Dexta Robotics unveiled its force feedback glove prototype in 2014. After more than 50 iterations, Dexta Robotics is officially launching Dexmo Enterprise Edition – the world’s first wireless force feedback gloves that integrate both motion capture and force feedback capacities. It enables people to perform real-life actions with their full-hand dexterity in virtual world. They can feel the size, shape and stiffness of virtual objects, marking one step closer to full-immersion in VR, and radically improve the quality of virtual training.
With Dexmo, users will be able to realistically feel the sensation of flipping a switch, pressing a button or turning a knob, and other complex hand interactions.
After the small batch distribution of Dexmo DK1 in 2017, Dexta Robotics gathered feedback from early adopters and had its manufacturability, hardware stability, core functionality, ergonomics and software support upgraded in every aspect. The company is now mass-manufacturing Dexmo Enterprise Edition, and the product may be directly ordered at Dexta Robotics’ website (www.dextarobotics.com) or email them (firstname.lastname@example.org) today.
“Today’s VR/MR devices can offer immersive visual and audio experiences. However, we are still far from complete immersion. A critical missing part is the lack of true force feedback technologies capable of providing users with real touch sensation. Existing methods mostly rely on vibration motors to simulate haptic feedback. They do not hinder finger movements. Therefore users do not perceive a real physical force, which is very different to reality,” said Dexta Robotics’ Technical Adviser, Dr.Per Ola Kristensson, who leads the Intelligent Interactive Systems group at the University of Cambridge.
“With the Dexmo force-feedback glove, users can feel the virtual world with their own hands which undoubtedly improves immersion,” he concluded.
