TESLASUIT have unveiled a new glove which allows users to feel virtual textures. The company say it makes the immersion into VR more accurate and realistic.The TESLASUIT GLOVE can be used together with the TESLASUIT full-body haptic feedback suit as a set or separately. The glove integrates haptics, motion capture, biometry and force feedback. It has a range of breakthrough applications, from enterprise XR-training to rehabilitation and much more.
“We’ve created the TESLASUIT GLOVE to expand XR training capabilities," said Sergei Nossoff, CEO of TESLASUIT. "We have already been transforming the XR industry and now we are empowering the user to do so much more."
Haptics, equipped with a 3×3 display for each finger, contributes to tactile sense, enabling users to feel virtual textures naturally.
The glove can detect the movements of the wearer’s hands and use those to control the accuracy of movements.
The exoskeleton element, together with the motion capture and force feedback systems, find their application in robotic tele-control systems as well as medical rehabilitation.
In addition, the integrated biometric system gathers real-time data while in use – allowing for emotional state, stress level, and heart rate to be relayed.
The glove is wireless and is connected to the suit via Wi-Fi. It was showcased at CES2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada on the 7th January and will hit the market in the second half of the year, Nossoff added.
