During CES 2018 next month, BioInteractive Technologies will be showcasing and demonstrating their new Tenzr VR wristband which has been designed to provide six hand gestures : left, right, up, down, hand open, hand close, without the need for any calibration or setup. The wristband controllers can be used with any augmented reality or virtual reality systems. If you are attending CES 2018 in January the new virtual reality hardware will be available for a first-hand experience at Eureka Park, Sands, Hall G – 50915 and at Cypress Booth (MP25365). The developers of Tenzr explain a little more :
TENZR: the only accurate, hands-free, camera-free, wrist-worn gesture recognition controller for VR AR. For the last three years the company has focused on developing an easy to use, comfortable, accurate, and reliable gesture recognition wearable that will help replace current mobile VR AR controllers. This innovative product will provide a more immersive experience to users by freeing the hand from holding bulky button-based controllers.
Possible application for the Tenzr VR Wrist-Band include :
– Mobile or standalone VR: replaces the handheld controller
– AR: the band complements voice-enabled smart glasses
– Mixed Reality: it frees the user from having to lift their hand up to the field of view of the camera in the headset. For example, with Microsoft HoloLens
