AVATAR VR

With the pitch “Feel & Touch VR”, Avatar VR is our newest wireless controller creation for Virtual Reality. As Gloveone was before, it has been designed to provide a realistic sense of touch thanks to the use of haptic technology but adding an impressive movement tracking capability.

UNIQUE FEATURES

Avatar VR includes all the features present in Gloveone plus some very unique capabilities that makes it the most powerful solution ever for natural interaction in Virtual Reality.

body

MOTION CAPTURE

Our full upper-body tracking technology is based on a minimal setup composed of motion sensors that are able to track the movements of your chest, arms and hands with pinpoint accuracy.

SENSOR FUSION

One 9-axis IMU is included in the mainboard in order to accurately gather Rotation, Acceleration and Compass data which is then fused with the additional VR tracking data of the system of your choosing for optimal tracking and latency. This is especially helpful when dealing with instances of low-confidence optical tracking.

FULL OCCLUSION SURVIVOR

Even if both hands were placed in “black boxes” where no visual tracking were possible, Avatar VR’s tracking technology would still work flawlessly, opening the door to specialized trainings and simulations that were technically impossible up to now.

drift_correction

DRIFT CORRECTION

We are able to provide Near Zero Drift Experience (NZDE) to our users, which means that you can repeat the same gestures and freely experiment with the virtual environment without any significant error accumulation.

haptic

HAPTIC FEEDBACK

In order to allow users to touch what they see in VR, we feel that the best possible option is to translate subtle vibrations into simulated touch sensation. Hence, Avatar VR is built with an array of 10x vibrotactile actuators that vibrate in frequencies to which humans are naturally receptive to, in order to be accepted by the brain as “Real Touch” input.

smart_controller

SMART CONTROLLER

Avatar VR is not only haptics but also a Smart Controller! We have included conductive zones in the glove that enable users to trigger specific actions within any chosen scenario. This feature has Zero Latency as it’s circuit-based and not dependent on specific gesture interpretation.

finger

FULL FINGER TRACKING

Full Finger Tracking is achieved by the use of 6x 9-AXIS IMUs. We use IMU tech as we consider it the best solution in the market, as opposed to the simpler flex/bending sensor which only allows one degree of freedom.

antibacterial

ANTIBACTERIAL

Avatar VR is designed to be bacteria-resistant and even washable, once the electronic component is removed. We use automotive-grade protection for the electronics, and all components are water-resistant.

latency

LATENCY

Stimuli synchrony plays an essential role in perception. In the real life this comes naturally, but in artificial Virtual Reality stimuli must be coupled in the most reliable way. In the case of tactile perception such issue has been studied using crossmodal congruency and detectability experiments showing that the delay between your action and the corresponding touch feedback should not be above 30-40ms to be perceived coherently.
For that reason, our haptic gloves provide almost immediate touch feedback by using vibrotactile actuators with a latency of just 20ms and low high speed communication technology: Bluetooth 4.0 LE with less than 8ms latency or cable connection with just 1ms delay. Thus, the total latency of our haptic gloves is under 28ms, giving you a highly realistic perception of touch.
