    Genetic tests are put in a government database and used as evidence in trials. But blood tests probably are too. Crime doesn't pay.

    Obviously glove temperature is a goal. I don't understand why they can't talk about that. If there making it, then obviously it's a goal to have the temperature changes.

    I think there might be another, perhaps better way to do the pressure parts of the glove that might allow them to have more on each hand. This would, of course, allow not only better feedback but might be able to be done in real time. I may have to give this some thought and maybe try something.

    My question is, assuming the outcome will be 2 gloves, goggles and full body tracking... How are they going to implement player interaction to the game's UI? My best guess would be gestures, or possibly buttons on forearm rig for accessing menus (somewhat like fallout). Very interesting, now all they need is multi-directional treadmill and very efficient wire harnesses to prevent tangling.

    I tried finding the two-point threshold on various parts of my hand (using two pencils) and just ended up drawing a bunch of lines and dots all over my hand lol Fun fact: the threshold is not the same on all parts of the hand, rather it's bigger on the palm (about 1 cm for me) and smaller on the pads of the finger (about 1 or 2 mm for me).

    I don’t know if you or they read public comments but I am absolutely in love with things like this and have been working on ideas like this in my head (I don’t make enough to physically make these items). But instead of a liquid (which makes things heavier) replacing the air tacs with thermal copper dots which only heat the air inside the tac or cool it ( like in a ceramic lamp for heat or air compression system for refrigerators) it would reduce weight and you could use smaller tubes for a more free flow design. Im just another guy on the internet :)

  39. Krusty Kraken

    Krusty Kraken27 days ago

    Looks cool, but it's probably expensive to manufacture (so the minimum price is high), and it's bulky so it would be much harder to make it a full body suit and it's uncomfortable to wear. I don't know why they don't use electromagnets with shielding, it would be extremely cheap to manufacture and very low latency. You could even produce an Electromagnet sheet, that you cut to fold around your exact body parts to have a tailored suit (although I can't think of a way to map the actuators correctly, at the moment). Why does everyone use expensive parts?! This is nearly useless. Businesses can buy this stuff, but if general consumers can't afford it then much fewer games will support it. It's ideal to be effective, but it's more important to be cheap.

    this video makes me uncomfortable because I feel like a little bit to much information was shared and you can visually see them uncomfortable with the information that was being asked of them... The tiniest amount of over sharing or theorizing could be the differences between comparators figuring things out.

    So cool that even with all their (necessary) secrecy they were willing to talk and broadcast even to this point! Which is why if I ever do get a haptic glove, it’s more likely to be from them and not from a “follower” company.

  78. Christopher Smith

    Christopher SmithMonth ago

    It seems like they should be working with electrorheological and magnetorheological fluids instead of pneumatics. They could vary pressure and temperature and create restriction in a sleeker design with zero latency. They could even custom print gloves. For that matter, if they got the design right they could use it for real world exoskeletal enhancement applications. The approach they are taking is probably going to be marketable sooner though, so I understand the idea. What they are doing is still cool, but we would have a better product much faster if they weren't so worried about protecting their intermediary design approach and decided to work off of their competition to get to the pinnacle product.

    "The glove does not have thermal" "Is that a goal?" "I don't think I can talk about that". What? It's obviously a goal if they are testing thermal with another machine/device. He could of at least said yes. They aren't testing thermal for the heck of it.

    I'm sure whatever they put out first will be something along those lines. This looks like something that will be done in stages over time as they master each new feature. I doubt they are going to try and package all that tech into just 1 product and stop there. They will likely have different versions with more advanced features and varying price points to ensure they maximize profits.
