uSens Awards $50,000 uDev Challenge Grand Prize at AWE

This past week we exhibited at Augmented World Expo in Santa Clara. The annual AR/VR event is gaining traction as the leading merger of minds in our industry, and this year’s event was no different. We were pleased to demo our latest technology with the 4,700 attendees who came out to make this the biggest AWE yet. AWE was a time to celebrate for uSens, as we announced the winners of our uDev Challenge and awarded cash prizes to our U.S. regional champions. The #uDevChallenge saw software developers compete to create unique AR and VR apps using our SDK and the uSens Fingo module. When the final panelist scores were tallied, Chris Wren and his app MonsterShop walked away with the $50,000 U.S. grand prize. MonsterShop delivers the framework for a VR retail experience by allowing players to customize the appearance of monster avatars via drag-and-drop hand gestures. $50,000 is a lot of money, so we asked Chris: What will you do next? “I’m putting my daughter through college!” Well done, Chris! You can purchase the same Fingo module Chris used to develop his prize-winning app! Visit usens.myshopify.com to get yours for just $99.
