Snapshot of StretchSense

StretchSense's mission is to make virtual worlds accessible for all.

The market opportunity ahead for StretchSense

We are solving the problem of hand tracking for the world of content creation. Our core audience is represented by AAA game and VFX studios that use StretchSense gloves to digitise movement to accelerate the animated character hand content creation process.

Over the longer term, success will be defined by our goal to be the hands of the metaverse, where anyone accessing a virtual world can do so easily using StretchSense gloves. Our focus is to ensure the experience our gloves provide is immersive, natural and lifelike.

Accessibility is our key success criterion where our hand solution must work well with many different systems in many different use cases. Here, integrations and partnerships with virtual world makers will be paramount.

Why StretchSense is a great place to work

We are technology-driven and deeply care about transparency, care and focus. We are building a team of good people with good values who are motivated by industry-leading excellence.

Diversity and inclusiveness are equally as important in our makeup reflecting a truly representative workforce. Beyond our world-class technology, our people have a mindset instilled by our leadership to seek to make a difference unbound by convention.

This has garnered a work environment built around agility, execution and honesty which we believe have been true differentiators in our path to success against our overseas competition to date.
