NASA’s astronauts use Manus VR’s gloves in training
Manus VR, a developer of a consumer VR glove, informs that NASA is using the company’s gloves in experiments to train NASA astronauts in mixed reality to prepare them for the International Space Station.
By recreating the International Space Station and matching this into virtual reality, NASA has created a more realistic training environment for their astronauts. The Manus VR glove provides the astronauts with a representation of their hands and intuitive interaction. NASA has been working with an engineering sample of the Manus VR glove. “This is an amazing opportunity to showcase what the Manus VR glove can do for VR, AR and Mixed Reality. NASA is looking forward to work with the upcoming Manus VR development kit and the Manus VR Tracking Bracelet for SteamVR Tracking,” Manus VR writes in a press statement.
