Netherlands-basedÂ Manus Machina demonstrated a new virtual reality glove aimed at consumers at the E3 conference last week. The gloves connect wirelessly via Bluetooth to virtual reality headsets.
“There are currently no other VR gloves on the market that are wireless and platform free,” the company said on its website.
The gloves are already compatible with the Oculus Rift, Google Cardboard and Samsung’s Gear VR headsets, and the company plans to add support for the HTC Vive.
“Our aim is to be compatible with all VR systems,” the company said.
A pair of development kit gloves is available for pre-orderÂ for $279 with shipping scheduled for the last quarter of this year. A consumer version is expected out next year for about $200.
