Mark Zuckerberg Shows VR Gloves for Finger Tracking

In a posting a few hours ago on his Facebook profile, Mark Zuckerberg has shown the world some of the projects they are working on from the Oculus lab in Redmond, Washington.

As you can see in the picture above, they are working on special gloves that could be integrated with Oculus Rift to perform detailed work in a world of Virtual and Augmented Reality. Although they have not given technical details, the gloves seem to be covered by sensors that will help to identify all the movements that are made with them.

In the commentary of the photo indicated that they are working on new ways to get their hands on virtual and augmented reality, offering the possibility to draw, write on a virtual keyboard, and even shoot spider webs, like Spider Man, exactly what he is doing in the picture.

He says that in these laboratories are the best scientists and engineers in the world discovering the limits of virtual and augmented reality, team led by Michael Abrash, who is working on issues related to advanced optics, eye tracking, mixed reality and new ways of mapping the human body.

Among other things, they want to create glasses small enough that they can be taken anywhere, software that allows new experiences and technology to interact with the virtual world just like we do with the physical.

Great news is about to arrive in the world of virtual reality, although we have to wait few years to have them in our homes.
