PARIS, Nov. 18, 2022

Lynx Mixed Reality and Ultraleap today announced that they have been named a CES® 2023 Innovation Awards Honoree for Lynx’s R-1 headset, powered by Ultraleap hand tracking.

The Lynx R-1 is a standalone Mixed Reality (MR = AR + VR) headset built on top of the Snapdragon® XR2 platform. It is the most versatile MR headset available and provides a new world of opportunities for XR experiences.

It combines everything you would expect from a state-of-the-art Metaverse device including a large field of view, spatial audio, high-quality spatial tracking and realistic color rendering. The Lynx headset uses hand tracking as its primary mode of interaction in partnership with Ultraleap’s industry leading technology.

Stan Larroque, founder and CEO of Lynx, said: “We truly believe we have the opportunity to create the European Champion of Mixed Reality. This CES honor means we’re one step closer to achieving that. We’re lucky to work with the best technology companies in the world including Qualcomm and Ultraleap, who have been fundamental to the success of the product. We look forward to showcasing the Lynx R-1 and its potential during CES and beyond.”  

Matt Tullis, VP of XR at Ultraleap, said: “We’re proud to work alongside Stan and the rest of the Lynx team to help bring this ground-breaking product to life and showcase the power of hand tracking to even more people.”
