Facebook reveals hand tracking for Oculus Quest VR
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said that the social network’s Oculus virtual reality unit would debut a feature that enables its Quest VR headsets to track people’s hands, so they don’t have to use controllers, reporting fortune.com
The hand-tracking feature will be available in early 2020, Zuckerberg said Wednesday during the annual Oculus developer conference in San Jose. Zuckerberg pitched the hand-tracking update as way for people to interact inside virtual worlds in a more life-like manner without having to hold cumbersome controllers.
“So this means no controllers, no straps, no external sensors,” Zuckerberg said. “Just full range of motion with your hands.”
