Deep, immersive experiences
Virtual reality is making it possible for gamers to immerse themselves in their favorite fantasy realms; for doctors and scientists to demonstrate cutting-edge procedures in real-time; and for students to explore new ideas and concepts as if they were actually partaking in them. Now virtual reality is getting another amazing innovation to fully immerse yourself into your favorite platform.
What is it?
Gloveone are virtual reality gloves that give you the ability to touch and feel VR. They actually turn you into the smart controller. These gloves give haptic feedback through ten vibrotactile. Haptic feedback, or haptics as they are commonly referred to, is the use of touch to send feedback or information to the end user. You know when your phone buzzes a little bit when you send an email? That’s an example of haptics at work. Haptics are of course a large part of the gaming industry. Rumble controllers and integration with mobile apps are a few examples of haptics at work.
How does it work?
With Gloveone you can weigh virtual objects, interact with buttons and elements, feel and differentiate textures, feel sound waves, receive haptic warnings and alert events, trigger action and commands like a smart controller and feel everything from the soft fluttering of a butterfly to the intensity of a virtual fire.
Communication between Gloveone and your chosen virtual reality platform happens through wireless Bluetooth 4.0 technology. This technology is compatible with virtually any tracking system from Microsoft Kinect to Leap Motion and everything in between. There are 6 IMU’s for precise motion tracking as well as a 9-axis IMU for improved hand tracking. Gloveone also comes with a long life Li-Po battery so you can play for extended periods without worrying about batteries.
Why does it matter?
This is just the first of many stepping stones on the path to engaging with the virtual reality world. We told you about a potential Netflix deal that would make virtual reality even more lucrative. Can you imagine what our favorite shows would be like if we could interact with them through Gloveone? We’re not quite there yet, but perhaps one day this will be an amazing addition to the virtual reality world.
