Breakthroughs in computer vision technology have allowed hand tracking to finally become feasible, unlocking the possibility of a more natural input method. Translating the rich, complex data that computer vision based hand tracking provides, in addition to considering human ergonomics and hardware constraints, make hand tracking as input a challenging design problem. We’ll give insights into our design journey over the past few years to bring a new input modality to VR.
