The new glove is integrated and designed for Oculus Quest, Oculus Link, Oculus Rift S, Microsoft Windows Mixed Reality, HTC Vive Cosmos, HTC Vive Pro, HTC Focus Plus, and Varjo VR headset technology, a recent news release says. According to the company, The Forte Data Glove is the first haptic glove for the HTC Cosmos and Microsoft Windows Mixed Reality Headsets and the first haptic VR glove to fully support Oculus Quest Link.
The company reports that the Forte Data Glove provides portable, all-day wireless capability for missing touch feedback for training for business and enhanced VR gaming experiences.
