Noitom Announces Hi5 Virtual Reality Glove

Hi5 VR Glove is a wireless, full-finger movement, sensor-based glove that delivers rapid hand actions in virtual reality environments. Noitom first introduced the Hi5 VR Glove at CES 2017 where the public got to see an early prototype. The Business Edition of Hi5 VR Glove delivers a professional solution for businesses to create immersive, interactive experiences in virtual reality where the hands can be used naturally in the environment.

Hi5 VR Glove features include low latency at ±5 ms latency, haptic feedback with a programmable vibration rumbler, and replaceable batteries for continuous play. The gloves work with just one AA battery and require no recharging time. SDK’s are included for Unity and UNREAL engine. The Hi5 VR Glove requires a set of motion trackers for positional tracking and is compatible with HTC VIVE.™

“The ability to capture complete hand movement and simulate all five fingers in VR in addition to providing complete motion is a capability we have finally been able to achieve with the Hi5 VR Glove,” says Dr. Tristan Dai, CTO of Noitom and the creator of Hi5. “With freedom of movement and accurately captured data, Hi5 users will be able to immerse themselves seamlessly into their virtual worlds.”

The Hi5 VR Glove Business Edition is geared toward companies and entrepreneurs who want to create interactive experiences with their commercial projects using intricate hand movements. Hi5 VR Glove comes with a Commercial License giving businesses free reign to develop their own products for gaming, training, simulation and entertainment.
