If you’re serious about your virtual-reality adventures, why not get devices that let you feel it. We’re not talking about controllers that give force feedback and vibrations. We’re talking about tactile feedback. And there is one now. HaptX Inc. announced the release of HaptX Gloves DK2, their most advanced haptic feedback gloves. HaptX Gloves DK2 is the first set of gloves with true-contact haptics available commercially.
HaptX Gloves DK2 features 133 points of tactile feedback per hand, up to 40 lbs. of force feedback per hand, and motion tracking with sub-millimeter precision.
Unlike other haptic gloves, which are limited to vibration and force feedback, HaptX Gloves physically displace the user’s skin the way a real object would. They deliver unprecedented realism, with more than 130 points of tactile feedback per hand. DK2 is excellent for professionals in training and simulation, industrial design, and robotics.
According to the makers, Fortune 500 companies and governments worldwide already use HaptX Gloves to train their workforces. Automakers also design and test new vehicles with them. Other companies use them to control robots intuitively from a distance.
The company spent two years developing HaptX Gloves DK2, reducing size and weight, improving fit and ergonomics, enabling room-scale VR support. They’ve added numerous SDK features including multi-user networking, and enhancing haptic fidelity.
The company also said that the COVID-19 pandemic increased the demand for virtual training and design tools. Technology companies are growing their investment in telerobotics.
HaptX achieves true-contact haptics through its patented microfluidic technology, which replicates the feeling of touching real objects. You can learn more about HaptX Gloves DK2 at haptx.com.
