Meta says VR gloves rely on tactile rendering to send "precise commands to the hand actuators" and sketch out a vision that matches how people feel to what they're doing in the metaverse.
Meta, formerly Known as Facebook, is going straight into virtual reality, showing off its latest haptic glove that can provide sensory feedback in the digital realm.
At the end of October, Facebook changed its name to Meta, shifting its focus from social media to developing virtual reality technology.
In a blog post on Tuesday, Meta shared the latest breakthrough in research into haptic gloves by its virtual Reality technology company Reality Labs, noting that the product has been seven years in the making.
The company shared a video showing two people testing out tactile gloves in a demo metal comb, clenching their fists, picking up blocks, throwing things, shaking hands, knocking over dominoes, and playing Jenga together.
Meta says the glove relies on haptic rendering to send "precise commands to the driver in the hand," corresponding to tracking technology that can determine hand positions and the properties of virtual objects in the metaverse.
In their current state of development, the palm appears to be lined with small soft robotic motors that move in unison, transmitting corresponding sensations to the user's hand movements. However, Meta points out that haptic gloves won't hit the market anytime soon.
