the Nolo system, it becomes possible to use all the VR applications of the famous Valve PC game platform.

Use a SteamVR app with a Homido headset.
