Virtual and augmented reality are all about immersive digital experiences. But when it comes to converting real-life hand movements into virtual actions, most controllers are clunky enough to break the illusion. That’s why Israel-based Wearable Devices is looking to eliminate the need for controllers altogether with its Mudra Inspire, a new wristband that converts hand gestures and finger pressure into actions in VR and AR worlds. I tried it out for myself—its accuracy and responsiveness explain why the company thinks it can eliminate use of VR controllers.
