While Oculus wants you ditch controllers for your own hands as VR controllers, HaptX Inc. wants pro grade VR system users to feel the virtual environment in the real world.
The HaptX Gloves DK2 are haptic feedback gloves. Typical haptic gloves only offer vibration and force feedback. HaptX Gloves, on the other hand (no pun intended!), physically displace the user’s skin the way a real object would.
HaptX achieves true-contact haptics through the company’s patented microfluidic technology which replicates the feeling of touching real objects. Each HaptX Glove has over 130 points of tactile feedback per hand, affording it the ability to physically displace the user’s skin up to 2 mm.
With the ability to feel the objects at skin level, this technology will add an unprecedented level of realism to users when interacting with virtual objects or when handling robotics.
In addition, these VR gloves also boasts the industry’s strongest force feedback and the most accurate motion tracking. HaptX Gloves DK2 is not limited to VR use; it also has application in robotics too.

They are available for purchase by businesses. If your business is need for a VR glove, you can request a quote from HaptX.
