The story

The Teslasuit Glove can be used separately or with the suit and integrates haptics, motion capture, biometry and force feedback.

Teslasuit said the gloves will debut at CES in January and will ship in the second half of 2020.

The gloves are aimed at a range of business applications, from enterprise training to rehabilitation.

The wireless gloves, which can be paired with the suit via WiFi to offer near full-body immersion, boast haptics equipped with a 3×3 display for each finger that contribute to tactile sense, enabling users to feel virtual textures naturally.

They also detect the movements of the wearer’s hands and mirror them accurately in VR. The integrated biometric system gathers data in real-time on emotional state, stress level and heart rate.

Teslasuit demonstrated several training applications for its full-body suit at CES 2019. They included astronaut training, fuel loading in oil and gas, emergency evacuation, and health and safety within a power plant.

Teslasuit partner Vision Lab Apps is also heading to CES 2020 to showcase an experience that will allow users to train for work at height.
