OMG, I just found the best thing ever. Of course it’s not released yet lol
VR gloves, guys, GLOVES!!! I’ve read some reviews and from what I’ve read they are the best thing ever. Guys who did the review tested them and they were able to grab and move all kind of objects, feel raindrops, touch and feel textures in game, feel bugs crawling on their hands and do all kind of other amazing things. I just can’t wait for this to become available!
Just checked out the plexus video – wow!! As much as I love seeing physical-feedback gloves, the streamlined design with haptic drivers at the fingertips (probably vibro motors?) looks great, and should definitely give enough feedback for our brains to know what’s going on.
I’m really excited to see more development when it comes to physics interaction with designs like this – will users prefer pure physics-based interaction, or will it be better to have objects stick to the user’s hands a little bit? This sort of hardware development is driving tons of cool psych and design research!
