Control iPad Objects Without Touching The Screen Using Augmented Reality Glove [Video]

Control iPad Objects Without Touching The Screen Using Augmented Reality Glove [Video]

Now you can reach into your iPad and interact with items in a virtual environment.

Yi Chen


What if you could reach into your iPad and move around the objects on the screen with your hand? Now you can do just that with the T(ether), an augmented reality glove that allows wearers to create virtual environments on the tablet with simple hand gestures. Users can manipulate the objects on the screen, such as picking them up, dropping them down, pushing them aside, or creating a new object by tracing the shape’s outline.

T(ether) can also be used by a multiple number of people to collaborate on the same virtual environment. By using Vicon motion capture cameras, the position and orientation of the tables, user’s heads, and hands, are tracked and spatially annotated in real-time. Watch the video below to see how the device works.
