Mark Zuckerberg Shows off Oculus Prototype Gloves for Typing in VR


Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg on Thursday revealed a new prototype for VR gloves in photos from his tour of the Redmond, Washington Oculus Research, where a team led by chief scientist Michael Abrash are creating next-generation hardware. In one of the photos,  Zuckerberg bragged about performing superheroics with a pair of white motion control gloves.

“We’re working on new ways to bring your hands in virtual and augmented reality. Wearing these gloves, you can draw, type on a virtual keyboard, and even shoot webs like Spider Man. That’s what I’m doing here,” he wrote in the caption.

Zuckerberg writes, “The goal is to make VR and AR what we all want it to be: glasses small enough to take anywhere, software that lets you experience anything, and technology that that lets you interact with the virtual world just like you do with the physical one.”

The photos show VR gloves which appear to be connected to the Oculus headset wirelessly.
