    Looks fantastic, let us know if you need any beta testers.

    I noticed the things on the fingers, are you doing texture simulation along with haptics and tracking? Having everything in one glove would be awesome, especially if the form factor could be improved. Personally I would be happy to use them for the increased immersion even if they were to stay as bulky as the model in the video.

    Thank you! It is really appreciate.

    The team is working really hard and it's good to finally show something. Wait for the next iteration!

    @Anglerfish:
    We do need betatesters, but around Montreal, Quebec, Canada only. The beta date is not set right now, but we need betatesters!
    Right now, there is not texture simulation, the module on the finger was generating a small force. The next version is focusing on stronger forces. Texture is in the research pipeline for sure, but we want the better macroscopic experience, then focus on the microscopic aspect.

    Stay tuned!

    Unfortunately that's clear across the country for me. Might still be worth it.

    I'm not sure texture was the right word, are the modules on the fingers for discerning something like a rubber from leather or stone in terms of compression? Obviously you're not going to feel the roughness of the leather vs the smoothness of the stone, but having materials with varying level of compression would be a big step up from everything feeling like stone or plastic. Regardless, even if it does it's still a big step up from feeling air or the rumble of a controller to feeling solid objects.

    Ha ha, we will give updates no worry!

    Right now, it's just a force without distinction of the material. Maybe we are not here today, but research never stop!
