CaptoGloves

Tired of your dumb gloves, get some VR smart gloves instead! :raised_hand_with_fingers_splayed: :raised_hand_with_fingers_splayed:

An independent glove tracking solution, with mouse emulation to help it work with most games. Like this one:

We’re talking $490USD for a pair though, so don’t use them for dog walks.

I wonder if a hobo edition of this would be better, in that forget all the finger tracking and the like, but just provide a glove that can be used with a HOTAS, but you can ‘head look’ and then a small switch in the finger (or fingers, like a 2 cent switch between finger and thumb) that allows you to trigger a ‘MOUSE1’ (or some other gesture, like ‘rotate’ etc).

It would be a bit crappy, but it would be very cheap. In VR I could then look up and over and turn that Huey dome light on/off as much as I liked, and then been about $400 less poor. It would work great with existing HOTAS’s, save grabbing the mouse blind and probably enhance the feeling of being there (a pilot, not a hobo).

Only if we can call it ‘HoboGloveVR’ and offer a fingerless edition as part of the ‘Derelicte’ fashion range.

Heheheh, love the reference!

But really, we got @Troll roll here for the technical details, @komemiute me for the design and @fearlessfrog Fearlessfrog for the idea.

We can’t miss.

No, really- why not?
You can take the circuitry of a mouse, and morph/apply/magicabalilla to a pair of nice looking gloves…
AS you said, jsut enough to register some “action” as a right or left mouse click.

No motion tracking, no fancypantsy high tech.

How hard can it be? (That’s what she said, boom)
