Real VR Hands and Interaction with Virtual Objects

Serving as the most widely-used body part for communication, hand is a very important tool for human to interact with the world. Especially with the continuing development of virtual reality and augmented reality, hand pose information has gradually become an indispensable component for improving users’ experience in interacting with computing devices. Therefore, this project aims at enabling an expressive virtual hand reconstruction to increase immersion and presence in VR experiences. The capacitive sensor that will be utilized in this project is supported by the project partner, Tactual Labs who, by the end of this project, will benefit by having its current innovative capacitive controller more intelligent.
