As if virtual reality wasn’t cool enough, it’s about to get even more “real.”
Oculus is moving to let people fingerpaint, type, and act like a superhero in virtual reality. The VR hardware and software maker owned by Facebook is developing gloves that make those things, and more, possible.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, who gets to play with all the cool new toys, showed off the gloves yesterday during a tour of Oculus Research in suburban Seattle. Zuckerberg posted on Facebook that Oculus is working on new ways to bring hands into virtual reality. He writes that the gloves let people draw, type on a virtual keyboard, and even shoot webs like Spider-Man.
Don’t look for them anytime soon. There are some glitches to work out.Source: The Verge
