Manus VR started a few years ago with a glove that made it possible to accurately track each finger. Meanwhile, there are some vendors with similar concepts, but Manus VR goes one step further and offers the gloves additionally with haptic feedback for each finger and revises its product range.
Manus VR shows Prime Series with haptic feedback
The new products are offered as Prime One, Haptic Prime and Xsens Prime. Prime One is the main product and can wirelessly stream finger movements directly to Unity, Unreal, MotionBuilder or other applications. Haptic Prime also offers a haptic feedback, which should make different materials and different resistance felt. Xsens Prime complements the Xsens motion capture suit.
Because there are only a few applications for the gloves, it is more a product for companies, developers and arcades. In addition, the gloves with haptic feedback cost at least 4990 euros and thus most consumers should probably quickly lose interest. Still, it’s an exciting technology and Manus VR has already won over Toyota, Netflix, Google, Audio, Airbus and many more as customers. Our impressions of the glove from the year 2017 should be treated with caution. We assume that the developers have since been able to eliminate many errors.
