The software pairs the Hydra with an intuitive two-hand interface design where you reach out and manipulate objects in a highly natural way (http://youtu.be/VvPb7Lo6S-I). Even more exciting is out-of-the-box support for the Oculus Rift virtual reality headset (http://www.oculusvr.com/) which, when combined with MakeVR, makes it feels as though you are really grabbing objects with your own hands thanks to the first person perspective and the Hydra's 1:1 tracking. Sixense says that the Hydra can detect positional movements of as little as 1mm and rotational movements down to 1 degree. The company intends to launch a Kickstarter this month (http://www.roadtovr.com/2013/04/03/gdc-2013-sixense-makevr-virtual-reality-cad-kickstarter-4495) to fund some exciting features for the software like multiplayer, physics, animation, and more.
