Precision hand tracking

Existing VR gloves are expensive and can only be used with proprietary software. In order to popularize the glove type controller, we made it compatible with SteamVR, the most popular VR content platform. By using the ContactGlove Driver, all existing content can be played using the glove.
Button emulation system with glove built-in sensor
[Video 9: https://prtimes.jp/api/movieim.php?url=www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWVDqzkffGQ] As a glove-type device, ContactGlove can not only acquire finger movements, but also can reproduce button and stick operations using only finger movements, just like a general VR controller.
Original tactile feedback system using shape memory alloy
[Video 10: https://prtimes.jp/api/movieim.php?url=www.youtube.com/watch?v=7b0K3tviBTk]
A tactile feedback module that uses shape memory alloys (SMA) developed in-house faithfully reproduces the feeling of touching an object in a VR space. (Models with a haptic feedback module are less comfortable to wear than models without a haptic feedback module, so we do not recommend using them for games.
