VR company Leap Motion has released a detailed blog post, demonstrating three new ways of interacting with objects in a virtual reality environment, using information from the worn head-mounted display and an approximation of the user’s shoulder position as a reference point.
The three prototypes provide ways to interact with objects from a distance using a range of gestures, inspired by telekinesis. Users can also summon objects towards them, manipulate and interact with them, as well as returning them to their original position.
As I mentioned in our report on the new HTC Vive Pro, I had the chance to try this new headset, fitted with a Magic Leap sensor and was impressed with how accurate it was and how it added to the experience. (BR) (HTC Vive Pro Matches Visuals of Samsung Odyssey)
