Bridge Engine 1.0 is now available to all Learn more
This is what we've always dreamed of. This is the bridge between fantasy and reality. Where virtual characters can enter our world and interact with our environment as if they were really there. Or where we can enter and immerse ourselves in a virtual world, while still staying comfortably aware of ours.
With Bridge, you choose your reality. From immersive virtual reality experiences with room-scale, inside-out 6-DoF positional tracking to stunning mixed reality experiences, an array of experiences are now possible.
Inside-out positional tracking lets you roam freely through any virtual environment, while obstacle avoidance helps you avoid objects or walls around you. Developers can quickly port existing experiences to Bridge in minutes with a simple Unity plugin.
With Bridge, all the compute you need is on the iPhone you already own. Bridge Engine efficiently synthesizes data from the Structure Sensor's depth sensing system and the iPhone's color camera and IMU to deliver breathtaking mixed reality experiences.
Bridge relies on precise calibration between the iPhone's color camera and Structure Sensor to create mind bending mixed reality. An anodized, machined aluminum alignment system locks these two components together.
Immersive mixed reality requires a wide view of the world. So we designed a custom glass lens that doubles the iPhone's field of view to 120˚. Bridge Engine fuses this with the depth data from Structure Sensor for robust tracking and to create a stereo view.
Changing phones? Bridge's phone enclosure can be easily replaced to fit your new one. A magnetic latch and open faceplate makes it easy to remove your phone when you're not using Bridge.
A twist in one direction comfortably secures Bridge, while a twist in the other quickly releases it. A built-in counterweight removes weight from the face for ultimate comfort.
Rigid side straps couple with a counterweight backpad to remove weight from the face for exceptional user comfort.
Bridge also includes a dedicated controller with 3-DoF rotational tracking to manipulate objects with high precision. With five buttons and an onboard IMU it makes interaction smooth and natural.
Coupled with Structure Sensor's ability to capture dense 3D meshes of scenes, Bridge Engine makes it simple to author and deploy mind-bending mixed reality experiences to the mobile device you already own.
Craft groundbreaking mixed reality experiences on today's mobile devices using Bridge Engine. Integrated with SceneKit, Bridge Engine includes high-level APIs that make getting started simpler than ever.
Bridge ships with a Unity plugin that makes adding inside-out 6-DoF positional tracking to your existing virtual or mixed reality Unity project as simple as dropping in a new camera prefab.
Build software that breaks the barrier between your phone and the physical world around you. Bridge Engine gives you all the tools you need to create the future of mixed reality now.
