At CES 2017, in Las Vegas, virtual reality was huge.
But with their new creation, the “eyeQ”, Mary and Art Shulenberger have taken innovation a step further–to what they’ve christened “immersive reality”.
Onsite at the CES Launchfest party, Mary and Art were promoting the “eyeQ”. This is a headset device, designed to take the “missing the shot” part out of capturing photos or video on your phone.
And Art’s Wookiee costume is due to the fact that the Star Wars movies first inspired him to invent it.
Mary, who is the President and CEO of Burlingame-based Parle Innovation, offered a demonstration. Putting her cell phone into the device, she showed guests how to take high-definition pictures or video in real time. Users are right in the moment, as opposed to missing what’s going on as they fumble with a phone at arm’s length.
Mary talked about the story behind the “eyeQ”, how it works and what to expect.
