#BuildYourNorthStar Workshop Brings AR to Life in 48 Hours

Leapmotion

In support of the event, our team donated Leap Motion Controllers. Our CTO David Holz and engineer/ AR tennis champion Jonathon Selstad joined the workshop, along with former Leap Motion engineer Adam Munich. He had experience building homebrew data gloves and mocap systems for years before discovering Leap Motion. Noah created what may be the first 3D-printable mount for the Leap Motion Controller on the Oculus DK1 in 2013.

Hand tracking has always been one of those options that sound nice in principle, but would you actually pay for it, adding a Leap Motion device or something a little more extravagant like a data glove? Some probably would but for the majority, the lack of haptic feedback which you get with a bundled controller may not seem worthwhile just to wiggle your fingers.

Going (Literally) Hands-on With Manus Prime Haptic Gloves

Peter Graham

For consumers, the best you’ll get at the moment is the Valve Index controllers but when it comes to business applications, that choice is blown right open.

It has long been the case that gloves have been associated with VR, the logical choice for anyone wanting to touch the digital realm.

The Ghost Howls

One of the most interesting encounters I had in my trip to Beijing has been with Dexta Robotics , the company behind the Dexmo force-feedback glove s. So, here you are a very long deep dive into Dexmo gloves and my experience with them. Making a Chinese heart with my hands while wearing Dexta Robotics’s Dexmo Gloves. Just look at the gloves and not at my face: I seem an idiot in this photo… Dexta Robotics. Features of Dexmo gloves (Image by Dexta Robotics).
