VR technology is all the rage these days. Everybody wants to try it and most of the tech companies are trying to improve it, making it more accessible and affordable. Day by day the VR experience is getting better but there is one thing missing from total emersion and that is touching the objects and interacting with them. Imagine you are in a 1st person shooter game and you don’t need any controllers, you are using your hand to shoot the gun, reloading and aiming or controlling a car and interacting with the dashboard. Now all this thing can become real thanks to Dexta Robotics.
the Chinese startup behind Dexmo has spent the last two years coming up with over 20 prototypes before getting to the current version. Unfortunately for us mere mortals, it’ll be a while before we can get our hands on this device. CEO Aler Gu told Engadget that he’s only made a batch of Dexmo and is currently seeking keen software developers plus VR/MR (mixed reality) market leaders who can take full advantage of his gear before he eventually takes it to market — be it for gaming, education, medical or training.
The Dexmo is a high-tech glove that allows you to explore the size, shape, and stiffness of objects in the virtual realm. The glove’s force feedback provides variable resistance.based on the items you touch during your virtual experience.
