Disrupting the VR/AR market | Cat Explorer Project
VR, AR and hand tracking are often considered to be futuristic technologies.
But they also have the potential to be the easiest to use. For the launch of our V4 software, we set ourselves the challenge of designing an application where someone who has never even touched a VR headset could figure out what to do with no instructions whatsoever. That application became Cat Explorer, which you can download now for Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
Perhaps the most important issue to consider when designing hand interactions with virtual objects is the lack of tactile perception and material support. In the physical world, we rely on tangible things to dissipate tremors and inaccuracies, offer mechanical constraints that restrict erratic motion, provide high fidelity feedback at the points of contact, and serve as a rest, allowing some of the arm muscles to relax while staying productive over longer periods of time.
