Costing €1000 EUR, the development kit included the following:
- One Pair of Manus VR Gloves with USB RF Dongle
- SDK for C++ and C#
- Plugins for Unity 5
- Unreal Engine 4 and Motion Builder.
The data glove itself is machine washable and includes two sensors per finger, a vibration motor for haptic feedback, and a rechargeable battery. The glove can be used with the HTC Vive for a range of applications, including training simulations, VR Arcades and motion capture.
Stephan van den Brink, CEO at Manus VR had this to say; “Since we started shipping our engineering samples last year, we’ve received an incredible demand for a professional data-glove Working closely with our early access developers such as NASA, MIT and Cambridge University we were able to enhance our product to an unprecedented level.”
The development kit is available for order now through the Manus VR official website.
