Takoma in Laval Virtual
The 21st edition of #LavalVirtual2019, the symbolic exhibition for virtual reality and augmented reality, was held from March the 20th to the 24th. Two of our VR experts, Bernard Cocchi and Antony Monnet, were among the show’s visitors, so that they could help us get acquainted with some new features!
Our two colleagues were particularly intrigued by the haptic part of the VR field.
Two products caught their attention:
– When grasping a virtual object, the Sense Glove provides the user with engaging haptic feedback, enabling it to recreate a grasping sensation thanks to a judicious combination of force feedback and vibration.
– The gloves sold by Manus VR make very precise control of the hands and fingers possible, thanks to a very advanced tracking system. Our experts were able to test the haptic feedback prototype (available this summer).
On the VR side, the Pimax 8K, a mainstream market VR helmet, appealed to our VR experts with its 200-degree field of view, which offers a more intense feeling of immersion.
Finally, in terms of augmented reality, the Magic Leap One stands out compared to its competitor, Microsoft’s HoloLens 1. Indeed, it offers a wider field of vision and the colours appear clearer and brighter.
