Default Oculus Shows Hand Tracking Gloves

Oculus Chief Scientist Michael Abrash recently made a blog post highlighting some amazing technology being developed by the Oculus team, as well as his thoughts about VR moving into the future. Technologies shown here include adaptive optics, eye, facial, and skeletal tracking, and advanced hand tracking. The hand tracking being achieved here is using "retroreflector-covered gloves and lots of cameras" to get that level of tracking quality. This is astounding to me. I was amazed when I saw the Knuckles controllers from SteamVR, but the technology being shown here is just mind blowing. The team at Oculus are definitely working on some incredible things. The hand tracking part of the blog is near the end of the post. It will take many years to fully solve each of them. And of course there are many other challenges, like haptic interaction—to say nothing of full-body haptics—as well as smell and, someday, the vestibular sense and taste.
