    High performance gloves with haptics cost little more than motion sensing controllers.

    The question that comes to my mind is: Have they been working with another company called Rocksteady?

    I always thought gloves were the way forward. Just need some resistance on the back to make it feel like you're holding or squeezing things and then you're away.

    Re: BeBop Sensors announces Forte Data Glove for AR/VR

    I'd love to see a real world example of this working because all my VR games at least, do require buttons to be pressed to access menu's etc. So in the real world would you not still be using your normal controllers but now with a pair of gloves on ?

    Looking at the FO4 VR playthroughs,something like a data glove would make a lot of sense as it could mimic a Pip-Boy,as opposed to using the controllers which seems a bit finicky.

    But that would only be if the developers did the necessary work, I can't see indie's or the EA's of the world taking advantage of the tech for what is essentially a niche product. I hope i'm proved wrong but without this being packaged alongside a top tier headset I just think it will fade away in to nothingness.
