The Virtual Reality glove that allows gamers to touch and feel objects has been developed by a team of Engineering students. Hands Omni glove uses tiny bladders of air to create sensation of touching and holding physical materials in games. The Prototype of glove, developed at Rice University in Houston, Texas, inflates and deflates small bladders in each fingertip in response to player touching, pressing or gripping objects in a virtual world. Glove could support games played on Virtual Reality headsets such as Facebook's Oculus Rift or Sony's Project Morpheus, in theory. Kevin Koch, mechanical Engineering student working on the Project, said Virtual Reality was currently audio and visual, but there was no sense of touch. Hands Omni glove give a sense of force feedback for any object that the player touches in the game, making Virtual Reality more complete. Each air bladder in the glove can inflate and deflate independently to better mimic the feel of an in-game object. Pressure to ring finger and little finger is link, with developers arguing that people rarely pick things up with just their pinkie. The entire glove weighs around 350 grams and is wireless to give players a full range of motion. Development of the Hands Onmi glove was sponsored by Houston-base gaming firm Virtuix. The agreement with the company means technology behind the glove hasn't been reveal, but the development team say it should be fairly simple for developers to implement into games.

History

The Sayre Glove, created by Electronic Visualization Laboratory in 1977, was the first wire Glove. In 1982, Thomas G. Zimmerman filed a Patent for optical flex sensor mount in Glove to measure finger bending. Zimmerman worked with Jaron Lanier to incorporate ultrasonic and magnetic Hand position tracking technology to create the Power Glove and Data Glove, respectively. The Optical flex sensor used in Data Glove was invented by Young L. Harvill who scratched fiber near the finger joint to make it locally sensitive to bending. One of the first wired gloves available to home users in 1987 was the Nintendo Power Glove. This was designed as a gaming glove for Nintendo Entertainment System. It had crude tracker and finger bend sensors, plus buttons on the back. Resistive sensors in PowerGlove were also used by hobbyists to create their own datagloves. This was followed by CyberGlove, created by Virtual Technologies, Inc. In 1990. Virtual Technologies was acquired by Immersion Corporation in September 2000. In 2009, CyberGlove line of products was divested by Immersion Corporation and a new company, CyberGlove Systems LLC, took over development, manufacturing and sales of CyberGlove. In addition to CyberGlove, Immersion Corp also developed three other Data Glove products: CyberTouch, which vibrates each individual finger of the glove when the finger touches an object in Virtual Reality; CyberGrasp which actually simulates squeezing and touching of solid as well as spongy objects; and CyberForce device which does all of the above and also measures precise motion of user's entire arm. In 2002, P5 Glove was released by Essential Reality. In normal applications, it works as a two-dimensional mouse and a few computer games were specially adapted to provide 3D support for it. The P5 Glove is compatible with Microsoft Windows XP and classic Mac OS. Unofficial drivers for Linux exist as well. While it received some positive reviews from gadget and gaming magazines, its lack of compatible software and other issues cause it to remain a novelty. It has since been discontinue. Following P5 Glove is 5 Glove. Data Glove and flexor strip kit sold by Fifth Dimension Technologies. The Package uses flexible optical-bending sensing to track hand and arm movement. The Glove can be used with 5DT's ultrasonic tracking System, 5DT Head and 5DT Hand tracker, which can track movement from up to two metres away from the unit's transmitter. Concern about the high cost of most complete commercial solutions, Pamplona et al. Propose new input device: image-base Data Glove. By attaching a camera to the hand of the user and a visual marker to each finger tip, they use computer vision techniques to estimate the relative position of finger tips. Once they have information about tips, they apply inverse kinematic techniques in order to estimate the position of each finger joint and recreate movements of fingers of the user in a virtual world.
