However, the limitations of the user can be very good to make up for the shortcomings of the data glove
Virtual reality--application of data glove
in the solution of selected tasks.
How it works: An active-tracking haptics system linking two PCs is used, with a virtual-reality data glove
capturing the texture of an object being felt by one person.
Sensor-covered clothing and Data Gloves
are cumbersome, and today's head-mounted displays are uncomfortable and it has been documented that it can cause vertigo.
The medical field reports that the data glove
would have "advantages for patient motor therapy, rehabilitation and tele-rehabilitation post-surgical evaluation, tele-operations, estimation of functional assessment or disability.
Mark Schelbert, managing partner of Shackleton Advisors, added, "The data glove
application for industrial engineering, motion capture, and gaming continues to be an underserved market.
The company has incorporated the Bend Sensors(R) into the Data Glove
, which among its numerous uses, include interaction with personal computers, replacing a computer mouse, gaming, virtual reality projects, telerobotic applications, and motion capture tasks.
Summary: BeBop Sensors, a developer of smart fabric sensor technology, has announced BeBop Sensors that are designed Marcel Modular Data Gloves
for OEMS in the virtual reality/augmented reality markets.
To acquire data for SLI, earlier data gloves
and accelerometers were used to specify hand.
With data gloves
, optical devices, head trackers and hand-held objects a user perceives to be in a virtual world.
Entries range from a hydrogel that pours drugs into wounds and intelligent data gloves
for arthritis sufferers to pollution-eating inks and real-time route planners for in-transit travellers.
We needed a system that enabled natural 3D interactions with bare hands, but with as much flexibility and accuracy as data gloves
