    I got to try this glove out with Thrillseeker (another VR youtuber) back at CES this year. I cannot even EXPLAIN how awesome of an experience it was. If you pair this with one of the next gen VR headsets, well... let's just say you won't see the world the same anymore 😅

    2:07 I think visually, the track pad is cleverly marked with the lines of the space bar. Its very clever. Props to the design team for a functioning modern aesthetic

      @William McEwen Because it lets us do things we can't IRL. I'll never get to hop on ship to the moon, so why not check it out virtually? Sure, I can get into a sword fight with some guy on the street, but I'd rather 'fake it' and live to tell the tale. For my buddy who's doomed to be stuck in a wheelchair for the rest of his life, the ability to "go on a hike" or "drive a motorbike" is *everything*.

      TBF, they have been around since 2016 and are still not remotely as good as they would need to be to actually immerse you beyond what hand presence does with a regular VR controller.
      VR porn industry would be throwing money at these projects if they actually worked.
      Truth is, the automated jerkoff machines, high-end HMDs, and subscription-based high-end virtual experiences still reign king in that world. The only innovation that market is growing are the automated jerkoff machines that sync to gameplay.
      Until a special hydraulic-air compressed or micro ultrasonic haptics in a glove to simulate thousands of different points on a glove, with a pully system like the video but small enough to not limit movement, is made, we won't have anything better than what Valve offers with the knuckles.

    VR games have weight to items. Boneworks/bonelab has this. What it does, it makes objects really heavy by making it so that your ingame hands dont move up as much. And you have to lift your actual hands higher. It feels really good and semi life like.

    Have you tried the HaptX gloves? They actually make a tech that makes you feel the objects in your hands. But they are an order more expensive than the Sensegloves.

  • Harrison Munitz
    Harrison Munitz 4 months ago +8

    Smarter Every Day did a video ~4 years ago about a similar set of gloves. iirc, it had small inflatable bubbles in the palm and along the fingers in order to solve the issue of actually feeling what you touched; when you touched something those particular bubbles would inflate, creating a bit of pressure against your skin. It seemed like a much more completely featured prototype, but it was wayyy jacked up with wires and tubes to make it work. This one seems much lighter, smaller, more portable, and generally more market ready (although still not completely ready yet)

    Haptic feedback WILL be a huge part the future of VR. I love how the product is blazing ahead using the overlay approach using mechanical components. While far-fetched, I think the better direction would be to somehow trick the somatosensory system using electro-magnetic signaling... somehow... throw enough smart people and money at it :D

    They can simulate weight for the VR thing by making a full body suit with elastic bands along the limbs so that when you pick something heavy up, the elastic bands tighten, giving more resistance to your limbs, simulating something heavy. Think like the excersize bands but on a suit

      @Ethan sounds like a good way to get wet with your vr hardware, lol

      EVOLICIOUS 3 months ago +1

      No need. you can actually just offset the virutal item and give it weight in vr space to simulate. Boneworks, Blade&Sorcery, Half Life Alyx, Walking Dead:S&S, all do this perfectly.

    • Corporate
      Corporate 3 months ago +2

      They found a better solution for this. If you have the glove tug on your wrists while trying to pull or push things it tricks your brain into thinking that you are actually pushing or pulling something, so it tenses the rest of the muscles in your arm and back to make it feel like you’re pushing or pulling something

    They could've made like 2 vertical lines of light to outline the left and right of the trackpad, like the leds of the touchbar above the keys it would actually help identify where the trackpad is and keep the clean look of the laptop "futuristic"

  • Devwardhan Kothari
    Devwardhan Kothari 4 months ago +2

    I was really thinking that the VR gloves could restrict hand movement to increase immersion. Like if you hold a glass in VR then the strings could stop extending and you hand could form an arc (the grab like shape) giving the illusion of actually holding something.
    Not sure how to implement this but it would really take it up a notch with all the haptics and resistors.

    The gloves Dustin from smarter everyday's video were cool. I'm sure you've seen it. Too bad all these companies are battling to get it right first, rather than work on it together to get there faster. So many good designs where some have figured it out and others haven't, in which together they could possibly solve it all. But I think the biggest problem is size. They can only do so much on your hand without putting you in a suit 😂

    I've thought now that the next generation of Apple laptops will adopt the same "no visible trackpad" strategy like this, but with one key difference: the ENTIRE area below the keyboard will be able to be used as a trackpad, simulated clicks and all. I'm not sure if palm/wrist rejection tech is that good yet, but I can easily see Apple going that route, because, really, why not?

  • Kevin

    The best answer to weighted haptics we've all seen at the gym. I've been envisioning haptic gloves attached to cables going in 4 or more directions with a piece of hardware creating and releasing tension based on what the VR app is telling it. Another version of this that's way beyond my understanding of how things would work would involve electromagnets. They are good enough to levitate and move trains that are weigh multiple tons. Tiny ones could create a more seamless simulation of weight and resistance. With enough fine tuning, you might be able to swim in VR with the sensation of moving your arms and legs through water.

    A cool feature that could make electric cars feel like gas cars when "running out of electricity" would be to have a replaceable battery, so instead of having one battery you would have to charge up, maybe you have a smaller backup battery that's not as built into the car and is easy enough to get out and swap it with a charged battery at the gas station or even just have it as a backup so you can make those extra miles

    • pyRoy6
      pyRoy6 4 months ago

      What I like about this idea is that the "emergency service" would not mean waiting 15-30 minutes (assuming 110v/~1kW) to partially charge the main battery. Your idea would provide an instantaneous 1-3kWh of charge. But it also seems like a bit complicated of a system for emergencies that are going to get less and less frequent. I suspect that it might make more sense to have systems like this in utility vehicles (mostly commercial, but not necessarily) that might also be able to provide 50kW+ charging to other cars.

  • mikumiku Obseq

    an above elbow glove would give you the ability to have cables that restrict the elbow fulcrum which could resist up and down movement. It wouldn't be true "weight" but it would give the impression of weight giving some resistance to the momvement of it.

    I usually upgrade my Dell XPS 13 every other year but they really just make it worse overall. They focus so much on making it thinner every year when it gets so hot you can fry an egg on it. I upgrade because it has the best screen and the processors are more energy efficient. When Asus can make their dual screen 14" with 4k screens then I'll switch.

    This is definitely a start, and could use some small tweaks in my opinion that would make it better.
    Here they are:
    -Trackpad has a white light illuminating the edges, similar to the touchbar up top
    -The bezels chamfered similarly to the MacBook Air M2 screen
    -The inside of the USB-C ports are white and not black to prevent visual clashing in the all-white chassis
    -Keys are slightly more defined and a little less flush with eachother. I think it types better that way

    I know what I’d be doing with those gloves 😏

    A very elegant solution for the trackpad in the Dell laptop would've to outline it with soft white light, would fit very nicely with the touchbar as well

      Or even just 1 really thin and light line on each side of the trackpad. Doesn't destroy the minimal look nor does it cost anything extra.

    I've tried a demo once where they attatched motors to my right wrist and, in VR, I could balance a sphere on a plane just by feel. The most amazing part is that the torque ramps up as it gets near the further edges (as it should), and do the opposite as it got near my hand. I am really looking forward to that being more popular.

    As a VR proponent haptic gloves, vests, etc are a total gimmick imo. That R&D and funds could be used on better games, display/lenses tech, or best of all BCIs for true VR experiences sooner rather than later.

    Great tech, but VR is a bit worrisome of how it might negatively affect the youth and society.

    Lol, just bought that laptop after watching a bunch of reviews that all mention those exact 3 points...Love it, Sooo prettty. only thing that almost stopped me was the touch bar but can remap the esc or del key if it really starts bothering me

    Now this is definitely another step towards fully immersive VR experience, to be able to grab things by hand and feel the objects. Next up is to smell and taste 😋

      @Hunter Lind Not in the slightest. The index has finger tracking, not resistance and feedback. You can't "feel" anything on the index with these gloves you can.

      @Joel yeah but i cant tell if there's a fire or anything, if something dangerous happens, I could be stuck in a fire, so having something like that helps, its like how deaf people have subtitles on the tv so they can "see" the words

      @Malindrome That seems kinda pointless, unless we are talking about direct brain conection I don't see the point of having "smell subtitles" except for very specific applications.

      Valve Index can already do all of this for the most part.

    Well for that glove if we could find ways to have materials contract/constrict the same way our muscles in some way or another (perhaps through electric current?) It could be feasible
