Alex Hern is the CEO and co-founder of Tsunami XR in 2011 and is the current chief executive officer at the San Diego headquarters augmented and virtual reality company. Tsunami XR, previously known as Tsunami VR, combines functionalities like virtual reality, mixed reality, extended reality, 360-degree the virtual world and augmented reality creating a cross-reality where objects are projected for entertainment or research purposes.
Currently, there are many gaming and video applications being developed that utilize these technologies making the demand for them quite high. With the Tsunami XR, Alex Hern and David Ross hope to bring the future of cross-reality to the present. Using technologies like machine learning and artificial intelligence, the team at Tsunami has found success in the XR space.
There have been a number of challenges in the development of cross-reality faced by his expert team. One of them being the projection of the real work objects from their real-world reality to the virtual environment while making sure they cannot be distinguished from the real ones. Tsunami uses motion sensing technologies to monitor the facial expressions, eye movements, and body and hand gestures to project them as real as they can be in the XR space.
