Shoot Webs Like Spider Man With The Oculus VR Gloves
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg posted a photo of himself testing the Oculus VR Gloves. He also mentioned a few details in the captions.
Zuckerberg visited the company research lab in Redmond, WA where scientists are working on the Oculus Rift and other devices related to virtual and augmented reality. While there, Zuckerberg got to tour and take photographs of the facility. He also got to test some of the lab's prototypes particularly the VR gloves that will work with the Oculus.
Zuckerberg explained that the company is developing a way to involve the hands in virtual and augmented reality. The Oculus VR Gloves are capable of performing a number of tasks. So far, Zuckerberg confirmed that users can draw and type on a virtual keyboard using the tech. What's more impressive is that it shoot virtual webs just like Spider-Man. One of the photos posted by the Facebook founder shows himself wearing the VR gloves and doing the popular hand gesture which Spider-man does when shooting webs.
Tech Crunch got hold of other details regarding the prototype VR gloves. One detail shared to them was that the gloves have a slim form-factor. Tech Crunch also mentioned that the photos show what possibly could be OptiTrack Prime 17W cameras. The Verge pointed out that Oculus has previously acquired two companies involved in glove-free hand-tracking and 3D tech specifically Nimble VR and 13th Lab. It remains to be seen if Oculus finally develops a way to enjoy VR without having to wear gloves.
The VR industry has been on a roll in recent years with the likes of the PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, Samsung Gear VR, Google Daydream View and other VR headsets garnering headlines. Oculus, however, hit a snag recently after losing the copyright infringement case filed by Zenimax. Facebook also pulled out around 200 Oculus demo stations in Best Buy stores around the country after its sales weren't performing as expected.
