HaptX today announced that they’re opening availability of development kits for their HaptX haptic feedback VR Gloves. The development kits include a pair of HaptX gloves – each featuring 130 tactile actuators that provide realistic touch across the hand and fingertips, with full tactile displacement of objects, size, and weight feedback. Built with HaptX’s patented microfluidic technology, HaptX Gloves also deliver powerful force feedback and industry-leading motion tracking with sub-millimeter precision.
The HaptX gloves and accompanying software are already supported in unity and Unreal Engine 4 – two of the most widespread games development engines – which should allow for increased chances of market integration towards VR experiences. Bringing the physical to the visual is the motto here, and there’s a world of potential to be achieved
