Bringing Hand Tracking and Interactions into AR: SpectreXR partners with Crunchfish
Crunchfish and SpectreXR have joined forces to provide a complete solution for the AR/VR market. The incorporation of Crunchfish's XR Skeleton into SpectreXR's OctoXR product enables users to interact with virtual objects in a realistic manner by utilizing hand-tracking technology and advanced software developed by both parties. This collaboration reduces the time and complexity involved in developing interactive AR software systems and apps, and it marks an important step forward in incorporating hand interactions into AR technology.
While OctoXR allows users to add interactions with virtual elements quickly, Crunchfish XR Skeleton adds hand-tracking capabilities to AR/VR devices by analyzing the image stream from the camera sensor(s) and then tracking 21 points on each hand with high precision. This set of 42 coordinates is then used to interact with virtual objects.
It is very complex to design and develop virtual objects in AR/VR. The objects appear in three dimensions and must look and feel as real as possible, which necessitates advanced software and very specific skills.
"One of our most important long-term goals has always been to bring OctoXR into AR technology, and when Crunchfish introduced their XR Skeleton, we knew that this integration was a big step towards that," said Ivan Rajkovic, CEO at SpectreXR.
“I was very impressed by how fast XR Skeleton could be integrated into OctoXR and get to a working demo. The combination of Crunchfish’s XR Skeleton and OctoXR enables a powerful solution that may shorten the time to market for many of our customers”, says Joakim Nydemark, CEO at Crunchfish Gesture Interaction.

AR vs MR - Unraveling the World of Augmented and Mixed Reality
This blog post provides an in-depth comparison between Augmented Reality (AR) and Mixed Reality (MR), two groundbreaking technologies that have transformed our interaction with the digital and physical worlds. The article discusses their applications, challenges, and current state of adoption.
VR Hand Tracking: More Immersive and Accessible Than Ever
Hand tracking technology in virtual reality has become a game changer, providing a more natural and immersive way of interacting with virtual objects. The number of VR devices supporting hand tracking has increased by 119% from 2021 to 2022, and the average price of VR headsets that support hand tracking has dropped by 93%. This trend is set to continue, making hand tracking in VR more accessible and affordable for everyone.
