Facebook announced a bracelet that allows you to interact with VR objects

If VR technology ever goes mainstream, it will have to ditch the bulky

accessories, while maintaining the same functionality. Following this idea, Facebook announced the Tasbi device, which will make users forget what controller gloves are.

How it works

The promising development is a couplesmall bracelets worn on the wrist. They can shrink or vibrate, depending on the user’s actions in virtual reality. Unfortunately, Tasbi cannot yet independently track hand and finger movements. To do this, the device is proposed to be used in conjunction with special computer vision software and VR headset cameras. However, the developers see another way out of the problem: the position of the limbs can also be tracked using the technology of a probing electrical signal, which Facebook patented in early 2019.
