We have seen a number of innovations aimed at virtual and augmented reality applications. These include haptic VR gloves and an AR screen that duplicates AR displays without the need for headsets. Now a startup in Vellore, India named Vicara has developed a gesture control that could make manipulating an AR or VR environment as easy as pointing a finger. Gestural controls are not new. Leap Motion developed a platform that allows mobile devices with VR support to sense finger motions and then incorporate these into VR. Microsoft also developed Kinect, an upgrade for the Xbox 360. However, both of these required users to hold their hands up, which could be exhausting over time. Kai by Vicara intends to give users more intuitive control.
