There's a new wristband in town: A camera-free gesture recognition controller for VR/AR is set to make an appearance at CES 2018, which runs Jan. 9-12 in Las Vegas.

Developed by Vancouver-based startup BioInteractive Technologies Inc., the TENZR looks something like a Fitbit. It's designed to provide a more immersive experience by ditching the need for bulky, button-based controllers.

Features include:

  • Ability to detect six hand gestures without need for calibration
  • Plug-and-play solution, with no training required
  • Complements voice-enabled smart glasses

Developers and early adopters interested in building and interfacing with Bluetooth-capable systems are invited to get a first-hand look at the device, with demos set for two CES 2018 locations: Eureka Park, Sands, Hall G - 50915 and the Cypress Booth — MP25365.
