VRgluv Develops Haptic Glove with Force Feedback
VRgluv works on haptic gloves for Virtual Reality that feature force feedback technology in order to increase the level of immersion in VR environments. The point is adding yet another sense to Virtual Reality experiences so that you can see and also feel virtual objects.
VRgluv Wants You to Feel More Realistic Experiences
Virtual Reality is about immersing yourself in realistic experiences, and it has achieved this in both virtual and sound, but the company claims it’s still behind in sense.
“We set out to enhance everyday life through VR, so we had to decide where to start. Which senses should we attack first? Vision, hearing, and touch. The current high-end headsets are able to project a virtual world exceptionally well, and we decided that there is not currently a touch interface to match the performance of the headsets. That is why VRgluv was born”
VRgluv’s glove has full hand tracking and rotational wrist tracking. Your virtual hands will move exactly as your real hand in both orientation and position with very high accuracy. Developers claim that haptic feedback will improve things further because it has the ability to recreate the shape of virtual objects in your hand.
The haptic gloves also include force sensors in every finger in order to provide real-time feedback to the user. You will basically feel the difference between soft and hard objects and be able to squish, crush, and interact with them in many realistic ways.
VRgluv will be compatible with all major VR headsets in the market, including the HTC Vive and the Oculus Rift. The glove is close to being released but an exact release date is still unknown, however, you can sign up on their website and get a $20 coupon for preorders.
