A company patent describes the use of two wristbands to capture the movement of the opposite hand, thus helping the viewfinder cameras.
If yesterday we published how Sony registered a new sensor that would make it possible to track more than one VR user in the same space, today we get information about another patent that the company registered last June. It would be a method composed of two bracelets with sensors that would assist the front cameras of the HMD to record the position of hands and fingers with greater reliability and from more angles, thus offering a more real response when opening doors, pushing or collecting objects, etc.The patent even contemplates a possible use in the ankles.
This register does not guarantee the inclusion of devices of these features in the next version of PlayStation VR, because everything seems to point to that soon will be possible to achieve similar results without the need for crawlers additional on the wrist or specific accessories like Leap Motion. And while it seems like an interesting alternative to glove-based designs, you would miss the haptic possibilities in this product.
