Sensor technology company, BeBop Sensors announced on Tuesday, 22 October 2019, that it has integrated its Forte Data Glove with the Oculus Quest to deliver the world’s first all-in-one VR enterprise training and design system.
The BeBop Sensors Forte Data Glove combined with Oculus Quest aims to provide a complete VR headset/data glove solution that fits in a small bag for easy shipping with almost no set-up for on-the-go VR enterprise training and maintenance. The integration allows wearers to do real practical things in the virtual world with natural hand interactions. The gloves also provide touch-feedback, making the virtual world more tangible.
