HaptX Announces Release of DK2 Virtual Reality Gloves

HaptX (previously known as AxonVR LLC) announced prototypes for virtual reality gloves back in 2017. After years of researching, developing, and prototyping, they have finally succeeded, and announced the release of their HaptX Gloves DK2.

These gloves are top of the line technology, providing realistic tough feedback for users. The design uses microfluidic technology to precisely displace skin on a user’s hands and fingers which simulates touch. HaptX promises these gloves deliver industrial-grade performance for professional applications with endless possibilities. Alternative haptic gloves are limited to vibration and force feedback, limiting precision and functionality. The DK2 gloves use more than 130 points of tactile feedback per hand, providing the realism required for training and simulation, as well as robotics. Haptic gloves are already in use around the world for training, simulating, and controlling robots from a distance – but with the increased precision and realism from the DK2 gloves, these uses could soon be expanded.
